Paul Sinha - Shout Out to My Ex
In his 2015 Edinburgh Fringe show, comedian and doyen of daytime, Paul Sinha, weaved an intricate tale of happiness based on a combination of doing two jobs he loved, enjoying parental approval, and, actually being in a proper, grown-up, long-term relationship. The day after he returned home, the illusion of happiness was shattered. Was this the end? The beginning of the end? Or the end of a beginning? ‘Life will bring him crashing down to earth soon enough. And that really ought to sustain his densely funny and accomplished comedy.’ (Scotsman, 2015).
Andrew Lawrence - The Happy Accident Tour
Double Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated stand-up – and subject of 2016 Sky Arts documentary The Outcast Comic – pokes fun at liberal pretensions and the horrors of parenthood. As seen on Live At The Apollo. 11 shows only.‘A natural-born contrarian’ (Telegraph). ‘It’s fearless. It’s funny. It’s full of really good jokes’ (BroadwayBaby.co.uk).
Aaron Twitchen - Curtain Twitchen
Aerial-circus-stand-up fusion show. Mixing relatable stories of friendship, love and wine with jaw-dropping stunts on the aerial silks into a gossipy cabaret explosion, Aaron Twitchen takes comedy to highs you've never seen before... literally. As featured on BBC Radio 4 and tour support for Luisa Omeilan. An innovative new approach: intimate circus, led by stand-up comedy to a power-pop soundtrack. 'Seriously talented. Hilarious, warm, energetic and capable of busting some awesome moves, Twitchen is a quadruple threat' (Skinny). 'Positive, fun, feel-good... best free fringe show I've seen' (Scotsgay).
Whose Turn? is a hilarious evening of comedy improvisation games, from our roster of funny people. We’ve been hosting these nights for over twelve years, so you’d think by now we’d have some sort of ability to do it well. And that’s just one way in which we’ll surprise you!
The format is loosely based on the popular “Whose Line is it Anyway?”, and when we say “loosely” we mean completely ripped off but with a slightly different title
Mark Row - A1:The long Road to Edinburgh
Just twelve short months ago, Mark Row had never stepped on stage to perform stand-up comedy... But then he was struck by the sort of crazy idea that any normal person would consider for only the briefest of seconds, before dismissing as ridiculous and carrying on with their cornflakes... But Mark just couldn't let it go! Instead, he rounded up some friends, jumped on a plane, and came to Edinburgh to meet some comedians and find out what it would take to put on his own show... This is the show he has made!
Jimmy James Jones
Jimmy James Jones is a comic/actor on the rise, with his crazy physical presence on stage to his smile, he has a way of making a audience laugh without even saying a word.

'Recently opening for Luisa Omielan on her What Would Beyonce Do?' show and Lee Camp, He is a joy to watch on stage with his crazy family stories to the way he views life, you will be crazy not to enjoy him on stage and off stage!
