Rob Rouse

Whirlwind, dervish, maelstrom or just plain lunacy, Rob Rouse is a comedian who’s energy and zeal takes stand-up to a different level!

Armed with paper sharp witts and a truck load of charm, he is a must see act who never fails to deliver a top quality performance.

If its TV credits you need to convince you – bla bla bla he’s done all the panel shows (Comedy Shuffle with Rob Rouse BBC3 8 Out of Ten Cats Channel 4. Grown Ups BBC3 Guilty Pleasures BBC3 Spoons Channel 4. The Friday Night Project). The CV is littered with TV and Radio credits, comedy awards and accolades. But Live stand up comedy is a different medium and Robs command of it is superb!

We love Rob Rouse, he’s amazing – come see this show!


Pierre Hollins

The legend that is Pierre Hollins ladies and gentlemen.

Not only has he been gigging for over two hundred years, all accross the globe and nearby planets, Pierre Hollins can juggle and ride a unicycle too. Having said that, he’s more than likely just going to be amusing us with his witty anecdotes and devishly crafted songs. Pierre Hollins is one of the most sought after UK headliners, come and find out why.

An easy going joyful manner laced and juxtaposed with pathos and reality that only an experienced comedian and earthling can bring you.
In the early days he worked as a support act to Lenny Henry and Rory Bremner; appeared in the West End with Rita Rudner; and toured with The Flying Pickets, and Willie Rushton & Barry Cryer.

Today his wit and banter is a razor sharp as it is funny.

I hope he gigs for another two hundred years.

Paul Foot

I was born in Amersham in Buckinghamshire at an early age. Initially, I was unable to fend for myself. I could not work out how to walk or even say words. Luckily, a kind lady and gentleman took me home from the hospital.

My mother taught me to speak nicely and talk about the weather. My dad mainly used to cook a pie. It wouldn’t always go right. Quite often he would drop the pie on the floor. “I’ve dropped the pie on the floor!” he would shout. That’s what he’s like, because he doesn’t use oven gloves.

Later I became a teenager, and decided to have a go at stand-up comedy in a little bar. I did not have any jokes. So I just made up stuff like, “Can anyone here name a fruit? A peach, madam? Personally, I prefer a pineapple.”

Amazingly, it went well, due to comic timing, stage presence and luck and I resolved on the spot to become a professional entertainer.

17 years later, I became an overnight success.


Nick Helm

Otherwise known as the ‘car crash of comedy’ Nick Helm has literally smashed on to the comedy scene. Having only started in 2007, Helm has already bagged nominations at Ed Fringe for best comic and winner of best Joke… I’ll let him tell though.

This guys makes me laugh, which is good as he does it for a living…

Since then he has performed all over the world: Ireland, France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Estonia… You get the idea. He was the first British comedian to perform in Croatia.
