Alan Davies - After a host of awards and nominations including Time Out Best Young Comic in 1991, Alan took the role of Jonathan Creek, written by David Renwick, which won a BAFTA Award for Best Drama. The show ran for 14 years and has been sold worldwide.

Following sell out tours, a west end season and a BBC1 stand-up special of his show Urban Trauma, Alan took part in a comedy pilot produced by John Lloyd and hosted by Stephen Fry.
QI has subsequently run on the BBC every year since 2003.

In 2011 Alan travelled to Australia for a successful tour of QI Live followed by a sell-out tour of his stand-up show, Life Is Pain, which ran at the Edinburgh Festival in 2012 and then toured the UK.

Alan is a versatile performer and tonight will be showcasing fresher material.

Julie “Psycho” Jones - A mother of 8 or possibly 9 kids – who’s counting when Jezzer K’s in the middle of a DNA test? Having left prison a few months back Julie is now embarking on a career as a comedian and entertainer.

Nico Yearwood - Originally from the tropical island of Barbados, Nico has been setting the London comedy circuit alight with his unique blend of Caribbean flavoured comedy. Whether he is delivering hilarious stories about growing up in Barbados or his new life in London, his laid back style and charm immediately win audiences over and leave them wanting more. He is always a crowd favourite.

Nigel Lovell – MC – A finalist in the Newbury Comedy Festival’s You Must Be Joking competition 2012, Nigel has gigged all over the country to much acclaim. With his blend of sharp satirical humour and hilarious anecdotes Nigel is an excellent and experienced MC.

Del Strain -If energy is required then Del Strain has it by the bucket load. Punchline after punchline is dealt out with gusto, charm and cheek. Del is a kinda cross between a Ned, a junkie, and your lovable smart ass wee brother. He’s an act that could hold you to ransom and you’d still be loving it.
