He has written & performed three full-length solo shows in the last 3 years. “Luke Benson: Makes Something of Himself”, a show about turning 30 & trying to do well. “Legendary Feet”. A show looking at mythology & trying to write ones own legend through worthy feats. “Backseat Hero”: A show about being stalked by a Taxi-Driver. Funnier than it sounds.He has appeared on Channel4, Channel 5, GinxTV, Radio 1, 6Music, Radio4, Capital, Virgin and Absolute Radio & written for BBC Radio4 & Sky.
“Impressive verbal dexterity that was thoughtful, clever and very funny. He did it again later, and then again…Luke Benson is a genuinely funny guy and deserves more than his fair share of the Edinburgh audience.” Gigglebeats “A quirky observational set that earns him lots of applause…He looks the part, he’s got the talent, and it’s easy to imagine him on the telly.” Sunday Times
Diane Spencer is comedian, actor and writer. Diane is best known as a stand-up comedian on the UK circuit and has performed worldwide, achieving international recognition for her hilarious work. Diane debuted at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival in 2009, as part of the “Big Comedy Breakfast”, then returned with a new hour “Lost in the Mouth Specific” in 2010 performed on the PBH free fringe. This show and her early work on the UK circuit led to Diane winning the Chortle Award for Best Newcomer (2011). Since then she has written a brand new show every year, each receiving critical acclaim for her honest, filthy and insightful stand-up.
“Between her theatrical facial expressions, on-point character roles and enthralling story-telling ability, Spencer mesmerises the crowd.” ***** Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
“You know that line that people tell you not to cross, as far as boundaries are concerned? I think Diane leapt across it and kept on running. Glitteringly, gob-smackingly outrageous stuff.” Sunday Express
Tania Edwards is a stand-up comedian (BBC1, Radio 4), and writer (her credits include Mock the Week, (BBC2), Après Ski (BBC2), Stand Up For The Week (Channel 4), Twit of the Year (Channel 4), and The Unbelievable Truth (Radio 4). Tania was a finalist in the Hackney Empire, Amused Moose, Leicester Square, Latitude, and Funny Women competitions.
“Akin to a female Simon Evans… a bit posh and something of a sociopath… fantastically seamy side to the material… also great with audience banter… sublime… brilliant.” Chortle
A masterful comic, improviser, podcaster and human, Angus is the epitome of verbose and witty nonsense-talking.
“Angus Dunican is not your average stand-up…such astute and well written turns of phrase.” **** The List
Robin is one of the strongest acts to emerge from the Welsh comedy scene in years – with his quick wit and warm stage presence, coupled with a wicked, cheeky streak, he has wowed audiences up and down the country, time and time again. He’s a natural.

“A deft descriptive style with an air of control and observation becoming a man far advanced of his years. He’ll win you over within moments.” Cardiff Comedy Festival

“Hill’s loose jabs and affable, nice-guy demeanor are what make his gently absurdist comedy so enjoyable.” The Onion
“Great comic ideas seem to flood out of him, whether he’s mashing up home videos with clips of extreme arthouse movies or engaging in a six-month flame war with a Norwegian black metal musician.” The Guardian
“Thanks to his quirky humor and knack for attention-getting, Dave Hill has shot to the top in a surprisingly short period of time.” Time Out New York
