Suzi is one of those acts who has very quietly gone about her business of becoming a completely excellent act and is now on the verge of a major breakthrough.  She has supported Romesh Ranganathan, Kevin Bridges, Josh Widdicombe and Alan Carr on multiple tours and is now on a joint-tour with fellow rising star (and Like Minded Friend, as their podcast says) Tom Allen.  She is a born, powerhouse performer and her past two shows, focusing on her working-class Portsmouth upbringing have brought her even closer to the mainstream success that is surely just around the corner.  As seen on Channel 4, E4, BBC3, Comedy Central, Dave 
and heard on BBC Radio 4.

"A stand-up gem." The Guardian

"Ruffell deserves to be a much bigger name." Evening Standard

"Ruffell has nabbed the working class comedy crown for her generation. Sparky, energising, fun, an accomplished act who knows how to engage an audience." Chortle


When he's not being one of the finest new joke writers in the country Josh is an international Fusball player and his nifty footwork on the pitch must surely influence his bamboozling punchlines.  He has a unique and askew view of the world which makes him unbelievable fun to watch.  Daft, punchy and a one in a million act that you'll bloody love.  

English Comedian of the Year Winner 2016

“A peculiar offbeat mind.” Chortle


Bold, fresh and always bang on point, over the past couple of years Athena has grown into the comedian that her potential has always promised.  She is a 2017 nominee for the 99 Club Female Comedians’ Bursary and has been invited to write for the News Quiz on BBC Radio 4.  She has also appeared on BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Radio Wales and the BBC World Service, guested on BBC Five Live and performed at the Johannesburg international Comedy Festival.

"Authentic, observational comedy presented beautifully…pleasingly original.” ★★★★  Broadway Baby 

“An intelligent set that managed to be both easily accessible and playful and still say something serious.” Bruce Dessau, Beyond the Joke

“Socially astute…savvy observations.” Chortle


Just look at his big brown lovely eyes! Behind those deep pits of gentle sweetness lies a tremendous comic brain that has been honed by years at the forefront of the UK sketch and improv scene as part of the much loved BBC Radio 4, Chortle-Award nominated storytelling sketch geniuses The Beta Males. He also plays Lord Fear in Knightmare Live and commentates on the hit videogame comedy show McNeil and Pamphilon Go 8 Bit. He was trained in Chicago style long form improvisation by a Second City alumnus and is a UK cast member of the award-winning improv show Monkey Toast and guests with Austentatious and Grand Theft Impro. 

“A slick, hilarious sketch show… Genius.” The Sunday Times

“Highly inventive… one of the most exciting, gloriously funny acts out there.” Time Out



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
