JAMES ACASTER

One of the biggest stars of UK comedy right now, James Acaster toured the country last year with a staggering three show Trelogy, performing Recognise, Represent and Reset consecutively over three nights in each venue. These three shows plus Recap form the Netflix series Repertoire - the first ever stand up mini series with an overarching narrative. In 2017 James also released his debut book Classic Scrapes, making the Sunday Times bestseller list.

"Weaving together unlikely strands in his routines to form bizarre, even beautiful, comic structures" The Telegraph

AHIR SHAH

Ahir Shah has rapidly become one of the key voices in UK comedy, whose sharp, intellectual brand of stand-up features a blend of philosophical inquiry, political vigour and top quality gags. His astute and hilarious observations on the current social and political situation have seen him receive nominations for Best Show at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards in 2017 and 2018, as well as make appearances on The Now Show (BBC Radio 4) and Newsnight (BBC2).

"Astonishing ... by turns furiously nihilistic and desperately warm and loving" The Observer

HARRIET DYER

Fresh and unique, it’s a pleasure to spend time in Harriet’s company as she weaves her surreal and hilarious tales. An inimitable raconteur, it’s easy to see how she is already making a big noise in the comedy world.

“She’s got funny bones!” Kevin Bridges
