Co-host of The Bugle Podcast
Alice is one of the sharpest-tongued rising stars in global comedy. Already an established voice in her native Australia she has come to greater prominence in the UK as one of the new generation of comics entrusted to take up the reins of John Oliver's co-presenter seat. Her shows have played to packed out houses in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide, New Zealand, London and the Edinburgh Fringe, whilst she has also appeared on Radio 4 and given her own very funny and touching Ted Talk.
“There’s something almost literary about Alice Fraser’s incisive, dextrous hour of compelling storytelling...she could give Daniel Kitson a run for his money." Chortle
“Her stand-up is poignant and gut-punchingly funny...Alice Fraser’s a total star in her own right." ★★★★★ The Herald Sun

Times of India lists him among India’s top 5 English speaking comedians, having played over 750 shows and sold out houses across India, the Middle East, Singapore, Hong Kong, San Francisco, South by Southwest Austin Texas, Laugh Boston, New York.
He is now turning his attention towards the UK. He has been a regular at the London Comedy Store but is now looking to share his observations on the British influence of India and absurdities thereof to a wider British audience. In 2016, Anuvab was chosen among the top 14 comedians in India to have his comedy special available on Amazon Prime Video among the premiere shows of Amazon's India debut, and joined the hilarious pan-global satirical podcast The Bugle alongside Andy Zaltzman.

Harriet Braine is a musical comedian, who dedicates a remarkably large portion of her oeuvre to Art History.
After winning Best Newcomer at the 2016 Musical Comedy Awards, she started gigging around London and the South East and has played at venues as diverse as Up The Creek, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Brighton Komedia, and that building that looks like a cheese grater. She reached the final of Gilded Balloon’s So You Think You’re Funny? competition, and was crowned the winner of the Funny Women Stage Award 2016.
