Joe Lycett is a hugely talented comedian with an unaffected, relaxed and effortless stage presence. An appealing, engaging and natural performer.
'Imaginative and cheekily subversive comedy... entertainingly mischievous... An intensely charming and talented young comic' (The Guardian)
'Joe Lycett is one of the strongest emerging comedy talents we've seen in a long time. This young man has a huge future' (Time Out)
'A delightfully natural style that builds a real connection with the audience... an accomplished storyteller... Finds brilliance in what could be merely workaday' (Chortle)
'Rising talent Joe Lycett already possesses the confidence and relaxed, homely charm of an old campaigner' (The Times).

Gary Delaney is a razor sharp one-liner comedian, who is widely regarded as being the most quotable comic on the circuit. The high quantity of stand out gags leaves the audience struggling to remember them all. He regularly plays all the big clubs including The Comedy Store, Highlight, Jongleurs, Komedia, Glee, Rawhide, The Frog and Bucket, Hyena, Baby Blue, The Stand, Comedy Café, Lee Hurst's Backyard, Banana Cabaret and headlines at clubs throughout the UK.
Gary is a regular guest on Mock The Week and has also recently appeared on Dave's 'One Night Stand', Comedy Central's 'Comedy Blue' and on Channel 4's 'Robert's Web' as well as Radio 4's 'Loose Ends' and Radio 2's 'Russell Kane's Whistle-Stop Tour'. His debut show 'Purist' was a big hit at the Edinburgh Festival in 2010, selling out every night and receiving many four and five star reviews.
'Gary Delaney has more quality jokes in this hour than many comics have in their entire careers… Quite brilliant' (The Scotsman).
'I laughed and I laughed and I laughed! A master craftsman' (The Times)
'Taut, brilliant one-liners. Delaney was worth the price of admission alone' (Chortle)
'... Razor sharp one-liners' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Quickfire material of the very highest quality is pretty much guaranteed from the
fast-thinking Delaney, a master of the deadpan one-liner... Expect a cavalcade of brilliantly inventive puns' (The Guardian).

'Barbara Nice - ordinary housewife extraodinaire - has given up the domestic bliss of Tupperware and Poundstretcher shops for the unpredictability of the comedy circuit (her husband thinks she's at the bingo). No audience is too rowdy for her to handle - she's already raised five teenagers. She believes in bargains, Take a Break magazine, getting the most from life. Oh and Stage-diving! This well observed comedy character is so likeable that she draws even the most cynical of audiences and takes them along for a ride. 'A hybrid between Victoria Wood and Mrs Merton' - The Times.
Mrs Barbara Nice (Janice Connolly) tour dates
Sara Pascoe is a British writer, stand-up comedian and actress. She has appeared in a number of television programmes - Campus, Live At The Apollo, QI, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week among others - as well as an all-female sketch show and her own Edinburgh show, and runs comedy club The House Of Mirth.
Sara's stand-up is influenced by her joint favourite heroes, Jodie Marsh and Winston Churchill.
'Always intelligent and occasionally exquisite' (The Independent)
'Pascoe uses erudite references as just one strand of an offbeat worldview, offset by moments of gloriously deliberate dumbness and delivered with nothing less than full-megawatt charisma' (The Guardian)
'... defiantly idiosyncratic and highly accessible' (Evening Standard).
Sara Pascoe tour dates
Lucy is a hugely talented comedy actress and writer. She was nominated in 2014 for Best Newcomer at the Fosters Comedy Awards for her debut show We Can work
It Out. In 2012 she was the winner of The BBC New Comedy Award and won the Chortle Award For Best Newcomer. Lucy was a finalist in the Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year 2013 and in August 2011 she was also ranked joint third in the Gilded Balloon's nationwide stand-up comedy competition So You Think You're Funny?.
'She has that intangible something that gives her an innately charismatic stage
presence. She's slight and vulnerable, a bit ditzy, and utterly charming... A star is born' (Chortle)
'Perfect for the times' (The Guardian)
'She's got the timing of Les Dawson... an absolute natural' (Johnny Vegas)
'Devastating comic timing' (The Stage)
'The next Victoria Wood in the making' (Arthur Smith)
'The stage Beaumont is a riot!' (The Scotsman).
