Andrew Maxwell - Showtime

A memorable cocktail of personal stories, astute political observations and the odd surprise foray into character cameos.

Andrew is known for his eagle-eyed, passionate current-affairs comedy showcased in his many appearances on BBC Radio 4 (News Quiz, Welcome To Wherever You Are, Public Enemies).
He's been seen on BBC1’s Live at the Apollo and Have I Got News for You, ITV2’s Celebrity Juice and BBC2’s Mock the Week. To a whole new generation he is the devilish voice of MTV's Ex On The Beach.
Suitable for ages 14+ years.

WHY? ‘One of the most significant comedians working in the country today’ ★★★★★ The Independent

‘Showtime is a masterclass in mirth, sublime timing, and killer punchlines’ ★★★★★ The Herald

Al Murray - Landlord of Hope and Glory (work in progress)

Citizens of Hope and Glory! Our new tomorrow beckons. A new tomorrow that smells reassuringly of yesterday, but with wifi.

One last heave and we will be there. And when the going gets tough the tough get going. Although the going won’t get tough and anyone who tells you it is going to be tough is lying.

Come join me to marvel at the majesty of our green and pleasant land. A land globally renowned for our culture, history and places, like the world-famous Salisbury Cathedral.

Join me to step backwards into the future.

WHY? ‘Stand up Gold’ The Guardian

Gyles Brandreth - Break a Leg!

They say all political careers end in tears.

‘Total joy’ ★★★★★ Scotsman

Suitable for ages 11+ years.
