An whirlwind of spite, rage and fury at the norms of the world, Bobby has been winning awards and lighting up stages with his thermonuclear power since his arrival in the UK.   He's become a regular on the likes of 8 Out of 10 Cats and Never Mind the Buzzcocks, let the camera of VICE TV into his life for a reality TV show about his wedding to come Harriet Kemsley and bagged the prestigious support slot for US powerhouse Bill Burr when his tour came to the UK

“A bona fide tour de force.” The Guardian 

“Will stamp pictures in your brain that may never go away.” ★★★★ The Scotsman 


Francis Foster is a comedian who talks about the important things in life, like failure and how to deal with having a psychopath for a mother. He’s just returned from supporting Eddie Izzard on his Force Majeure tour and opened for him in both Barcelona and Madrid. Francis gigs regularly at the best comedy clubs in the UK and came third in the prestigious NATYS at The Bloomsbury Theatre.

“Bitterly amusing gags.” Chortle


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.

Co-host of The Bugle Podcast

“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


Samantha is an award-winning comedian and actress who has been all your telly in some huge shows including The Crown, Silent Witness, Call the Midwife and several BBC Comedies. Her feminist science stand up shows have taken the Edinburgh Fringe by storm; selling out her runs at The Pleasance Courtyard two years in a row, sell out extra shows added and excellent reviews. She is currently embarking on a UK tour with her smash hit show 1 Woman, a High Flyer and a Flat Bottom about the lost women of science, beginning at the Soho Theatre in December 2017.

One of the funniest and warmest presences on the London comedy scene, Hyde has been charming crowds with his gentle insights into life as a young British-Sikh for many years.  He has produced, written and presented a number of hi-octane radio shows for community radios, including breakfast shows and specialist music shows. He has also appeared on TV and film, speed dating in Gurinder Chadha’s movie “It’s A Wonderful Afterlife”. He was also featured on the BBC Asian Network as part of Meera Syal’s Comedy Night, celebrating the next generation of Asian stand-up comics.

For a decade the Good Ship has been one of the best comedy clubs in north London. It has now moved to a great room above the Colonel Fawsett pub. Still mc’d by the brilliant Ben Van der Velde it promises the same high standard of acts for just a few quid. Only a small gripe, the downstairs bar needs to sharpen up to get the comedy punters their drinks in the two intervals. Visited The Colonel Fawcett on 2017-11-06
