Avalon are the UK's leading comedy agent - they bring two top comedians previewing their material ahead of the Edinburgh Festival this summer.
Paul's latest tour Family-Friendly Comedian (No Children) was extended in 2022 for another 42 dates nationwide after a sell-out first run in 2021.
This follows Live Innit, a record-breaking, thrice-extended tour that saw Paul perform five nights at the Hammersmith Apollo and become the first British-Asian stand-up to sell out Wembley Arena.
The show won Best Live Event 2018 at the ITV Asian Media Awards and the Comedy award at the Eastern Eye’s Arts, Culture and Theatre Awards 2019. Paul won the Comedian of the Year award at the Asian Voice Political and Public Life Awards 2019.
Live Innit was subsequently released, in August 2019, as an Amazon Prime original special, and became the second most-watched Special in Amazon’s catalogue.
Jonny Pelham is one of the most exciting stand-up comedians on the circuit.
Over the last few years he has appeared on Live from the BBC (BBC3), Mock The Week (BBC2), Russell Howard’s stand-up Central (Comedy Central) and Live at the Apollo (BBC2).
Jonny is also an in-demand comedy writer and actor having appeared in the Viceland series, Bobby & Harriet Getting Married, as well as his own short film released as part the Sky Comedy Shorts season, Late Bloomer (Sky Arts).
Jonny is currently developing a number of projects, both scripted and unscripted, for TV, and has written and starred in his own Channel 4 Comedy Blap, Brad Boyz (E4).
This event will go on sale to Patrons and Bronze, Silver and Gold Members on Tuesday 30 May.

Fearless, provocative, and very funny, Ria Lina is the only Filipina comedian in British stand-up and a hugely admired talent in the comedy industry.
Her extensive list of credits includes Live At The Apollo, Have I Got News For You, Mock the Week, Lovestruck High, Richard Hammond’s Brain Reaction, House of Games, The Last Leg and Celebrity Mas-termind.

On his sixth UK tour, the comedian tries to make sense of the current cultural and political scene with his playfully provocative brand of humour.
Whether it's the dire blandness of the two main parties or the shamelessly shoe-horned right-on messages in adverts and films, Geoff continues to tread in areas much of comedy leaves well alone.
But this time around he also has a mission. As well as casting his everyman eye over what's happening in wider society, Geoff is trying to unpick what's happening with your average bloke. Remember them?
It’s been a rough couple of years for blokes. Toxic masculinity has grabbed all the headlines and ruined it for communal garden geezers, who have been put under the microscope like never before. At first glance, there’s not much to examine – there’s no Bloke 2.0.
Taking up his own bloke’s-eye-view. Geoff can see that despite the social media vortex, your man in the street, average Joe, man on the Clapham Omnibus and your John Smiths just keep plodding on, fuelled by a diet of football, sheds, super-hero films, sporting autobiographies, wearing socks at all times and strategically burying feelings when necessary.
However, under the paraphernalia of manhood and the sometimes basic, even primal, behaviour of dads and lads, Geoff can see that there is something mysterious and definitely non-toxic going on.
A kindly and funny stock-take of both himself and his fellow man, Geoff unlocks some of the more complicated behaviour of your husbands, dads and brothers.
'He has become one of our most refreshingly funny comedians of any stripe' ★★★★ The Times
'He’s a class act with a mature, sharp take on modern politics' Sunday Times
You might have seen him on Scared of the Dark, Would I Lie to You, Have I Got News for You, The Royal Variety, QI, Blankety Blank, The Last Leg, and tons more as well.
He's been called an 'overnight success' - even though he's been doing stand-up for yonks!
Chris McCausland is hitting the road again with another masterclass in stand-up comedy that has literally been yonks in the making.
Suitable for ages 16+ years.
Fresh from his sold-out, critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe run and becoming the most viewed British comedian of all time on TikTok, the world famous prankster and Lee Nelson creator is back with an outrageous new show.
In Screwed Up Simon rips into celebrity culture, social media, the police, Putin, Prince Andrew and Jesus.
Nothing is off limits in this hilarious show, including his own mental health, his family, his five arrests and how he once found himself at an underground sex party.
'No show has made me laugh more than this one… His finest hour on stage' ★★★★ The Times
'Screwed Up is a full-on rat-a-tat gag-fest' ★★★★ Mail On Sunday
Somewhere in a parallel universe little Alfie’s natural comedic performance skills were recognised by his doting parents who encouraged and developed his blossoming talent.
After several years as a stage school brat Alfie’s angelic face was launched onto stage and screen and the rest is history...
Meanwhile, in this universe Alfie Moore was told to stop messing about in class before being encouraged into the grinding, grimy world of an apprenticeship in the Sheffield steelworks.
When recession hit he traded steel for copper by joining Humberside Police.
In his 40s the two universes collided when Alfie made a bid for showbiz success - but unfortunately 30 years of shift-work and being punched in the face quite a lot, had left him with a face for radio!
A face not so much lived in as inhabited by a settlement of squatters with little regard to property maintenance and repair.
In his 40s a surprising career shift turned middle-aged Alfie from street cop to BBC radio star. But when TV fame beckoned could he grasp it or was he past it?
Star of BBC Radio 4's It's a Fair Cop.
