Jay Handley

Jay emphasises being funny over being right and applies that to a range of sensitive topics other comics would shy away from. He loves nothing more than sharing wrong-headed opinions on matters he should probably leave well alone, with hilarious consequences!

'There are moments here that can go toe to toe with some of the funniest stand up skits I've seen' -

'A top class comic with a great mix of material...his gags are imaginative, polished and proper proper funny' - 4GoodComedians

'Absolutely brilliant!' - Artificial Light

'A highly funny act' - Comedy Sheep

Don Biswas

Don has gained huge admiration off all corners of the circuit.
