Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Previous winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. Travels the UK with his guitar, creating laughter wherever he goes, and is also a writer, performer and the resident musician on Radio 4's 'The Now Show'.
'The country's leading musical satirist' (The Times).
'Well crafted, well sung, his songs are just plain funny' (The Guardian).
'Less of him could really turn out to be more than he ever was' (The Scotsman).
'Mitch is a highly intelligent comic who fires out funny material at the speed of a machine gun. You really do have to pay attention to him, but do so because the content does deserve to be heard and appreciated' (One4Review).
Mitch Benn tour dates
Extremely distinctive comedy from a former London solicitor.
'Posh and witty... exquisitely funny... one of the new comics making waves' (Time Out)
'His comedy is intelligent and so up to date it could be read by Jon Snow' (Cream of
'There's intelligent wit, honesty and more interesting and provocative thoughts in his show than many comics manage in a decade' (The Scotsman)
'His distinctive style stands out – a winning mixture of pomposity, insecurity and emotional incompetence, while the fury-inducing importance he places on the trivial makes for a winning comic stance' (Chortle).
Andrew Watts tour dates
James is an imaginative West Country comedian. As seen on Russell Howard's Good News (BBC), Ricky Gervais' Extras (BBC) and host of World Cup Round Up (Sky Sports). He is currently filming a TV show about wine and this August will be taking his new solo show - James Dowdeswell's Perfect Pub to the Edinburgh Fringe.
'An excellent line in comedy' (The Guardian)
'A quirky impressionist with very funny material' (The Times)
'His intelligent and inventive storytelling is delivered from a slightly strange perspective which is both entertaining and captivating' (Funhouse Comedy).
James Dowdeswell tour dates
Since November 2008 Danny Ward has been travelling Great Britain, often in his T reg Polo, sometimes on the coach, entertaining audiences with his unique style of observational humour.
A self proclaimed tataholic, Danny Ward is on a mission to spread the lesson he refuses to learn – when you try and do things on the cheap, it ends up costing you more.
He was nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year in 2013 and has gigged extensively across the UK including comedy venues such as The Glee Clubs, Jongleurs, The Highlight, Just The Tonic, Baby Blue, Komedia, the Bearcat and Downstairs At The Kings Head.
He has also performed in Northern Ireland at the Belfast Empire, as well as in Germany, Tenerife, Maastricht and Croatia.
'Danny Ward's observational humour is brilliantly delivered... This is top quality stand up...' (Three Weeks)
'Danny Ward clicked with the capacity crowd immediately and his brilliantly timed... approach was bolstered by some really tight, strong material' (Bournmouth Echo)?.
