Comedian, author, columnist, satirist, professional troublemaker, multimedia artist, recreational sadist and anarchic improviser, John is an astonishing 21st century renaissance man.  He has toured the world with his 1980s text-based RPG phenomenon 'The Dark Room' and blown the bloody doors of most clubs with his super-charged whirlwind act.

“A manic and quick-witted revelation… if you only see one Perth-born set this year, make it John Robertson.” The Scotsman

“Stylish, alternative, funny.” Chortle

“Brilliant, bemusing and bloodthirsty.” Metro


A relative newcomer to the UK, Matt is a slacker comic who remembered to pay attention at school, a super-cool tatooed rocker with a nerdy streak running all the way through him.  Most importantly, he's originally and superbly funny.

"An intellectual ‘Fonze’...extremely laid back and relaxed with the audience, seamlessly having banter and keeping his cool." Keeping Up With NZ


Lazy Susan are the creation of Celeste Dring and Freya Parker, two tremendously talented sketch performers.  Their tender, warmly-observed and very funny shows earned them a Best Newcomer nod at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival and they have since toured Australia and appeared on BBC 3 and BBC Radio 4.

"Tender and ridiculous." The Guardian 

"A high gag rate.  Deft, subtle performances.  Lazy Susan nail each character so skillfully." Time Out


Chelsea is a born and bred Alaskan living in Europe for over two years. She travelled for over a year of that to 30 countries in Europe and the middle east as a street performer. Along the way she was picked up by the media in Bosnia, Croatia, Kosovo, and their affiliates across the world for her operatic street show. She lives in London now, splitting her time between busking, stand up comedy, and folk music.


Will is the sort of hard-working comic and innovator that has pulled himself up by his bootlaces with a gritty mixture of graft, originality and a dark, dark sense of humour.  As the creator of the Joke Thieves and Sketch Thieves formats he has travelled the world, pitting fellow comics against each other at international comedy festivals.  In the past few years he has followed his dream, moving from the UK on a mission to make it big in the USA.  He's succeeding too, having appeared on Fox's Showtime at the Apollo and being a finalist in NBC's Trial By Laughter.  Mark our words, you're gonna hear about Will being a British success story in America before too long.  

"Punctures an expectation and implies a whole bizarre reality in only twelve words." The Guardian



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
