Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet.
Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation.
'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny)
'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke)
'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).

Robert tells engaging stories, strong jokes and occasionally performs a bit of musical comedy. Material derives from his unusual life and abstract perspective as he twists his thoughts in a peculiar fashion culminating in always clever, often wordy and sometimes cruel humour.
'Robert White, probably – no definitely – the only asperger, dyslexic, cross lateral,
gay, quarter-Welsh, webbed toed comedian on the circuit' (The Guardian).

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.

Lloyd started comedy in 2009 and now performs regularly on professional nights at comedy clubs all across the UK. His confidence and ability to easily engage with the audience has earned him a number of compering residencies, including Get Up Stand Up in London and Therapy Rooms Comedy Club in Tunbridge Wells.
'Inherently funny: voice of an angel' body of a trucker... very neat lines in his comic repertoire' (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
'... the next big thing’(FHM)
'There's no doubt about it; Lloyd Griffith is the king of the unexpected. His sense of fun is infectious, his singing voice faultless and his anecdotes are told with boundless confidence. Griffith has clearly established his own style of comedy' (Three Weeks).
