Self styled ‘International Word Clown Gordon Southern divides his time between the UK and, as soon as it starts to get a bit nippy, Australia, where he has quite a following.  If that’s already making you a tiny bit jealous then just wait to hear how he has wowed the crowds in Kuala Lumpur, Bratislava and Jakarta. Gordon even headlined Serbia’s first ever comedy festival and has been booked twice for football governing body UEFA in Switzerland (Technically, shouldn’t that count as a sending off?) and was the voice of the parrot in the Admiral insurance advert.  Assuming you haven’t seen comedy in any of the above countries and you’re still trying to place the face then chances are it will be the world famous Comedy Store on Leicester Square where he regularly appears.

Paul Thorne is a topical comedian, whose finely crafted material and quirky songs have made him one of the UK’s most sought-after stand-up talents. A wonderfully assured performer, Paul’s provocative topical gags; spontaneous wit, and surreal comedy songs have earned him a reputation as a quality live performer. A truly world class act, Paul has performed in Dubai, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, China, Japan and Australia and many places in between.

“A sharp and fast-paced comedian with just the right mix of edgy political incorrectness”  Toronto Sun

Justin Moorhouse shouldn’t need any introduction to Congleton comedy fans. Whether you’ve seen him here, on tour, at The Comedy Store, London, on QI, Coronation Street, Celebrity Mastermind, Live At The Apollo, Dave’s One Night Stand or even Phoenix Nights (ask your mum), you’ll know why he is constantly in demand as one of the UK’s funniest performers. Peerless performance skills backed by an arsenal of carefully crafted routines and tightly written gags make Justin a surefire success in front of any audience as thousands of fans will gladly testify.
