TONY COWARDS

Tony is a properly old-fashioned comedian in the best possible sense.  Invoking a gentler time of comedians telling jokes you could tell your grandparents, he's wholesome and very funny rapidfire gag merchant with an arsenal full of one-liners.  For laughs-per-minute he's a tough act to beat.

His quick wit has made him a sought after act and compere by comedy clubs and promoters across the UK and even for gigs worldwide. Something of a Twitter sensation, Tony's jokes turn up in all sorts of places, from greetings cards to The Times newspaper, even if you've never heard of him there's a good chance that you'll have laughed at one of his gags.

"The Punosaurus." The List

"The best joke writer around." GQ

MORGAN BERRY

A pet bereavement counsellor, specialising in rabbits who is more than happy to share his vast - and very stupid - experience with anyone suffering an animal-related loss.

"Pythonesque in its whimsy. It is his use of very specific and nonsensical language that is so captivatingly funny, no one could claim to know what he is about to say next, perhaps not even him." Chortle

MO OMAR

Somali-born, Cardiff-raised and London-based, Mo Omar brings in his third culture kid way of thinking. Winner of Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year 2017 and semi-finalist in So You Think You’re Funny and Amused Moose.

He is a fast rising talent with a unique perspective.

"Omar has a winningly irreverent attitude to sacred cows, with a fresh and feisty delivery that gives him a contemporary edge." Chortle

DANNY GARNELL

So You Thing You're Funny? Winner 2018

Professional wrestler turned deft storyteller, Danny is a wildly entertaining and charming newcomer who won the most prestigious new comedy prize at the Edinburgh Fringe this summer.  His honesty, wit and down to earth humour made him a massive hit with judges and audience members alike.

"Littered with keen observations, had the audience hooked." Chortle

JENAN YOUNIS

Jenan is a London based comedian of Iraqi and Palestinian heritage. Her comedy has been described as a slap in the face. Don't sit within arm's reach!

AND YOUR RESIDENT HOST: 

BEN VAN DER VELDE

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
