“One of stand-up’s premier goons, heroically committed to nonsense, knight errant of the dizzy non-sequitur.” The Guardian
“Chaos has rarely been so finely constructed and this much fun.” The Times
“Imagine if Harry Potter was a Canadian non-wizard who writes very funny jokes with his big hands, that’s Tony Law.” Sean Lock
“I can’t recommend this show highly enough. Tremendous comedy. Really great.” Tony Law
Sindhu Vee is most likely the tallest Indian woman you’ll ever meet. The daughter of Indian parents, a London-based mother, and bearer of half a PhD, it is rumoured but unverified, that Sindhu practised the dark arts of investment banking before making her parents proud by becoming a stand-up. She devotes all the time she has left over from raising her 3 children (and a bizarrely gigantic labrador) to comedy and suffering facial peels.
Since bursting onto the UK stand-up comedy scene a few years ago she has charmed and beguiled audiences with her sharp tongue, accurate home truths and totally unique life experience. It’s no surprise then that she was nominated for a Best Newcomer gong at the Edinburgh Fringe last year, nor that she’s popping up all over our TV screens on iconic shows such as Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News For You and QI. She might still be new to stand-up, but she has the savvy and rootedness of a much-loved veteran. It’s no surprise that she’s already selling out her debut national tour, so best catch her at our wee gaff before she’s selling out huge theatres!
"Acerbic perspective and unapologetic delivery of less politically correct home truths." The List
"Effortlessly manages to be simultaneously waspish yet instantly very likeable." Chortle
Originally from New York and a product of the Japanese stand-up comedy scene (nope, we didn't realise it had one either), Spring is an punky, opinionated and idiosyncratic comic who has been tearing it up at global festivals for years.
"She's fucking funny. You'd be hard pressed to find someone more delightful and life affirming than Spring Day. Oh and she's not drunk, that's her real walk." Brendon Burns
"Day's best material is when discussing her cerebal palsy. She's got just the right amount of irreverance and quite expertly makes the audience feel comfortable about laughing at it." The Skinny

"Smart, hip comedian – not to be missed." The List
AND YOUR RESIDENT HOST:
BEN VAN DER VELDE
Freshly returned from the Edinburgh Festival, Ben is ready to take the helm at Good Ship once more and steer it through the vast ocean of comedy we have on offer. One of the quickest wits around and a much-loved compere, he always brings a jam-packed back of nonsense, silliness and wisecracks to every gig he hosts.
"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
