After a brief career in computer animation Henry Paker decided to give comedy a go. He started out doing stand up in rooms above pubs, then in rooms below pubs and then eventually in the main body of the pub itself. In 2008 he won the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year and realised he might be onto something. Since then Henry’s many comic talents have seen him carve out a career as a comic writer, stand up, actor and cartoonist.
Henry took his first solo hour of stand up Edinburgh Festival in 2010 and followed it up with his acclaimed show Cabin Fever in 2011 (**** – The Guardian: ‘scales impressive comedy peaks throughout this entertainingly twisty solo hour’) and Classic Paker in 2013 (**** – Chortle: ‘there’s not a spare syllable or hesitation in the whole hour, he is as precise as music and the audience were delighted to follow his tune’). His narrative comedy show, The Golden Lizard, won him and Mike Wozniak the Best New Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival in 2011, and went on to sell out a run at London’s Soho Theatre.
Henry’s TV appearances include Russell Howard’s Good News, Seann Walsh World and Edinburgh and Beyond. Henry also co writes and stars in Radio 4 sketch show Small Scenes, and has also appeared on Russell Kane’s Whistle Stop Tour, Act your Age and Arthur Smith’s Balham Bash.
Henry is one of the most sought after writers in the industry. He has written for shows including Mock the Week, 8 out of 10 Cats, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Stand Up for the Week, Big Fat Quiz of the Year, Comic Relief and Seann Walsh World, as well as for Small Scenes and Newsjack.
John Hastings has been performing stand up all over his native Canada since 2006. Since winning the 2010 Irwin Barker Canadian Homegrown Championship at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, he has been nominated for a Canadian Comedy award in the category of Best Newcomer and was named one of the five "comedians to watch" by the Canadian Comedy Network. He was the youngest featured performer at the 2011 Winnipeg Comedy Festival and was the youngest and only Canadian finalist of the 2011 San Francisco International Comedy Festival. His stand up comedy special was chosen to be the last ever, on the 15-show run of Canada’s only stand up comedy showcase program “Comedy Now.” After 6 years John also won the prestigious COCA Comedian of the year award for 2012. Now his comedic pursuits take him to the United Kingdom and he nervously okay with being here.
