James Acaster: Cold Lasagne I Hate Myself 1999.

Looking around my bedroom now I’m counting four deodorants. Only one of them contains anything but I don’t know which one. I don’t know why I’m not throwing deodorants away once I’ve finished using them. They’re all roll on though so that makes me feel a bit like a grown up at least. Anyway, on top of this palaver, I’ve got to write another show and while this deodorant thing makes for a novel blurb it’s certainly not making it in. But it should give you an idea of where I was at when writing said show so you can probably expect a similar tone. I decided on the title when I was drunk. .

Evelyn Mok: Bubble Butt.

After an eventful year, Evelyn's feeling the paradigm shift and trying to figure out her place in this brave new world. In this much-anticipated second hour, the sharp-witted comedian explores her agency, the third-culture-kid-experience, weight loss and what this shift means for her as a woman of colour. .

Seen on Chris Ramsey's Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and Rhys Darby's Furious Andrew (Channel 4). Winner: Best Newcomer, The Pleasance Indies Awards. BBC New Talent Hotlist 2017. 'Uncensored, unapologetic and... wildly refreshing' **** (BroadwayBaby.com). . 'Honest and revealing comedy... both poignant and funny' **** (ShortCom.co.uk). .

Nathaniel Metcalfe: Chameleon, Comedian, Corinthian and Caricature.

Mildly anticipated new show from the 'delightfully silly' (Time Out), Josh Widdicombe’s XFM Show regular, who has also been heard on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 4 Extra. Directed by James Acaster. 'Impressive' (Scotsman). 'The potential is excitingly evident' (Metro). 'There’s a touch of the Stewart Lee about his delivery... but it’s Lee on ecstasy. A friendly, jovial enthusiastic fellow' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Storytelling at its finest... His Sugar Puffs/Honey Monster comment is the stuff of dreams' **** (List). **** (ThreeWeeks). 'Comic Genius' (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Brilliant, unusual and very funny' (Josie Long). .



Evelyn Mok »
Featured on 'Chris Ramsay's Stand-Up Central' (Comedy Central), Rhys Darby's 'Furious Andrew' (C4) and BBC's New Talent Hotlist 2017, Evelyn Mok is the best thing to come out of Sweden since IKEA? Fresh off her Soho Theatre run, her "powerful debut" (Chortle) 'Hymen Manoeuvre' was "a refreshing hour of finely crafted stand-up" (★★★★ The Skinny) garnering her favourable mentions by Sarah Millican and Graham Norton also winning her 'Best Comedy Newcomer' at The Pleasance's Indies Awards. Returning with her much anticipated follow-up, Mok offers a work-in-progress that promises to be "uncensored, unapologetic and... wildly refreshing" (★★★★ BroadwayBaby).

He was the resident act at Josie Long's Lost Treasures of the Black Heart club between 2009-2017.

In August 2013 Nathaniel took his first solo show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It received lots of good press and reviews and was nominated one of the top 10 shows at that years' Amused Moose Comedy Awards.
