Bringing the merry mirth is a crack squad of hand-picked comedians: 

Rob Rouse
Probably best known for his portrayal of ‘Ned Bottom’ in Ben Elton’s hit BBC 2 Shakespeare sitcom Upstart Crow, Sheffield-born Rob is also one of the best comic storytellers out there. He regularly receives rave reviews from the critics and has been described by the Sunday Times as ‘a man with genuinely funny bones’.

Stephen Bailey
One of the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming comedy acts, Stephen is becoming a regular on our TV screens. He can be seen on Channel 5’s Celebs on the Farm, and has recently filmed for Live At The Apollo, due to hit our screens in 2020. Stephen’s friendly, open and gossipy brand of humour is destined to make him a star.

President Obonjo
The larger-than-life, uber-confident, self-appointed, side-splitting dictator of ‘Lafta Republic’ has been performing to packed crowds and critical acclaim, winning plaudits for his genius character study and attracting media attention at his recent stint at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019.

Kate Smurthwaite
Comedian, writer and activist, Kate is a regular on panel shows and has been described as ‘one of the wittiest gun-slingers I’ve ever seen on stage’ (The Spectator).

Jack Gleadow
Best Newcomer Nominee for the Chortle Awards 2019 and winner of the Amused Moose National New Comic award, Jack’s star is on the rise. 

Ruth E Cockburn
Blackburn-born Ruth is a musical comedian, writer and performance artist and a favourite on the northern comedy circuit. ‘Plain and simple, she’s just funny’ (Terry Alderton).

Jed Salisbury - MC
Hull-based Jed is a legend on the Yorkshire comedy circuit and has also recently made a name for himself after starring in recent BBC documentary ‘Who Are You Calling Fat?’. With Jed hosting, audiences are always in safe hands.
