Having only started on the circuit in 2016, her anecdotal material and self-deprecating charm have quickly won her praise up and down the country. Winning So You Think You're Funny last year and being crowned Amused Moose best Newcomer this August, as well as gaining a nomination for Best Newcomer. Clearly big things are on the horizon. She is a comedian who leaves the audience belly laughing, giving standing ovations, throwing roses onstage, naming their babies after her - but most importantly, she is a comedian who never exaggerates.
"Exudes an appealing, quirky energy and is clearly a natural wit." Chortle
"There’s something incredibly watchable about Adam – whether it’s her effervescence onstage, finding jokes in the minutiae of life or her fantastic physicality. Inevitably she’ll be compared to a young, female Peter Kay, except her jokes and performance are far more eccentric." The Skinny
“From fearless and funny to heart-stoppingly raw.” Evening Standard
“The stories are awkward, humiliating, awful and hilarious, occasionally shocking but deeply compelling.” iNews
Delightfully absurd, Fran is another alumni of the Alternative Comedy Memorial Society who has taken the core tenants of clowning and fed them through her own bizarre sensibilities.

AND YOUR RESIDENT HOST:
BEN VAN DER VELDE
Freshly returned from the Edinburgh Festival, Ben is ready to take the helm at Good Ship once more and steer it through the vast ocean of comedy we have on offer. One of the quickest wits around and a much-loved compere, he always brings a jam-packed back of nonsense, silliness and wisecracks to every gig he hosts.
"Sharp and crafty gagsmith, a life-giving compere." Chortle
"Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue." Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
“The perfect comedy club host – he is a master of audience interaction. The audience weren’t just warmed up, but pretty hysterical even before the first act of the night hit the stage.” Huffington Post
