Host – Big Lou

Manchester based Big Lou, is a well known face on the comedy scene who has a commanding stage presence matched by his punchlines and timing of their delivery.

Big Lou has played most of the premier comedy venues in the North West and beyond.

Big Lou, a robust gag-merchant, the material is original as well as punchy, while Lou is blessed with funny bones that kept the laughs coming”Steve Bennett CHORTLE: The UK Comedy Guide


Phil Chapman

Phil is an exciting act on the UK comedy circuit. He is also a talented Host & Compère and presenter and a gifted voice over artist.

Phil’s happy-go-lucky style and mischievous on-stage persona, delights audiences far and wide.

Phil began performing comedy in 2006 and after establishing himself on the local circuit, he began travelling further afield and is now a regular compère as headlining at a number of independent comedy nights.


Adam Staunton

A confident and demanding stage presence has seen scouse funnyman Adam Staunton perform alongside some of the biggest names in comedy, including John Bishop and Sarah Millican.

“What he lacks in height he certainly makes up for in talent, getting the biggest laughs of the night” – ThreeWeeks

“Had the crowd laughing from the word go” – Ashley Penny, Haxed.co.uk

“One of the breakthrough talents to emerge from the North West’s comedy circuit” – Plymouth Herald


Mike Wilkinson

Mike started his career by reaching the finals of the So You Think You’re Funny new act competition in 2000 and being a finalist of the City Life Comedian of the Year for North West acts the following year.

Now he’s a regular on the circuit and has supported such comedy greats as Peter Kay, Johnny Vegas, Ross Noble, Dave Spikey and Jason Manford on their UK tours.

Overflowing with down to earth Northern charm, Mike has a wonderful laid-back style. The laughs come thick and fast with Wilkinson’s dry humour and razor sharp wit…but hecklers beware, that cheeky grin can lash out and crush a heckler at lightening speed.

As well as being very funny, Mike is also a talented musician and plays the piano and guitar.

Mike has performed on several TV and radio shows including Gagging For It (Granada), Live From the Albert Dock (Mersey TV) and Running Late (BBC).

When he’s not killing it on the comedy scene, he can be found working on his farm rearing his own hens, and often brings a gift of a few fresh eggs to the show.
