    Andrew is one of the most varied and genuinely alternative acts on the circuit. He’s a metalhead, an amateur occultist and a musician. He’s been a returning guest on ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ and appeared in ‘Saxondale’ with Steve Coogan. You’ll also have heard him all over your wireless, including offering objects for display at John Lloyd’s ‘Museum of Curiosity’ on Radio 4, as well as on BBC Radio 1, Radio 4 Extra, and 5live. But live is where the hidden mind-control signals planted in his work are most effective.

    He’s a bit of a regular on the comedy stages at Download, Sonisphere, Bloodstock, Leeds and Reading festivals and has opened for Amanda Palmer off of the Dresden Dolls, done audience warm-up for Never Mind the Buzzcocks, hosted the Metal Hammer Golden Gods, played at Torture Garden and the Bizarre Magazine Ball and load of other events where people mainly wear shiny things.

    “An increasingly distinctive, imaginative act… brilliant, genuinely unexpected lines are added to the mix. At this rate, it won’t be long until he’s huge.” Chortle

    “He’s got a natural optimism and love of silliness that leaves you feeling remarkably positive… a winning blend of polemic and off-beat whimsy.” The Guardian


    Join the comedy circuit’s favourite ghost-flavoured comedy storyteller for some extra-specially terrifying tales of horror! Huzzah! And this time it’s spooky beyond all imagining! Join Will Seaward for more fear than you can shake a werewolf at! Ghosts! Torches! Witches! Cobwebs! Vampires! Haunted objects! Doom!

    “Part Brian Blessed, part Oscar Wilde, part crazed Victorian music hall MC…a naturally funny fellow.” The Telegraph

    “Hurrah for Will…bombastic, bawdy…an ever-burning furnace of plummy wit…Will Seaward makes pure comedy gold.” Edinburgh Festivals Magazine


    An absurdly multi-talented actress, musician and comedian, Katie overwhelms audience with her charm, talent and superb singing voice. She has worked on the West End, Number 1 UK Tours, performed at regional venues, host her own radio sketch show “Literally Comedy” – the only show to be set in her very imaginary bookshop…?!, has written for hit show NewsRevue and is the guitarist in award-winning all-girl Rock’n’Roll band The Daisy Chains (Winners of The London Vintage Awards, Finalists of The National Vintage Awards).


    Archaeologist by day, comedian (and occasional crime-fighter) by night, Paul is a charming, eloquent and big-hearted storyteller, whose tales of awkwardness at school, on worksites and when eyeball-to-eyeball with a Ugandan rebel leader have left audiences in delighted bit and pieces the nation over. He’s also a core member of the Knightmare Live and Comedian’s Cinema Club casts.

    “Like a very tall, funny, excited child.” The Scotsman

    Simon Watt is a biologist, writer, science communicator, comedian and TV presenter.

    He runs the “Ugly Animal Preservation Society” which is a comedy night with a conservation twist. It went on to find global fame/notoriety when it teamed up with the National Science and Engineering Competition to host an online campaign resulting in the election of the blobfish as the ugliest animal on the planet.

    His new book “The Ugly Animals: We Can’t All be Pandas” is out now. He has also written dozens of articles for national newspapers and websites including The Times, The Sunday Times, The Sun, The Daily Telegraph, The Independent, the Daily Mirror and the New York Daily News.

    He is a regular contributor to TV, radio and web and is perhaps best known as a presenter on the BAFTA winning documentary series Inside Nature’s Giants and the Channel 4 special The Elephant: Life After Death. He’ll be sharing with us the most gory and gruesome tales of dissection and scientific investigation, especially for Hallowe’en.

    To be at one of Phil’s shows and expect stand-up would be a big mistake Éanything can happen and invariably does! Never is this more true than when performing on his home turf. Glasgow beware! Or, at the very least, bring hard hats.

    Phil’s comedy is a unique blend of energy, improvisation and leaps of imagination that take his audience on a joyride they’ll never forget. Even Phil has no idea what might happen when he unleashes his crazy brand of improvised comedy mayhem. He possesses the rare gift of creating a space where audiences feel like they are kids again, all taking part in a practical joke.

