From his humble beginnings as a promoter and compere in Aldershot in 1993, Ben has become a popular headliner on the UK comedy circuit and regularly performs all around the world. On the TV he’s been a guest on Jonathan Ross’ and Graham Norton’s shows, Mock the Week, Buzzcocks, They Think It’s All Over and 8 out of 10 Cats, and he has written jokes for Paul Kaye and Jimmy Carr. Ben has also warmed up an entire series for Joan Rivers. (Ben was initially booked for January but was unable to make it due to illness.)
“The term circuit legend is overused, but Norris is one of a handful that have been headlining for more than two decades and rarely departs a stage without leaving it torn to shreds in his wake. A master of the craft, this will be some of the most polished stand-up you are likely to see.” - GQ Magazine
At just 18 years old, Tom is one of the youngest comedians working professionally on the UK circuit. He won the prestigious Comedy Store King Gong in 2014 and has just won Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year following in the footsteps of Johnny Vegas and Josh Widdicombe. Tom’s first stand up gig was at the tender age of 16 and he now performs regularly for some of the UK’s top clubs. In the last six months he has supported some of his comedy heroes on tour including Jack Whitehall and Harry Hill. Catch this natural talent before he blossoms into a super star.
“Outstanding young comic and one to watch. Headed for great things!” – Harry Hill
George is a Bristol-based musical comic who, despite having only been gigging since 2013, has already racked up over 300 gigs, enjoyed success in numerous competitions and is currently performing in clubs all over the UK. George has supported the likes of Russell Howard and Stephen Merchant and last year he made his Edinburgh debut, having beaten off stiff competition to win a place in Bound & Gagged’s ‘AAA’ showcase at The Pleasance.
“Rigden is the result of a genetic mash-up between Mitch Benn and Tim Key, perhaps with a few strands of Ricky Gervais’ DNA thrown in. Very Funny Stuff.” – Chortle
Chris Brooker is an incredibly versatile comedian and compere. Equally at home in front of a genteel arts centre crowd or two thousand bikers at a rally, his energy and ability to connect with any audience has stood him in good stead over his fourteen years on the comedy circuit. Original material coupled with a true gift for ad-libbing also means that no two performances will ever be completely the same. Since his debut in 2001 Chris has performed all across the UK & Ireland as well as overseas in Europe and North America. An award winning writer, Chris can also be seen on Challenge TV every fortnight with his “Turnbuckle Pad” comedy segment on WrestleTalk TV.
“Very funny, very quick, on the spot humour” – BBC
