Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
TV's comedy guerilla with his own shrewd take on governmental and corporate exploitation. Mark Thomas is well versed in the art of creative mayhem and over the years his troublemaking has changed laws, cost companies millions and annoyed those who most deserved to be.
'A brilliantly crafted hour... beautiful and heartfelt' (Metro)
'A brand of comedy that carries a far weightier purpose than to simply generate laughs... Cuckooed leaves a lasting impression' (Sunday Herald)
'A clever, funny and angry show... an excoriating, heartfelt monologue... Thomas the polemicist deploys the comedian's eye for a situation's dark absurdities' (The Guardian)
'Thomas's show ruefully tots up the cost of personal betrayal' (Sunday Times)
'Bracing, brilliant and necessary... Mark Thomas is the most intelligent of the modern leftist stand-ups... an unmissable hour' (Theatre Cat).
Mark Thomas tour dates
The swarthy bard from Charlie Brooker's Newswipe (BBC4) and the pretty question master from We Need Answers (BBC4).
'This is one art house form-buster who can really give you a good time' (Times)
'In any other sphere apart from comedy, we'd probably class this way of looking at the world as certifiable. Here it feels like genius' (The Daily Telegraph)
'As daring and innovative as it is ridiculously funny... He's a genius, plain and simple' (Time Out).
Tim Key tour dates
'Cardinal Burns' are Seb Cardinal and Dustin Demri-Burns who became really well established as a comedy duo at the 2009 Edinburgh Festival. They went on to perform at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2010 and have enjoyed sell-out shows at London's Soho Theatre.
They performed a limited run at the Pleasance, Edinburgh, in 2012 and aired the first series of their sketch show on E4 in Spring of the same year to great critical acclaim and a British Comedy Award.
'Funny premises are augmented by great little sub-gags and physical turns before being topped off with a strong punchline. Tremendous stuff' (The Scotsman).
Cardinal Burns tour dates
A tall, gangly Northerner who delivers his own brand of no-nonsense humour. He has made appearances on Just A Minute, Have I Got News For You, Mock The Week and Nevermind The Buzzcocks.
'A master storyteller, holding the audience before dropping an exploding but simple punchline...' (Metro)
'Filled with prime laugh-out-loud stupid moments' (The List, Glasgow & Edinburgh)
'... real craft and creativity... results that satisfy both the comedy purists and those who simply want big laughs on a big night out' (The Guardian)
'The best, as well as the most natural stand-up I've seen' (The Independent)
'Alun Cochrane's ability to make the little things in life a comedy goldmine is
'Brilliant no-frills stand-up comedy' (The List).
Alun Cochrane tour dates
