BRETT GOLDSTEIN - One of the best stand-ups working today, and as an actor seen in Ricky Gervais' Derek and his own film, Super Bob. "Goldstein is highly charismatic, but wears it with appealing humility – and the way he holds the audience is testament to those talents" Chortle

Brett Goldstein As seen in Ricky Gervais' Derek as well as Drifters, Uncle and Cuckoo, Brett's Edinburgh show Burning Man earned him a string of great reviews and established him as one of the top stand-ups on the circuit. "A fine purveyor of thoughtful, funny, vivid, autobiographical stories" Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard.
A legend of stand-up comedy, seen by many as the finest of his generation. Considering that generation includes Stewart Lee, Richard Herring, Harry Hill and Al Murray that's no mean feat.
Star of his own BBC show Attention Scum, and a mainstay of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Simon Munnery is a comedic pioneer, constantly experimenting with the form of comedy and forever re-inventing himself.

Originally from Nottingham, Sarah Keyworth is fast-becoming a regular on the London circuit and has recently supported Stewart Francis on tour. Her material is a mix of honest anecdotal storytelling about her Midlands upbringing, made surreal with the occasional addition of a silly observation. She delivers sharp lines with a cheeky smile and moments of sudden deadpan that leave the audience wanting more.
