ALFIE BROWN

Alfie’s firebrand style of comedy has been forged from years of pushing boundaries and experimentation. Searingly honest about both himself and the world at large, he is a superb storyteller, astute social commentator and brave comic explorer prepared to find laughs in the darkest of caves. Natural stage presence combined with explosive material makes for a thrilling performance every time he hits the stage.

"Thrilling ... extremely funny ... a distinctive dissenting voice." Evening Standard

“Mapping a route to a different class of humour." Guardian

“Establishing himself as one of the gutsiest, most compelling voices on the comedy circuit.” Time Out

"All the potential to be one of this country’s best comics: perceptive, provocative, political, and playful. And, most of all, damn funny." Chortle

KELLY CONVEY

Kelly Convey is an ‘in-your face and reassuringly confident’ (Chortle) comedian who is not one to mince her words when giving audiences an insight into what modern women really think. While her outspoken and forward-thinking musings may go against the grain, “there’s a winning authenticity to her material” (Chortle) that is refreshing and relatable. Voted by The Metro as ‘1 of 9 Hilarious Women to Look Out for in 2017’ she has already built up a formidable arsenal of jokes and stories after months on tour as support act for Russell Kane and Alan Carr.

"Talented newcomer." Time Out

"Kelly is a bright and filthy new star." Funny Women

ALISON SPITTLE

Writer and star of the sitcom 'Nowhere Fast' (RTE) as well as her own sky comedy short (Sky Arts) and a regular guest host of the Guilty Feminist podcast, Alison is one of the most original, innovative and exciting new acts to come out of Ireland in recent years.

"A kind of genius." Irish Times

"If you enjoyed, say, Fleabag or Sharon Horgan's stuff, you'll probably love this." Irish Independent

ALEX KEALY

We presume that if Marcus Brigstocke ever manages to clone himself and then shed 25 years, he'd look and sound something like Alex Kealy. Erudite, eloquent and sharply funny, he's adept at finding jokes in intensely gnarly socio-political issues, as well as his own personal shortcomings.

“Very high on laughs. The gag-per-minute ratio for this show is impressive... clever and imaginative.” The List

“Enjoyable stage presence with shrewd comic chops.” Fest

DAVID TSONOS

If you want serious comedy David Tsonos is not your man. His comedy stems from being the youngest of five boys, babysitting ...his nephews and his cat. Starting off in Canada in 1999 and now making London UK his home he has performed in over 15 countries. He has appeared at numerous fringe festivals in the UK including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bath and Hastings. He will continue to make people laugh until Aliens with no sense of humour take over Earth.

AND YOUR RESIDENT HOST:

BEN VAN DER VELDE

One of the quickest wits around and a much-loved compere, he always brings a jam-packed back of nonsense, silliness and wisecracks to every gig he hosts.

"Sharp and crafty gagsmith, a life-giving compere." Chortle

"Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue." Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

“The perfect comedy club host – he is a master of audience interaction. The audience weren’t just warmed up, but pretty hysterical even before the first act of the night hit the stage.” Huffington Post
