She has gigged around the world, including performances at the prestigious Just For Laughs in Montreal and Heidi recently supported Joe Lycett on tour.
“Dry, off-kilter humour… charming quirks and underplayed delivery” CHORTLE.
CAREY MARX: An eminently skilful comedian, Carey Marx mixes his own blend of dark humour with his mischievous and gleeful delivery. Irresistible!
“An excellent joke-writer, mixing silly puns with more transgressive ideas and evoking a ‘dirty cherub’ look when he knows he’s being naughty” CHORTLE
PAUL SINHA: A familiar voice on radio, Paul Sinha is perhaps best known for his role on ITV’s award-winning quiz show The Chase. Whilst studying medicine, in 2006 he was nominated for a Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Fringe and shortly after became a full time comic.
“In the running jokes and knowing nerdiness he threads through his stories, Sinha keeps the mood buoyant and humane” THE TIMES
SIMON BRODKIN: After three hugely successful BBC series as Lee Nelson, multiple sell-out tours and world-famous stunts, the award-winning, critically-acclaimed comedian Simon Brodkin unveils his funniest character yet… himself!
“Never less than ingenious” THE TIMES
JOHN MOLONEY: Co-founder and co-producer of Balham Comedy Festival, John Moloney is a multi award-winning comedian, headlining at all the major comedy clubs and festivals around the world and included in Channel 4’s World Top 100 Stand-Ups.
“A wondrous array of classy gags… delivered with measured dryness and quiet understatement. Masterly.” THE HERALD
