Ashley Blaker and Imran Yusuf: Prophet Sharing

Two great religions. Two great comedians.

The descendants of Abraham may have gone their separate ways but now stand-up comedian friends Ashley Blaker and Imran Yusuf – both stars of their own BBC shows – are joining forces in the most-unlikely double-act since Kermit and Miss Piggy (who neither Ashley and Imran can eat!) Originally brought together by a passion for the same football team, the pair are travelling the UK uniting people of every faith and none for an evening of laughter.

WHY? 'A slickly funny stand-up show' New York Times on Ashley Blaker

‘Imagine John Oliver in a yarmulke' New York Post on Ashley Blaker

‘A special vein of comic material' ★★★★ Financial Times on Ashley Blaker

‘Intelligent, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny’ Time Out on Imran Yusuf

‘An hour of cheek and charm' ★★★★ The Independent on Imran Yusuf

‘Sharp, passionate and uplifting’ Daily Telegraph on Imran Yusuf

Simon Brodkin: Let Me Introduce Myself

You may know him as ‘comedy legend’ Lee Nelson or as the ‘unfunny pillock’ who gave Theresa May a P45, but you won’t know him as ‘tiny Jew’ Simon Brodkin.

After three hugely successful series of Lee Nelson on the BBC, multiple TV appearances (Live at the Apollo, Sunday Night at The Palladium, Channel 4’s Comedy Gala) and several world-famous stunts on the likes of Donald Trump, Kanye West and Sepp Blatter, Simon unveils his funniest persona yet; himself.

In this highly anticipated ‘debut’ show, the award winning, critically acclaimed comedian takes us from his childhood growing up on the mean streets of Hampstead Village, to his adulthood as a failed doctor, inept parent and fairly rubbish Jew.

WHY? ‘Prodigious talent’ The Times

‘Satire so sharp you could slash a tyre with it’ Daily Telegraph

Gyles Brandreth - Break a Leg!

Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), the BBC Radio 4 Just a Minute regular delivers dazzling wit, wisdom, high drama, low comedy and hilarious name-dropping.

WHY? ‘A master raconteur’ ★★★★★ The Telegraph

‘Total joy’ ★★★★★ Scotsman

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.
