LINE UP for 1st April:

MC Dan Jones

Dan won the Amused Moose National Breakthrough Comedian of the Year 2019 and is a rising star on the UK circuit. He brings rooms to life with his deadpan humour and low energy anecdotes and is “definitely one to watch” – Rhod Gilbert.

“Pithy, snarky & funny!” – Chortle

“A talented little bastard” – Glass Eye

“Dan is a great writer and I look forward to watching his star rise” – Tez Ilyas

“Clever, well-structured & delivered”- Fringe Review

Martin Wratten

Martin, a former ice cream seller from Eastbourne, highlights the perils of selling 99s from a van and delves into his daily struggles to meet society’s expectations of a fully-grown adult man.

Awards include: Winner of South Coast Comedian of the Year 2017 and Winner of Hastings Fringe newcomer of the year 2017.

Martin was also a Nominee for Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2018 and writer and performer for Triple Chortle award winning GOAT Comedy (Chortle Best club night in the South 2018, 2019 ,2020).

“I was blown away by Martin the first time I saw him, as I have been every time since. Great material and a really likeable guy. If I had a comedy club, I wouldn’t hesitate to book him.” Paul McCaffrey

Katherine Kenway

Katherine Kenway is a regular on the comedy circuit, delighting audiences with her jokes on being a lazy mum.  She has a sardonic view on life and is like your slightly scary straight-talking best friend, but with punchlines: “…an acerbic wit with a sideways view of motherhood”, (Funny Women).

Early in 2020 Katherine was a finalist in the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year, as well as being selected to take part in the AAA showcase at the Gilded Balloon for the whole run of the Edinburgh Fringe 2020 (postponed until 2022).

“…. a comedian so deadpan she makes Jack Dee look like Timmy Mallett.” Steve Bennett, Chortle.

Tadiwa Mahlunge

Billed as one of the country’s top new comedy acts” by The York Press, Tadiwa Mahlunge has performed at the Greenman, Brighton Comedy Garden, and Greenwich Comedy Festivals – alongside the biggest names in comedy – providing tour support for Kiri Pritchard-McLain, and TV warm up for Desiree Birch’s Amazon Prime special.

As seen on BBC 1, BBC 2, BBC Sesh, Dave, Comedy Central, Comic Relief and heard on BBC Radio Wales, BBC Sounds and Union Jack Radio – at 24 years of age Tadiwa Mahlunge has quickly established himself as one of comedy’s hottest prospects in years.


“He is ludicrously hard working so when you pair that with his natural talent it means every time you see him he’s twice the comic he was – which was exceptional before” – Kiri Pritchard-McLean

Will Duggan

A comic who has performed all over the world. You may have seen him on ‘The Russell Howard Hour’ on SkyOne or some pretty unsuccessful BBC3 pilots. Will won the Edinburgh Comedy Award (Panel Prize) in 2014 as part of Funz and Gamez.
