Carl started performing stand-up regularly in the early part of 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the most exciting new comics climbing the comedy ladder.

Not to be missed' (Broadway Baby) 'One of the most engaging and bendy-minded comics on the circuit' (The Guardian) 'He's a remarkable talent – a relaxed, easygoing anecdotalist with an eye for funny details. An hour in his company is a true delight' (Time Out). Carl Donnelly was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2016.

Originally from Nottingham, Sarah Keyworth is becoming a regular on the London circuit and has supported Stewart Francis on tour. Her material is a mix of honest anecdotal storytelling about her Midlands upbringing, made surreal with the occasional addition of a silly observation. She delivers sharp lines with a cheeky smile and moments of sudden deadpan that leave the audience wanting more.
