Prop lunatic Wes entertains with his hilarious and anarchic physical
comedy routines. Easily one of the most exciting acts on the comedy
and cabaret circuit, this is definitely one of the zaniest shows around.
Mad as a box of badgers, Wes raises the roof with his physical
interactive comedy. A rip-roaring jump into the surreal.
Regarding the use of props in his performance Wes quips “Show
business sometimes lures people who didn't get enough love early in life.
I feel as a child I didn't get enough unsupervised time with power tools
but who has perfect parents?”
James is a dry, slick and subtle stand-up who delivers unexpected twists
and turns during his set as he deconstructs his art.
He made his name as a model and actor, and is best known for
seminal roles in ‘Hollyoaks’ (C4) and ‘Casualty’ (BBC1) and presenting
‘SM:TV’ & ‘CD:UK’ (ITV), alongside Cat Deeley. He has appeared on
‘Never Mind the Buzzcocks’ (BBC2), 'Celebrity Come Dine With Me' (C4)
with fellow comedians Paul Foot and Joey Page, and is a regular guest
and contributor on ‘Soccer AM’ (Sky 1) and Radio 5 Live.
Abi Roberts and her big hair exploded onto the stand-up comedy scene in 2011, after a number of years as a musical and cabaret performer. Her fast-paced humour and mocking impersonations leave audiences wanting more.
“One of GQ’s top ten newer stand-ups to see… Brilliant, funny and charming. True genius” – James Mullinger, Comedy Editor, GQ Magazine.
“Truly hysterical Abi Roberts has definitely got the funny moves. She does it all with genuine charm and character, with big laughs. Abi talks entertainingly, then takes apart Loose Women and she completely, superbly annihilates it. She uses her vocal skills to mock, and her Jane McDonald impression is worth seeing alone.” - Chortle
Inside every middle aged, middle class, white man, there's a Dan Kielty struggling to keep it together.
First taking to the comedy mic as a dare, Dan realised during that first performance that everything he had done with his life prior to that had been a complete waste of time.
Since then, by some fluke, he's managed to share stages with many of his comedy heroes including Katherine Ryan, Zoe Lyons and Joe Wilkinson.
His 'every man' charm and endearing observations have quickly made him a popular act with audiences and fellow comedians.
Jake Baker has been performing comedy for 4 years now and
has quickly established himself as an act to keep an eye on.
He has reached the finals of several prestigious comedy competitions,
(LST NAOTY 2016, Bath Comedy Festival NAOTY 2015) and has
impressed audiences with his unique style and endearing wit.
