After a career in health and social care, Angela Barnes took the plunge and embarked on her life-long dream to be a comedian. Within a couple of years she had won the 2011 BBC New Comedy Award and became a finalist at the 2011 Latitude Festival New Act of the Year competition.
Since 2011, Angela and her witty worldview have been catapulted onto numerous radio and television shows including appearances on BBC One’s Mock The Week, Love At The Apollo and BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz. In 2017 she took over the prestigious role as host of BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Newsjack. She is now about to host her 4th and final series of the show.
Angela had a series commissioned based on her debut Edinburgh show You Can’t Take It With You which saw her write and perform four 30 minute episodes for BBC Radio 4.
‘She's just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic’
‘Angela Barnes is the best mainstream female comedian I’ve seen since Sarah Millican... I can't be any clearer than that can I?’

Phil Jerrod began his stand-up career underneath an Angus Steakhouse in 2012. Since then he has failed his PhD, walked out of his job in publishing and been entertaining audiences up and down the country with his elegant rants on the often unfathomable problems of modern life.
Phil was awarded Best Festival Debut at Leicester Comedy Festival 2015; Phil has had three successful Edinburgh shows (Neanderthal 2015, Hypocrite 2016 and Submerged 2017). Phil supported Romesh Ranganathan on his mammoth UK tour in 2016 and heads out on the road supporting Angela Barnes on tour this year.
‘A comic whose instinctive mastery of his form immediately marks him out as one to watch’
‘The most original new comedian I’ve seen in ages’’
‘Made me genuinely laugh out loud’
The Brighton Argus
Elliot Steel is a must-see comic name to watch out for.
Elliot’s hilarious and honest routines are gritty real-life tales of growing up on a South London council estate – all delivered in his refreshingly individual style with a confidence and stage presence beyond his years.
Following his successful Edinburgh shows in 2016 and 2017 Elliot appeared on Comedy Central’s Live from the Comedy Store as well as Roast Battle which saw Elliot and his dad Mark Steel go head-to-head to roast each other with the most brutal jokes imaginable.
Marlon Davis is a bright young comedian, improviser and actor whose recent TV appearances include BBC’s Live At The Apollo and Comedy Central’s Comedy Store Live.
Marlon has supported Kevin Bridges, Michael McIntyre and Alan Carr on tour and is performing at clubs, arts centres and theatres all over the UK.
His act is inspired from his upbringing, exploring urban Britain and tackling its social issues with skillful characterisations.
‘Bursts on to the stage like a breath of fresh air, with impish grin, boyish enthusiasm and an effortlessly open, confident style’