    Phil launched his stand-up comedy career with a bang in 1989, quickly garnering a host of awards, nominations and glowing reviews. Since then, the plaudits have never stopped as he conquered first the live stage and then television, with appearances on such shows as Phil Kay Feels, (Ch 4), Next Stop Phil Kay (Ch 4), Edinburgh Nights (BBC1), Montreal Festival of Fun (Ch 5) and plenty more besides.

    Phil’s first love, however, remains live stage work and only by watching his live performances will audiences really see him at his very best. Phil Kay is stand-up comedy’s answer to spontaneous human combustion a rare, explosive and always surprising phenomenon that simply cannot be contained in a box or represented on a cathode tube.

    Phil tours Britain constantly and is a firm favourite at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where he performs yearly to sell-out crowds and critical acclaim. Over the years he has completed several highly successful tours of Australia, performing at the Adelaide and Melbourne Festivals. Since then, he has travelled the length and breadth of the globe administering his special blend of comedy genius.

    Phil has worked as a warm-up man on television shows including: Jonathan Ross’s Saturday Show, Channel 4’s Viva Cabaret, The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer, Sean’s Show and Harry Hill’s Pilot Show.

    “Willing to treat each gig as a one-off event.” The Guardian

    “It’s easy to get lost in Kay-world, it’s the close proximity to such high energy levels, emotionally charged and visceral storytelling.” Herald


    After winning the Piccadilly Comedy Club’s New Comedian of the Year 2014 competition, Alistair is already on his way to the top. His high energy and charismatic stage presence have seen him tick off a number of high profile competitions, reaching the finals for The Leicester Square Theatre New Act, The Amused Moose Laugh Off, and the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year 2013.

    A genuine joke machine, Alistair is one of those rare commodities in the comedy world with his consistent ability to produce new material of the highest standard. However long you give him, you are sure to get a set packed with gags from start to finish.

    “Possesses a rough diamond charm.” Chortle

He has performed sell-out solo shows at the ‘96, ’97, ’98, ’99, ’01, ’04 & ’07 Edinburgh Festivals as well as performing a sell-out tour of Britain.

He has also written three series of ‘The Problem with Adam Bloom’ for BBC Radio 4.

    “Bloom is perhaps the perfect comedian.” The List

    “In the premier league of comedy.” Independent

    “His mission is to convince you that he’s the greatest comic ever and he makes a surprisingly good case.” The Scotsman

    “He’s been one of my favourite stand-ups for about ten years. Bloom not only has meticulous clever lines, but also an intense and fragile honesty.” Ricky Gervais

    “He makes me laugh out-loud, I can’t wait to see him life.” Sir Ian McKellen


    Originally from Devon, Ex-Butlins-Redcoat Suzy is a dynamo of a comic, with a uniquely warm and chatty stage presence.

    Si Deaves is a stand up comic hailing from the depths of Southend-on-Sea. Having realised just how odd his life and thought patterns so regularly are, Si decided to turn to comedy in early 2014 and use it to question everything from people’s misunderstanding of primary school level grammar, to why Goldilocks was so cruel, all the while bemused and amused by his own fears and neuroses. His dry and acerbic wit, love for improvising and playing around on stage, and general easy going manner make him instantly likeable.

    London born Matt Kirshen’s precision wit has earned him an impressive reputation on the international comedy circuit. Most recently his appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Paul Provenza’s Green Room, and as a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing has earned him a whole new host of fans in the United States and a surprising number of other countries worldwide.

    He has also recorded a half-hour special for the World Stands Up, Comedy Central, and has acclaimed festival appearances at Montreal, Edinburgh, Kilkenny, Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds, Bermuda, and Amsterdam.

    His debut CD, “I Guess We’ll Never Know” was named in Punchline Magazine’s top 10 albums of 2009 and his hit appearance at the 2008 Just For Laughs festival in Montreal resulted in no fewer than 4 of his gags appearing in the Montreal Gazette’s round up of their best jokes of the fest.

    Matt has appeared in and written for numerous television shows and Radio series, including the critically acclaimed series Bigipedia which ran for 2 seasons on the BBC.

