Rahul Kholi
Rahul Kohli has fast become one of the most captivating acts on the circuit.  As one of the few Asians who grew up in the far north of England (Newcastle Upon Tyne), he’s been blessed with a view of the World that upends ethnicity, culture and class. Combining ‘superb political comedy’ with surreal storytelling, in just a few short years, Rahul has gained a CV to be envious of. From his Edinburgh Fringe debut: Newcastle Brown Male, to his most recent show: All My Heroes Are Dead in Jail Or Touched Up Your Nan, Rahul’s solo shows have gained critical acclaim, including: BBC Radio 4, and the Huffington Post’s Pick of the Fringe. As well as several Radio and TV Appearances for BBC Radio 4, and BBC Big Asian Comedy Night among many others, and appearing at the biggest comedy clubs around the World (Laugh Canvas India, ComedyHuis Holland, Stand Edinburgh), Rahul is also an award winning comedian, winning the NATYS, formerly the Hackney New Empire of the Year Award.‘Inspiringly Intelligent’ – Paul Sinha

Nina Gilligan
Award Winning Comedian Nina Gilligan exploded on to the comedy scene in 2011 and is now a regular on the UK circuit performing at clubs and venues all over the UK. She was a finalist in English Comedian of the Year 2016.

Equally at home in a Theatre, Arts centre or Social club audiences warm to her instantly. Sometimes outrageous, always hilarious, observational and Storytelling comedy for all. A persona you will fall in love with. A bolshier Mrs Merton she’s not one to suffer fools lightly so watch out for a razor sharp wit used at will.

An act that will leave you breathless and shouting for more! Slick. Polished with great writing.
