After starting stand-up in New York City in 2003, Arnab Chanda moved to back to England, won the 2005 Jongleurs New Act Competition as well as the 2006 Amused Moose Comedy Awards, and was nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2007 British Chortle Awards.

Catherine started performing stand-up in 2015 and since then has enjoyed a rapid rise through the ranks of UK and Irish comedy. In 2016, she was a finalist in both the BBC New Comedy Awards and Funny Women, drawing praise in the final of the former for having “a distinctive voice and a story you’d like to hear” (Chortle) and in the latter for being “pretty much the perfect comedy package” (Beyond The Joke). Catherine has just been named on the BBC's New Talent Hotlist 2017 and was runner-up in the Irish Comedian of the Year Final 2017.

After a brief career in computer animation Henry Paker decided to give comedy a go. He started out doing stand up in rooms above pubs, then in rooms below pubs and then eventually in the main body of the pub itself. In 2008 he won the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year and realised he might be onto something. Since then Henry’s many comic talents have seen him carve out a career as a comic writer, stand up, actor and cartoonist.
The Guardian **** ‘scales impressive comedy peaks throughout this entertainingly twisty solo hour’
Chortle **** ‘there’s not a spare syllable or hesitation in the whole hour, he is as precise as music and the audience were delighted to follow his tune’
