Robert White Robert White

“Just one of the funniest performers I’ve ever seen, I’ve never laughed like that!” David Walliams

“He may sound like a niche act, but the musical comedian has managed to garner a wide appeal with his chaotic style and improvised musical skills.” The Sun

‘Robert White, the only Asperger, gay, dyslexic, cross-lateral, quarter-welsh, webbed-toed,hyper-sensitive, Gluten-intolerant, weight-fixated, pseudo-genius, musical comedian there is…. probably!’

Known for his brilliant timing and performance style, Robert’s chaotic stage presence,improvisational skills and delivery won him the 2010 Malcolm Hardy Award for Comic Originality. And in the same year, he wrote one of Dave’s Top Ten Jokes of The Fringe.

He is arguably best known as coming second in ITV’s highest rated show, Britain’s Got Talent, in 2018.

The quirky comic sailed through his first audition, after his offbeat humour and fantastically rude song about the judges brought a standing ovation. Despite the barbs, they all loved it and unanimously voted him through to the next stage. However, Robert stepped it up a notch in his semi-final performance–poking fun at himself and his sexuality before performing an even ruder song about the panel.

His performances throughout were typically chaotic, but hilarious. Robert’s incredible stage presence and fast-paced comedy routines won over the judges and voting public, at every stage of the show.

He is now a sought-after act who regularly performs across the country and internationally. His off the wall jokes, improvisatory songs, barely-believable stories and interactive music stand him far apart from the usual comedy available nationwide.

★★★★“His beautifully crafted set is clever in unguessable ways, unexpectedly hilarious at every turn and a great joy wrapped up in a big laugh, sprinkled with adorable.” The Scotsman

★★★★“the funniest, most unlikely, rudest yet sweetest” Entertainment Now

“Absurd and excellent”- Rife Magazine

★★★★★ Ed Fringe Review

Burt Williamson is a stand-up comedian, improviser and comedy producer based in Bristol. He’s had two critically acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, is the brains behind Bristol Comedy Festival and an all round funny guy. At once silly and serious, smart and stupid Burt packs dense punchlines with know-it-all smarm and goofy charm to hilarious effect. At the forefront of a new and exciting generation of comics emerging from Bristol, Burt leads the charge on a new wave of talent in British comedy.

Adam Beardsmore

Adam Beardsmore

‘One of our favourite new acts of the Festival’ Leicester Comedy Festival

‘Genuinely funny, innovative and disarming’ Nick Page, English Comedian of The Year

Adam is a class comedy act from Staffordshire who had performed all over the country in some of its best clubs and dingiest pubs giving a disgruntled view of his life and answering the questions no one asked. Through one of the most egotistical art forms, Adam will tell you about the world through his eyes, why we are all the centre of our own universes, the best ways to look out for number one and how being self-centred doesn’t necessarily mean you are your own biggest fan.

Kate MartinKate Martin

‘Bulletproof’ Chortle

‘Undeniably gifted. Explosive new talent, definitely an act that you will be bragging about seeing early in her career.’ NDC

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.

Kate was a finalist of the Funny Women Stage Awards 2022, runner-up in the finals of the WDCF New Comedian of the Year competition 2021, and in 2021 won the Comedy Store’s King Gong, Up the Creeks Blackout, and the Frog and Bucket’s Beat the Frog.
