Winner of ‘Best Show’ at Leicester Comedy Festival 2020, Alex Hylton has been doing stand-up for a 3rd of his life. he’s lost relationships, given up a job and risked everything for the stage. But where does the stage end, and real life begin?
“Hylton takes charge of a room, fluent and funny storytelling is second nature to this comic” – Wee Review
A quick-witted, slow walking, fast rising star, Ricky Balshaw is without question, the funniest Paralympic Dressage medallist in the UK, perhaps the world.
Stepping over his cerebral palsy like it’s the mildest of inconveniences, Ricky pulls his audience into a joyfully dark world of self-depreciating hilarity. No sympathy vote is needed (or accepted) as Ricky dominates comedy stages up and down the UK.
A brilliant joke-smith and storyteller, this young man has comedy greatness in his bones.
Craig Deeley has been performing stand-up comedy since 2003 and has travelled all over the country, bringing his own style of observational anecdotes and one-liners to all sorts of gigs and events, from winning a place in the semi-final of Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny in 2004, to headlining the Scilly Isles Comedy Festival in 2017 and 2021.
During 2019-2020 Craig supported Paul Sinha (The Chase) on tour, and in 2022 reached the semi-final of British Stand-Up Comedian of the Year.
A highly distinctive performer and deft writer of finely crafted jokes, Peter Brush unassumingly takes the stage with his slight bespectacled frame and scruffy hair, before consummately conquering it with an arsenal of razor sharp quirky one-liners and peerlessly original routines, all delivered in an amusingly awkward fashion.
A former BBC New Comedy Award finalist, Peter performs at clubs all over the UK and occasionally abroad. He has also written for BBC Radio 4’s ‘The News Quiz’, ‘The Show What You Wrote’ and ‘Newsjack’ and was the support act for Alexei Sayle’s 2020 show. Other acts he has also supported on tour include Jonathan Pie, Jason Manford, Fern Brady, Arthur Smith and Paul Sinha.
‘compellingly hilarious.. first-class gag writing… an original and achingly funny voice’ – Chortle
‘I love Peter Brush, what a comic’ – Jason Manford
