Nathan Caton Nathan Caton

“A comic well worth catching any chance you can” One4review

“Funny, clever and a pleasure to listen to.” Broadway Baby

Award Winning Nathan Caton is one of the most exciting young comedians on the scene. Gigging since the tender age of 19, over the last decade he has established himself both as a circuit headliner, and a name on TV and radio.

Within his first few years on stage, he had picked up various accolades and coveted plaudits including the Chortle Student Comic of the Year award and Broadcast Hotshot and written and starred in a pilot for Paramount Comedy (now Comedy Central) entitled The Nathan Caton Show.

Since then Caton has gone from strength to strength, wowing audiences at comedy clubs up and down the UK, and on his numerous TV and radio appearances, with his delightfully charming blend
of personal and political comedy.

James CookJames Cook

‘Not to be confused with the explorer, the bass player in the Arctic Monkeys, a character off of Skins, the BBC’s Scotland correspondent, the Australian Rules footballer, the boxer, the square in Middlesbrough, the University in Queensland or the type of Mercedes Mini-van’.

‘An award-winning commercial radio presenter and stand-up comedian his laid back attitude, dry sense of humour and sharp tongue are a rare mix that always fascinates his audiences’ (Funhouse Comedy). You can often find him performing at clubs such as The Glee, Jongleurs, Komedia among others, and he’s a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe, either doing stand-up, or performing shows about board gaming.

His act has been described as “truly original” (Danny Wallace (off of the telly)), whereas he’s been called “suave and chirpy” by that publishing powerhouse, the Bromsgrove Advertiser, and a “sarcastic raconteur” by the Leeds Metro.

For some reason, this means that he has been likened to “the future Frank Skinner” (Birmingham Metro) and “Dylan Moran’s younger brother” (The Stage). How this is possible remains a mystery.

Karen BayleyKaren Bayley

“Bayley’s material surprises with inspired and sparkling punchlines…with comic timing that is rarely less than brilliant. An assured performer who doesn’t have much trouble getting audiences laughing.” Chortle

“I saw her recently and she blew my socks off. Funny in her own right, she was brilliant, clever and she’s gonna be huge.” BBC Online

“Likeable headstrong persona- packing a considerable performing punch.” The List

Delightfully saucy, her friendly and confident stage presence, combined with a killer wit, an infectious giggle and some devastating one-liners make her a comedic force to be reckoned with a warm and welcoming with a delightfully saucy and spiky edge, her bold, no nonsense attitude strikes a perfect pitch with men and women alike. Karen can be seen performing at all the established clubs and bookers across the UK and has recently been supporting Joe Lycett on his tour.

Michael FabbriMichael Fabbri
Michael Fabbri has been a stand-up since 2003 and regularly performs at major comedy clubs throughout the UK and all over the world.

He has worked as a writer for Radio and TV and recently had his own stand-up series: ‘Dyslexicon’ on BBC radio 4. He has done several solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and worked as a support act for Micky Flanagan, Angela Barnes, Lucy Porter, and Stephen K Amos.
