Online viral sensation Louis Burgess has been dubbed the freshest and most exciting musical comedy acts in the UK. Louis may have over 50 million online views but it’s live where he really comes alive. His rip-roaring concoction of singing, rapping, sampling, beat boxing, strumming, looping and more creates a fire hydrant of comedy. Frequently described as “Bill Bailey on Crack” and “The Russell Howard of the Grungecore Folk Scene” he aims to create a new sub-genre within the genre of genre itself.

“Charisma charm and wit… had the crowd in stitches” Teignmouth Post  “Crying with laughter” North Devon Gazette

Ten years since his BBC New Comedy Award win, things have been going rather well for Steve Bugeja ( ‘Boo-Jay_Ah‘ seeing as you asked). His jokes and stories have taken him right around the globe with Melbourne, Australia being a particular hot spot for Bugeja fans.

Steve’s no stranger to the small screen either with appearances including The Russell Howard Hour, Love Island: Aftersun, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central and Zoe Ball on Saturday as well as a couple of appearances on Australian telly. Steve’s humour is very much in demand behind the scenes too, he’s head writer for Iain Stirling’s CelebAbility and co-created and co-wrote the ITV sitcom Buffering.  Fun fact: Steve’s cousin was the prime minster of Malta.

“Bugeja has an eye for original comic detail that’s all his own.” The Guardian  “Plentiful jokes and compelling storytelling” The Scotsman

It’s been a few years since dairy farmer Pete Otway swapped the cow sheds of Cumbria for the comedy clubs of the big, wide world and even hosting a YouTube comedy travelogue with Serbian comedy stars Krusevac Geto.

In fact, Pete has carved himself quite the side hustle in presenting with regular appearances on the Hits Network, Rock FM, Radio City,XS Manchester and BBC Radio 4 Extra. Pete has also performed stand-up on BBC Radio 2 and 4.
