Winner BBC New Comedy Award 2001.
British Comedy Award winner Bill has enjoyed success on the live stage for many years. In 2001 he took his show Bewilderness to New York for an eight week run at the Westbeth Theatre. The New York Times wrote of him, "Bill is an unalloyed pleasure, a treat for the funny bone, the brain and the ear" and The Telegraph pronounced him "a hobbit with a wicked sense of humour". In 2004 he performed his show Part Troll at over fifty venues around the UK, culminating in an extended run at London's Wyndhams Theatre. In 2007 he embarked on a sold-out UK arena tour with his audio-visual, comedic extravaganza, Tinselworm. He took the show down under during the summer of 2008, touring Australia and New Zealand, before returning to London in December 2008 for a ten week run of the show at The Gielgud Theatre. The summer of 2009 saw Bill tour the UK once again with his live show, Bill Bailey Live. Last autumn, following his performances at London's Royal Albert Hall and the resulting critically acclaimed BBC2 television broadcast, Bill enjoyed a very successful UK tour of his musical comedy extravaganza, Bill Bailey's Remarkable Guide to the Orchestra. Performing alongside some of the UK's finest orchestras, the show provided fans with the opportunity to see Bill's surreal comic and musical imagination at its best and was described by The Telegraph as "a glorious achievement," The Guardian as "sublime hilarity" and Stephen Fry as "wonderfully enjoyable... like driving a Rolls-Royce off-road."

He has previously appeared on 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), Show and Tell (E4), Comedy Rocks (ITV1) and Russell Howard's Good News (BBC3), and is soon to be seen on Celebrity Juice (ITV2), Argumental (Dave) and Richard Bacon's Beer and Pizza Club (ITV4).
1995 Perrier Award winner. Jenny's brash and bawdy stand-up routines have earned her the reputation of being one of Britain's leading female comics.
Perrier nominee 2002.
Jimmy's been described as 'the hardest working man in comedy'. Which, let's face facts, is not that impressive. It's like being the 'Tallest Dwarf' or the 'Healthiest Glaswegian'. Really not that big a deal. Funny Business is Jimmy's brand new stand up show. Come for the witty and incisive musings on the human condition; stay for the dirty jokes. Running Time: Approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes (including 1 interval)
As seen on BBC's Mock the Week and other shows.
Pop-culture obsessed Canadian comedian Katherine Ryan received death threats following her appearance on BBC2's Mock The Week last year. Thankfully, she survived the episode and is ready for her second UK stand-up tour. Expect "warped wit, striking presence, killer lines and calm confidence" (Scotsman) from the "assured and impertinent" (Telegraph) performer. For ages 16+. Running time: approx. 60mins
Lucy Porter is one of the UK's best loved live stand-up comedians. Her TV appearances include Mock the Week, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Have I Got News For You. She is a firm favourite on BBC Radio 4 and has toured internationally to places such as Cape Town, Las Vegas and Hong Kong.
Finding modern life a bit difficult? Maybe you were born in the wrong era? In this show Lucy tries to find her rightful place in history. She ponders whether she'd rather be a bewhiskered Victorian explorer, a 1920s Hollywood starlet or Hatshepsut the Egyptian pharaoh.
Milton Jones is renowned for his string of surreal and unusual one-liners. On stage, hair gelled in 360 different directions, clothes half-spaceman, half '70s Bhs, he was Perrier Finalist of 1997 and Best Newcomer in 1996. His delivery is part weirdo, part childish, part punch drunk.
One of the country's best-loved and most popular comedians, and the star of ITV's Take Me Out.
"Amongst many other things, I'll be sharing several stories about becoming a first time Dad and parenthood."
In just over a decade since he began performing, Reginald D Hunter has become one of the UK Comedy industry's best-known and most distinctive performers. His work is often brutally honest, frequently controversial but always meticulously measured and thought out. He is one of the few performers to have been nominated for the highly coveted main Perrier Award in three consecutive years and has become a well-known face on primetime television shows such as Live At The Apollo and QI and is a frequent guest on Have I Got News For You.
Since winning the 2008 if.comedy Best Newcomer Award for her debut solo show Sarah Millican's Not Nice at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Sarah is fast on her way to becoming a household name. She has already notched up a number of appearances on top comedy shows including Mock the Week, Michael Mcintyre's Comedy Roadshow, Have I Got News For You, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Live at the Apollo and The Bubble.
In the past when you put Sarah Millican outside, she asked things like: 'Why? Where is the taxi? Do I need a cardie?' and said things like: 'There'll be wasps. I've nothing to sit on. Is that poo? Can we go home?' But things have changed. Now she has outside slippers. She can tell a chaffinch from a tit (hey). But she still can't tell if it's an owl or her husband's asthma.
An internationally acclaimed stand-up comedian, accomplished actor and writer with guest spots on Mock the Week, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow and 8 Out of 10 Cats, Stewart Francis is one multi-talented performer. Stewart has made numerous television appearances. He's a regular guest on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, he is the host of trivia game show You Bet Your Ass, and in Britain, his TV appearances include The Comedy Store, Live At Jongleurs and The Big Stage.
Stewart has devoted this show to his father. So dad - if you're up there? As for having kids himself he's decided he doesn't want any... anyone who wants some let him know and he'll drop them off. Oh he's just kidding of course, he has a beautiful daughter who he named after his mum, and in fact passive aggressive psycho turns five tomorrow. On an unrelated matter, Stewart likes what mechanics wear... overall.
There are more punchlines in a Tim Vine show than any other you'll have seen. Fact. It's wonderfully silly and inane - but incredibly funny.
The punslinger returns with new jokes, silly songs and twitchy dancing. Joke, joke, joke. Prop, prop, prop. Song, song, song. (Sorry, the laptop's jammed). It's time to put the satire on hold and watch a grown man act the goat. Come along and enjoy the nonsense. Warning: This show will contain wobbly props, one reference to a panda and a song about getting water in your ear after swimming. Running time: 1hr. Age 12+
