One of the finest writers and performers of his generation, Sean is already hugely well respected by his peers and slowly, but surely the wider world is catching on. A marvellous mixture of pin-sharp observation, deceptively skillful physical comedy and an enormous lexicon – with which to display his multiple hilarious neuroses – Sean is poetic, dyspeptic and very, very funny. He is so highly rated that he has spent much of the past few years as tour support for Ricky Gervais, Doc Brown and Katherine Ryan, whilst also appearing on Russell Howard’s Stand-Up Central and Live at the Comedy Store. Sean’s most recent TV outing was starring in Viceland’s ‘Brexit Stage Left’ alongside Jamali Maddix, Fern Brady & Alfie Brown.

Jake started stand-up after gaining a following on Twitter under the pseudonym @LittleLostLad. He then decided to put down his iPhone and pick up a microphone. It has proven to be a great choice with him making it to the semi-finals of the BBC New comedy Award within 6 months of his first gig, allowing him to perform on both BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 2. His joke writing has lead him to write for such shows as 8 Out of 10 Cats, BBC’S Mock The Week, and E4′s Virtually Famous.
Over the last couple of years Jake has provided the tour support for Seann Walsh, Rob Beckett, Romesh Ranganathan and Kerry Godliman and this year heads out with Tom Allen on his Absolutely Tour.

Semi-regular, ever-popular MC Troy Hawke should need no introduction, but here you go. Milo McCabe’s latest comic incarnation is quite superb. Troy is an RP speaking, cravat wearing 1940s dandy who is on an admirable mission to change the world. He is a lovable fool with a dash of sophistication. Also he’s blisteringly funny. When a comic says he has ‘audience badinage’ you know you are in for a treat.
“Intelligent and effective satire, a character of real comic integrity” – Broadway Baby