    His youthful looks disguise a veteran comic with almost a decade of experience, and a wealth of smart, funny and relatable material, making him a firm favorite with college audiences. While it’s his prime-time NBC appearances that most American comedy fans will recognize him from, they are often surprised at the breadth and scope of his material, described by one reviewer as “intelligent, but with the emphasis firmly on the funny.”

    “A rollercoaster of comedy genius.” The Scotsman

    “Matt Kirshen is a definite one to watch, his innocent looks belying a sharp, surreal and often gloriously sick mind.” Metro

    “A pocket sized dynamo.” The Evening Standard


    Paul Ricketts is an award-winning comic who since 2005 has been entertaining audiences across the UK and beyond. Since starting as an MC in his own London Comedy Club, Paul has developed into a much sought after performer on the comedy circuit. His intelligent humour focuses not only on sharp observations from life, but also racial, cultural and satirical subjects, intermingled with strange tales of ordinary madness. Sometimes silly, serious or surreal, sometimes autobiographical, political or near the knuckle – but always funny!

    “Material is smart as well as funny.” Scotsman

    “Weird and wonderful… should be given his own TV show.” The Stage


    A new and unusual maverick of alternative comedy, Jordan has been a sleeper hit of the past two Edinburgh Festivals. Following a successful debut hour show, Brookes returns with a new bundle of silly faces, uncomfortable poses and unnecessary confessions that push the envelope of modern comedy.

    “Superbly crafted, he cleverly switches between characters, stand-up and something a little more avant-garde. Easily one of the most creative but funny shows I’ve seen this year.” ★★★★★ The Mirror

    “Jordan takes all of the stand-up rules in the book and proceeds to snap them in two. Perfectly and intricately performed.” ★★★★ The List

    “‘Deserves recognition for doing something a little different with the art form… with performance skills to spare and an innovative approach running through this assured debut like lettering in seaside rock’-★★★★ Chortle

    Tim FitzHigham is a Perrier nominated, multi-award winning comedian, explorer, presenter, world-record holder and author. Among numerous TV credits as a comic, he has presented several documentaries for BBC 1, and Super Human Challenge for CBBC. Tim has written and performed in two series of The Gambler, for BBC Radio 4 based on his hugely-successful 2011 Edinburgh Fringe show, whilst keeping up his many stage and film appearances.

    He is completely and utterly unique as a storyteller, adventurer and absolutely mad-as-a-hatstand, loonbag pioneer into hitherto unknown territories of human endeavour! His achievements include breaking a 383 year old record by sailing a paper boat 160 miles down the River Thames, crossing the Channel in a bathtub and Morris dancing from London to Norwich.

    “You can’t help but be swept up in the delights of his adventure.” ***** Chortle

    “Tim FitzHigham is part comedian, part old-school gentleman adventurer.” The Guardian

    “For pure unutterable silliness, this is hard to beat…exuberant.” Evening Standard

    “Tim is a rare talent indeed, brave, determined and the very embodiment of the great English Eccentric.” Marcus Brigstocke



    A relative newbie to the London comedy circuit, Kotani uses her low-key outsider perspective and skewed logic to dissect London living, from strange posters on the Overground to the untranslatable Britishism of adding ‘-ish’ to words (we put the ‘ish’ into ‘British’, you could say). Her wonderfully offbeat stories have earned her places in the final of a bunch of new-act comps, culminating in victory in the BBC New Act of Year final last year, with her rug-pulling punchlines and bizarre observations impressing the voting public at home.

    “Daft and fun.” Chortle


    Since starting comedy in March 2014, Eshaan Akbar has established himself as an act with exciting potential.

    A winner of the Piccadilly Comedy Club New Comedian of the Year 2016, Eshaan has been in the finals of other prestigious competitions, including So You Think You’re Funny 2014 and Laughing Horse 2014. He performs across the UK and has performed in Germany and Bangladesh. In 2016, he supported Dane Baptiste on his UK tour and did warm up work for “Micky Flanagan and Friends”.

