Elliot Steel’s hilarious and honest routines involve gritty real life tales of growing up on a South London council estate, all delivered in his refreshingly individual style.

Still only 20, Elliot has a confidence and stage presence way beyond his years. Catch him now before the stadium tour.
“One to watch” – The Independent
If you are a fan of the ‘one-liner’ you’ll love the fiendishly clever Mark Simmons. Mark delivers a glorious set packed full of gags you’ll be claiming as your own in the office for years to come. Following in the footsteps of Stewart Francis, Steven Wright, Milton Jones and Tim Vine, Mark plays so beautifully with the English language delivering gags of the highest order.
“A talented comic with an artisan’s grasp of joke-writing” – Chortle
Back by popular demand, again as MC, is the exquisite Troy Hawke. 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.
“Consummately entertaining and enviably talented.” – Broadway Baby
