Line up so far*:


BARRY CRYER, O.B.E. is one of Britain's truly great comedy writers and performers. He has contributed to this country's entertainment industry for over 50 years and has written for some of our highest rated shows and for many of our most popular comedians. His wit, life experience and huge sense of the comedic is still enjoyed by millions - on radio, television and theatre performances. He will be will be appearing in this show with comedian and double act partner Ronnie Golden.

RONNIE GOLDEN is all these things: Oscar Nominated Songwriter / Stand-Up Comedian / Sit-down Tragedian / Award Winning Radio Jingle Writer / Guitar Hero / Golden Voiced Angel / Dirtyminded Devil. He even worked with David Bowie.


Bursting on to the London Comedy circuit in 1985, Bob turned the “alternative” establishment on its head with his unique and challenging brand of laddish, irreverent stand-up. His cult and much loved ITV show, ‘In Bed with Me Dinner’ was the template for Harry Hills’ TV Burp. Bob was also the host for ITV’s flagship afternoon show ‘Win, Lose or Draw’. 


Mitch is not only one of the most sought-after acts on the comedy circuit but is widely acknowledged as one of the best writer/performers of comic songs in the country. He was a regular writer and performer on "The Now Show" for BBC Radio 4 and "It's Been a Bad Week" for BBC Radio 2. Three series of his successful Radio 4 show, "Mitch Benn's Crimes Against Music" have been broadcast so far. He also presents "The Mitch Benn Music Show" on BBC Radio 7. 


Cannelloni's zippy, self-deprecating patter and knowing, absurd humour, it turns out to be a full-on pantomime of unadulterated, if unsophisticated, fun from an instantly likeable performer.

Ben has been a stand-up comedian since 1993 and now regularly headlines all the big clubs including the London Comedy Store. His TV credits include "Never Mind The Buzzcocks", "They Think It's All Over" and "Mock The Week". Ben is also has a very famous actor cousin and you don't have to be Sherlock to work out who it is.

"The term circuit legend is overused, but Norris is one of a handful that have been headlining for more than two decades and rarely departs a stage without leaving it torn to shreds in his wake. A master of the craft, this will be ... the most polished stand-up you are likely to see."
GQ Magazine


Steve is an International Award Winning Comedy Juggler, and a truly unique performer who mixes stand-up comedy with an outrageous combination of juggling, balancing and physical tricks. He has earned standing ovations and rave reviews around the world, performing on TV, to countless live audiences, and by special invitation to heads of state and royalty. Truly breathtaking to watch...and hilariously funny.

“Hilarious & Original” The Times


Jamali is one of most promising and exciting acts to hit the circuit in years. With an assured stage presence and considered material that comes from a fresh perspective, he already has the aura of a successful comic well beyond his years. He has appeared on a plethora of TV shows including The John Bishop Show, Live at the Apollo and 8 out of 10 Cats.

"It’s a failing of the comedy industry that there aren’t more voices like Jamali Maddix on the circuit."


Award winning comedian Sally-Anne Hayward combines the things you shouldn't like about your best friend's mum with the sensibilities of Jack the Ripper. An accomplished radio presenter with stage and TV acting credentials ('Absolutely Fabulous' BBC, 'Why the Long Faces' Square Donkey Productions), Sally-Anne's confident persona and quick wit have rapidly made her a much sought-after comedian.

“Sally-Anne Hayward is the funniest female entertainer I have ever seen. She is hilarious and deserves to be a superstar.” NORMAN WISDOM 


Dan Evans’s accessible but childish surrealism has delighted audiences throughout the UK and Ireland. He’s appeared on BBC 2's Brain Candy, Channel 5 at The Store and the Channel 5 Comedy Zone, Radio 2’s Stand Up Show, 28 acts in 28 minutes on Radio 4, and along with Milton Jones he co-wrote a pilot TV show called, 'THE HOUSE OF ROOMS'. After very successfully compering the first Big Charity Comedy Show in October 2016, Dan has agreed to return to be master of ceremonies once again.