    His professional career has taken him from private banking through to corporate communications via a career in local government public policy. He has previously written for The Guardian, The Times online, The Observer New Review and The Huffington Post UK. He is a member of the UK Speechwriters Guild and Fellow of the RSA.

    Born and raised in East London, he is a Manchester United fan (obviously) and has torn cricketing allegiances – he fails the Tebbit test every time. He has previously dabbled in Bollywood and salsa dance choreography.

    “So slick, I could have been watching a Live At The Apollo set.” Beyond the Joke

    “A story that’s likely to go far”. Full of likeability and charm.” Chortle


    Tom Little is a stand-up comedian and nothing else. He won the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2015, was a finalist in the BBC Radio New Comedy Award 2014 and performed as part of the Pleasance Comedy Reserve showcase at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe. These are prestigious accolades so, you know, be impressed. His set contains material about failure, geese and Sonic the Hedgehog. In that order. And other stuff as well.

    “A brilliant, loudly awkward set…. His material is somehow simultaneously incredibly sharply written and bluntly delivered; his routines are very funny, completely inventive, sitting perilously on the fence between allowing an audience to think they know what’s coming, and pulling something unexpectedly bizarre out of the bag.” Gigglebeats

    “Little’s showstopping set-piece … made an immediate impact and it was no surprise that the judges felt that that he was the front runner.” Beyond The Joke

    “Little displayed the unhinged offbeat qualities that won over the judges last year – and rightly so.” Chortle


    Jenny Bede is a actor & comedy writer/performer from Pinner, the town from which Elton John also hails . Much like Sir Elton, she wears a wig, is married to a man named David Furnish & had a hit with the song ‘Rocketman’ in 1972.

    Born in the 80’s, Jenny always took an interest in performing and decided to apply to the prestigious Royal Academy of Music (where EJ also attended). She was accepted onto the Musical Theatre course under the direction of Mary Hammond, where she later graduated with Distinction. After a stint in the record-breaking ‘NewsRevue’ Jenny started writing comedy, initially creating a series of musical parody videos that have since gained over 2million views on YouTube.

    Since then she has worked in film, television and radio. Career highlights include, Dawson Bros’ Funtime (BBC3), writing and creating the Bafta-winning Made in Chelsea fan show ‘Mad on Chelsea’ (ch4), being cast by Edgar Wright as ‘Fitness Instructor (26)’ in The World’s End and duetting with noughties boy band legends Blue on the classic, ‘Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word’. Perhaps topping all of that was a Bodyform commercial directed by The Fully Monty’s Peter Cattaneo. No, she didn’t get to roller-skate with a dog and yes – she was cut from the final edit.

    In 2013 Jenny started writing and performing the live comedy, winning the Best Newcomer Award in the 2013 Musical Comedy Awards after just 3 gigs. This led to an hour on the free fringe with the brilliantly talented Jessie Cave, performances for BBCR1 and BBCR4 and playing at Glastonbury.

    In 2014 Jenny was commissioned to make her own pilot by BBC Comedy and was named The Observer & Guardian’s Rising Star of Comedy for 2015.

    Sy Thomas is an actor, presenter, and stand-up comedian. His versatility, likeability, and deft comedic flair, have seen him gain an extensive and hugely varied list of credits and experience.

    Sy burst into the world of presenting at kids TV channel Nickelodeon, where he fronted all of the channel’s live studio projects and continuity for nearly 2 years. He then went on to write and present two series of CITV’s much-loved gadgets and games show ‘The Cool Stuff Collective’.

    As well as gathering a whole host of further presenting roles, Sy also became something of an accidental adventurer when he and fellow stand-up Alexis Dubus drove 4000 miles through Africa in a car they bought for £100 – their epic journey being documented in the award-winning film ‘End of the Road’.

    As a stand-up comedian Sy regularly performs throughout the UK and is in demand as both an act and compere. In 2013 he supported Marcel Lucont on tour; hosted the comedy stage at ‘End of the Road Festival’; and took his first solo venture Sy+’ to Edinburgh festival, which Three Weeks awarded 5 stars and called “Brilliantly entertaining!” His first full-length show “Jumper” garnered brilliant reviews and “Recommended Show” from Fringe Review in 2015.
