Gary Delaney is widely regarded as being the most quotable one-liner comic in the country.

He projects the barely hidden delight of a cheeky schoolboy and the audience can’t help but be carried along by his infectious charm. He’s a regular guest on Mock The Week and 7 Day Saturday and has made appearances on Dave’s One Night Stand, Twitter-based panel show Ten Million Comedians, Channel 4’s Robert’s Web, Loose Ends and Russell Kane’s Whistle-Stop Tour.

Sean Hughes is an award winning writer, actor, presenter and comedian. As a comedian, he is the youngest winner of the coveted Perrier Award and his return to the fringe has produced yearly critical praise and awards including a Fringe First for his short plays, Dehydrated and Travellin’ Light.

Sean wrote and starred in Channel 4’s cult favourite Sean’s Show, and had a long stint as team captain on Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

Pete Firman is recognised as the UK’s leading comedian/magician. He starred in BBC1’s prime-time Saturday night programme The Magicians and his skill for fusing magic and comedy has made him one of the most in demand magicians.

Jarred Christmas is a comedian and actor whose ten years on the circuit have catapulted him onto shows such as Mock The Week, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, 8 out of 10 Cats and Argumental.

He is also an accomplished actor, working with Warwick Davies both on stage and in the web series, Dwarves Assemble.
