'Boothby Graffoe is a multi-talented, darkly hilarious, grade A British eccentric, who can twist your funny bone one minute, and break your heart the next. A musical comedy act who is more musical than most musicians, and funnier than most comedians.' - Stewart Lee
'If I had to compare him to anyone, it would be Spike Milligan.' - Omid Djalili
Boothby Graffoe tour dates
Comedian, compere and playwright. This grumpy old man per excellence presents the BBC Radio 4 show 'Excess Baggage' and has written four plays including 'An Evening With Gary Lineker' and 'Live Bed Show'.
His stand-up topics range from vigorous yodelling to mediaeval literature via death by drink. His delivery is relaxed and sardonic, but his shows are a surprising, dark and witty treat.
He's also one of the many 'Grumpy Old Men' that appear on BBC 2's hit show.
'The funniest and most honest comic of his generation' (The List).
Arthur Smith tour dates
Winner English Comedian of the Year 2009.
Winner of the Channel 4 'So You Think You're Funny' comedy competition.
'Osborn's script is as crisp and polished as you might expect if you know his stand-up and delivered accordingly with clarity, precision and a fine sense of how each line should be timed' (Chortle).
Matthew Osborn tour dates
Simon is a British Comedy Award nominee, Chortle Award winner, Perrier Award nominee, and Sony Radio Award winner. He's had his own Radio 1 series and several Radio 4 series, along with several cult television series including BBC2's Attention Scum.

'Convention-defying, innovative stuff. Simon Munnery is a must-see' (The Times)
'Simon Munnery is an avant-garde comedy god' (Time Out)
'Intelligence, wit and originality... Simon Munnery, the God particle of Alternative Comedy' (Chortle).
Simon Munnery tour dates
Joe Lycett is a hugely talented comedian with an unaffected, relaxed and effortless stage presence. An appealing, engaging and natural performer. His comedy career started off at Manchester University, winning the Chortle Student Comedy Award in 2009.
'Imaginative and cheekily subversive comedy... entertainingly mischievous... An intensely charming and talented young comic' (The Guardian)
'Joe Lycett is one of the strongest emerging comedy talents we've seen in a long time. This young man has a huge future' (Time Out)
'A delightfully natural style that builds a real connection with the audience... an accomplished storyteller... Finds brilliance in what could be merely workaday' (Chortle)
'Rising talent Joe Lycett already possesses the confidence and relaxed, homely charm of an old campaigner' (The Times).
