Seymour Mace
Seymour Mace has a reputation for daft, silly comedy. His fast-moving narrative takes us into the world of antidepressants, thoughts on the nature of happiness, how misery drives consumerism, whether the ‘colourful’ characters in his neighbourhood are really the content ones, and on whether bliss can be found through artistic endeavour, such as the poems and artwork he shares with us.

Hayley Ellis
Manchester comedian and regular contributor to XFM’s breakfast show, Hayley Ellis has gone from strength to strength since she began performing in April 2009.

A regular MC at gigs around the country, Hayley’s natural warmth and girl-next-door charm make her impossible to dislike.

During the summer, Hayley performed at Edinburgh Fringe Festival as part of The Comedy Zone, the Fringe’s longest running and most prestigious stand-up showcase.

“Small in stature and big in energy, Ellis simply makes you laugh.” – Giggle Beats

Rich Wall
With sharp, energetic material, and a talent for audience banter, Rich Wall is building a reputation as a friendly, confident, and inventive comedian, able to build a great atmosphere from even the most unpromising crowds. He’s a versatile act, whose constant writing and re-writing of comic material has given him the confidence to take to any stage.

Compere … Tony Simpson
Tony is a topical writer and enjoys sharing his sometimes surreal spin on life.  His failings to find love will have you laughing and cringing.  His background as a strong compere has now led him to hosting awards, charity nights, and product launches.

“Tony Simpson closed the night beautifully.  Cheeky and charming in equal measure” – Speakeasy

Not recommended for under 18’s
