Failed singer/musician and doomed to a life of temping, Keith Carter is now a professional character comedian, actor and writer. His seventh comedy gig was as a finalist for the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2001, since then he has traveled throughout the world, supporting many top comics such as Ricky Gervais and Johnny Vegas and has won several awards including Liverpool Echo Comedian of the Year in 2003 and North West Breakthrough Comedian of the Year in 2005. Capital of Culture judge, Sir Jeremy Isaacs was quoted in the news as saying, ‘He helped Liverpool win the bid,’ after seeing Carter’s comic creation and Liverpool cult hero, ‘Nige’ perform at the cultural bid show for the judges.

Dave Williams has been a full-time comedian since 1998 and is booked for both compering and sets by a wide range of bookers and venues including the Comedy Store, Jongleurs, Rawhide (Liverpool), Frog and Bucket (Manchester), Hyena (Newcastle).He has performed overseas in Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha and Australia, including a week headlining the Sydney Comedy Store.

He performed an updated café themed show, 24 Hour Latte People, at the Manchester Comedy Festival in 2007

Josh Pugh started his stand up career in May 2014 when he exploded onto the scene by winning a gong show in his first ever gig.

Since then Josh has continued to follow that explosion up with a series of sustained artillery attacks in the form of open spots around the west midlands as he does this with a confident and clever writing style that takes you off on glorious tangents.
