LEWIS SCHAFFER
A MALCOLM HARDEE AWARD WINNER.
How did Lewis Schaffer, a sharp-suited wisecracking New Yorker become described as “the new king of Soho”?
‘‘Lewis Schaffer has a unique style” - says Time Out New York –
“he can insult you and love you in the same sentence.” Most comics try to push boundaries but Lewis Schaffer pulls the rug out from under you. This is stand up in its rawest and most unpredictable form.“I love Lewis Schaffer! I love his pugnacious, in-your-face delivery. His total indifference to all things British is brilliant!”

"Both clever & hilarious in style" Edfringe review
"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED" Stoon Buxton Fringe
"Ruth's comedy is a particularly potent mix of spot-on, slightly surreal social commentary and brilliantly inventive, hummable and instantly hilarious songs." Spotlight Comedy

HILL AND WEEDON
LAUGHING HORSE NEW ACT OF THE YEAR FINALIST
Hill and Weedon: musical comedy duo, part time spider breeders and best friends!
Hill and Weedon have been tap-dancing, bell-ringing and salmon-stomping their way around the ol' comedy swimming hole for a year now, blending what is mostly regarded as human-noise with a host of other sounds, bells and whistles to create funny music for captivated audiences and empty chairs alike.
Reaching the final of the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year 2012, as well as opening for the likes of Danny Bhoy, these shirt-stained soul-men are ready and/or raring to go!
They also recycle.

RICHARD TODD
2012 AMUSED MOOSE LAUGH-OFF AWARD - WINNER
2011 LEICESTER SQUARE NEW COMEDIAN OF THE YEAR - FINALIST
“his material proves him to be an inventive comic thinker, with surrealism that creates weird imagery with robust, if unlikely, internal logic.” – Chortle
