Some of the finest and most interesting acts in London, for a fiver, on a Sunday when there’s nothing else to do.


“A joyous hour of props based lunacy… Utterly delightful” **** TIME OUT

“A joyous extravaganza of prop-led bonkersness” **** THE LIST

NOMINEE: Chortle Award 2016 – Breakthrough Act



**** “Unbridled belly laughs, the kind that infect an audience and hum permanently in the air” THE SKINNY


“Fine writing, evoking silly images and ideas, combines with a distinctive look to make him memorable” CHORTLE




“Wonderful surrealism” THE GUARDIAN



“Her strangeness, her vulnerabilities and her sass make a pretty engaging package. Lyons’s debut certainly achieves her main aim of showing sexy, nerdy and funny aren’t mutually incompatible” CHORTLE



(Dan Lees and Neil Frost)

"Lees plays with the normal, gives it a spiritual-origami fold, a twist and a turn and suddenly a move or a mundane sentence is an act of comedy genius.. Lees is a master of simplicity” FRINGE REVIEW

Hosted By


“Witty, weird and dark, the one to watch out for: at the spearhead of a wave of great new comics. All hail Alexander Bennett!” HARRY HILL

“Warm, insane and very funny” Steven Appleby, THE GUARDIAN
