Stuart is an internationally award-winning comedian, writer, podcaster and host.
With a reputation for smart, accessible stand-up, Stuart’s enthusiasm and natural charm conceal a quick wit and fearlessness honed by his early career as a street performer. Surprisingly candid about his exploits, sexploits and textploits, Stuart likes to get his teeth into love, romance and the downside of getting what you want.
In addition to his stand-up credentials, recent years have seen Stuart build a reputation as a highly skilled interviewer and engaging host. His always insightful and often inspiring The Comedian’s Comedian podcast shines a light on the darkest creative secrets of his fellow comics, and is much beloved by comedy fans, performers and industry alike. Previous guests include Russell Brand, Jimmy Carr, Tim Minchin, Russell Howard, Sarah Millican and Ross Noble to name a few.
Troy Hawke is an erudite homeschooled 1930's throwback...the Errol Flynn of the high street. Educated, sophisticated, but utterly clueless. He tackles modern issues head on in his uniquely untimely manner. 'undeniably funny' (Chortle) 'mad comic genius' (The Scotsman) 'Near perfect character comedy' (The New Current)
Nominated for ‘Female Comedian of the Year‘ and ‘Show of the Year‘ at the 2017 Swedish Stand-Up Gala, Evelyn Mok is the best thing to come out of Sweden since… IKEA? A stand-up comedian and actor born in Sweden to a father from Hong Kong and a Chinese mother born and raised in India, Mok challenges pre-disposed stereotypes with an unapologetic style and sharp witted hilarity.
On television you can catch up with Evelyn on the likes of Chris Ramsey’s Stand Up Central for Comedy Central alongside the best UK comics and she was recently a guest on Nick Helm’s Eat Your Heart Out for Channel Dave. In her native Sweden, Mok has appeared on the local versions of ‘Would I lie to you‘ (Tror du jag ljuger), ‘Fonejacker‘ (Telefonpiraterna), ‘Have I got News for You’ (Hårdvinklat).
