Andrew-Bird-202-2.jpgAndrew Bird… “Effortlessly engaging and funny as hell” – Rhod Gilbert “Beautifully observed and insightful…not only an entertaining story but a very funny hour of fine stand-up.” – Chortle “There’s an undercurrent of wisdom, hope and self-acceptance which delivers more soul than most shows you’ll see this year, but never undermines the comedy. Although his material is always funny and frequently hilarious, it’s his personal charm that makes this special.” – Fest


Josh DillonUp and coming comedian delivering dead-pan, dark, wry observational comedy.”Josh Dillon delivered an oddly warm and enjoyable routine, considering his act was so deadpan in style. The audience lapped it up, happily travelling along with his dry observations and his long pauses, all well-practiced and timed to perfection…”Dan Kington, Danny’s Comedy Club.



Jake Howie...an irreverent Kiwi comedian with a warm, quick-witted and frank take on life, love, sex and politics.”… I realised that speaking my ridiculous mind and making people laugh was like a dream come true for me. I then rallied all of my friends up and went to an open mic night in London and my squad laughed so loud I thought I was a genius after my first gig and contemplated what to call my show at the 02 that I was obviously only weeks away from.”…the story continues
