“He’s fast, absurd and very Funny” – Radio Times

‘'No-one can touch Jones when he hits his stride’' - The Guardian

Adam Bloom
Adam Bloom is one of Britain's most inventive comedians.

He has also sold out theatres at festivals in Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland, Wellington & Cape Town.

He has also written three series of ‘The Problem with Adam Bloom’ for BBC Radio 4.


Roger Monkhouse
Roger Monkhouse is a consummate stand-up who employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience. As a seasoned corporate host and TV warm-up he improvises freely with the crowd but is nonetheless distinguished as a comic by the intelligence of his material and his keen eye for a fine phrase, his easy observational style spiked by the signal flares of an accomplished gag writer. In 2016 he was voted Best Compere by fellow comics.

"He is a gifted natural, with the years of experience to know how to handle a crowd, which goes to make him one of the consummate professionals of the stand-up circuit”
Chortle

"His laconic delivery shields an engaging persona and an enquiring mind"
The Guardian
