Hot Water Comedian of the Year Nina exploded on to the comedy scene in 2011 and is now a regular on the UK circuit performing at clubs and venues all over the UK and beyond. Sometimes outrageous, always hilarious, observational and storytelling comedy for all. A persona you will fall in love with. A bolshier Mrs Merton she's not one to suffer fools lightly so watch out for a razor sharp wit used at will. An act that will leave you breathless and shouting for more! 2012's Search For A Star: 'Charming, naughty, funny... What's not to like?' (Rick Hulse). 'A great routine, which was laugh out loud funny - definitely one to watch' (Jo Jo Sutherland).

Hot comedy talent from Manchester. It's fair to say that everything Vince Atta touches turns to gold. His high-octane performances, stunning delivery and flawless array of impressions leave you short of breath. With a broad, wonderful spectrum of material ranging from students, Spanish horses in a kitchen, psychotic London ex-girlfriends, pointless racial pride and the advantages of an alcoholic mother, Atta brings an inspiring touch of pathos which demonstrates an unerring ability to turn experience into bullet proof comedy. His festival shows Atta, Bowman and Hoo (2005) and Atta, Bowman and Hoo 2 (2006) were both among the most successful shows in their respective Manchester Comedy Festivals. '... the exciting and energetic Vince Atta. With his variety of anecdotes, stories and observations, he is permanently on a high which he manages to transfer to his audience; whilst bringing to life any character he mentions' (Funhouse Comedy).

The comic invention of acclaimed character-comedian Keith Carter. Stacy Silcox is a joke teller, impressionist and loner. A dark light entertainer, Stacy is oddly familiar and familiarly odd.
