'She has me in stitches' (Alan Carr)
'Blew my socks off... doesn't dwell too much on lady issues... Funny in her own right... brilliant, clever and she's gonna be huge' (BBC Tees).
Karen Bayley tour dates
Nathan is a young black British comic, gigging on both the mainstream and black comedy circuit. His set is highly observational, influenced by his culture and upbringing, and also coming from a young person's outlook on life, from the well-known Nigerian traffic warden and the always-disciplining West-Indian mother, to MTV's Pimp my Ride.
'Excellent story-telling skills keep the crowd easily entertained' (Three Weeks).
‘Caton is probably the most exciting young black comic on the scene’ (Fest Magazine).
'Caton's a slick performer with an unbeatable stage attitude and the confident air of someone much more experienced' (Chortle).
'Compelling, well-observed stand-up... He specialises in laidback, on-the-nose material, chopping down fools of all colours, both in day-to-day life and in the media' (The Guardian).
Nathan Caton was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2015.

'Australian oddball and congenial story-teller Adam Vincent, with his hilarious observations and individual outlook on his discoveries' (Funhouse Comedy).
Adam Scott Vincent is a core writer of Channel 4’s award-winning satirical show 'The Last Leg'. He was a semi-finalist in NBC’s 'Last Comic Standing' and is a regular Brighton Fringe favourite.
"Hilariously irreverent... Vincent is undeniably one of the more talented comedians I have seen at the Fringe" (Broadway Baby).
"This Australian gem forced to live in Bedford where he can’t escape the clutches of marriage, children and monthly payments to the man... ultimately, it’s delivered with compassion. You will feel the laughs the day after" (The Bullman blog).
Adam Vincent tour dates
'Skinhead, intellectual, and specialist compere, Roger Monkhouse employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience' (Glee)
'His laconic delivery shields an engaging persona and an enquiring mind' (The Guardian)
'Pulls punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air... Saucy - and uncompromisingly so - sometimes topical, sometimes punny, sometimes clever, sometimes daft... There is, in short, something in this varied comedy menu for every taste... A gifted natural... One of the consummate professionals of the stand-up circuit' (Chortle)
'... one of the most experienced acts in the business. His deadpan style and quick wit make him one of the best acts out there, and he is a regular fixture at top venues all over the country, as well as performing extensively throughout the rest of the world' (Funhouse Comedy).
