Paul Sinha

A trained medical doctor who is perhaps best known as the Sinnerman on the hugely popular ITV quiz show ‘The Chase’, Paul has been a successful comedian for a number of years. As a club comedian, he has played every major comedy club in the UK, performed in eighteen other countries across the globe, and been three times nominated for Best Club Comedian at the Chortle Awards, winning in 2014.

“One of those comedians who makes you realise the power of stand-up comedy and the respect it deserves as an art form.” Yorkshire Post

“This is what a good stand-up should be. Hilariously funny, passionate and articulate.” Chortle

Mandy Muden

A semi-finalist on ‘Britain’s got Talent’, Mandy is the only women every to combine comedy and magic on the UK comedy circuit. She has been awarded The Magic Circle Carlton Award for Comedy in Magic and has performed all over the world from Comedy Clubs to Buckingham Palace. She has a striking personality with a razor-sharp wit that creates a fantastic rapport through audience participation.

“Tommy Cooper was a great magician and really funny, and you are too! Fantastic!” David Walliams

Peter Brush

A highly distinctive performer and deft writer of finely crafted jokes, Peter Brush unassumingly takes the stage before consummately conquering it with an arsenal of razor-sharp quirky one-liners and peerlessly original routines, all delivered in an amusingly awkward fashion.

Peter performs at all the major clubs across the UK, as well as having done many of its biggest festivals. Formerly a BBC New Comedy Award finalist, he has written for several BBC Radio 4 shows and was the support act for Alexei Sayle’s most recent tour.

”I love Peter Brush, what a comic” Jason Manford

Nick Everritt

Nick Everritt has brought his deadpan comedy stylings to venues across the UK and to the Edinburgh Fringe. Nick was shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Award in 2022 and finished second place at British Comedian of the Year 2023.

Nick Everritt has been a regular on the London open mic circuit for the past three years, where he has become well known for his deadpan, robotic delivery and his self-sabotagingly niche brand of meta anti-comedy.

‘A droll, witty and very self-conscious deconstruction of comedy’ – Chortle.

Bert Broadbent

Bert Broadbent Comedian

Comedian Bert Broadbent joins our Friday Comedy Night lineup at the Fringe. Bert is an observational London comic who talks about the inane hypocrisies of everyday life, his juggling of class identity, and he also does a bit about having new dog.


Andy Stedman - Comedy MC

With a mix of jokes, comedy songs and plenty of audience interaction, Andy is never afraid to indulge in some friendly back-and-forth with the crowd. With two full Edinburgh shows under his belt and over a thousand comedy gigs, Andy has made a quick transition from professional singer-songwriter to professional comedian.

“Stedman displays a real talent in playing to his audience, creating a friendly rapport which gives the show much of its charm. His songs are genuinely funny” – Broadway Baby

“Bang on trend” – Bruce Dessau, London Evening Standard
