Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Once Rob, now Robert, Newman found fame as a member of the show that spawned a thousand catchphrases; The Mary Whitehouse Experience, and went stratospheric in the early '90s as one half of Newman and Baddiel, becoming the first comedy act to sell-out Wembley Arena. He also wrote for the BBC radio classic 'Week Ending' along with a host of contributors who included Ged Parsons, Oleg Stepaniuk, Nick and Roger Saunders, Michael Dines and Bob and Barbara Boulton. Having parted company with Baddiel, Newman now combines writing novels, campaigning against globalisation and performing some of the most informed and incisive political comedy.
'He is the funniest comedian I have ever seen. A passionate, chaotically brilliant comedian' (The Sunday Times)
'I am completely in awe of Robert Newman. Of his talent, his passion, his intelligence, and the way he turns them to comedy with real firepower. If this world could be saved by a Superhero whose Superpower was Comedy, that hero would be Robert Newman' (The Scotsman)
'You see that chink of gleaming light in the dark, overcast sky? That's you that is' (The Daily Telegraph).

Nathan is a young black British comic, gigging on both the mainstream and black comedy circuit. His set is highly obsevational, influenced by his culture and upbringing, and also coming from a young person's outlook on life, from the well-known Nigerian traffic warden and the always-disciplining West-Indian mother, to MTV's Pimp my Ride.
'Excellent story-telling skills keep the crowd easily entertained' (Three Weeks).
‘Caton is probably the most exciting young black comic on the scene’ (Fest Magazine).
'Caton's a slick performer with an unbeatable stage attitude and the confident air of someone much more experienced' (Chortle).
'Compelling, well-observed stand-up... He specialises in laidback, on-the-nose material, chopping down fools of all colours, both in day-to-day life and in the media' (The Guardian).
Nathan Caton was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2015.
Nathan Caton tour dates
Alfie Brown's first stage credit was when he was 15 in Harry Hill's stage show Wild Horses. The son of Dead Ringers star Jan Ravens, he started performing stand-up at the age of 18 in August 2006. He has appeared on BBC2's The Grumpy Guide To Teenagers. His firebrand style of comedy has been forged from years of pushing boundaries and experimentation. A natural stage presence combined with explosive material makes for a thrilling performance every time he hits the stage.
His material touches on introspective thoughts and considerations of the human condition as well as broader observations on social-political issues. All done in an accessible and hilarious way.
'Quite simply the future of British stand-up' (Brian Donaldson, The List)
'Brown's is one of the boldest new voices I've encountered... mapping a route to a
different class of humour' (Brian Logan, The Guardian)
'Calls himself an observational comic' (Kate Copstick, The Scotsman)
'A true delight, his delivery was natural and his jokes were sharp' (Such Small Portions)
'Incredibly interesting new comedy voice' (Time Out),
Alfie Brown tour dates
Rapid rising comedian and panel show regular who has hosted BBC Radio 4 Extra's topical comedy show Newsjack and hosts The Mash Report (BBC Two) with comics Ellie Taylor, Steve N Allen, Jason Forbes, Tom Neenan and Rachel Parris.
'The affable comic expertly blends comedy and commentary in a routine that snipes unpityingly at Britain’s political class' (The Guardian).
'Impressive and accomplished... full of confidently delivered, wryly witty tales that delight in the quirks and possibilities of language' (The Scotsman)
'A comedian on the up... An ingenious, witty look at identity that suggests Kumar will soon be getting known for all the right reasons' (The Times)
Nish Kumar was placed in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2016.
