Sam Harland’s unique,  observational humour, is drawn from his working class roots. He is able to engage his audience in a warm, quick-witted and friendly manner. Sam’s material is self-deprecating, ironic and honest, particularly in relation to his colourful past escapades.

After surviving two rehabs, various detention centres and a childhood on the streets of Hull, Sam draws on his wealth of experience to bring you a humorously cynical (yet optimistic) slant on life. Sharp witted and charismatic, Sam has been performing stand-up since 2006 and is a real audience pleaser.


Harriet Dyer (as seen on Rosie Jones’ Disability Comedy Extravaganza, Comedy Central Live, The Russell Howard Hour.) is as bonkers as she is funny.

Harriet was a main writer for both seasons of Jon Richardson's Channel Hopping and wrote and starred in Meet the Richardson's. Winner of Neurodivergent Representation Award at Edinburgh Fringe 2022.

Harriet has been a full time comic since 2013. She’s had numerous critically acclaimed shows, works for the majority of big clubs and festivals, regularly gigs overseas, and prides herself in being totally original! - An experience to behold, if you will.


John Newton began his comedy career in 2003, he fast became known for his inventive writing, covering a massive spectrum of subjects from the surreal to the hard hitting, yet still managing to remember that "the gag" comes first. In that respect, he's an old fashioned gag teller/writer and proud of it.

A very versatile act, Johns works on both the alternative club scene as well as the Cruise Ship / Holiday Resort circuit, going down a storm on both making him a must see act.

John is an extremely well travelled comedian. Travelling from continent to continent has given John a wealth of experience to draw from.

Since his appearance in the 2008 Chortle Student Comedy Award Final, Chester comedian Danny McLoughlin has been making a name for himself across the circuit as a well respected talent and club MC. With performances in the prestigious Big Value Comedy Show during Edinburgh Festival 2009 & 2010, his quick wit and sharp material has seen Danny firmly establish himself as a sought after act on any stand up bill, regularly performing at every major UK comedy club, music festivals including Latitude & Leeds as well as being a regular MC for the coveted Edinburgh Comedy Awards Galas.

Danny has been hand picked to support a number of high profile acts on tour including; Micky Flanagan, Sarah Millican, Doc Brown, Paul Smith and Sean Lock. His TV credits include appearing on Al Murray’s One Night Stand (Dave) and the Premier League Show (BBC Two) and he also took to the radio waves to co-host one of Jason Manford’s Sunday morning shows for Absolute Radio.
