'Slick stagecraft, bags of energy' (Chortle)
'A mighty fine comic' (The Guardian)
'With looks, confidence, charm and great material, expect other comedians to
lynch him' (The Sunday Times).
Tom Deacon tour dates
Nathan is a young black British comic, gigging on both the mainstream and black comedy circuit. His set is highly obsevational, 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)
'A huge star in the near future’ (http://www.one4review.com).
Nathan Caton tour dates
Helen Arney is a musical comedian and geek songstress, playing the finest ukulele based comedy songs. One third of science comedy phenomenon 'Festival of the Spoken Nerd', one half of comedy girl band duo 'The Balconettes', her songs have been heard on BBC Radio 4 and on tour with Robin Ince and professorial Brian Cox.
'Champion of musical whims' (Evening Standard).
Helen Arney tour dates
After growing up in '80s South-East London and surviving a post-Bush, post-racial, post-Thatcher, post-Twilight Society, Dane realised that it was a moral obligation to chronicle and in some places parody the human experience and contemporary western culture.
'Brilliant' (Comedy Blogedy)
'Intelligent and genuinely hilarious' (Adam Bloom)
'Observational comedy at its finest' (The Independent)
'Baptiste is a comical genius' (http://www.EdFestMag.com)
'A thunderingly charismatic comic' (The Guardian).
Dane J Baptiste tour dates
One of the new wave of bright young things making a name for themselves.
Matt Rudge tour dates
Since November 2008 Danny Ward has been travelling Great Britain, often in his T reg Polo, sometimes on the coach, entertaining audiences with his unique style of observational humour.
A self proclaimed tataholic, Danny Ward is on a mission to spread the lesson he refuses to learn – when you try and do things on the cheap, it ends up costing you more.
He was nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year in 2013 and has gigged extensively across the UK including comedy venues such as The Glee Clubs, Jongleurs, The Highlight, Just The Tonic, Baby Blue, Komedia, the Bearcat and Downstairs At The Kings Head.
He has also performed in Northern Ireland at the Belfast Empire, as well as in Germany, Tenerife, Maastricht and Croatia.
'Danny Ward's observational humour is brilliantly delivered... This is top quality stand up...' (Three Weeks)
'Danny Ward clicked with the capacity crowd immediately and his brilliantly timed... approach was bolstered by some really tight, strong material' (Bournmouth Echo)?.
Danny Ward tour dates
Welsh Unsigned Stand Up winner 2011, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2012 and BBC Radio 2 New Comedy Award 2012 finalist.
'A properly original comedy mind' (The Guardian)
'With his somewhat miserable persona he enthralls his audiences through his skilfully crafted stories' (Funhouse Comedy).
Matt Rees tour dates
'Hugely professional... likeable, animated and fluid with a first-rate sense of timing' (Chortle)
'He has charm, charisma and success written all over him' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'Obviously born to be a comic’ (The Scotsman).
Paul McCaffrey tour dates
Romesh burst onto the comedy circuit in 2010, gigging regularly at top venues all over the country. As well as turning in storming turns on a regular basis, he has also found time to reach the Latitude New Act Final 2010, The So You Think You're Funny? Final 2010 as well as coming runner up in The Amused Moose Laugh Off 2010.
He has forged a fearsome reputation with a set that combines cutting one liners with an acerbic take on the world around him.
'Extraordinarily hilarious' (Three Weeks)
'Plenty to enjoy in his ultra sardonic set' (Chortle)
'his ability to write bitingly fresh gags marks him out from the crowd... Ranganathan's punchlines are sharper and funnier than many of his peers' (The Guardian).
Romesh Ranganathan tour dates
'Utterly delightful and hugely talented... Destined for hugeness' (Time Out)
'When Lou rips a room into hysteria, she really rips it hard' (The Sun)
'... an hour of non-stop entertainment with seriously big laughs, wild and free and very, very funny’ (Chortle)
'... crazy off-beat surrealism' (The Independent).
Lou Sanders tour dates
One of the new crop of emerging acts, Ian Smith employs a careful, unhurried delivery that conceals a nicely pointed attitude with a sack full of neat gags to match.
'Fantastically funny' (The Times)
'Star of the future' (Time Out).
'... delightfully offbeat writing, a mastery of phrasing and summons up some fine comic images. A talent, for sure' (http://www.chortle.co.uk).
Ian Smith tour dates
