Carl Donnelly has been performing since 2005 and has established himself as one of the UK’s most exciting comics with his conversational silly sense of humour. A regular on TV Carl has appeared on Mock The Week, Russell Howard’s Good News and most recently Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled. Carl hosts his own podcast with Chris Martin which is one of the Guardian Top 10 comedy podcasts.

‘Excellent, fast-rising comic with pacy anecdotal routines’ Sunday Times

Welsh Comedian Kiri Pritchard Mclean has been making something of a name for herself in the short time she’s being performing stand-up comedy and has achieved further success as one fourth of multi-award winning sketch group Gein’s Family Gift shop (in capacity as writer/director)

John Moloney has been a professional comedian for over twenty years – and headlines at all the major Comedy Clubs around the world, including the prestigious London Comedy Store. John has TWICE won ‘Best Live Performer’ at The London Comedy Festival, and was nominated as ‘Best Live Stand-Up’ at The British Comedy Awards.  John Moloney is a world-travelled comedian, who has delighted thousands at Festivals, Theatres, and Clubs.  From Melbourne to Edinburgh, from the prestigious Just For Laughs and Halifax Festivals in Canada to The Liffey Laughs in Dublin – John has been recognized as a true multi-award-winning comic talent.

“One of the best things about watching live comedy is seeing a comedian get his second wind of inspiration.  Sometimes an established comic suddenly finds something extra, and one of these comics is John Moloney.  He’s been a headliner at top clubs like the Comedy Store for years – yet his comedy has acquired more depth, as well as an even sharper edge.  “

William Cook – The Guardian.
