John Moloney
A consummate professional for over 20 years, John is a master craftsman of intelligent and original stand up. He's always a favourite at The Comedy Store and is one of the most in-demand headline comedians world-wide.

"High quality stuff, sharply observant and carefully constructed. Not a word is unnecessary or out of place, every pause timed to the millisecond... A deeply enjoyable, hilarious evening relaxing in the sure hands of a total professional" ***** Theatre Bath

Alan Francis
Award winning Scottish comedian with a masterful stage craft and countless writing and performing credits for TV, radio and theatre. As seen in Alistair McGowan's Big Impression (BBC). Alan's Radio 4 series Inside Alan Francis has recently aired again.

"Thought provoking, eloquent, entertaining..." - The Scotsman
"Smooth, classy and elegant as a vintage Scotch, a seductive performer" - Chortle

David James
"Taut, meticulous material delivered with highly effective pauses - the sort of king-sized pauses that only men, not boys, ever have the balls to attempt" - London Is Funny
"Great, world-weary composure and an irritable pedantry worthy of Jack Dee" - Chortle

Pauline Eyre
"She instinctively engages with the audience and creates an environment that is welcoming and fun for them and the other performers. A true skill" - Lynne Parker, Founder and Chief Executive, Funny Women Ltd.
"Fabulous, funny and brilliant!" - Fitzroy Club

Pav Rao
Winner of last year's New Act Competition
"Intellectually thoughtful, though never patronising or preachy take on racism, genocide, social attitudes, and history generally, with a beautifully measured and timed delivery, every wry gag hitting its mark with a devastating accuracy that has the audience roaring. Comedy with brains and brawn" - Theatre Bath
