The Artists making it happen...
- Erich McElroy (Emcee): Eric is a regular on television and radio, where he talks comedy and politics on shows such as BBC Breakfast, Newsnight, Sky News, Five News and programs like BBC 5 Live, Love Sport Radio and TalkRadio. He is the creator and co-host of the Pod To Be An American podcast and his most recent Edinburgh Festival Fringe show, (US) Electile Dysfunction and Top Trumps, which received numerous four and five-star reviews.
- Rich Hall: Rich's critically acclaimed grouchy, deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and the king of rapid-fire wit. The award-winning Montana native is renowned for his expertly crafted tirades and quick fire banter with audiences. This is a comedian who’s plain spoken growling indignation and acerbic observations have an unerring talent for hitting his targets with precision every time, leaving his audience hanging on every word winning him fans all over the globe. Hall has been described as a transatlantic messenger lampooning each country he visits with his common sense, and he is no less harsh to his homeland. "As close as it gets to a guaranteed good show"- Scotland on Sunday. "Blissfully Funny"- The Guardian.
- Dane Baptiste: Original and provocative, Dane has already being hailed as one of the most exciting acts to break in years. The London born stand up made comedy history in 2014 as the first black British act to be nominated for a Comedy Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. TV credits include hosting Live at the Apollo (BBC Two) and Live from the Comedy Store (Comedy Central), Tonight at the London Palladium (ITV1), Mock the Week (BBC Two), Live from the BBC (BBC Two), 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4) and his own BBC sitcom, Sunny D. In 2020 he will launch his brand new show The Chocolate Chip. "A comical genius"- Edinburgh Festivals Magazine. "Masterfully crafted"- The Herald.
- Robyn Perkins: Since 2011, American comedian Robyn Perkins has been combining her scientific background with her ridiculous life stories. Her "exceptionaly charismatic" (Voice Magazine) style has also allowed her to delve into more sensitive topics. She regularly hosts various clubs across London including Angel Comedy, Top Secret Comedy Club and Laugh Train Home. "Sharp, insightful, touching,but above all really, really funny."- Three Weeks. "This is a window into her life delivered with refreshing directness and plenty of feisty humor."- Fringe Review.
