Justin Moorhouse - Edinburgh Festival Preview Show
'Brimming with confidence, Moorhouse exudes a likeable energy that could raise the dead …His affable character has a certain old-fashioned charm, as his is the sort of personality which you instinctively trust to make you laugh - and he doesn't disappoint…Moorhouse entertainingly recounts his tales and well-made observations… impressive indeed' - Chortle
Described by Jimmy Carr as 'easily my favourite comedian', Justin has a stack of TV credits including playing Young Kenny with the tiger striped face on ‘Phoenix Nights’, ‘Live At The Apollo’, ‘8 Out of 10 Cats',  'Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow', 'Dave's One Night Stand', 'Coronation Street', ‘The Grumpy Guides’, ‘Shameless’ and ‘The World Stands Up’ amongst others as well as a role in the Ken Loach film 'Looking For Eric'. His own Radio 4 show 'Everyone Quite Likes Justin' is critically acclaimed and into a second series and he is a Sony Award nominated radio presenter in his own right and a staple of Radio 5 Live's 'Fighting Talk' and '7 Day Sunday'. Plus he's an Edinburgh Festival favourite with a slew of solo
UK theatre tours under his belt.

Nick Parry
'Stalking the stage in a charcoal suit and delivering finely honed, caustic gags with a panache many a comedy circuit regular would be eager to emulate. We've definitely not heard the last of him' - Huddersfield Examiner

Ribticklers Comedy Award Winner in his first ever gig and a former Crooked Smile Award runner-up, Nick’s undeniable onstage poise and wonderfully dark material is currently blazing a trail though the Northern comedy scene with his impeccable comedic timing.

Jay Hampson
‘A strong, natural performer who's so obviously got both funny bones and the love of the audience’ -  Chortle

Beat the Frog World Series winner, Crooked Smile Award winner and Ten Feet City Comedian of the Year, Jay’s endearing stage presence gives way to sharp observations, playful mockery and rib-tickling imagery.

Nicola James
Nicola is a
Sheffield based comedian who has quite rightly been described as ‘sweetly cynical’ and quite unfairly described as 'a natural psychopath'. If you’ve ever wanted to understand the psychology behind people doing unreasonable things, wearing chintzy patterns or becoming serial killers she’s a must see.
With compelling confidence Nicola's seemingly irrefutable comedic logic and deliciously demonstrative disdain for asinine hipster protocol is a welcome addition to any evening of intelligent stand-up.

Compere - Anthony J Brown
Jongleurs/Metro 'Stand & Deliver' Award winner and BBC New Comedy Award Runner-up he is a regular contributor to Radio 2's 'The Arthur Smith Lectures'.
