Warwickshire’s Josh Pugh had been telling jokes to strangers for less than two years when he was named English Comedian of the Year and ended up briefly touring Australia as a result! Josh’s warm but slightly weird style has won him fans on both sides of the planet ever since and he once wrote a full length show about the time he got stuck in a puffa jacket. For two days.
If you have ever wondered who was behind Twitter’s @GrassrootsCoac5 cult account then you need look no further than Josh. In fact, his spin off book; ‘Grassroots: A Step Dad’s Quest For Silverware’ is now available on Amazon. Surely someone with this level of commitment has a podcast? Loads, mate.
And when he’s not reducing audiences to howls of laughter. podcasting, winning awards, running Twitter or writing books about it, how does Josh wind down? Well, he just plays football for England’s Partially Sighted team and has played in three World Championships! Look. He’s very funny. Promise. Come and see him.
‘Wonderfully off-kilter… Pugh proves that semi-surrealism is alive and well’ The List ‘Ceaselessly impressive’ Joe.co.uk
A regular on BBC One’s Live At The Apollo, Tez Ilyas is also known for Tez Ilyas’ Christmas (Sky Arts), Man Like Mobeen (BBC Three) and has also appeared on everything from The One Show to The News Quiz and, of course, his very own The Tez O’Clock Show on Channel 4. A phenomenally funny comedian who refuses to shy away from trickier subjects yet never forgets that the laughs need to come thick and fast.

“A slickness more reminiscent of US comics, and the gags to back it up” The Guardian
Brennan Reece has appeared on everything from BBC’s Live At The Apollo to E4’s Celeb Coach Trip. Now touring in his own right, his cheeky, chirpy interactive style makes him the perfect compere. And, if you’re a bit ‘confused’ as to where you’ve seen him before it is him on the advert.
