Can Duggan? Should Duggan? Will Duggan

Will Duggan (as seen on the Russell Howard Hour, Sky One) is never going to be the youngest person to achieve... anything, anymore. Barrelling, as he is, towards 40 with terrifying speed, but looking at all those things he had planned, there's probably the vestige of something that he can grab, polish and present as a life's work. Maybe. Probably. Perhaps. You may have seen Will on Sky, BBC Three, ITV, or heard him popping up on BBC Radio 4. Maybe you've walked past him on the street. 'Effortlessly funny' ★★★★★ (JOE.co.uk).

Mitch Benn: The World's Cleverest Idiot

The Songmeister's back, to tell us how artificial intelligence is no match for good ol' organic stupidity, and (from experience) how ACTUAL intelligence can't save you from being unbelievably cretinous...   Mitch Benn is acknowledged as one of the best writers/performers of comedy songs in the UK. He is perhaps best known as the resident comic songwriter on BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show from 1999 to 2016. Well crafted, well sung, his songs are just plain funny' (The Guardian) Some reviews for last year's show: 'The man is talent .... I really enjoyed it! The audience all around me seemed to lap up every musical second.' ★★★★ (Edinburgh Reviews) 'As always there is what is for me a highlight, his ‘live looping’ where with the aid of his phone and a few pedals, he builds from scratch a fully orchestrated number in front of ones very eyes' ★★★★ (One4Review) 'Mitch Benn may be wondering what The Point is, but to the audience, it’s very clear, making us all laugh until we’re red in the face. And he does this very well. Bloody funny, go see.' ★★★★ (Starburst)

Martin Angolo: Idiot Wind

Idiot Wind is the noise that comes out of a comedian's mouth in the form of jokes and observations, and Martin Angolo is full of it. The award-winning Irish comic looks at modern Ireland's positive and negative cultural shifts compared to the rest of the world, in an hour that's silly and politely offensive, in order to challenge the idea that 'comedians can't say anything these days'. As seen on Amazon Prime's LOL: Last One Laughing Ireland. 'Very funny' (Graham Norton) 'Laser-sharp wit' (Independent) 'Martin is hilarious and is an Irish national treasure' (Eric Andre).

Harry’s was medium to large and once he pulled the pin; it destroyed an eight-year relationship, a mortgage and a blue whippet. Relationships, family dynamics and his years spent teaching future serial killers are all brought under the comedy spotlight in this show. Stachini serves up an hour of relatable, honest, and hilarious stand-up, shining a light on the Grenades that we all carry. Harry Stachini’s stand up and crowd work clips have amassed millions of views across his social media. He's established a reputation as an exciting young comedian with an impressive easy-going style. His warm and friendly stage presence comfortably leads us through hilarious and skilful storytelling which is beyond his years. He regularly performs at the UK’s finest comedy clubs and festivals and has also performed overseas in both Asia and Europe. 'A must-see act... compelling, inventive storytelling' (Spotlight Comedy Club) 'Well observed characterisations and anecdotes' (The Skinny) 'Belly-achingly funny' (I Love Manchester) 'Hotly tipped funnyman' (Manchester Wire)

I've got enough different flavours of brain fog to start a vape store. I've enlisted an army of nanobots with defibrillators to resuscitate my dopamine receptors so I can listen to dubstep again.
