Aisling was the first female winner of the 2012 So You Think You’re Funny? competition in its 25-year history. Irish Micks and Legends, her four-part BBC Radio 4 series, written with Yasmine Akram, was nominated for a Chortle Award.
She was named best female TV comic at the British Comedy Awards 2014.
As an actor, Aisling was in Dead Boss with Sharon Horgan (BBC3), ITV’s The Town and Cardinal Burns (E4) as well as the new sketch show from the Horrible Histories team, Fit (BBC/CBBC).
As a comedian, she's appeared on Don’t Sit In The Front Row (Sky Atlantic) and Monumental (BBC Northern Ireland), The Guessing Game (BBC Radio Scotland), The Blame Game (BBC Radio Ulster) and many popular panel TV shows.
Monkey & Roy
A new double act, MONKEY AND ROY, played by Nina Conti and Shenoah Allen. A giant monkey and a man with no credentials stare into your soul and solve your personal problems. Monkey and Roy’s hearts are in the right place but their heads should probably be examined.
Jayde Adams is a British comedian from Bristol, winner of the 2014 Funny Women award and 2016 nominee for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards.
Get Alerts Both brutally honest and gloriously unpredictable, Sophie Willan takes inspiration from her unusual life experiences, to make bold, unapologetic and political work. A force to be reckoned with, she exudes confidence and northern charm.
“Victoria Wood with an attitude problem.” BBC Comedy
Maisie Adam is from Yorkshire, whose anecdotal material and self-deprecating charm have quickly won her praise up and down the country. After previewing her new show Living on the Edge to a full-house crowd at the Ilkley Fringe and receiving rave reviews, she is currently touring the show around theatres, festivals and comedy nights across the UK, where it was nominated for Best New Comedy at Brighton Fringe.
Maisie was nominated for best newcomer at Edinburgh 2018.
Christopher Bliss writes two to three novels a day. He’s fairly well known amongst his family and friend, and he’s pretty sure he’s the best writer in his village. One of last year's 'hidden treasures' (Fest), Rob Carter's loveable character is back with a new hour of unique storytelling and literary blunders. 'One of the best character shows we’ve seen for a long time' (Comedy.co.uk). 'Consistently pant-wettingly funny' (Fest). 'This is a fresh, original show and one of the gems of this year’s fringe' (FringeGuru.com).
Joey Page is eccentric. He is somewhat of an undiscovered sparkling gem. Magical swirling surreal comedy. An antidote to the woes of the world, Joey takes you through the tangled joy of his charmingly childlike logic. Creating a world of uniquely offbeat characters and tall tales of fancy.
