In 2016, Glenn was featured on The John Bishop Show on BBC1, as well hosting a new NBC series Before The Morning After.
RAYMOND AND MR TIMPKINS REVUE This hilarious twosome tour the country, blasting their guitar and stylophone stylings, wowing rooms with super slick prop manipulation, dazzling jaded eyes with sandal based choreography that remains inimitable. Venturing as far afield as The Falklands and Oman, they provide spiritual uplift to the armed forces. Their latest foray is into radio comedy/drama. A 1930s murder mystery based in Brighton and a frankly silly retelling of the Jack the Ripper tale, have so far been forged in the red hot fires of their imaginations
LUISA OMIELAN Luisa Omielan is a stand-up, improviser and actress who has performed sold out shows around the globe, released a book, appeared on Live at the Apollo, recorded a DVD, presented Comic Relief 2017 and had her debut solo show aired on BBC1. “Omielan is crystal-clearly a mainstream star in the making” – The Guardian
DANE BAPTISTE Original, provocative and exceptionally prolific – Baptiste is already being hailed as one of the most exciting acts to break in years. The London born stand-up made comedy history in 2014 as the first black British act to be nominated for a Comedy Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He has since written and starred in his own BBC sitcom series and made numerous other TV and radio appearances. Credits include hosting Live at the Apollo (BBC Two) and Live from the Comedy Store (Comedy Central), Tonight at the London Palladium (ITV1), Mock the Week (BBC Two), Live from the BBC (BBC Two), 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4) and his own BBC sitcom, Sunny D.
PAUL SINHA Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Paul Sinha. Paul is a familiar voice on radio with appearances on Just A Minute, The News Quiz and Fighting Talk. His own Radio 4 series Paul Sinha’s History Revision won the Rose d’Or for radio comedy in 2016. A lifetime of curiosity and learning informs Paul’s comedy but now also ranks him as one of the UK’s finest quizzers. This has led to yet another concurrent career, this time as a general knowledge expert on the ITV quiz show, The Chase. A tea-time favourite, The Chase is the most watched programme on weekday, daytime television.
MICK FERRY Manchester based Mick Ferry is renowned as a fine purveyor of lugubrious surrealism and is established as one of the most sought after comics on the British and International comedy circuit.
