Ben is one of the most sought-after comics on the circuit and has developed a reputation for his ability to work an audience and think fast on his feet. Ben presented MTV’s “Hot” for a successful run, has performed sets for “The Stand Up Show” (BBC) and guested on “They Think It’s All Over” (TalkBack Prods for BBC1) and “Nevermind the Buzzcocks” (TalkBack Prods for BBC2).
“A cast iron guaranteed headliner” - Londonisfunny.com "Killer gags" - The Scotsman
"Truly a sight to behold" - Ed Byrne "A wonderful disgrace of a human being" - Daniel Kitson
"Recently seen supporting Ed Byrne on his national tour Ben's TV credits include "Never Mind The Buzzcocks", "They Think It's All Over" and "Mock The Week".
Michael Fabbri quickly stamped his mark on the UK circuit appearing in the 2003 final of Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny? and rapidly earned a reputation as one of the most promising up and coming comedians on the circuit. A reputation that he is living up to, regularly performing for the best clubs in the country.
With a dark and honest approach to some of life’s more touchy subjects Fabbri manages to effortlessly slip between some harsh, controversial topics to light-hearted silliness to make for a refreshingly eclectic and brilliantly funny act.
“Exceptionally funny…extremely sharp…hugely enjoyable” The Scotsman
“Startlingly insightful” The Guardian
“Hilarious, Clever, sick and completely unrepeatable” BBC Online
“One of the best up-and-coming acts around” Chortle
“Intelligence in spades…consummate idiot savant” The List
Juliet Meyers as MC
Managing to mix silliness with edginess, Juliet has a chatty style that allows her to interact with the crowd; this makes her much in demand both as a comedian and an MC. She has been bringing her own brand of hilarious, cerebral, observational, gag –driven, (mostly gender non-specific), comedy to the stage for 7 years.
“Devilish coy look, excellent material with some on the edge gags.” The Scotsman (4 star review )
“Had me in stitches with her witty observations and social judgements.” bbc.co.uk
“You changed our audience’s opinion of female comics. They loved you.” Steve Walker Knuts, Peterborough “Excellent material. Excellent with the audience” Tim Arthur, Time Out
“laugh- out loud funny, wonderfully bizarre ideas.” Chortle
