Nik Coppin – A stand-up comic for more than 20 years, Nik Coppin has performed all over the world and developed an international cult following. He has performed many solo shows at the Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringe Festivals, New Zealand and Melbourne International Comedy Festivals, all over Australia and the inaugural Hollywood Fringe Festival in Los Angeles, to critical acclaim. 

His confident, affable and energetic style of comedy is quick to build audience rapport, as he talks about subjects as wide-ranging as human nature, his experiences in The Antipodes, Europe and Asia, his knowledge of wildlife, superheroes, current affairs and his mixed-race upbringing in London. His mother is English and his father is from the Caribbean island of Barbados. 

Michael Fabbri has been a stand up since 2003 and regularly performs at major comedy clubs throughout the UK and all over the world. He has worked as a writer for Radio and TV and recently had his own stand up series: ‘Dyslexicon’ on BBC Radio 4. He has performed several solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and worked as a support act for Micky Flanagan, Lucy Porter, and Stephen K Amos. He has an affable and electric style of comedy, with material that ranges from the cerebral to the smutty. 

Arielle Souma was a ‘Fresh Comedian of the Year’ finalist in 2016 and since then has been nominated and a finalist for numerous awards including the  BBC Comedy Awards, ‘So you think you’re funny’ and most recently Leicester Comedy Awards.

“Arielle Souma is just what the comedy industry needs and should be forced upon every audience until they buckle under her spell” – Frankie Boyle
