Dan Evans | www.danevans.info
For over a decade Dan’s accessible but childish surrealism has delighted audiences throughout the UK and Ireland. He’s also had his grammar corrected by Dutch and German crowds; performed for chubby sweating ex-pats in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Singapore and Thailand, and is one of just two UK comics to play Hanoi, Vietnam.
He’s appeared on BBC 2’s ‘Brain Candy’, ‘Channel 5 at The Store’ and the Channel 5‘Comedy Zone’, Radio 2’s ‘Stand Up Show’ and ’28 acts in 28 minutes’ on Radio 4.

Addy Van De Borgh | http://www.addyvanderborgh.com
Addy van der Borgh has that rare talent of making people laugh as soon as he walks on stage. He is a great performer of highly acclaimed and original material, an ability noticed immediately by the BBC when he appeared on the ‘Stand-up Show’ on BBC1 after only one year as a comedian. He has subsequently appeared on ‘The World Stands Up’ and ‘Live at the Comedy Store’ for Comedy Central, and the BBC3 series from Baby Cow Productions, ‘Brain Candy’. He has also written and co-presented twenty episodes of ‘TV Meltdown’ for Sky 1 with Kirsty Gallacher (2004 / 2005), has acted in a number of voiceovers for radio and television and has appeared on many radio shows including multiple appearances on the legendary ‘Loose Ends’ on Radio 4
