Effortlessly confident, James's appreciation for the whimsy and detail of everyday life are a breath of fresh air. His laid back style, playful wit and appetite for the unconventional make for an evening of mirth and hilarity, and a night in his company is a treat to behold.
Since winning Laughing Boy New Act of the Year, James has gone from strength to strength appearing on Dave's One Night Stand, Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three), Mock The Week (BBC Two) and releasing his own three part Netflix special in 2018.
'Curious, original, immensely enjoyable stuff' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Deliciously daft and no slouch in the surprises department... One of comedy’s most original voices' (Evening Standard)
'Reminiscent of Stewart Lee or Richard Herring but suffused with enough of his own personality to sound crisp and fresh' (The Independent)
'Stand-up of the highest most playful order' (The Guardian).
James Acaster was placed in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2016.
James Acaster tour dates
Robert tells engaging stories, strong jokes and occasionally performs a bit of musical comedy. Material derives from his unusual life and abstract perspective as he twists his thoughts in a peculiar fashion culminating in always clever, often wordy and sometimes cruel humour.
'Robert White, probably – no definitely – the only asperger, dyslexic, cross lateral,
gay, quarter-Welsh, webbed toed comedian on the circuit' (The Guardian).
Robert White tour dates
Mark Cram is '... everything that a TV comic would love to be; clever, fearless, constantly improving and in less than a year of gigging, he has left a massive stamp on the circuit, which gets bigger with every gig' (Just For Laughs)
'Local legend' (Badger and Boodle Entertainment)
'Fantastic!' (Bad Clowns Comedy).
Mark Cram tour dates
After growing up in '80s South-East London and surviving a post-Bush, post-racial, post-Thatcher, post-Twilight Society, Dane realised that it was a moral obligation to chronicle and in some places parody the human experience and contemporary western culture.
Having written and starred in his own sitcom for the BBC (Sunny D) and performed a triumphant run at the Edinburgh Festival, Dane Baptiste is fast becoming regarded as definitely one to watch as his career takes off.
As seen on Live At The Apollo, 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Mock the Week (BBC Two), Chris Ramsey's Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), Tonight at the London Palladium (ITV1), Live from the BBC (BBC Two), Seann Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular (BBC3) and Live at The Comedy Store (Comedy Central).
'Brilliant' (Comedy Blogedy)
'Intelligent and genuinely hilarious' (Adam Bloom)
'Observational comedy at its finest' (The Independent)
'Baptiste is a comical genius' (http://www.EdFestMag.com)
'A thunderingly charismatic comic' (The Guardian).
Dane J Baptiste tour dates
London Evening Standard's Critics' Choice Rob Thomas is a creative physical storytelling comic currently racing up the comedy ladder. The Guardian’s Bruce Dessau called him “strongest performer of the night” with a “superior physical presence” and The Yorkshire Times deemed him “a triumph!” with “tremendous relentless physicality”.
Rob is in the final of the UK Pun Championships 2018, having got the silver medal in 2015, was 2nd in the Leicester Square Old Comedian of the Year 2017 and was a finalist in the Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year 2014 award and the Montreux Comedy Festival New Act (UK Region) for 2014 and 2015. In short, he's funny.
