Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.

He is a regular performer at the Comedy Store and has clocked up several TV appearances, including 'They Think It's All Over' and 'Have I Got News For You'. To add to his number of international accolades, he was the winner of the Jongleurs Stand Up Of The Year in 2001.

Tiffany Stevenson tour dates
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).
Alistair Barrie tour dates
Irish born, London residing, Aisling's name is pronounced Ash-ling Bee. She was named Irish Tatler's Entertainment Woman of the Year 2013 and winner of So You Think You're Funny 2013, the first woman to do so in 20 years, and only the second woman to do so in the competition's 25 year history. Expect hilarious hip-hop moves and wonderfully silly stories.
Aisling Bea tour dates
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), Mock The Week (BBC Two) and releasing his own three part Netflix special in 2018.
'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 was placed in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2016.
