Jonny Awsum - Headliner
After completing an eight-year comedy apprenticeship as barman at The Chuckle Club, Jonny Awsum exploded onto the professional comedy scene with a crowd-pleasing set that’s seen him perform hundreds of gigs all around the world.
With his likeable style and trusty guitar, Jonny’s musings include everything from the white lies he tells his girlfriend to his new home town of Croydon and the memory of his first love at eight years old.
Jonny’s feel-good set captivates audiences at every kind of venue from pub back rooms to 700 seat theatres to a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe with his hit show ‘Jonny Awsum’s To Do List’.
Jonny has played all the UK’s top comedy venues including The Glee Club, Jongleurs and The Comedy Store and has performed internationally everywhere from Cyprus to Slovakia.

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.
