Chris Washington

With bags of northern charm, rising star Chris Washington is taking the comedy industry and audiences alike by storm. He received a sparkling nomination for the coveted lastminute.com Edinburgh comedy award for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Chris has proved he’s a definite one to watch, being likened to a “Peter Kay for the smart phone generation”. A favourite on the live circuit he’s already supported the likes of Jason Manford and Tom Stade on tour and recently co-hosted Jason Manford’s weekend radio show for Absolute Radio.

Stephen Bailey

Stephen Bailey is a comedian, television personality and writer, whose friendly and open brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the most sought after acts in UK comedy today.

His star has started to rise over the past 18 months as he has become a regular face on ITV’s Weekend with Aled & Channel 5’s Big Brother’s Bit on the Side and made guest appearances on numerous shows including ITV2’s Safeword, CelebAbility & The Great Xmas Rant, ITVBe’s Kate’s Wardrobe Secrets, W’s Celebrity Advice Bureau and Channel 5’s It’s Not Me, It’s You.

Allyson June Smith

Since 2000, Allyson June Smith has been tickling Canada’s comedy scene from the moment she put down the chalk brush and picked up a mic. The former teacher has now taken her sassy blend of in-your-face stand-up and hilariously insightful commentary to the UK and is now a regular support act for Stewart Francis and Jason Manford.

It is her genuine and unique sense of humor, combined with excellent performance timing, that has made audiences laugh. This teacher-come-comic is ready to show international audiences why she is a sought-after fan favourite.

The night will also feature a special guest performance by Forever Manchester’s Claire Lawless who will be taking on a comedy challenge raising money for Forever Manchester in the process. For more details on this and to listen to a special podcast, click here.
