    Christian Reilly is one of the country's top headline comedians and he's garnered a reputation for barnstorming performances which leaves audiences on a laugh packed high. As former integral part of the Perrier award-winning show Otis Lee Crenshaw and the Black Liars, with comic/songster Rich Hall, Christian's career has taken him around the world three times. On his way, he received accolades at international festivals and numerous network TV credits in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Britain. Now a solo stand-up performer and playing all the major comedy venues in his own right, Christian uses his dynamic guitar and vocal skills to target histrionic rock bands, musical theatre and morose indie musicians. He recently wrote and performed for 'That Was Then This Is Now' (BBC Radio 2) as musical counterpart to Richard Herring and Emma Kennedy, as well as giving his improvisation skills an outing on Radio 2's 'Jammin'.

    Other notable highlights he's enjoyed that many a top comedian would be jealous of include: Appearing on stage with Seinfeld star Michael Richards and getting on NBC's 'Late Night with Conan O' Brien' (one of the biggest TV shows in the USA). He's also had his own BBC radio show with the hugely-talented and multi-award winning TV comedian Richard Herring: 'That Was Then, This Is Now' and they're both widely regarded as an exciting and reliable pair of comedic hands to get any crowd rolling around with laughter. "His stand up is witty and heaving with punchlines..." Chortle "If you're a fan of Bill Bailey or Rich Hall, you're a Christian Reilly fan already" The Guardian "Bill Bailey watch out, there's a new kid on the block!" ONE4REVIEW.COM

    Tez Ilyas started performing comedy in 2010 - hitting the ground running he found himself in no less than eight competition finals, including the prestigious BBC New Comedy Award and Leicester Mercury New Comedian of the Year. He achieved phenomenal success with his debut stand up show TEZ Talks, which was met with packed out audiences and huge critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which he performed at in 2013. A totally sold-out run at the Soho Theatre followed, with additional dates at the prestigious Southbank Centre. Such was the success of TEZ Talks, it was adapted into a series for BBC Radio 4. Tez followed this up with his sophomore show, Made in Britain. A critical and commercial success, he totally sold-out the Edinburgh Fringe run, including extra dates, and received rave reviews and is now embarking on his first national tour in 2017 Tez has appeared on Live From the BBC (BBC Two), Man Like Mobeen (BBC Three), Virtually Famous (E4), The Now Show (BBC Radio 4), @elevenish (ITV2) and The Funny Thing About? (Channel 5) as well as writing and starring in his own scripted comedy shorts for BBC Three, BBC iPlayer and Sky Arts. "Blackburn-born Ilyas has a slickness more reminiscent of US comics, and the gags to back it up, though his most prized asset could yet be his bold, subversive streak" The Guardian

    Hull comedian Jack Gleadow was previously named International Young Magician in 2013 but gave up magic to concentrate on stand-up. The multi-talented performer has since also been named Hull Comedian of the Year and Hilarity Bites New Comedian of the Year. Gleadow has won the Amused Moose National New Comic Award in Edinburgh and the New Comedian Of the Year Final at the Great Yorkshire Fringe. "He looks like a comedian and sounds like a comedian" Buzz Comedy "His energy is infectious" Chortle "Star potential...the sky is the limit" Evening Standard 'echoes of Norman Wisdom' BBC Humberside 'Cheeky Humour' York Press 'Ingenious Material' Stand Comedy Club Nominated Leicester Mercury Comedian 2018 (February Final) Winner Amused Moose National New Comic 2017 Great Yorkshire Fringe Comedian of the Year 2017 Hull Comedian of The Year 2016 Comedy Cellar Comedian of The Year 2016 Hilarity Bites New Act of The Year 2014

    Damion Larkin will often improvise his entire set to hilarious effect. There are no genuine comparisons to this man. He is a versatile and creative comedian who always leaves audiences wanting more. "Industrious in rotating his material?which is warmly and intelligently told" Chortle "One of the country's top new acts" BBC (this was years ago so now he's just one of the country's comedians! haha) All line ups are subject to change, but don't worry, we'll only replace them with someone just as funny!
