Micky is one of the most promising and exciting acts to hit the circuit in years. A bedrock of surgically sharp writing combined with a cool and confident delivery make her an exceptional comedian. Her material moves quickly from devastating honesty, to brutal whimsy, to on-point social observations. She already has the aura of a successful comic well beyond her years. Micky has only been gigging 2 years but has advanced explosively in that time and is currently in the finals for 3 national competitions, all making it look easy in her second language. Micky is currently in the running for Chortle’s Best Newcomer Award, was recently picked to be part of the prestigious Just For Laughs London New Faces showcase and can be seen smashing gigs all over the UK.

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.
