This hugely talented new comer has already established a remarkable reputation among fellow comics and audiences as a gifted word-smith with a masterful sense of timing and delivery. Clint has supported fellow Welsh comedians Rhod Gilbert and Steve Williams on tour, starred in BBC Wales comedy Those That Can’t, and has appeared on The Rhod Gilbert Show. As compere, Clint’s relaxed and conversational stage presence always ensures a positive reaction from the audience. ‘Clint Edwards was, predictably, the star’ – South Wales Echo


For over a decade Dan’s twisted logic has been gladdening Stand-Up Comedy audiences across the UK and Ireland. He’s also performed his accessible but childish surrealism in front of chubby sweating ex-pats in the Middle East and Singapore, and had his grammar rectified by politer crowds in Germany and Holland. He’s been on BBC 2’s Brain Candy, Channel 5 at The Store, The Channel 5 Comedy Zone, the Radio 2 Stand Up Show and 28 acts in 28 minutes on Radio 4. “Skilful and surreal” – The Scotsman. “Original and Inventive”The Times.


One of comedy’s heavy hitters, Chris Brooker’s infectious energy and enthusiasm sweeps through a room like an irresistible force. Chris’ combination of hilarious, original material and inspired improvisation means that you will never see the same routine twice. Immensely likeable, there’s no doubting his ability to win over any crowd and drag them along for the ride.

“Very funny, very quick… On the spot humour.” BBC

“He tickled the collective funny bone of the audience in no time flat” Graham Williams, South Wales Evening Post

“But love, what are you going to do for money?” Lynne Bubbins, Mother.
