Dave Award winner, triple Perrier Award nominee and BBC New Comedy award winner, Dan Antopolski is one of the fastest rising stars in comedy.

Winning over critics and fans alike, James Acaster has earned himself a reputation as one of the most hotly tipped acts of 2012. Effortlessly confident, James's appreciation for the whimsy and detail of everyday life are a breath of fresh air. His laid back style, playful wit and appetite for the unconventional make for an evening of mirth and hilarity, and a night in his company is a treat to behold.
Since winning Laughing Boy New Act of the Year, James has gone from strength to strength appearing on Dave's One Night Stand, Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three) and Show & Tell (E4) whilst also playing to over 100,000 people on tour with Milton Jones.
'Curious, original, immensely enjoyable stuff' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Deliciously daft and no slouch in the surprises department... One of comedy’s most original voices' (Evening Standard)
'Reminiscent of Stewart Lee or Richard Herring but suffused with enough of his
own personality to sound crisp and fresh' (The Independent)
'Stand-up of the highest most playful order' (The Guardian).
James Acaster 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
A comedian, radio producer and writer. He was born in Hong Kong, and moved to Australia aged 12, before settling in the UK at 19. He has worked as a researcher for QI, and co-created the Radio 4 panel show The Museum of Curiosity.
Dan Schreiber tour dates
Sara Pascoe is a British writer, stand-up comedian and actress. She has appeared in a number of television programmes - Campus, Live At The Apollo, QI, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week among others - as well as an all-female sketch show and her own Edinburgh show, and runs comedy club The House Of Mirth.
Sara's stand-up is influenced by her joint favourite heroes, Jodie Marsh and Winston Churchill.
'Always intelligent and occasionally exquisite' (The Independent)
'Pascoe uses erudite references as just one strand of an offbeat worldview, offset by moments of gloriously deliberate dumbness and delivered with nothing less than full-megawatt charisma' (The Guardian)
'... defiantly idiosyncratic and highly accessible' (Evening Standard).
Sara Pascoe tour dates
Jessica has been performing improvised comedy and working as a comedy actress since 2005. In January 2008 she hit the UK stand up circuit like a thunderbolt of joy and was a finalist in the Funny Women's Awards 2010.
She had a very successful one woman show 'Luxury Tramp', which ran at the Brighton Fringe. A review of her show concluded that she is clever, silly and most importantly funny and that she can hold her own with any other stand up, male or female.
'Fostekew is a hugely engaging presence and there's something reassuringly honest about her... Consistently hilarious' (Fest)
'Great fun' (Guardian).
