Alan Francis

In 1995 he co-wrote and co-starred in Jeffrery Dahmer Is Unwell at the Edinburgh Festival, and in 2002 he presented his one-man show Clobbered there.

He has worked as a writer/performer on Alistair McGowan's Big Impression, BBC Scotland's Pulp Video, The 11 O'Clock Show and Alan Partridge's Knowing Me, Knowing Yule.

"As smooth, classy and elegant as a vintage Scotch, laconic Francis is a seductive performer." – Chortle

Lou Sanders

Lou has written additional material for Miranda Hart’s 2014 tour. She’s written on two series of C4’s Stand up for the Week, BBC3’s Laughtershock & various TV pilots. She was in the top 10 jokes from the Edinburgh Fringe 2012, Dave TV, and also got joke of the day in the Independent.  She also used to be in a joke band called Geoff Leopard.

“‘From the crazy off-beat surrealism of Lou Sanders, it seems like something new is happening in comedy.’
– The Independent

Michael Fabbri
Michael Fabbri quickly stamped his mark on the UK circuit appearing in the 2003 final of Channel 4’s 'So You Think You’re Funny?' and rapidly earned a reputation as one of the most promising up and coming comedians on the circuit; A reputation that he is living up to, regularly performing for the best clubs in the country.

With a dark and honest approach to some of life’s more touchy subjects Fabbri manages to effortlessly slip between some harsh, controversial topics to light-hearted silliness to make for a refreshingly eclectic and brilliantly funny act. 

"Fabbri's distinctively off-kilter views and easy shifting of gears between bewilderment and acute perception is effective..." – Chortle

Dane Baptiste
Dane Baptiste is a stand up comedian from South East London. He first won acclaim on the urban circuit performing alongside some of its biggest stars.

Since moving over to the mainstream circuit he has risen up the ranks quickly achieving notable success in numerous comedy competitions and is now a regular at the country’s most famous venues.

"A unique and engaging comic voice that has the potential to go very far indeed" 
Sara Shulman, Comedy Blogedy

“Intelligent and genuinely hilarious at the same time, a rare and delightful combination”
Adam Bloom, Comedian

Javier Jarquin
