‘Brimming with confidence, Moorhouse exudes a likeable energy that could raise the dead …His affable character has a certain old-fashioned charm, as his is the sort of personality which you instinctively trust to make you laugh – and he doesn’t disappoint… Moorhouse entertainingly recounts his tales and well-made observations… impressive indeed’ – Chortle
Described by Jimmy Carr as ‘easily my favourite comedian’, Justin has a stack of TV credits including playing Young Kenny with the tiger striped face on ‘Phoenix Nights’, ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’, ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’, ‘Dave’s One Night Stand’, ‘The Grumpy Guides’, ‘Shameless’ and ‘The World Stands Up’ amongst others as well as a role in the Ken Loach film ‘Looking For Eric’. His own Radio 4 show ‘Everyone Quite Likes Justin’ is critically acclaimed and into a second series and he is a Sony Award nominated radio presenter in his own right and a staple of Radio 5 Live’s ‘Fighting Talk’ and ’7 Day Sunday’. Plus he’s an Edinburgh Festival favourite with a slew of solo UK theatre tours under his belt. So quite the multi media sensation. He’ll be performing a preview of his forthcoming Edinburgh Festival show ‘This is what I am’.
A former Funny Women and City Life Comedian of the Year finalist as well as Hoot Best New Act, Rachel cuts a compelling onstage figure as a demure but ultimately doom-laden Mancunian with twisted imagery in droves. She details the daily woes of a young woman who believes melancholia is in her genes. Misery loves comedy just as much as company and Fairburn mines a great deal of gold out of her strife. She’ll be previewing material from her forthcoming Edinburgh Festival show ‘All the fun of the Fairburn’.

‘It was most impressive how effortlessly he commanded the crowd courtesy of some cracking gags, superb comic songs and old school onstage poise’ – What’s On
With a fabulous array of highly inventive tall-tales and gently twisted punchlines regarding relationships, fatherhood and hanging around low quality nightclubs in the grim hope of an extra curricular dalliance, Elliot’s comedic terrain is constantly entertaining. With his self-confessed oily superficial goodwill he manages to charm even the most stoic of audiences with his playful patter and side-splitting songs performed on mandolin and laced with instantly memorable couplets.
