Josh Howie - Headliner
Josh is a much in-demand stand-up comic, performing regularly at all the major comedy clubs around the UK and has also taken his distinctive brand of humour to India, Ireland, France, China, Thailand, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia and America. In 2012 he was invited to perform at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, where he was filmed for the internationally distributed Just For Laugh’s All Access TV show.
Josh has written and performed three solo shows for the Edinburgh Festival, before sell-out runs at the Soho Theatre. These include his hugely successful debut solo Fringe stand-up show, entitled Chosen, which played to sell out audiences and received rave reviews at the 2008 Edinburgh Festival, and his August 2010 show Josh Howie: Gran Slam, based on his time living with his grandmother. In 2011, Josh returned with I am a Dick.
Excellent, intelligent stand-up… terrific
Adam Rowe - Headliner
Adam Rowe first got on stage to do Stand-Up in 2010. A little over a year later he was named Liverpool Comedian of the Year, quit his bar job and hasn’t looked back.
After being asked to host the prestigious Big Value Showcase at The Edinburgh Fringe in 2014, Adam is now in demand to play all of the UK’s biggest comedy clubs and has firmly established himself as one of the most exciting young comics of his generation.
In 2015, Adam recorded his first Stand-Up Special & DVD, titled “Opinionated Hypocrite”, live at the sold out Unity Theatre in Liverpool. He also has his own weekly podcast “Talking Crap” in which he rants and talks about all sorts of things, but mainly; comedy, battle rap and football.

Russell Hicks - Compere
Anyone who has seen Russell Hicks knows that it is never the same show twice. Taking a different approach to most comedians, Russell Hicks weaves improvisation with stream of conscious delivery that has moved many audience members to return for two nights in a row. Nothing in this biography can do his act justice other than to say, you just have to see him live.
“Astonishing, astonishing and astonishing. He simply took the roof of the place leaving people talking about his act all night. His entire 20 minutes was totally improvised based entirely on audience interaction. It did help that we had one member of the audience who looked like the twin brother of Larry David from Curb Your Enthusiasm and provided Russell with so much material to improv on. Based on this one gentlemens comments, Russell created a world where he is doing a West End show about willy-helicopters, the 28th October is now International Toothpaste Day and his performance last night was just a figment of the gentlemans imagination. The audience were at times almost collapsing with laughter on the floor and I was one of them. Watching Russell Hicks last night was reminiscent of watching early Ross Noble on stage.
