Ardal O'HanlonDisplays a proficiency of delivery which puts him well ahead of the pack. He is a complete joy to watch, planting the sort of silly images that bump around in your head forever.”  THE GUARDIAN

“..Skilfully handled running jokes, his manipulation of a capacity crowd is just as impressive..sharp and genial observation . O’Hanlon is certainly a comedian to be reckoned with”  DAILY TELEGRAPH

“If you love comedy and smart talking – and only go to see one comedy show, make it O’Hanlon” DAILY EXPRESS

Angela Barneswith ANGELA BARNES

"Barnes mixes warm autobiographical material with plenty of strong jokes" The Guardian

Since 2011, Angela Barnes and her witty world view have been catapulted onto numerous radio and television shows including appearances on Russell Howard’s Good News, Russell Kane’s Whistle Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2), BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show and a full series of Channel 4's Stand Up For The Week in 2013. 

"Like all the best comics, she manages to articulate a singular perspective while making it seem like a universal truth. And then she put jokes in it. Harder than it looks" The Guardian

Nathan Catonplus NATHAN CATON

"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 excels in combining both personal, confessional material with up-to-date social and political anecdotes. This has won him numerous credits and plaudits over the years and has made him one of the hottest rising young stars on the circuit.

Nathan started comedy while studying architecture at University and within his first full year of gigging he had built up a solid reputation having performed at the Edinburgh Festival, winning the award for Chortle Student Comic of the Year.

Caton’s first Edinburgh show in 2009 entitled Can’t Tell Me Nothin’ got him rave reviews from critics including The Guardian, EdFest and Three Weeks and earned him guest writing spots with BBC Radio. His debut Edinburgh show was then followed up with ‘Breakfast At Stephanie’s’ and ‘Get Rich Or Die Cryin’, the latter which became Caton’s debut solo tour show.

"Caton is probably the most exciting young black comic on the scene." Fest

"More than material, presentation is Caton’s strongest suit and he’s confident, charismatic and upbeat." Chortle
