Sean honed his unique, storytelling style over 18 years. In 2000, his hard work and determination led to his receiving two prestigious Canadian Comedy Award nominations for 'Best Male Stand Up' and for his half hour 'Comic's Comedy Special' on CBC. Fuelled by the desire to play to a more international audience, Sean left Canada for the UK and, within the five years that he has resided in Britain, he has written and performed three highly successful Edinburgh Festival shows, receiving rare, five star reviews and one of only a few Best of Fest accolades.

Winner of the Comedy Smackdown at the Galway Comedy festival 2010, and of the Bulmers Nuttin’ But Funny Competition 2009, Chris Kent is one of Ireland’s rapidly rising young comedians. As well as being regular MC at Cork’s City Limits comedy club, Chris has gigged all over Ireland with PJ Gallagher, Ardal O’Hanlon and Colin Murphy, to name but a few. His sharp style prey's on his own everyday life and his ability to laugh at himself gives for some great viewing. Chris is one to watch! ‘Breathes new life into anecdotal comedy’ The List. 'Compelling storyteller, truly surprising, beautifully delivered’The Scotsman.

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.

Stephen Carlin began his stand-up career in 2002 and soon became a permanent fixture on the comedy circuit, supporting Stewart Lee and Stephen Merchant on tour, also appearing in Stewart Lee's 10 Best Stand-ups In the World Ever. As seen on ‘The Alternative Comedy Experience’, ‘Comedy at the Fringe’, ‘Edinburgh and Beyond’ and ‘Comedy Cuts’ ITV as well as featuring on Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’ and ‘Friday Night Live’, 'Sharp, slightly offbeat, mainly very funny' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard) 'The whimsy and relaxed on-stage demeanour were a winner instantly... (Carlin) excelled in pedantry, married to exceptional use of language' (Leamington Observer) '... if this man isn't a household name in five years' time, the world is even more lacking in justice than we could have feared' (The Scotsman) '... a delightfully off beat act who expertly applies twisted, convoluted logic to common-or-garden observations to produce genuinely original material... a definite tip for the top' (Chortle).
