It's said that you shouldn't meet your heroes, but it turns out as long as your hero is Norman Lovett, then it's all OK.

Acerbic and magniloquent Frenchman seeks willing, intelligent audience for one hour only of fun, adventure, maybe something more. Must have own underwear, socks and breath but be prepared to have these charmed off, laughed off and taken away respectively. Follow: @MarcelLucont
Canadian Phil Nicol’s explosive, chaotic energy sets his shows miles apart from the more commercial, safe, and observational. Get your sweaty thrills as he takes us though one recklessly wild journey through the streets of Amsterdam, and one hell of a full frontal climax. Follow @philnichol
A journey of gloriously off-beat, loud and ridiculous comedy from the king of tongue-in-cheek absurdity. Watch as this Canadian comic affectionately mocks and undercuts the conventions of stand-up as we know it. Follow: @mrTonyLaw
A genderless riot from a little old force-to-be-reckoned-with. Sanders goes hard-pedal, without too much of a fuss. Forty five jokes, six props, one hero and I dare say a bit of heartbreaking (you), groundbreaking (her). Follow: @LouSanders
Fringe veteran Phil Nichol’s manically exuberant stage presence is the stuff of legend. Nearly Gay is a rollicking rollercoaster of comedy and song covering topics ranging from dumping your girlfriend to gay spiders. Follow: @philnichol
An impulsively original show crammed full of standup, stories, songs and poems from this constant innovator. Simon Munnery is a comedian who never fails to exploit logic to it's absurd conclusion. Follow: @simonmunnery
