Vancouver’s Glenn Wool reached these shores in the mid-Nineties and, much to the disdain of lesser comedians, it looks like he’s here to stay. When not at home in his adopted Essex, Wool consistently sells out shows at the world’s biggest comedy festivals and has appeared on numerous TV shows. Topical, engaging, opinionated but never preachy and, of course, downright hysterically funny, Glenn is a surefire hit in front of any audience.

Online viral sensation Louis Burgess has been dubbed the freshest and most exciting musical comedy acts in the UK. Louis may have over 50 million online views but it’s live where he really comes alive. His rip-roaring concoction of singing, rapping, sampling, beat boxing, strumming, looping and more creates a fire hydrant of comedy. Blapping bare mandem in the face with his unique blend of comedy, music and cashews, he can be seen up and down the country on most Wednesdays poncing about in the most disgusting of ways.
Not afraid to break the boundaries of life itself, expect to expect the expectancies of unexpected expectations. Man and beast simultaneously he often frequents comedy clubs, parties and weddings he’s not invited to, whipping out his distinctive radio face at every opportunity.
Frequently described as “Bill Bailey on Crack” and “The Russell Howard of the Grungecore Folk Scene” he aims to create a new sub-genre within the genre of genre itself.
“Oozed charisma charm and wit… had the crowd in stitches…his individuality, cheeky smile and charm made him one to remember” Teignmouth Post
“Audience virtually crying with laughter” North Devon Gazette
Stuart Thomas is the middle act and your compere is Alex Boardman who cut his comedic teeth on the burgeoning Manchester scene with sets at the Frog & Bucket often followed by an all nighter at The Hacienda!
Family life may have tempered the inner wild child but it’s certainly added to both the maturity and the relatability of his stand up. A gifted gag smith, Alex writes for a lot of big names and TV shows including John Bishop, A Question Of Sport and many we’re not allowed to say!
