Described as the 'Leonard Cohen of comedy', Andrew Lawrence is the master of his game. As seen on BBC1's 'Michael Mcintyre's Roadshow' and Channel 4's 'Best of The Brighton Comedy Festival', Andrew is also a double 'If' comedy award nominee. '... a hard act to follow' (Chortle) 'Anyone who gives this spikily inventive performer the time of day will realise they're in the presence of an A-list talent' (The Guardian) 'Few people have caught the irritated, misanthropic mood of the moment better than this supreme misfit; the only wonder is that it's taking Lawrence so long to become a national institution' (The Daily Telegraph) 'Lawrence rips the cynical heart from his chest and wears it defiantly on his sleeve' (Metro) 'Powerful, sad, angry, true stuff' (The Scotsman) '... you owe it to yourself to see him' (The Daily Mirror) 'This show is a must see without a doubt' (Edinburgh Reporter).

Chris Betts has performed all across Canada and the United States at independent venues, comedy clubs, and international festivals including the Comedy Works in Montreal, SXSW and the Zulu Comedy Festival. He moved to London in 2012, since when he has appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a finalist in the Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year 2014. He has received numerous plaudits for his sharp material and relaxed stage presence. Chris Betts’ mind is a curious place, where the philosophical meets the ridiculous. His material is a perfect balance of incisive social satire and complete silliness. He has a style that is equal parts confident, thoughtful, ridiculous and mischievous. 'Chris Betts is tremendous' (Such Small Portions) 'Betts is in the upper echelon of the city's performers; universally respected and admired for his professionalism, dedication and unique perspective of the world' (www.examiner.com) 'unhurried delivery that reeled the audience in... unflappable stage presence' (London Is Funny) '... properly hilarious' (What's On London) '... an enticing prospect, a Canadian who deals in off-kilter thoughts sharpened by the occasional prod at taboo topics' (The Independent).
