Paul Kerensa has established himself as one of British comedy's leading talents, both as a writer and a comedian. He has, as a ginger man, battled both prejudice and apathy, and emerged to win ITV's 'Take The Mike' stand-up competition in 2002. In the same year, he appeared in four new act finals at the Edinburgh Festival, including the televised BBC New Comedy Awards. He has since become a regular at the UK's biggest venues, and a writer for various sitcoms, including BBC hits Miranda and Not Going Out, as well as TV sketch shows such as Dead Ringers, ITV's CGI UK and BBC3's The Wrong Door, also for The News Quiz, The Now Show, and countless others.

Irishman Andrew Ryan made his comedy circuit debut in 2008 when he spontaneously entered an open mic contest. Fast forward to 2015 and he is now one of the most exciting talents in recent years; in demand as an act and an MC at the biggest comedy clubs across the UK & Ireland.
Andrew’s quintessentially Irish storytelling abilities and cheeky, friendly demeanour make him a natural observational stand up. He performed his debut hour show ‘Ryanopoly’ at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2012, receiving rave reviews (‘Illuminating debut ★★★★’ – The Metro). In 2014 he returned with his latest show ‘The Life of Ryan’ playing to packed out rooms (‘Going to be a huge star ★★★★’ – Timeout). In 2015 he will be at the Edinburgh Festival with his latest show ‘Perfectly Inadequate’.
He has performed stand-up on BBC3’s Russell Howard’s Good News, Best of the Edinburgh Festival Live on BBC3 & Live at The Comedy Store for Comedy Central. Alex Zane’s ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ for London Live.
