International star Gina is back with us for the second time, her first gig with us was utterly aweinspring and this show will no doubt be the same. Star of Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week and much much more. We are grabbing Gina whilst she is back from NYC for Christmas, talk about timing!
Gina was named one of the top 10 rising talents in the Hollywood Reporter.
She is also known in the US for being the only British comedian to ever appear on the iconic Def Comedy Jam, as well as for her hilarious appearances on The Tonight Show (NBC), Crashing (HBO), @Midnight on Comedy Central, her 1 hour Stand Up Special, Skinny B*tch on Showtime & now as the British Correspondent on Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.
She recently shot her 3rd Stand Up Special, Gina Yashere: Ticking Boxes, filmed at the iconic 02 Brixton Academy, London, in front of over 2000 of her fans, which she sold to NBC owned, Seeso TV in the US. She also got her 4th award in a row for “Best Comedian” at the recent Black Entertainment & Comedy Awards (UK).

We have support from rising star GARY DELANEY who's dark, brilliant one liners have been storming it all over the live circuit for years. He's now made dozens of appearances on Mock The Week and is on Live @ Apollo in November.
He loves each and every gag and you can’t help but be carried away by his infectious charm. He’s like a cheeky schoolboy who can barely hide his glee with each and every punch line.
Gary’s the only comic ever to have got two gags in the same top 10 for Dave’s TV Funniest Jokes from the Edinburgh Fringe.
