    Greg Burns - Headliner
    Greg Burns currently hosts London's No.1 Drivetime show for Capital FM Radio, having previously hosted a Sunday afternoon show for Virgin Radio and a Drivetime show for Heart FM. He also stepped in over the Festive period to co-host the Capital FM Breakfast show.

    With over ten years working on the comedy circuit, Greg Burns is a club favourite for his playful humour and infectious charm. His confident performance and affable persona make him immensely popular with bookers and audiences alike. With hilarious and well constructed routines, he is a perfect addition to any line up. Greg can be seen at the top comedy clubs across the world including Jongleurs, The Glee Club and The Comedy Store.

    He is also in high demand for corporate work as well as both a host and a performer. In particular, he often hosts fundraising events for the Global Angels charity, of which he is an ambassador.

    "As loveable a comedian as you're likely to find. Confident, funny and clever." The Sunday Times
    "He's a slick, sharp operator with plenty of well-crafted observational material guaranteed to please." Chortle

    Rhys James - Support

    Rhys James - like most other comedians - is a man who talks about some things. But unlike most other comedians, he is nineteen. Perk up your comedy ears and listen to the voice of youth discuss silver-linings, student tribulations and family blunders.

    "Amazing skills for someone so young." - Comedy Central


    Kevin Shepherd - Compere


    Kevin moved from his native town of Bognor Regis with a burning ambition to become a successful stand up comic.

    His friendly face and manic energy are proving successful with all types of audience. He is equally at home performing a set or compering. He has played many of the top UK clubs including Banana Cabaret, Frog and Bucket, Comedy Club, Comedy Café, Jongleurs and Highlight.

    In addition he has performed support slots for Mickey Flanagan on his nationwide tour.

    "Kevin Shepherd packed the next 20 or so minutes with as many jokes as some comedians manage in an hour. He switched between anecdotal and punchline based humour with ease, and left us eager for more." BBC reviewer
