This event takes place at Eventim Apollo, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Smart-suited comedian from North London who has appeared on Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You and 8 Out Of 10 Cats to name but a few.
The past few years have been exceptional for Michael, performing sold-out shows in arenas all over the world. His 2012 tour, Showtime, was the biggest selling comedy tour in the world that year, playing to over 640,000 people including a
record-breaking ten night residency at London’s O2 Arena, matching the pop-superstar Rihanna’s 2011 record.
Michael has also released three best-selling DVDs: 2008’s Live and Laughing, was the biggest selling UK debut stand-up DVD of its time, Hello Wembley, which in 2009 became the fastest-selling UK stand-up DVD of all time - a record it still holds, and 2012’s Showtime, which beat its competitors to the Christmas Number One spot.
'One of the most gifted performers to emerge in years' (The Evening Standard)
'The man is quite simply top-to-toe hilarious' (The Daily Telegraph).
Michael McIntyre tour dates
Winner of the City Life Comedian of the Year and a finalist in both the Mercury Comedy Awards and the Daily Telegraph Open Mic Awards. A strong stage presence and life experience make him a comedian who is not afraid to take chances, and this is reflected in his status as one of the best comics in the country.
'One of the most popular comedians in the country' (Mail on Sunday)
'This is a treat' (The Times)
'Hottest stand-up going’ Daily Telegraph
'A fabulously gifted comedian' (The Mirror)
'One of this country's biggest comedy stars' (Time Out).
John Bishop tour dates
Russell Howard is one of our funniest and most successful comedians. The quick-witted, cheeky and wryly observant comedian first became known when he was appearing as a regular on BBC2's Mock The Week. He has gone on to write and star in his own BBC show, Russell Howard's Good News.
Russell is also one of the UK's most successful live comedians with his trademark brand of upbeat and razor-sharp comedy selling out arenas on his 2011 Right Here, Right Now tour, and the follow-up Wonderbox tour in 2014.
'Energetic, uncynical and, most importantly, very funny' (The Times).
Russell Howard tour dates
Stand-up comedian and writer from North East England. At the 2008 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Millican won the if.comedy award for Best Newcomer. Since then, she has appeared on several television and radio shows including BBC1's Live At The Apollo and BBC2's Mock the Week.
'Sarah Millican is never less than belly-laugh hilarious' (The Daily Mirror)
'An iron fist in a marigold glove' (The Guardian)
'To watch Sarah Millican is to watch a box of comedy fireworks going off' (The Independent).
Sarah Millican tour dates
Although he's a man of few smiles, Jack Dee's deadpan, dry humour has made him one of Britain's favourite veteran comedians. Starting his career as a stand-up comic, he first came to the small screen in the 1990s as the face of the John Smith's Bitter advertising campaign and soon became known as 'The Midget with the Widget'. By 1995, he had appeared in countless TV shows and gained an impressive array of awards. In 2001, he was the highlight of Celebrity Big Brother digging secret escape tunnels while the others were in the bath. Much to his surprise, the nation showed their adoration voting him the winner of the series. With often sell-out gigs, a chance to see this talented misery onstage definitely shouldn't be missed.
Jack Dee tour dates
Over the last few years, Jack has firmly established himself as one of the country's most successful young talents. He cut his teeth at the Edinburgh Fringe, taking up four sell out shows over three consecutive years and earning an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination in the process with his debut show 'Jack Whitehall: Learning Difficulties'. He has gone on to host Live At The Apollo and perform at the Royal Variety Performance, as well as the internationally prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Canada. In addition, he has been nominated by Variety as one of the '10 Comics to Watch' and in December 2012 won the King of Comedy award at the annual British Comedy Awards.
In addition to his stand-up, Jack has also built a successful TV and writing career. As well as his role as JP in the award winning C4 series Fresh Meat, Jack has also written and stars in the acclaimed BBC3 sitcom Bad Education and is a panellist on Sky1's hit show, A League Of Their Own.
Jack Whitehall tour dates
One of Britain's freshest and most original comics, this British-born Iranian hams the accent and underlines the cliches before pulling the Persian rug from under the audience. With a career in comedy spanning across three decades, Omid Djalili's legendary performances on stage and screen have won him fans and plaudits the world over.
Renowned for his razor sharp wit, boundless energy and expertly crafted cultural observations, his original material continues to explore the diversity of modern Britain and he remains one of the most exciting entertainers on the circuit.
A firm favourite at the Edinburgh Festival, Omid's stand-up awards include the Time Out Award for Best Stand Up and the EMMA Award. He's also been a nominee for a Perrier Award and the South Bank Award. Omid was also awarded a Best Actor award at the Turin Film Festival for his lead performance in The Infidel.
'To carve yourself out a career as the thinking person's Iranian comedian in this political climate takes a fine brain and a masterful way with the audience. There is no question that Omid Djalili possesses both... Belly laughs with a subtle blend of mainstream gags and subversive twinkle' (The Sunday Times)
'Right now, the Iranian Djalili is probably one of the most subversive, let alone funniest, comedians around' (The Guardian)
'Iranalamadingdong is a must see for anyone that has a good sense of humour' (Birmingham Mail).
Omid Djalili tour dates
Pixie Lott - so named after her fairy-like appearance as a baby - was signed to Def Jam at just fifteen years of age and her first single, Mama Do (Uh Oh, Uh Oh) sold 50,000 copies soon after. This success was easily repeated with the single Boys And Girls, a tantalising precursor to the success of her debut album, Turn It Up - debuting at No 6 in the UK Albums Chart.
