A core member of The Cutting Edge team at London’s Comedy Store, Alistair Barrie has made numerous radio, television, corporate and festival appearances across the globe. Alistair has taken seven solo shows to the Edinburgh Festival – his 2012 show ‘Urban Fogey’ and 2015 show ‘No More Stage Three’ were both runner up for best show at the Edinburgh Fringe in the Amused Moose Laughter Awards. No More Stage Three, which told the tale of his wife’s breast cancer, was invited to the 2016 Perth Festival in Australia before a European tour and dates at London’s prestigious Soho Theatre. He also appeared in the hit plays ‘Breaker Morant’ with Adam Hills and ‘Coalition‘ with Phil Jupitus, .

Rob Rouse‘s career has seen him encompass pretty much everything from presenting Channel 4’s The Friday Night Project, to appearing the West End to teaching geography. We would like to point out that this isn’t in chronological order. Rob’s a one man comedy whirlwind who drags the audience into his craftily spun tall tales with bucketfuls of manic energy, first class stage craft, eerily convincing characterisations and a barrage of hilarious one liners.

Justin Moorhouse shouldn’t need any introduction to Bury’s 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.
