Tom Toal, native to Bexleyheath in South East London, is an accomplished comedian, writer, and actor. His star is on the rise as he has earned widespread acclaim for his debut show, On The Scrapheap at Edinburgh and Leicester Festivals in 2010. This show detailed the break-up of Tom’s 6-year relationship. His subsequent performance Rom-Coms and Revolutions was a full house hit.

Tom Toal has proved his versatility by his ability to easily cater to whatever audience he is faced with. In 2013, he took the stage at The Comedy Reserve alongside The Pleasance for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and a year after that made it as a finalist for Best Comedy Show at the Amused Moose Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Furthermore, in March 2017 he opened gigs for Rob Brydon during his tour across the country. Moreover, Tom can accommodate any kind of event – from album launches for Post Rock bands to hosting benefit nights for socialist groups and everything in between.

“Fizzing with ideas and great jokes… a unique angle on every topic. Simultaneously smart and silly.” – Chortle

Philipp Kostelecky

Philipp Kostelecky’s originality, international appeal, and first-class physicality have shot him up the comedy ladder, reaching the final of the 2022 Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year competition and winning Best New Comedian at the 2021 Southend Comedy Festival. 

Raised by an American-Slovenian mother and absentee Austrian father, Philipp uses his unorthodox cultural background and family structure to pose as an external observer and cultivate an offbeat socio-political perspective.

“Pleasingly original” – Chortle

Billy James is a Southampton based comedian who in 2022 was a finalist in both the Bath Comedy Festival New Act competition, and the Victorious Festival Comedy Star 2022 comp.

AJ Mann

AJ Mann is relatively new to the comedy circuit but, with his insane passion for making people laugh and feel uncomfortable at the same time, he’s quickly establishing himself as a stand-up comedian of note; one to watch for the future.

Ben Morgan

Ben is reaching 30, and still getting his act together in a world that makes no sense to him. What do you mean you can’t walk through a drive-thru?!

He is taking us back to a much simpler time. A time when three cheese straws were only a pound. Ben’s warming, light-hearted and relatable stand-up hilariously highlights everything that should be simple but isn’t.

Let’s laugh over some cheesy baked goods (vegan cheese straws available) this Summer at The Attic in Southampton.

Ben has been around the block in comedy. He has quickly established himself as a rising star of the comedy circuit. He has performed in comedy clubs all over the country, including Hot Water Comedy Club in Liverpool. He is a natural MC and always leaves his audiences wanting more.

“Ben is so likeable, warm and most importantly… Funny. The crowd were with him from the get-go and stayed with him throughout. One to watch for sure” – Paul McCaffrey

Travis Booth-Millard

After 10 years as a budding actor, Travis is now picking up his proverbial comedy boxing gloves with the hope of delivering some knock out belly-laugh blows. Let’s hope he doesn’t have to throw in the towel, in order to clean up after you wet yourself with mirth.

Michael Frankland

Award winning comedian as seen on NextUp, 
Michael Frankland has been entertaining crowds across the UK as well as France, Budapest, New York and Luxembourg. With his quick wit and self-deprecating humour this is not an act you’ll want to miss.

Harri Dhillon 

Harri Dhillon has been sharing his deliciously dark sense of humour on the UK stand-up scene for the past four years, including beating notorious gong shows at The Comedy Store, and Up The Creek. 
He was also accepted into the BBC Writers room, has written sketches for Radio 4, and had several short plays performed at the likes of The New Diorama Theatre, The Belgrade Theatre, The Rotunda Theatre.

Matt Roseblade

Matt Roseblade blagged his first gig by pretending to be a comedian.  He was quickly found out but also judged to be “not shit”.  Boosted by that validation, he took up stand-up as a dignified alternative to the more usual mid-life crises of younger women, older cars or golf.

300+ gigs later, he now runs & MC’s a semi-pro night (Comedy at the Fat Fox), a new-act-new-material night (Puns and Roses) and regularly gigs for Solent Comedy, Comedy Noir and Potts Comedy.

Matt is a storyteller, weaving tales even taller than he is.  He’s been a shepherd, a factory worker, a door-to-salesman and an international IT consultant.  He sold CDs to Princess Diana and supplied frogspawn to Prince Charles.  These pale into insignificance when he found out that his Mum used to go on the lash with Christopher Robin.
