Bob Mills is one of Britains most enduring stand ups. Heburst on to the London comedy scene in 1985, turning the faltering "alternative" establishment on it's head with his unique, challenging brand of laddish irreverent humour.
Bob has a string of acclaimed TV & radio shows to his credit. Best known for the late-night cult show In Bed With MeDinner, in which he commented on documentary video footage. He also hosted ITV's daytime game show Win Lose Or Draw, as well as LWT’s There's Only One Brian Moore and Dial Midnight, plus Not A Lot Of People Know That for BBC1.
His writing career has also included the six-part comedy-drama Northern Lights, an episode of Channel 4's Shameless and the 2006 film Pierrepoint that starred Timothy Spall as Britain's last hangman
On radio Bob has presented his own shows on BBC London and he still regularly covers for Danny Baker. He's also a popular guest on 'Fighting Talk' (BBC Radio 5) & 'Loose Ends' (BBC Radio 4).

Wayne Deakin is like your funniest, cleverest drinking buddy, only more so – a local, likeable, laconic philosopher offering lightening-fast wit and inspired insights on topical events and observations of everyday life.
He’s a regular of Carolines and the Improv in New York, The Laff Trax in Las Vegas, London’s Comedy Store, and Jongleurs and all leading comedy clubs throughout the UK. Wayne has performed at Montreal’s Just For Laughs, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Since winning the BBC New Comedy Award in 1998, Dan Antopolski has quickly built himself a reputation for being one of the most inventive, intelligent, edgy and unusual comics to emerge in years. Dan's quick witted mind and surreal flights of fancy have delighted both critics and comedy audiences alike. His Perrier Award nomination at the Edinburgh Festival 2001 followed a Perrer Best Newcomer Award nomination in 2000, and he also received critical acclaim for his part in the Perrier Award nominated Lee Mack's New Bits at the Edinburgh Festival 2000.
Dan's other television credits include appearances on two series of The Stand Up Show (BBC1), How To Survive (BBC Choice), Cherry Pop (UK Play) and The Perrier Awards (Channel 4). He recently travelled to Melbourne to appear in The World Comedy Series, which will be screened on Comedy Central in the USA and on The Paramount Comedy Channel in the UK.

Harriet began stand up at the turn of 2011 and it’s been a bit of a whirlwind. That year she won nationwide female comedy competition Funny’s Funny, was named Up The Creek’s One to Watch and has gone on to be a Laughing Horse and Leicester Square New Act Finalist and to win Bath Comedy Festival New Act of the Year and Brighton Comedy Festival New Act of the Year.
