Our Brilliant Line Up :

Fin Taylor

Fin has made a name for himself as one of the most talked about comedians working in the UK. His last three Edinburgh shows “Whitey McWhiteface” , “Lefty Tighty Righty Loosey” and "When Harassy Met Sally" were 5 star sell-out runs, and cemented his reputation as a fiercely funny and uncompromising social commentator. He went on to appear on Comedy Central’s ‘Roast Battle’ and ‘Live From the Comedy Store’ as well as making his own series for the Channel, “Fin Taylor plays Bullshit Bingo”.

As seen on 'BBC's Live At the Apollo' , 'Have I got News for You' (BBC), 8 out of 10 Cats (E4) & more

"Gleefully provocative and packed with big hard laughs" The Guardian

"A gutsy, ingenious and fearless truth-teller with the jokes to back up his attitude" ★★★★ The Times

Patrick Monahan

Much loved, energetic, charming Irish/Iranian Geordie and multi award winning comedy circuit living legend.

As seen on BBC One’s The One Show, Loose Women (ITV), Asian Network (BBC)

"Twinkle-toed, mischievous, sharp break dancing moves. Monahan raised the roof" - The Sun

"Instantly loveable, wonderfully unique" - Metro

‘There isn't a comic quite like him and his hugs alone are worth the price of admission’ ***** TheNewCurrent.co.uk

James Dowdeswell

Local lad and beer connoisseur, James performed at the Rivoli ballroom last November to great acclaim, and will keep you entertained with comic tales. Appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC), Celebrity Deal Or No Deal with Jimmy Carr (C4), Ricky Gervais’ Extras, The World Stands Up ( Paramount Comedy) “James Dowdeswell is a real master of the comedian’s craft.” Chortle.co.uk

Warmup for Don's recording of a Radio 4 stand-up special "Neurotopical" about having learning difficulties- dyspraxia, mild Asperger’s and ADHD,  'By the quality of his jokes alone, including a choice one about a corporate gig for the DWP, Biswas is the show’s star turn'. The Guardian.

Barbara Fernandez

A regular on the UK comedy circuit and beyond, life is never dull with Barbara around! Barbara Fernandez is a bubbly French American rocker who bounces between personalities with powerful vocals and bra-busting style. Barbara bursts into snippets of pop songs while joking about Scientologists, ex husbands, and mental health. “Barbara is the very definition of a triple threat: great comic, great MC, and man, can she belt out a tune!” – Kyle Wallace, G&B Comedy
