Mark Cram is quite the all-rounder; with both a killer set and strong MCing chops. For the last few years Mark has been plying his comedy trade across the UK. Constantly evolving, usually unpredictable; he is garnering positive reactions everywhere he goes. – “A Masterclass in comedy design” Newbury Weekly News
Kate Martin is ‘brilliantly funny & energetic’ (Angela Barnes) and her ‘confident delivery and slick material’ (Chortle) have quickly established her as one of the most exciting new acts on the circuit. At 6ft 1 and with the longest wingspan in comedy (*probably), Kate’s a naturally engaging, energetic performer with effortlessly tight gags to match. Her unique background in mental health has given her a fresh take on the world, a completely distinctive voice, and fuels her high energy storytelling, whip-smart punchlines and razor-sharp observations of life’s quirks through queer eyes. – ‘Undeniably gifted. Explosive new talent, definitely an act that you will be bragging about seeing early in her career.’NDC
Dane Buckley is the world’s only Irish, Indian, gay comedian…possibly. An award-winning comic & writer, he delivers effortlessly with a cheeky charm & camp mischief. Be it his early years (Irish mammies, Indian grannies, rebel priests) or his career in social care (teenage gangs, delivering a baby, taking 60 pensioners to Pride) audiences across the UK have enjoyed his hilarious & heart-warming anecdotes. Dane has supported Tom Allen, Rosie Jones & My Therapist Ghosted Me on tour, won Beat the Frog World Series & The Comedy Store’s King Gong.- ‘I’m a fan! So good!’ – Joe Lycett , ‘Smashing it!’ – Russell Howard
