A regular finalist in a variety of new act competitions, Neil has a smart incisive wit, married to natural Irish charm that's making him one of the most enticing new prospects on the circuit. Don't be fooled by his sweet, schoolboyish exterior - there is a powerful comic mind at work behind those eyes!

Still a relative newcomer to the London comedy scene, Eleanor has the swagger and inventiveness of a veteran. A delightfully bamboozled presence on stage disguises a scalpel-like approach to dissecting the daftness of modern life and makes her a seriously funny proposition on stage. It's no surprise that despite her few years in the capital she's already a regular at the prestigious Comedy Store.
She's also a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, she was featured on Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience on Comedy Central. She has played Glastonbury, Montreal Just For Laughs and all of the Irish comedy festivals. The IFTA-nominated Irish Pictorial Weekly on RTE was co-written and co-performed by Eleanor. Her National Therapy Project was nominated for the First Fortnight Award in the Dublin Fringe Festival this year.

Although very new to the world of stand-up comedy, Joe is already proving himself to be quite the baby-faced assassin, having appeared in the prestigious So You Think You're Funny Final and winning the Amused Moose Breakthrough Award at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe. Since then he's grown even more as a comic (no pun intended, but he is also a mahoosive 6 foot 9, a fact which he wrings all the excellent, original jokes out of.) He's a warm, charming presence, an adept storyteller and has a keen eye for an unexpected punchline. We reckon he could well be a superstar in the next few years. Come watch the story begin right here...
