Fearless writing and lighting fast wit make Fern an exceptional comedian, one who has been building up a remarkable body of work over the past few years.   Prior to entering comedy Fern was a Guardian award-nominated journalist and has also spoken about topical issues on Radio’s 4’s The Today Programme.  She is similarly uncompromising in her material, slaughtering holy cows with little care for audience sensibilities or insufferable fools.  Few acts have the scalpel-like way with an image or analogy as Fern, and it's little wonder that she's become a regular on BBC Radio 4's 'The Now Show', as well as appearing on '8 Out of 10 Cats', 'Live at The Comedy Store' and 'Russell Howard's Stand-up Central'.

"Appealingly acidic… a great comic sensibility with moments of sparkling verve." The Guardian

"Solid gold material on top of a beautifully brutal turn of phrase." Fest

"Bold, whip-smart and unabashedly honest” ★★★★ The Herald


Co-host of The Bugle Podcast

Alice is one of the sharpest-tongued rising stars in global comedy.  Already an established voice in her native Australia she has come to greater prominence in the UK as one of the new generation of comics entrusted to take up the reins of John Oliver's co-presenter seat.  Her shows have played to packed out houses in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide, New Zealand, London and the Edinburgh Fringe, whilst she has also appeared on Radio 4 and given her own very funny and touching Ted Talk.

“There’s something almost literary about Alice Fraser’s incisive, dextrous hour of compelling storytelling...she could give Daniel Kitson a run for his money." Chortle

“Her stand-up is poignant and gut-punchingly funny...Alice Fraser’s a total star in her own right." ★★★★★ The Herald Sun


Sisters are an award nominated, critically acclaimed new sketch act. After reaching the final of the Leicester Square Theatre Sketch-Off in 2016, their debut show 'White Noise' had a sellout run in the Pleasance Courtyard at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe and is being taken to the Soho Theatre in April 2018.

"Wickedly dark...a genuinely exciting new voice in sketch comedy." ★★★★ The Telegraph 

"Given the double-act genre a real shot in the arm." ★★★★ The List 


Harriet Braine is a musical comedian, who dedicates a remarkably large portion of her oeuvre to Art History.

After winning Best Newcomer at the 2016 Musical Comedy Awards, she started gigging around London and the South East and has played at venues as diverse as Up The Creek, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Brighton Komedia, and that building that looks like a cheese grater. She reached the final of Gilded Balloon’s So You Think You’re Funny? competition, and was crowned the winner of the Funny Women Stage Award 2016.

"If you like musical comedy with a twist Harriet will have you howling.” Metro


Another fresh, excellent new comic who is part of Soho Theatre's Young Comedy Company.  Whilst still young and new to comedy Jake is already an accomplished and engaging storyteller.



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

“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
