DAVE FULTON

Whoever it was who decided that Americans don’t have any sense of irony, they forgot to tell Dave. This wry Seattle wag is positively brimming over with ironic invective. He even fronted an amusing and perceptive report – for Newsnight, no less – begging Brits to celebrate their own heritage, rather than aping American pop culture. Dave is opinionated, isn’t afraid to pull punches in his observations, yet has a deceptively laid back stage manner that disguises a raw aggression.

“Compelling… a real breath of fresh air” – The Independent

JARRED CHRISTMAS

Jarred has a unique style that deftly mixes gags with storytelling. He has a dynamic onstage persona and the ability to improvise and roll with anything that’s thrown his way, making his comedy sizzle with originality. His radio credits include Act Your Age (BBC Radio 4), and Flight of the Conchords (BBC Radio 2).

“Jarred is human Red Bull – you will laugh and laugh and then you won’t believe he’s been on for 20 minutes.” Comics Choice – Time Out

TOM WRIGGLESWORTH

Some things get to Tom. Some things get to him so much that he has to resort to that old fashioned form of release, writing a letter. And that’s where the fun starts.

Describing himself as having the body of Peter Crouch and the face of Postman Pat, but nowadays looking more like a stretched Crystal Tips, Tom likes to experiment.

“The ultimate crowd pleaser.” – The Guardian

PAUL TONKINSON

A self-confessed professional northerner – and far worse, a celebrity Manchester United fan, Paul is a star of comedy in all its forms. Be it on stage, in character or as a TB host, this man does not fail to make you giggle. Having made his name as host of The Sunday Show, he took an even bigger step into the limelight when he replaced Johnny Vaughan briefly on The Big Breakfast. On stage, Paul leads his audience on a guided tour through the differences in male and female logic and can take the mickey out of almost every region in Britain and further afield.

TOM TOAL

Tom is a comedian, writer and actor. One of comedy’s rising stars he performed his debut show On The Scrapheap about the break-up of his 6 year relationship at the Edinburgh and Leicester Festivals in 2010 achieving widespread acclaim and reviews. The follow up Rom-Coms and Revolutions followed in similar vein playing to a complete sell out audience for the full run. In 2013 Tom performed at The Comedy Reserve with The Pleasance at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and in 2014 he became an Amused Moose Best Comedy Show finalist for his solo Edinburgh Festival Fringe show, Prequel. In March 2017, he opened gigs for Rob Brydon for some of Rob’s tour across the country.

RUSSELL HICKS

Russell is one of the most exciting new comic talents coming out of the USA, having already appeared on numerous one to watch line ups and gaining a seriously impressive list of credits. Now based in London, Russell has become known for his risk taking and thrillingly quick wit – his charismatic, improvisational style making him a huge force to be reckoned with.
