Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Psycho-intense singer-songwriter Loretta Maine makes Courtney Love look well-balanced. This pill-popping, booze-abusing, bunny-boiling car-crash of a rock star has been the most memorable creation of talented character comic Pippa Evans to date, and is now promoted to both her own show and her own band, Dog Vagina.
'Funniest show yet, with miserable songs with superbly witty lyrics' (Time Out)
'Murderously funny' (Evening Standard)
'Fabulously talented... Her brilliantly realized comedy shows maturity well beyond her years... Her psychotic yet sexy American singer is a thing of hysterical beauty (Time Out)
'Beautifully bitter lyrics... Truly impressive one-liners... inspired, quotable pearls of wisdom... Fine comic writing underpins her flawless, perfectly timed performance
She's a relative newcomer, but has certainly got the talent for a sustained and stellar career in comedy (Chortle)
'Like Dolly Parton seen through the lens of Mike Leigh... she performs brilliantly
observed songs about love, loss and violent revenge (The Guardian).

Benny Boot has been performing on the UK stand-up comedy circuit for 6 years. He is considered by many comedians as a wonderful stand-up artist to watch. Boot delivers his jokes in a unique style on a variety of strange topics. His engaging persona and material keeps the laughter rolling through the entire show and is guaranteed to bring any audience undone.
'He's got a keen instinct for the joke, an imaginative turn of phrase and an ability to find an offbeat angle to whatever he chooses to talk about' (Chortle)
'... an arsenal of consistently brilliant gags' (The Guardian).
Benny Boot tour dates
A relative newcomer who has the material and confidence of a full time comic. He has a lovely style in his delivery - pacy, upbeat and infectious - that makes the audience warm to him. Set pieces such as his Bollywood and Nollywood reconstruction capitalise on that energy well.
Prince Abdi tour dates
A rising star on the comedy circuit. 2010 saw Simon chosen by Bushmills Brothers as their beacon of wit and banter in everyday settings for their online campaign ‘Best of Friends’.
Simon also lent his wild enthusiasm and vocal talents to BAFTA-winning kids’
show Yo Gabba Gabba for NickJr and the BAFTA-nominated Jim Jam And Sunny
for CITV, plus appeared in Neon Candy for Hat Trick Productions.
'Amiable, eccentric, self-deprecating... delightfully nutty' (LA Weekly)
'Compelling to watch... Unashamedly feelgood!' (Chortle).
