News Story

Adam Bloom is one of Britain’s most inventive award winning comedians. He has performed sell-out solo shows at the ‘96, ’97, ’98, ’99, ’01, ’04 & ’07 Edinburgh Festivals as well as performing a 29 date sell-out tour of Britain. He has also sold out theatres at festivals in Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland, Wellington & Cape Town. In July 2013, Adam made his fifth appearance at ‘Just For Laughs’ in Montreal, including being part of 2004 ‘Just For Laughs Comedy Tour’, playing to 42,000 people in 17 cities across Canada. He has also written three series of ‘The Problem with Adam Bloom’ for BBC Radio 4.

In 2011 Adam provided additional material for 'The Antics Roadshow', a 48-minute TV documentary directed by Banksy. On 11 September 2015 he performed at the comedy stage at Banksy's Dismaland, the art exhibition in Weston-Super-Mare. In November 2019 he was asked to be the sole judge of Banksy's 'Gross Domestic Product' competition where Adam got to choose which of hundreds of thousands of entrants from over 200 countries won the chance to buy original Banksy art at affordable prices ranging from signed spray cans to the bullet-proof vest worn by Stormzy at Glastonbury Festival.

Adam also performed a sold out solo run at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, breaking box office records for anyone’s first ever visit to the festival.

He is quite unlike anyone else performing stand up today, utterly without peer in an industry full of talent and remains a a 'must see' act. On top of all this he has always been one the genuine nice and humble human beings you could ever wish to meet.

Dave Ward is recognisable from BBC Three’s We Are Klang and is one of comedy’s most sought after presenters, writers and comedians. Dave’s upbeat warmth and spontaneity has made him the choice host for the heats for both BBC’s New Comedy Awards and C5’s 'So You Think You’re Funny?' He’s in demand as both an MC and headliner in stand up comedy clubs across the UK and Europe. He has supported a number of major TV stand up comedians on tour, including Lee Hurst and Tom Stade.

So reliably funny and versatile he has also been selected to perform for the troops in Kuwait and the UAE.

Dave’s Edinburgh Festival show ‘The Whole Truth and Nothing But…’ was performed to great acclaim, proving his skills as a writer, storyteller and actor in addition to his stand up skills.

Si Deaves is a stand-up comedian from Southend-on-Sea, Essex and has been called ‘one of the greatest undiscovered acts in the country’ and was also described by one of his comedy heroes as ‘great and very original’.

Deaves’ exploration into the weird and wonderful things his mind does, serves as the perfect vehicle for him to exercise his dry, acerbic wit.

Si is a feature on BBC Radio Norfolk’s ‘New Comedy Voices’ show and a featured guest on Essex Radio and Funky SX.

He’s also written for BBC Radio 4’s satire show, Newsjack and he’s also very excited to be currently working on a brand new sitcom.

Twenty years ago aged 19, Adam Vincent was a fresh child prodigy becoming one of the top acts in Australia. Word quickly spread to the UK and he’s now a well loved joke machine over here too.

His talents have even been noticed in the US too when he was one of three comics chosen to represent Australia in a the highly prestigious NBC’s 'Last Comic Standing'. He’s also a well respected and regular writer for Adam Hills ‘Last Leg’ (Channel 4). Many of the jokes you hear on that show have been written by this Aussie genius.

“One of those rare comedians who make it all look so easy” The Age
