Kathryn Henson

Katharyn began doing stand up comedy in New York City where she worked her way to regularly hosting and performing nightly throughout the five boroughs. She has been seen regularly at venues including but not limited to New York Comedy Club, Gotham Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, The Stand, and The Comic Strip as well as countless backs of bars, windowless basements, rooftops, and bathroom stalls. Currently based in London, Katharyn MC's and performs regularly at Top Secret Comedy Club, Vauxhall Comedy Club, Up the Creek among other clubs, dives, and holes-in-the-wall throughout the UK. Outside of stand up, Katharyn co-hosts the podcast "This American Irish Life" with husband and fellow comedian Mark O'Keeffe.

Katharyn has performed in multiple Edinburgh Fringe's receiving excellent critical review for both her performance and her debut hour "Ew Girl, you Nasty." Kate Copstick of The Scotsman exclaimed, “This show is a blast!" The Skinny awarded her **** and Pop Dust noted that "you won't see many comics like her at the Fringe or anywhere else." Chortle stated that Katharyn is "a confident, appealing presence with a backstory that makes her unique and interesting." She has hosted a show in the New York Comedy Festival three years running and formerly produced two weekly shows in New York City which she headlined.

Mark Palmer

With a comedic voice and style described by as “belly-laugh terrific…world class entertainment“, meet Comedian, Mark Palmer.

Mark Palmer is funny, and funny is the thing that matters when you’re watching a comedian. Having a comedian that can be both clean and funny, especially when looking for someone to entertain your guests or MC your event, is a rare thing. The press has described Mark as “clean, classy, clever“.

Mark’s ability to blend a theme or topic with one of today’s funniest comedy routines is unparalleled. His smart, sometimes loud and often opinionated brand of comedy has made him an audience favourite wherever he performs.
