Hal is easily one of the finest heavyweight acts on the British circuit right now, his blend of impotent fury at the world and pricking of his own pomposity making him  a real favourite.  He is the conscience of well-meaning liberal middle-class Britain, who desperately wants to make the world a better place, but only after he's had a crisp Chablis.  His huge skills has taken him all around the globe entertaining crowds as far afield as Indonesia, Singapore and the Falkland Islands.  Back at home he has been nominated for Best Club Comic multiple times, appeared in the film classics such as 'Mrs.Dalloway' and 'The Madness of King George' and smashed the living daylights out of his appearances on Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News For You and Sunday Night at the Palladium. 

"An absolute joy to watch." The Scotsman  

"You could see Hal play the O2...he's wonderful, truly wonderful." Digital Spy  

"Hugely talented." The Times 



Originally from New York and a product of the Japanese stand-up comedy scene (nope, we didn't realise it had one either), Spring is an punky, opinionated and idiosyncratic comic who has been tearing it up at global festivals for years.  

"She's fucking funny. You'd be hard pressed to find someone more delightful and life affirming than Spring Day. Oh and she's not drunk, that's her real walk." Brendon Burns

"Day's best material is when discussing her cerebal palsy. She's got just the right amount of irreverance and quite expertly makes the audience feel comfortable about laughing at it." The Skinny


One of the bravest and most original voice to emerge in UK comedy this decade, Jamali is a controversialist par excellence, just as comfortable tweaking the noses of liberal sensibilities on Live at the Apollo or putting himself in very real danger going native with the KKK in the Deep South on VICE TV.  Watching him live is an unforgettable experience with laughs (ad gasps) coming big, hard and often

"Maddix genuinely feels like a fresh voice." ★★★★ Chortle

"Something to offend everyone." ★★★★ The Sunday Times

"This is one of those shows you could happily watch—or actively experience—for hours." The List


If you love the surreal one-liner meanderings of American legends Mitch Hedburg and Stephen Wright, then you'll love the bewildering off-kilter excellence of Dave Green.  Listening to his gags is like enjoying a vivid poem which just happens to have unexpected punchlines hiding at the end of every line

“Fantastically original gags.” Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke 
“Could be a contender to follow in the footsteps of Milton Jones.” Chortle



Standing a statuesque five foot five inches high (not in heels) and weighing in at eleven stone (on a good day) Ben is the current light-middleweight contender for compering champion of North London.

"Sharp and crafty gagsmith, a life-giving compere." Chortle

"Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue." Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
