Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Back in 2007, Darius Davies began his comedy career gracing the stages of the open mic nights in New York. Pretty swiftly, his unique brand of high octane comedy got him noticed and he won an MTV New Talent contest; opening the door for Darius to strut his stuff on MTV America.
A distinct voice in a sea of ubiquity – Darius is fearless in his belief in what is funny and forging his own path. This is high energy, captivating stand up comedy fuelled with passion, soul and wit. He also has the best routine about electrical plugs you will ever hear.
'An on the street observationist with an eye for the absurd with sharp lines and rough edges. High-energy and crowd pleasing' (Comedy Punter)
'Brilliant, hilarious, outstanding...' (Broadway Baby).
Darius Davies tour dates
Unflappable and unmissable comic who is sometimes rude, frequently silly but never dull.
'An original Red Card Comedy host and still one of the most sought after comperes on the UK comedy scene, John's gentle ribbing will get the audiences laughing. His back-catalogue of jokes are guaranteed hits with a steady stream of gags and punchlines - some groaners but all winners' (red Card Comedy Club).

An Italian storyteller and stand-up comedienne, Giada Garofalo started doing comedy, for a bit of a laugh, in August 2008 and never stopped!
Giada is also a photographer and since September 2014 she has started to mess around with design and filming to combine comedy and photography!
'With her endearing accent and sing-song tones, Garofalo sounds like she could be the voice of some sweetly innocent CBeebies cartoon character. But that only gives her the element of surprise when it turns out that she wants to talk politics' (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
'Friendly, feisty, funny... the most engaging of comics' (The Scotsman)
'A natural soryteller' (The Argus).
Giada Garofalo tour dates
Jim is an excellent compere. A vast majority of the venues, that have seen his set, have requested him to return to MC.
His fluid movement between MC and set has earned him the respect of his peers. This is due to his years of experience successfully running and compering several comedy clubs, his 1st being in his hometown of Eastbourne. This has been one of Jim’s major ventures since finishing runner up in the regional finals of the Daily Telegraph Award in 2001.
