Ian Smith

Ian Smith - Flappable

After a hugely successful debut, award-winning comedian Ian Smith (BBC2’s Popatron, BBC3’s Sweat the Small Stuff) returns with his new show.

It’s about silliness and uncertainty... or is it? (It is).

It'll be a lot of fun. Ian once had a line of dialogue in a BBC2 drama and was denied a spoon on a train – so the show has emotional depth too.

“Fantastically funny” - The Times

“Delightfully offbeat writing, a talent for sure” - Chortle

“The hour goes by in a whirlwind of hysterical laughter” - Broadway Baby


Tom Toal

Tom Toal in Prequel

Prequel is a frolicsome and poignant stand-up show from hotly tipped lovely lad Tom Toal (Eye Spy, Channel 4).

A show full of quirky gags, memorable stories and a miracle that not even the T-Dawg could have foreseen.

As seen in highly-respected Edinburgh Festival showcases such as Pleasance Comedy Reserve (2013) and AAA Stand-up (2012). Runner up Loaded LAFTA’s Search for a Star.

“Funny and touching ... humour from the heart” - Three Weeks

“One of the most promising of today’s emerging comics” - Chortle

“Toal’s ease of interacting with the audience is a true talent” - Hairline
