“A keen comic mind” – London Evening Standard
1) Harvey Hawkins
Critically acclaimed, award winning Harvey has performed alongside such comedy legends as Gary Delaney, Tom Stade and Joe Lycett to name but a few – and more importantly he’s a top guy too.

2) Adam Beardsmore
Adam has performed at the BBC New Comedy 2016 awards and was nominated for the Birmingham Comedy Festival New Act of the Year 2018 but narrowly lost out to the multiple award winning comedian Laura Monmoth.

Stand-up comedian, viral blogger and bestselling author Sam Avery (aka the Learner Parent) started his award-winning blog when his twin boys were born. A million nappies, Peppa Pig episodes and a head-full of hair loss later, he shares all the lows, highs and hilarious in-betweens of his experiences of first-time parenthood.
Sam’s honest, messy account of wrestling with sleep deprivation and breast pumps – right through to his botched attempts at discipline and pathetic bids to stifle various toddler tantrums that definitely registered on the Richter scale – will have you testing your pelvic floor with laughter.
