Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
A hugely talented, diverse young comedian whose shows are cerebral, witty and meticulously researched, full of quirky ideas and cracking puns. His solo show, Making Fish Laugh, at the 2003 Edinburgh Festival earned him a Perrier Award nomination and has brought him a much deserved higher profile on the comedy circuit.
'Horne has superb timing and fascinating delivery... Pure comedy gold’ (Metro)
A beguiling blend of the smart and the stupid... a real delight' (Sunday Times)
'Certainly the most charming and probably the funniest half-hour of the radio week'
Alex Horne tour dates
Romesh burst onto the comedy circuit in 2010, gigging regularly at top venues all over the country. As well as turning in storming turns on a regular basis, he has also found time to reach the Latitude New Act Final 2010, The So You Think You're Funny? Final 2010 as well as coming runner up in The Amused Moose Laugh Off 2010.
He has forged a fearsome reputation with a set that combines cutting one liners with an acerbic take on the world around him.
'Extraordinarily hilarious' (Three Weeks)
'Plenty to enjoy in his ultra sardonic set' (Chortle)
'his ability to write bitingly fresh gags marks him out from the crowd... Ranganathan's punchlines are sharper and funnier than many of his peers' (The Guardian).
Romesh Ranganathan tour dates
'Ed Gamble began his comedy career writing, performing and directing with the Durham Revue in 2004, and in 2007 made the finals of the Chortle/Revels Student Comedy Award. In 2009, he appeared as part of the Comedy Zone showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe.
'Gamble is also co-writer and co-host of the Peacock and Gamble Podcast, with Ray Peacock, and was named best compere in the 2014 Chortle Awards, where he was also nominated for best club comic' (http://www.chortle.co.uk).
Ed Gamble tour dates
Winner: Best Debut Show – 2009 Leicester Comedy Festival.
John has quickly made his name as one of the most quick-witted, engaging comedians on the circuit. He's the latest to burst out of Bristol's hotbed of talent and he has stories to tell, banter to have and bombs to drop.
'Funnier than all of them, his self-deprecation and Olympic ad-libbing would have you skipping happily down even the darkest alley' (Venue)
'One man, one microphone, one fantastically funny show' (Three Weeks)
'Like discovering buried treasure' (Fest)
'Comedy's best kept secret' (The Skinny)
'A complete and utter natural' (Russell Howard)
'... fantastically entertaining' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'Sparkling stand-up' (The Times)
'One of the most consistently pleasing hours on the fringe' (The Independent)
'One of the most naturally gifted comedians I've seen' (The Daily Telegraph).
