Laugh : Nathan Caton, George Ryegold aka Toby Williams, Lucy Beaumont, Danny Deegan, John Robins
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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.

Alter ego of Toby Williams.
Amused Moose Laughter Awards Top 10 Comedy Show 2013, Scotsman's Top 5 Comedy Show at the Fringe 2012 and Winner of Best Show at Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival 2011.
'Dr George Ryegold has, I am delighted to report, lost none of his dyspeptic misanthropy... he is not so much close to the bone as shaving slices off it. But trust him, he is a doctor. Go and be roundly abused by Doctor George – you’ll feel better for it' (The Scotsman)
'Tremendous fun... it's stuff like this that makes the fringe great' (Three Weeks)
'Lashings of gallows humour... beautifully crafted' (The Stage)
'Wicked...twisted...deliciously dark' (Time Out)
'...as sick as Jim Jeffries, but with the vocabulary of Stephen Fry...some of the most hilariously bad-taste lines of the festival' (Chortle).
George Ryegold aka Toby Williams tour dates
Razor sharp Mancunian with a shed load of brutally funny anecdotes about his much put-upon friend 'Rudgie'. Plus wicked witticisms that belie his fresh-faced boy band demeanour. Not even bovver boys 'Five' got this near-to-the-knuckle. Runner-up in the City Life Comedian of the year 2003 and fresh from a sold-out, critically acclaimed solo show at the Manchester Comedy Festival.
'His seamless interactions with the crowd demonstrate that he's a natural-born comedian... appealing to both the young and old, female and male' (Three Weeks).

John is a comedian, broadcaster and voice over artist based in London. He presents a weekly show on Radio X alongside friend and fellow comedian Elis James. 'The Elis James and John Robins Show' podcast has gained them a devoted following, and is a fixture in the top twenty comedy podcast charts. In 2017 they won The Chortle Award for Best Radio.
John began performing stand-up in 2005 and was an alumni of the legendary 'Bristol Comedy Flat' alongside Russell Howard, Jon Richardson and Mark Olver.
In 2016 Elis and John announced their first major live appearances together. 'The Elis James and John Robins Experience' saw them bring their unique chemistry to venues up and down the country. Demand was unprecedented and tickets for London's Shepherd's Bush Empire sold out in a matter of hours. He is the joint winner of the Edinburgh Comedy Award 2017.
John has appeared on numerous television shows including Mock The Week (BBC2), Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled Series 1 & 3 (Dave), Stand-Up Central (Comedy Central), Russell Howard's Good News (BBC3), Live at The Comedy Store (Comedy Central and Drunk History (Comedy Central).
