Your acts for the evening...
Standing at 3' 6" tall, Tanyalee is the Ferrari of comedy - low to the ground and kind of racy.
Tanyalee Davis is standup comedian who inspires, enlightens and entertains her audiences while headlining at comedy clubs, colleges, and comedy festivals throughout North America, the UK, and other parts of the world with her own unique perspective and somewhat racy brand of comedy.
2015 saw her UK Television prime-time debut when she appeared on BBC1’s The John Bishop Show, quickly followed by her amazing debut on BBC2's Live At The Apollo 2015 Christmas Special. Both of these dazzling performances saw her stock as a headline comic rise to even greater heights!
“Tanyalee Davis is simply one of the funniest people I know. She has a unique view of the world and if you haven't seen her I urge to go, sit back, relax and laugh.” - JOHN BISHOP
“Joan Rivers meets a pile-driver”- THE SCOTSMAN
“Tanyalee Davis is a punch-packing stand-up” - KATE COPSTICK
The Monks are Kevin Moore and Yazz Fetto. They think they can lay claim to being the only Christian comedy sketch group in the UK. As such, they not only do shows in clubs, pubs and small sweaty comedy rooms but also chapels, churches and small sweaty vestries.
Each of the commandments gets the comedy sketch treatment; some get more than one, making this perhaps one of the best value sketch comedy shows ever! Even penny pinching, backstabbing disciple Judas Iscariot would approve!

Comedy songstress Ruth Cockburn is a familiar face on the UK circuit and UK comedy festivals. A critically acclaimed writer, her solo shows have earned her numerous nominations and awards. Her writing has even travelled across the globe after one of her plays was picked up by an Australian Theatre Company and performed down under. Her most recent solo show Love Letters From Blackpool has been commission by the The Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester and is also due to tour the UK (inlcuding The Constitutional on 20 April!), as well as appearing at all the major UK comedy festivals.
A circuit regular performing for a host of established booker’s and clubs, Ruth has built up a reputation amongst many as being a very safe pair of hands, capable of handling any audience. She brings together a very likeable stage persona, cleverly written material, with a slightly naughty twist. To top it off Ruth also throws in a couple of cleverly written, hilarious songs to make her set a laden with laughter.
Not only has Ruth been busy performing on the circuit but she has also provided tour support for Terry Alderton and American Drag Queen superstar Trixie Mattel.
"An intriguing personality" - CHORTLE
‘Plain and simple she’s just funny’ - TERRY ALDERTON
"Ruth has charm" - THE SCOTSMAS
