ADAM HESS

EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARD BEST NEWCOMER 2015: NOMINEE

Starting his stand-up career in 2011, Adam showed himself to be one of the most exciting new acts in the country, winning the Chortle Student Comedy Award and taking a runner-up place in Leicester Square Theatre New Act of the Year award that same year. He originally became known for his surreal one-liners however later went on to prove himself as an accomplished story-teller and sketch-writer. He was later nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer and Leicester Mercury New Act Of The Year.

A prolific writer; Adam has also become widely known for his unique brand of comedy on Twitter and in the last two years has accrued tens of thousands of followers from the jokes he posts there alone. The BBC even filmed a selection of his tweets as sketches starring him as one of their ‘Feed My Funny’ videos. He has also written for such TV regulars as Seann Walsh and Chris Ramsey.

In 2013 a tweet by Adam was voted funniest of the year by The Telegraph.

"For good quality gags per minute, there is no better comedian." ★★★★The Independent

"Relentlessly entertaining, full of beautiful imagery." ★★★★Time Out

“Bangs out lines quicker than Scarface.” Evening Standard

★★★★ The List ★★★★ Fest

“Exquisitely written, punchline-driven material without cliché. It’s hard to imagine a subject he couldn’t come up with an original and literate joke about.” Chortle

TOM HOUGHTON

Comedian, musician and presenter, Tom Houghton is a natural comic talent. A former member of improv comedy group The Noise Next Door, Tom was raised amongst the height of the British Upper Class, he attended boarding school from 6 years old, his father is the ex-professional head of the entire UK Armed forces and he currently resides in The Tower of London… so naturally, a career in comedy beckoned! Funny and charming, with roguish tales and hilarious songs, Tom Houghton is star on the rise.  Most recently, Tom was named a finalist in the 2017 Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Awards and went on to take his eagerly awaited debut solo hour, ‘Class Half Empty’ to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this August, selling out the entire run within in the first week and adding extra shows due to popular demand.

“This unexpected tour de force warrants a 21-gun salute.”  ★★★★ Daily Telegraph

“A hefty package of entertainment.” Chortle

ALISON THEA-SKOT

Alison Thea-Skot is a critically acclaimed actress, comedian, writer and improviser. Nominated for Best Actress at The 2014 British Independent Film Festival for her role in the short film ‘Desire’, Alison has worked extensively from Shakespeare’s Globe to Basil Brush for the BBC. She recently starred in So On & So Forth’s four part sketch show series for BBC Radio 4 & The Comedy Unit.  As an improviser she currently guests with Chortle award winners Austentatious: The Improvised Jane Austen Novel. She is also a member of 5 star improv super group The Free Association.

As a solo character comedian she launched on to the circuit and within a year was a Finalist in both The Funny’s Funny and Funny Women Competitions. She has since taken two solo character comedy shows to The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where she received raved reviews, was selected as part of The Telegraph’s Best of the Fringe, Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of the Fringe and featured on The BBC Culture Show.

“A satisfyingly dark writer and wildly versatile performer…a terrific new comic creation.” The Telegraph

“A delightfully batty character affair.” The List

“Mayhem and mischief in this hour of colourful alter egos.” Metro

PAUL SWEENEY

Paul Sweeney is a comedian with a sharp, self-deprecating style, when combined with his own eclectic taste and unique sensibility, is in turn both entertaining and beguiling, infinitely charming.

“Intriguing and memorable.” Chortle

AND YOUR RESIDENT HOST:

BEN VAN DER VELDE

Standing a statutesque 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 Kilburn.  He has his sights set on becoming the challenger for the Camden title in 2018.

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

“The perfect comedy club host – he is a master of audience interaction. The audience weren’t just warmed up, but pretty hysterical even before the first act of the night hit the stage.” Huffington Post
