JJ Whitehead’s rangy swagger and fearless, electric wit has charmed audiences around the world. Disarmingly comfortable, JJ delivers unabashedly personal stories and blistering social satire in a unique performance style that can only come from a North American who cut his comedy teeth in Manchester! Now residing in LA, JJ has made numerous TV appearances including Comedy Central’s The Jim Jefferies Show which he also co-wrote.

Powerhouse stand up Connor Burns has been making waves in his native Scotland. Big waves. Waves so big, in fact, he has surfed down to England on them! Named as Best Newcomer in the Scottish Comedy Awards in both 2019 and 2020, Connor’s rapid rise was stalled by lock down meaning he ‘had to drive a f*cking delivery van for nine months’ Hilarious, Scottish-level cynicism and self-deprecation are what set Connor apart and have seen him support Daniel Sloss, Tom Stade, Gary Meikle and Larry Dean on their recent tours.
“Absolutely cracking” The Stand “Highlight of the night!” Chortle ‘Mark him out as one to watch.’ The Scotsman
Winner of the 2021 Scottish Comedian of the Year Award, Paisley’s Liam Farrelly is barely 22, yet his meteoric rise through the comedy ranks has seen him attracting a lot of media and public attention. An already powerful and original new comedic voice, he is clearly destined for big things so catch him working live and up close – while you still can! Liam appeared on BBC’s Live At The Apollo in January 2023
‘A compelling, down-to-earth voice.’ The Scotsman ‘Impressive stuff!‘ Beyond The Joke
The show comes complete with Cumbrian funnyman Percy Savage
