Our stellar line up will be:
Barry Castagnola has been performing stand-up in the UK and internationally since the late Nineties – when he blagged his way onto the stage at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. He has appeared in the Channel 4 show Experimental and presented The YES/NO Gameshow on cable channel Bravo. He is also one third of the spoof ecowarrior troupe Cyderdelic (alongside Marc Wootton and Liam Woodman), who made a six-part BBC Three series and made regular appearances on Channel 4′s 11 O’Clock Show.

Former comedy reviewer Fern Brady first tried stand up after the magazine she worked for suggested she write an article where she ‘faked it’ as a comedian. She enjoyed it so much that one year on, she embarked on a career as a stand-up. She made the final of So You Think You’re Funny at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2011, where she was placed joint third, and the finals of the Piccadilly Comedy Club new act competition in 2012.

Jim Smallman first entered into comedy at the age of 27, whilst working at the head office of Next. He attended a 12-week comedy workshop to help him with his nerves whilst giving presentations, which led to his decision to engage in comedy on a professional level.

In 2010 he picked up two awards at the Hollywood Fringe Festival: Best International Show and Best Comedy performance, both for his first full length show The Boy Next Door Gone Wrong. His 2015 show “My Girls”, about Smallman’s wife and daughter, was nominated for best new show at the Dave Leicester Comedy Festival.

He is heavily involved in professional wrestling, and is the co-founder and ring announcer of PROGRESS Wrestling. He also previously hosted a weekly wrestling magazine show called ‘The Slam’ which aired on Sports Tonight Live. In 2013 he supported both Mick Foley and William Regal on their stand-up tours of the UK.

Tom won the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2015, was a finalist in the BBC Radio New Comedy Award 2014 and performed as part of the Pleasance Comedy Reserve showcase at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe
