Andrew started his career by making old blokes laugh down the pub. He wrote down the funny stuff he said and now he's taking the comedy bull firmly by the horns. Boasting perfect timing, crisp delivery and spot-on observations, his comedy is derived from his lack of identity. He is white, British, somewhere between middle and working class, and neither northern nor southern. It is however this everyman persona that provides his core appeal. His struggles with, and triumphs over, everyday difficulties are certain to delight any audience.

John has performed across the UK from Falmouth to Edinburgh, as well as sets in Chicago, Denver and New York, from university students to rural village halls, and military bases to gay nightclubs.
Nicky is a stand-up comedian, improviser and sketch performer. Having made her first forays into stand-up comedy as a resident compere at the award-winning Funny Side Comedy clubs, she's now gigging all over the country as an act in her own right. Her impressive stage presence, great comic timing and considerable comedy performance experience are ensuring she's moving quickly through the stand-up comedy ranks, definitely making her one to watch!
