Brilliantly wry, award winning comic Chris Stokes has been performing stand-up professionally since 2009. With a hilarious and erudite turn of phrase, Stokes has been described as playing on social misconceptions and dismantling them via gag-packed first-hand anecdotes told with a charming, offbeat sincerity. His career has seen him support the likes of Milton Jones, Jason Manford and Stewart Francis on tour, appear on ‘Dave’s One Night Stand’, BBC Three, BBC Radios 4 and 5Live, take four critically acclaimed solo shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and write gags for Have I got New For You and The News Quiz.

Richard Massara was the winner of two regional comedy awards in 2012 and has been living the high life on the fame, fortune and groupies that those types of accolades bring. Sharp, witty and possessing a charmingly dirty mind, Richard has been making audiences laugh across the UK as well as filling the all important ‘white middle class man’ quota that is so under-represented in comedy today. He is also an expert at standing still and smiling which has seen him grace your TV screens in many a truly embarrassing television commercial. He is also a podcast host and producer, working with Gary Delaney on the Panelbeaters podcast and resident host of the 2000 Trees festival comedy tent. “A good writer and a genuine natural.” – The Stand
Now pretty much a staple at Travestees, the inimitable Troy Hawke is back as MC.
