Star of Sky1's Brainiac and an established stand-up comedian, having toured with Rhod Gilbert on his Award Winning Mince Pie tour and performed at the Comedy Store, Jongleurs, The Bearcat and XS Malarkey to name a few.
Joe is also the creator of Morgan Berry, Pet Bereavement Counsellor.
'... has the unique ability to take a cold room and reduce it to fits of laughter' (GQ Magazine)
'Bags of madcap energy and an instant daft allure... It is his use of very specific and nonsensical language that is so captivatingly funny' (Chortle)
'Ridiculous in its simplicity but with a lot of obviously thought-through preparation, this is an amazing example of how to do it right' (Graeme Connelly on Morgan Berry).
Joe Rowntree tour dates
Award-winning comedian and star of Channel 4's Friday Night Dinner, he has also appeared on 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Dave's One Night Stand.
'A clever comic who's never afraid to look cocksure in the name of humour' (The Guardian)
'... talented upcoming star' (Time Out).
Tom Rosenthal tour dates
Coventry-born Stella Graham is a naturally funny stand-up comedian and writer, with great gags and killer banter. Ballsy, intelligent and inappropriate, no subject is off limits. Charming, and not entirely ladylike, all punchlines connect with a resounding thud.
Stella first hit the stage in New Zealand before returning home to the UK.
Stella has worked on and written for TV and radio.
'If you're a TV executive, drop what you're doing and go see her now' (The Skinny)
'Fun and original... everything a good comedian should be: self-assured, likeable and, crucially, funny' (Broadway Baby).

Goofy and peculiar, Stephanie Laing's comedy is partway between the needy oddness of Maria Bamford and the upbeat affability of Josie Long. Her material is a mix of silliness, filth and unusual observations, underpinned by a disarming honesty which makes her seem charmingly vulnerable.
'A great stand-up. Always works magic' (Phil Kay)
'Disgusting and delightful in equal measure' (Three Weeks)
'Stephanie Laing offered up a gloriously silly set, coming across as wonderfully unpretentious and getting the audience on her side from the first line. Her off-the-wall observations about her own anxieties were delivered with awkward tenacity and came off as entirely believable mementoes of her everyday life' (Broadway Baby)
'... the tremendously smart and silly Stephanie Laing...' (Funhouse Comedy).
