Simon Evans
Simon is well known to the British comedy-going public from TV shows such as Live at the Apollo and Stand Up for the Week. His own acclaimed radio show, Simon Evans Goes To Market, returns to BBC Radio 4 for a fourth series this Spring.

A funny, incisive and informed look at the economics behind, well, everything!

“Masterclass in socio-political comedy”
The Scotsman

“Super-sharp dry wit”
Time Out

Zoe Lyons
Zoe’s trademark high energy, brilliantly observed routines and sharply written material has left her with an ever-growing fan base. Last year she won both the Comedian’s Comedian Award and Chortle Best Club Comic.

As well as being a series regular on Mock The Week and The Wright Stuff,
Zoe’s extensive TV credits include Room 101, Dara O’Briain’s Go 8-Bit, Channel 4′s Comedy Gala, Live At The Apollo and many more.

“Lyons has what it takes to delight any crowd”
The Guardian

“Confident and razor sharp”
Observer Magazine

Alistair Barrie
Alistair is one of the top headliners on the international comedy circuit. He has performed in over 40 countries including acclaimed performances in Australia, Cape Town, Mumbai and the legendary Comedy Cellar in New York. He is a regular at London’s world-famous Comedy Store and a core member of their weekly topical ‘Cutting Edge’ team.

“No one does righteous indignation with the same brio as Barrie, an inheritor of the splenetic mantle of the great 80s alternative comedians”
The Guardian

“Barrie’s analytical nous and store of snappy gags mark him out… Excellent”
The Independent

James Gill (MC)
Our resident MC returns!

James Gill is a comedian, presenter, warm-up artiste and writer, establishing himself as one of the most popular compères on the circuit.

“I would go to the ends of the earth to share a stage with James Gill. He’s a sharp & energetic hero of club comedy and a face we’ll undoubtedly be seeing all over TV very soon”
Katherine Ryan

“One of the most imaginative MCs on the circuit. The crowd love him”
Rob Beckett
