'Goes for the jugular. Quick wit, frank and engaging' (The Independent)

'She may present herself as just one of the girls, but this young Londoner has clearly got the potential to really stand out' (The Scotsman).

Andy Askins' air of vulnerability and innocent child-like qualities mislead the crowd heightening the impact of his killer lines. With his guitar and his wickedly dry sense of humour he captivates everybody with an eclectic mix of offbeat comical songs and parodies. A talented musician with an appealing voice and cheeky magnetism, he never fails to leave his mark.
Dark, dark humour and killer timing.
'An awful lot of charm. Although he looks mild-mannered and studious, he actually packs a wry, cheeky wit. There is, most definitely, something warmly alluring about him. His winning persona goes a long way...between the songs, the charming banter works well' (Chortle).
Andy Askins tour dates
Armed with a wide smile, her warmth on and off the stage lets her get away with murder. One of BBC's award-winning 3 Non-Blondes. Ninia is a favourite guest and commentator for many popular discussion shows, for example Sky Comedy Close Up. Other television appearances include Total Wipeout and Celebrity Masterchef whilst her vocal talents can be heard in CBeebies’ Tinga Tinga Tales from February 2010.
While Ninia’s popularity on television continues to soar, her stand-up remains at the highest level. She is a regular headliner at all the top venues across the UK, such as Jongleurs, Up the Creek, The Banana Cabaret, Glee Clubs and Bound & Gagged.
'The Comedy Assassin' (The Voice).
Ninia Benjamin tour dates
No stranger to the circuit, he has won many awards and his TV appearances include Punt & Dennis, Rory Bremner and Paul Merton. He has also been warm-up comedian for Smith & Jones; in fact Mel Smith called him 'The best warm-up act in the business'.
In 2004 Wilty hit the headlines for the wrong reasons after an unwanted genital piercing in a camping accident at the Glastonbury Festival. That didn't stop him compering the cabaret tent two days later. 'I decided to show the front row the close-ups on my digital camera. As I went along the line, their heads went back in disgust. It was like a Mexican wave of revulsion.' What a professional!
