Musical satirists Jonny & the Baptists – real names Jonny Donahoe & Paddy Gervers – are among the hottest musical comedy acts on the UK scene, regularly appearing on TV, radio, and most recently a 50-date UK tour of their hit show “Eat The Poor”. From silly songs to satirical anthems, their riotous live blend of comedy and rock gig has won adoring fans across the country. They have regularly appeared on BBC Radio 4 including The Now Show, The Infinite Monkey Cage, and Sketchorama; and recently appeared on the BBC TV’s Live at Television Centre. They have topped the iTunes comedy chart with single Farage, supported Mark Thomas on tour and appeared at major festivals across the UK.
Sanderson Jones is a comedian, social entrepreneur and wellbeing expert who will have you laughing in ways that leave you feeling fantastic. He’s had sold out shows in Edinburgh, played the Sydney Opera House AND started a worldwide community movement: The Sunday Assembly.
Australian-born and now London-based, Bec Hill has gained a cult following in Australia, the UK and Ireland thanks to her award-winning solo shows, Twitter presence and popular YouTube videos. She has a talent for incorporating arts and crafts into her stand-up routines, creating a unique and unforgettable comedy style that she calls “paper-puppetry”. Bec can be found as a guest on the 2nd series of “Dara O’Briain’s Go 8 Bit”, a judge on “Sam & Mark’s Big Friday Wind-Up”, and the voice of several characters in “Mass Effect: Andromeda”. She also appeared in several series of CBBC’s “The Dog Ate My Homework”, and starred in the Sundance UK Grand Jury Prize winning short film “Russian Roulette”. ★★★★ “Hill is a multi-coloured ray of eternal sunshine. In a world of pain and darkness, her total lack of cynicism is refreshing.” – The Scotsman
