Australian Brendon Burns has been performing comedy since the early Nineties and is known for his aggressive stage presence and controversial material.
He briefly hosted the 11 O’Clock Show and even more briefly the ITV2 spin-off show I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here Now!, walking off after just three shows. However it is live – and especially in his solo shows – where he has forged a reputation, with six live CDs to his name.
Jonny Pelham began comedy at University and while he was there he achieved runner-up in both the coveted So You Think You’re Funny competition and The Chortle Student Comedy Awards. Since graduating university Jonny has continued to impress and was a finalist and judges choice in the BBC Radio New Comedy Awards, as well as being nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer in 2014. 2016 saw Jonny make the exciting step over to the small screen on Russell Howards Stand Up Central for Comedy Central followed by a support slot on Live At The BBC this year. Jonny has also appeared in the Viceland series, Harriet & Bobby Get Married and Plane Spotting for Turtle Canyon.
Maisie Adam is a young comedian from Harrogate. Having only started on the circuit in 2016, her anecdotal material and self-deprecating charm have quickly won her praise up and down the country. She is a comedian who leaves the audience belly laughing, giving standing ovations, throwing roses onstage, naming their babies after her – but most importantly, she is a comedian who never exaggerates.
Moore was a finalist in the 2011 Chortle Student Comedian of the Year Award whilst studying English Literature at the University of Sheffield, where he created the sketch comedy duo Thunderbards with Matt Stevens. After graduating, he worked as a newsreader on a number of radio stations, whilst performing both solo and with Thunderbards. Thunderbards was a finalist in the 2014 NATYS: New Acts of the Year Show.
In September 2017 he appeared as a panelist on the BBC2 panel show Mock the Week and in October 2017 he joined the Absolute Radio breakfast show as a newsreader and sidekick.
