Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Comedian who was a 2008 Hackney Empire finalist renowned for his super-high energy performance. Imran has a unique voice stamping his mark for positive, uplifting comedy at every turn.
Born in Mombasa, Kenya and raised in the UK with a brief stint at school in the USA, Imran has also travelled much of the world including Israel/Palestine, Jordan and Saudi Arabia during the Lebanon Crisis in 2006. His work has been inspired by this rich multicultural background, giving him a youthful, energetic and highly original voice that embodies the multi-cultural wealth that exists in modern Britain.
He seamlessly switches between styles with graceful fluidity, repeatedly delivering heavy-weight punch lines with enormous panache. His seemingly light-hearted satire is mixed with hard-hitting topical commentary on contemporary issues that culminate into a tour de force of comedy offering an all-embracing sentiment in his trademark styling
'Imran Yusuf's show heralds the birth of a new comedy star. Intelligent, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny, it's a glorious debut' (Time Out).

Since reaching the final of So You Think You're Funny? 2004, Rob has gone on to become a very much in demand act on the UK and Irish circuit as both compere and stand up comedian.
He '... gives audiences who want their laughs kept straight forward exactly what they want... told with the sort of natural chattiness it's impossible to dislike'(http//:www.chortle.co.uk).
Rob Collins tour dates
Paddy has been tour support for Rhod Gilbert, Lucy Porter and Micky Flanagan.
He started Stand-Up in December 2001 only to be interrupted with a couple of comedies at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and a couple of surreal commercials in far off lands, before returning to his new found passion.
A naturally funny, warm comic who plays all the big (and small) clubs in the UK. He has also gigged in South Africa, Germany, Ireland, Croatia, Estonia, Malta, and lil' ol' Slovenia.
'... simply a scream' (The Daily Telegraph)
'... comedy the way it should be: a laugh-a-minute which leaves the audience wishing the show was just a little bit longer... gentle Irish lilt belies a mischievous sense of humour' (Fest).
'Excellent stand-up, Paddy Lennox, is laid-back and charismatic. Vastly entertaining. This show proves that the AAA stand-up comedians have great things ahead of them' (Three Weeks).
Paddy Lennox tour dates
'Mowten is a charming and engaging stand-up, funny and interesting, the kind of man who you could spend entire evenings with shooting the breeze in bonhomie.
His life is a fascinating one, from living in a cult to losing a massive inheritance, and he is a skilled storyteller, so go, sit back and enjoy the twists and turns that made Mowten' (The Fix 2007).
'Intelligent and warm and very very funny. Mowten is one of the most honest and fearless comics I have seen' (Shappi Khorsandi)
'Highly original and amusing' (Time Out)
'Mowten's an instantly likeable stand-up with bags of charm and an easy manner' (Chortle)
'A charismatic comedian, with a long future in stand up' (Three Weeks).
