JON PEARSON (MC)
Jon's laid back storytelling has audiences hanging on his every word. With tales based around his own life experiences, his anecdotes are relatable and certain to have people in hysterics. Jon is a multiple award winning comedian who specialises in the art of MC work, and he will be the perfect host for our show. That said, his recent 1 hour show won best Show at the 2023 Leicester Comedy Festival.

PHIL REID
Phil has a warm nature and natural stage presence about him which makes you feel instantly relaxed during his performance. With his friendly attitude and quick wit, makes him a brilliant act to start our evening. From the boot room in the back of a sports shop to the bright lights of a bingo hall, Phil has experienced and seen things that should never be spoken about but that isn't going to stop him sharing his stories with you. Friendly and enthusiastic, his observational style instantly puts audiences at ease. He has also had the privilege supporting the likes of Jason Manford, John Bishop and Keith Harris.

JAMES ELLIS
His sharp observational humour and clever punchlines have won him rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. James’ comedy is rooted in everyday life, and he has a knack for finding the funny in the mundane. A gifted writer, his jokes are well-crafted and delivered with precision. In 2021, James was named South Coast Comedian of the Year, and was a regional finalist for the BBC New Comedy Award. He is currently on tour supporting Angela Barnes on her “Hot Mess” Tour. Ellis is a “Talented comedy craftsman” (Steve Bennett, Chortle) with a bright future ahead of him. If you’re looking for a good laugh on a night out, be sure to catch James live!


“Wonderful, wonderful jokes. James has a relaxed confidence; his set is well themed and thought out and most important of all: the gags are just funny. Really funny.” LAURA LEXX

BRENNAN REECE

As seen on Live At The Apollo (BBC), Celeb Coach Trip (E4) and Roast Battle (Comedy Central).

Brennan is a multi award winning working class wordsmith (Edinburgh Best Newcomer Nominee and English Comedian Of The Year Winner) . A stand-up, a storyteller and self confessed mummy’s boy. His boyish cheeks recently cropped up on Survival Of The Fittest (ITV), The Stand Up Sketch Show (ITV) Live At The Comedy Store (Comedy Central) and racking up over 6 million YouTube hits for his stint on Top Gear (BBC). A true Northern voice, with family close to his heart. Your Mum is going to love him! Not like that, you dirty little perve.

"A powerfully entertaining, unstoppable force" (Chortle)

"A teenage Alan Bennett" (The Skinny)
