Nathan Caton is one of the most exciting young comedians on the scene. Gigging since the tender age of 19, over the last decade he has established himself both as a circuit headliner, and a name on TV and radio. Within his first few years on stage, he had picked up various accolades and coveted plaudits including the Chortle Student Comic of the Year award and Broadcast Hotshot and written and starred in a pilot for Paramount Comedy (now Comedy Central) entitled The Nathan Caton Show.
Since then Caton has gone from strength to strength, wowing audiences at comedy clubs up and down the UK, and on his numerous TV and radio appearances, with his delightfully charming blend of personal and political comedy.

Rob ColemanMore than just great hair! A very versatile act. I'm a conversational gag merchant. I have been a semi - pro stand up for 10 years or so, closing, opening, and middling my way around the country with a mix of beautifully written gags and truish stories, together with some audience banter. I'm also a very experienced MC, able to compere both 'nice' rooms and rowdy weekend clubs.

Saskia Preston, writer for BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Newsjack and BBC Radio 4 The News Quiz and more recently, The Now Show, is making a name for herself as an act who delivers up offbeat one liners and observations in a unique and playful style, and as a young, gay comedian, she has a interesting perspective on life.
A finalist in the Max Turner Comedy Award, Funny Women Award, Comedy Knights Fresh Comedian and Laughing Horse New Comedian of the Year Final. Saskia was also shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Award 2013broadcast on BBC Radio 4 extra.
As well as gigging around the UK, and recently overseas in Norway, Saskia has performed at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival every year since 2013 where she’s shared mixed bills and hosting her own compilation shows. Last summer, Saskia starred in the prestigious AAA Stand-Up Late show at The Pleasance and this coming summer she will be presenting her characteristic quick wit and hilarious delivery for her debut solo show.
Born in the UK, Saskia spent her childhood in Hong Kong and Portugal before returning to Britain to study English at the University of St Andrews. Previous to starting comedy, Saskia had a career in advertising and journalism and has written for, among others, The Guardian and The Financial Times.
 

Jason Stampe delivers an outstanding blend of jokes and crowd interaction that will leave you feeling he must have planned the whole thing out.

David Tsonos - If you want serious comedy David Tsonos is not your man. His comedy stems from being the youngest of five boys, babysitting his nephews and his cat.
He has appeared at the Vancouver Comedy Festival and can be heard on Satellite radio. Whether it’s a Bar gig, a Comedy Club or a Corporate function David makes them laugh until they can laugh no more. (Well maybe a little more.)
David has toured Canada and the USA – and is now based in London.
