Goodness me, those comedy know-it-alls… Y’know, the people who ruin every joke on TV because they’ve heard it before, or can’t helping saying they spoke to Joe Lycett in a bus queue? They’re the worst. They know all the best new comedians before anyone else.
Well, thanks to us, you’ll beat that Comedy Big Head at their own game! And if you think you don’t know any, that means it’s you. In which case, let’s make you even more insufferable, with a look at the freshest stand-ups on the UK scene.
Edinburgh Fringe 2018 was a landmark moment for Ms. Pattison, who caused as much of a stir as a wind-blown kilt with her show Peachy. Critics and audiences loved it. We’re absolutely certain you will too. She’s made time to debut on Comedy Central at the Comedy Store, as well as her own BBC-backed podcast Ed and Lauren Get On. She’ll be coming to NextUp very soon, so cancel your plans and book in a date with your sofa.

You’ll be mad for Helen if, well, you’re a little bit mad… She’s definitely on the more twisted branch of the comedy tree. But that’s a glorious thing, right? For a while now, she’s been making heads and punchlines spin with her (ahem…) graphic material. And we don’t mean she uses colouring books either. If you like screwball surrealism, head to this lady on the circuit.
Get a flavour of her mock-cookery lesson:
Fringe 2018 gave us a lot of laughs from many strange corners. Alison Thea-Skot was there, improvising the hell out of her cast of characters. It was an experience, for sure – we wish you could’ve been there to see the crowd jump and giggle a little nervously. We won’t blame you for feeling a bit on edge as you watch her, mainly because she’s as fearless as a kamikaze pilot. See for yourself…

Just a heads up we filmed Alison at The Edinburgh Fringe too! Coming soon to a screen near you…
Juice is a show that’s been squeezed to perfection. Mawaan would be too modest to say that, if you ask him, but he’d also be too busy stuffing himself into another barmy costume to reply. There are real, hilarious stories at the heart of this act; he’s far from a novelty wind-up. Whether you’re in a relationship, hopelessly single, or seesawing between two cultures (amen to that…), he’s got a tale you’ll recognise in your own experience.
