Jim Smallman
Jim Smallman is a stand-up comedian, radio presenter and voice-over artist. He first entered into comedy at the age of 27, whilst working at the head office of Next plc. He attended a 12-week comedy workshop to help him with his nerves whilst giving presentations, which lead to him decided to engage in comedy on a professional level.

In 2006 Smallman was a finalist in the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year competition. He was also a finalist in the Leicester Mercury/Equity New Comedian of the Year 2007.

In 2009 his first hour-long show, The Boy Next Door Gone Wrong, was nominated for the Best Debut Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival. The show drew on past experiences with alcoholism and an addiction to painkillers. In 2010 he picked up two awards at Hollywood Fringe; Best International Show and Best Comedy performance, both for The Boy Next Door Gone Wrong. He also became the Saturday morning presenter at BBC Radio Leicester.

In 2011, Jim took his second full-length show 'Tattooligan' to the Edinburgh Fringe. As a publicity stunt he had the show title tattooed across his stomach, and for the year was a columnist for Skin Deep magazine. In 2012 he made his first appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live's Fighting Talk, before taking his third full-length show 'Let's Be Friends' to the Edinburgh Fringe. In both 2011 and 2012 Smallman performed at The Gilded Balloon. 'Tattooligan' was filmed as a DVD / digital download in September 2011 in Leicester.

2013 saw further appearances on Fighting Talk, plus a weekly news review slot called 'All the Small Things" on XFM. Jim became a blogger for The Huffington Post in the UK, and supported Mick Foley on his stand-up comedy tour. Jim is currently planning two shows for the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014, one aimed at children and one concerning his impending marriage.

Jim Tavare
Jim Tavaré is an internationally acclaimed actor and comedian with a highly distinguished career.
Jim co-wrote and starred in ITV's 'The Sketch Show', which won a BAFTA and syndicated worldwide. To date, ʻThe Sketch Showʼ has been remade for audiences in seven different countries.
He wrote and starred in six highly acclaimed short silent films for BBC Television (UK) called 'Jim Tavaré Pictures Presents'. This was followed by his own comedy sketch series 'The Jim Tavaré Show', a thirteen part TV series co-written with Ricky Gervais, who also starred.
Following three appearances on The Royal Variety Performance, Jim performed at several private functions for the British Royal Family, including a private Christmas party for HRH Prince Charles and a Gala held at Highgrove in front of Her Majesty the Queen and thirteen Crowned Heads of State. Jim is renowned for being Prince Charles favourite comedian.
His success as a stand-up comedian spread to the United States when he became winner of ‘International Starsearch’ (USA).  He went on to appear at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, which caught the attention of hit CBS show ‘Wings’ producers. He was invited to appear in an episode of the show which was specially written and based around his comedy act.
Jim holds the distinction of being the only overseas act ever to reach the final of NBC's ‘Last Comic Standing’.
As a finalist, he embarked on a 63 date national US tour with NBC as part of the ʻLast Comic Standing World Tourʼ. 
Jim Tavaré’s major film debut came when he played Tom the Innkeeper in 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban'. He has since made several film and television appearances, including roles on 'Californication' (Showtime), ‘Chuck’ (NBC), Tosh.0 (Comedy Central), and Jimmy Kimmel Live! (ABC).

Steve Shanyaski
A bucketload of charm and some surreal and silly material coupled with his brilliant comedy songs make Steve the ideal booking for any evening.

Steve walked out on a mind numbing office job and straight onto a comedy stage in the beginning of 2003, and has not looked back since. 

Within half a year of his comedic birth he had made it through to the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedian of the Year, the North West Comedian of the Year Final, and later that year he had the honour of appearing on the BBC7 Radio Showcase “Spanking New”. 

Since then he has added to his list of accolades by being named the Holsten Pils Comedian of the Year 2005, and the Birmingham Comedy Festival’s best breaking talent 2005.

Steve has more strings in his bow than Nicanor Zabaleta (THE world famous harpist!). A very charismatic and silly performer with a natural talent for spinning yarns, a fertile imagination, and a skilled musical background, his act combines as many elements as Steve can muster. 

Liam Pickford
 Liam Pickford is a 24-year-old stand-up from Ashton-under-Lyne who for two years has been confusing and amusing crowds on the Northwest circuit. Winning the Manchester heat of BBC Radio’s New Comedy Award in 2012 and in the same year making the semi-finals of industry springboard the Chortle Student Comedy Awards, Pickford has continued to impress in the early stages of his career.
