A highly regarded comedian who is a regular fixture at the UK's most esteemed comedy clubs. With his impeccable timing and sharp wit, he consistently delivers uproarious performances.
John was one of the founding team members as a writer of The Big Breakfast on C4 back in the day. He has spent the last 3 decades playing the biggest gigs in the UK, writing of the biggest comics in the UK and his appetite to make people laugh is stronger now than it has ever been.
John is one of the very best MC’s in the business.

Nick Clarke, a comedic force to be reckoned with, has been taking the comedy scene by storm with his razor-sharp wit and infectious charm. Nick’s journey into the world of comedy was marked by a passion for laughter and an unwavering dedication to his craft.
His unique blend of observational humour, clever wordplay, and relatable anecdotes quickly won over audiences and earned him a loyal following.
Over the years, Nick has graced the stages of some of the most prestigious comedy clubs and festivals, leaving audiences in stitches wherever he goes. He has shared the spotlight with renowned comedians and earned accolades for his exceptional performances.
His down-to-earth nature and approachability have made him a beloved figure in the comedy community.

Ant Dewson is a comedian, mediocre piano player and singer of silly songs. Many of which are rude. He’s a regular performer at the UK’s best comedy clubs including Comedy Hotspot, Up The Creek, The Stand, Funhouse Comedy, Top Secret, Angel Comedy, Out of Bounds, The Stand Up Club… to name but a few.
Ant has shared the stage with some of the country’s finest comedians including Michael McIntyre, Micky Flanagan and Lee Mack. He’s also performed with some shockers, all of whom he is too polite to mention here.
Ant has written comedy for BBC Radio 4 and Sky TV, and commercials for many household brands. He performs on BBC Radio London and is the co-host of Carpet Martin’s Comedy Market on Riverside Radio.

Mike Gunn’s history is as interesting and entertaining as his comedy. A misspent youth and a series of grim jobs cultivated his cynical outlook on life and a perverse desire led him to the world of stand-up. A self-confessed pessimist, he describes himself as “not a natural choice for a career in laughter”. He has a rare ability to walk close to the line of what audiences find acceptable and yet still remain likable and funny. His reputation for being a bit unfriendly, a touch dark and even morose is really not true. In real life he’s loving, warm and philanthropic. Just a bit misunderstood.
Early in his career Mike was supporting the likes of Jo Brand and Alan Davies and recently supported Lee Mack on his huge UK tour. He now headlines at all the top comedy venues in the UK and is rapidly reaching cult status on the circuit. He has performed internationally, taking his talent to Hong Kong, Ireland, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, New Zealand, and Saudi Arabia and to Australia at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, where he completed a five-week sell-out season.
Television appearances include Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC1), Celebrity Deal or no Deal (CH 4), Harry Hill’s TV Burp (ITV), Al Murray’s sitcom ‘Time Gentlemen Please’ (Sky), Soccer AM (Sky 1), The Comedy Store (Comedy Central), Live At Jongleurs (CH5), and The Gas (CH4). He is a regular on the Sky Poker channel and has also been a contributor for The Guardian. He has written for Time Out, The List, The 11 O’clock Show (CH4) and Match of The Day Magazine. even though he hates football.
