Jeff Innocent

“It should be made law that every British Citizen must go and see Jeff Innocent. He’s that funny.” – Evening Standard

Winner of Best Live Comedian UK and regular headliner at Comedy Clubs all over the country, including the infamous Comedy Store in London, Jeff is widely considered one of the most elite live acts on the circuit. 

Ross McGrane (MC)

“Ross is like a corkscrew… He’s a great opener and afterwards the atmosphere is always buzzing!” – Russell Kane

Ross McGrane’s natural stage presence and wry Essex charm have earned him a solid place on the UK comedy circuit, playing in some of the most prestigious venues in the country.

Pre COVID-19, Ross was the official Tour Support for Russell Kane’s Fast & The Curious tour and currently presents Ross & John’s Weekend Breakfast show across his home county on commercial FM & DAB Radio Station; Radio Essex.

Janet Garner

“Her voice has been described as “a beautiful reminder of a London that’s all but disappeared,” but her comedy is contemporary and relevant. Janet is “Laugh out loud, spill your drink funny”.

With her no-nonsense, down to earth style, Janet turns preconceptions about ‘the older lady’ on their head. 

Matt Adlington

“Performing with an easy rapport and an animated delivery” – Chortle

“Matt Adlington has a barrow full of Essex boy charm” – Chortle
