“He really is rewriting the comedy rulebook” - **** Time Out

Sofie Hagen
Winner Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer 2015
Fresh from an incredible Edinburgh fringe which saw her scoop the ultimate prize for her debut hour. She has previously also won the Laughing Horse New act of the year competition and the Chortle award for best newcomer.

“She has an understated delivery, leaving the power of this performance in the strength of her material” - ***** The Skinny
“killer lines and callbacks… cunningly crafted material” - **** Time Out
“a really interesting new voice with something to say and a great way of saying it” - ***** The Mirror

Matthew Crosby
One third of the multi-award winning sketch troupe Pappy’s and an awesome standup in his own right . As well as writting and staring in BBC3’s Badults Matthew has appeared on 8 Out of 10 Cats, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Celebrity Fifteen to One and 8 Out of 10 Cats does Countdown.
“Winsome and charming” – The Independent
“who else is going to have a front row littered with nerds and geeks?” **** – The List

Sam Fletcher
Super silly and fun Sam Fletcher made his name as Tim Key’s tech before breaking out on his own. His debut show was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards. His style of combining silly drawings with daft magic has led him to be described as a mixture of Tommy Cooper and Josie Long. 
“An uplifting hotch-potch packed with content… Put simply no other show has made me smile so much this year” - **** The Independent
“what I come to Edinburgh for….the fun of subversion and the pleasure of seeing a man more in control than he likes to let on” - **** The Times.

Without doubt one of the best MC’s on the circuit Tom has won critical acclaim for his Edinburgh shows including Three Weeks Editors’ Award.
“Ingenious and fresh” – Time Out
“He is dynamite, wrangling a laugh out of every single audience chat… Mega recommended” – The Skinny
“Tom Webb is a cheeky, inventive, damn funny fellow… One of the best MCs on the circuit” – London Is Funny
