The stand-up comedian, actor and improviser has been spreading joy and nonsense to all four corners of England, as well as the more choice bits of Wales and Scotland over the past few years. Crowned Comedy Cafe New Act of the Year in 2009, Ben hosted the prestigious Big Value Comedy Showcase at the Edinburgh festival in 2012.
'A sharp and crafty gagsmith with wittily obtuse takes on an impressively wide range of topics, bringing flair and confidence to them all' (http://www.chortle.co.uk)
'Highly promising... an accomplished comic' (Time Out)

Ben Van Der Velde tour dates
His wholly original social commentary, observations and anecdotes are his trade mark. He brings intelligent material as well as simple immature jokes to any room. He enjoys gigging all over the country to any audience, whether he is MC or doing a set.
'Hilarious... takes this year's Fringe by the scruff of the neck' (Metro)
'Destined for greatness... he's got charm, anecdotes, callbacks and a worrying father' (The Sunday Times)
'One of the UK's best young observationalists' (The Guardian)
'Charming and good looking... Martin looks to me like a late-stage prototype of the genuine article' (Chortle).
Chris Martin tour dates
A completely unique and new form of mind reading - even though he says he can't read minds! Chris's astounding skills are self taught and he conceives and designs all of his own tricks and effects. With regular appearances on TV and radio including a recent appearance on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Two's Dick and Dom's Funny Business, Chris has attracted celebrity fans including Ricky Gervais, Jonathan Ross, Tim Minchin, Kelly Osbourne, Agyness Deyn and Dannii Minogue (who even proposed to him!).

right' (Time Out)

'An exceptional talent with language' (Chortle)
'Who knew that melancholy could be so enjoyable?... an assured piece of work
that demonstrates an impressive command of tone' (Fest)
'Liam Williams's exceptional new show, delivered with marvellous moroseness, also fizzes with wit, intelligence and eloquence' (The Daily Telegraph)
