About the Event
MC is Graeme Rayner
Graeme started performing live comedy in November 2018. He sent a video of his first performance to David Baddiel, who said "If that's your first ever gig, you've got a future Graeme. I was going to say great future, but let's not be premature. Made me laugh out loud."
Since then Graeme has been performing at various venues around the country, and is steadily building a reputation, his progress slowed down only by a global pandemic.
He has shared a stage with well know comedians like Tez Ilyas, Alun Cochrane, Archie Kelly, Meryl O'Rourke, Scott Bennett and more.

Notts Comedy Review
Russel’s first gig was at the notorious King Gong at the Manchester Comedy Store. He went on to win it and then followed it up later that year with a semi final appearance in the Manchester Comedian Of The Year Competition.
Now residing in London, Russell is regularly popping up at prestigious clubs such as Top Secret & Up The Creek, as well as sharing the stage with acts such as Joe Lycett, Sean Walsh and even the chatty man himself Alan Carr.
In 2018 Russell made his Edinburgh Fringe debut with his critically acclaimed show ‘The Curious Incidents Of The Gay In The Night Time’. Since then Russell has gone on to perform at festivals all over the country including Leicester, Nottingham, Manchester & Brighton. He even appeared on the Glee Cardiff Pride Stage alongside Robert White in 2019.
Russell is a likeable act who the audience instantly warm to. With his sharp and cheeky material Russell is a perfect act for any live audience.

Jonny Brook the award winning Sit down, Stand Up !
Jonny, The happy face of dark humour who started bring laughter to Yorkshire before sharing his talent further afield
Brook is dry. Incredibly dry. You listen intently, and you’re never ready for the punchline. You can’t tell when it’s coming because of his delivery, but when it arrives it’s consistently a killer line. Every single time.
Crucial topics that he covers include love and poetry, a comparison to him and Lady Gaga, his parents’ divorce and sharing stories about living with legs that hate him.
Yorkshire comedy Awards - Breakthrough Act winner 2022
The style of Jonny Brook absolutely makes his act
Jules performs around the country, telling anyone who will listen about ageing disgracefully, body hang-ups, parenting, and dating. This former teacher’s relaxed, chatty style, crowd interaction and warmth, all served with a sardonic wit, make her a natural crowd pleaser.
