Nothing less than a phenomenon, Vince Atta has the industry ignited! Using a multi-track looper and pedals, Vince creates live on-the-spot Hip-Hop/Reggae/Techno/anything, hilariously fusing it with natural stand-up, storytelling and characters, creating the most infectious songs you're ever likely to hear... it really is quite a show!
"An unstoppable force! Like an intravenous shot of adrenaline!" Chortle
"One of the circuit's most promising acts." Guardian
Phil Lucas exists in the hitherto uncolonised landscape between Harry Hill and Dave Gorman. A master of the lunatic powerpoint presentation, he’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before and will have you in fits of giggles with his absurd set.
“A huge hit with the audience.” Chortle
“Mr Lucas is wonderfully funny. Our new favourite thing.” The Huffington Post
An exceptionally smart young man with something to say, Michael Odewale’s stand up covers everything from politics to pigeons. He began performing in 2014 while at university and was a finalist in both the Chortle Student Comedy Award and the BBC New Comedy Award in 2016.
A fresh new voice known for delivering sharp, slick and beautifully executed content, Odewale is set to take the comedy world by storm and has already performed at UK’s most famous venues including The Comedy Store, Up the Creek and The Comedy Café.
This bright young star is quickly proving himself to be one of the most exciting up and coming talents in British stand up.
“An engagingly sardonic wit.” Chortle
Award winning and Emmy nominated comedian, Tats Nkonzo is regarded by The Star newspaper as, “One of the best things to happen to South African comedy.”
Host of hit reality TV show, SA’s Got Talent and Idols top 12 finalist, Tats fuses music and comedy to great effect. With his arsenal of humour, intellect and a guitar, Tats Nkonzo jokes, challenges and entertains like very few can.
With 2 Comedy Central Africa appearances and an Emmy nomination for his role (writer and performer) in satirical news show, Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola, CNN conducted a profile on Tats Nkonzo regarding his material in the context of nation building.
Breakthrough Comic of the Year, 2012. Comic of the Year nominee, 2015. His unique interpretation of comedy and music has won him critical acclaim from both industry heavy weights and a fast growing fan base. Internationally, Tats won the Montreux International Comedy Contest, 2014 and brought his critically acclaimed show The African with Wifi to the infamous Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2015, where his television appearances included on The One Show (BBC 1/Red Button) and Before The Morning After (SeeSo). He has also just made his Australian debut, appearing in the South African Allstars show at the Perth Comedy Festival.
“A rising star set to break out as a comic force to be reckoned with.” CNN, African Voices – Trevor Noah
“One of the best acts to happen to South African comedy.” The Argus
BEN VAN DER VELDE
Standing a statutesque five foot five inches high (not in heels) and weighing in at eleven stone (on a good day) Ben is the current light-middleweight contender for compering champion of Kilburn.
“Sharp and crafty gagsmith.” Chortle
“Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue.” Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
