James Ross
Remember childhood favourite Guess Who? James Ross does that, but based on vibes, and played with YOU the lovely audience. Failure is certain. A good time not absolutely guaranteed but quite likely.

“Alex is a natural comedic talent and even with 5 months away from stage, she stays hilarious and consistent” – Dane Baptiste
“She is so comfortable and engaging to watch! Way beyond her years” – Brennan Reece
“Fantastic gag rate. I can see you on TV. Really original persona I can see working on TV. I hope you do.” – Rachel Parris

Saeth Wheeler
Saeth is a gay socialist from Yorkshire – but despite that, they’re quite nice, really. You can see them delivering their witty, absurdist comedy at venues around the North, including Dodgy Comedy, Complete Joke, and Blizzard Comedy.

“Saeth is a brilliant comic whose friendly and likeable stage presence only serves to hide their pointed fury at the world and themselves.” – Bradford Fringe
“Everything wrong with modern Britain” – The Daily Mail

and Maxine Wade
A rising star of the northern comedy scene, Maxine Wade combines political satire with anecdotes of her time nursing in the NHS. Her hilarious quick fire gags and puns about real life stories you wouldn’t believe happened to her will have you laughing all night. Saucy, sexy, and with a hint of sarcasm, Maxine has a reputation for bringing the house down’.

“Jonny is a force of nature on stage. A whirlwind of hilarity with a unique viewpoint, they energy and passion personified.” – XS Malarkey
