Somalian born Prince Abdi is a British Stand-Up, actor, writer and a regular on the UK comedy circuit. His versatile and unique story telling style of comedy made him the perfect choice to support Reginald D Hunter, Stephen K Amos and Dave Chappelle on their national tours. He has also performed alongside fellow comedians Chris Rock and Louis CK.
Prince has written and starred in his own television sketch for the BBC, Comedy Central and ITV, as well as comedy and drama features. He has performed on Comedy Central’s The World Stands Up, BBC Three’s Laughter Shock and ITV’s FHM Stand Up Hero. His other credits include BBC’s The Wall, Channel 4’s Channel 4 Presents, BBC’s The Jason Lewis Experience and Diary of a Bad Man, Part 10.
Jonny Pelham began comedy at University and while he was there he achieved runner-up in both the coveted So You Think You’re Funny competition and The Chortle Student Comedy Awards. Since graduating university Jonny has continued to impress and was a finalist and judges choice in the BBC Radio New Comedy Awards, as well as being nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer in 2014.
2016 saw Jonny make the exciting step over to the small screen on Russell Howards Stand Up Central for Comedy Central followed by a support slot on Live At The BBC this year. Jonny has also appeared in the Viceland series, Harriet & Bobby Get Married and Plane Spotting for Turtle Canyon.
With three critically acclaimed solo shows under his belt, Before and After (2015), Fool’s Paradise (2016) and Just Shout Louder (2017), Jonny has a number of up-coming television projects in the pipe-line, including a presenting debut and bookings to write across a number of television projects.
Jessica Fostekew as MC
Jessica Fostekew exists in real life but is also a comedian, actor and writer. Since 2008 she’s been throwing this job around like you would a walnut in a sock. The Guardian say she “wears her smarts on her sleeve, great stuff” and Fest called her “consistently hilarious.”
