He has performed his unique brand of comedy on Sky's The Russell Howard Hour and on Comedy Central's Rob Delaney’s Stand Up Central. The latter set went viral on Facebook with 4.7m views and couniting. Rob is also the creator of The Rob Auton Daily Podcast which took home The Best Daily Podcast Award at the 2020 British Podcast Awards.
Chloe Petts is 'one of the most compelling young comics' (The Guardian) and 'clearly a rising star whose name will soon be in lights' (The Evening Standard). She has been a regular on Absolute Radio's The Frank Skinner Show, Sky Sport's World Cup Breakfast and also appeared on ITV's Jonathan Ross’s Comedy Club, ITV2's The Stand-Up Sketch Show and BBC2's Richard Osman’s House of Games. She is a co-founder of The Lol Word, a queer comedy collective that hosts sell-out monthly London nights, boasting the finest female and non-binary queer acts on the circuit.
In his new show, award winning comedian Alfie Brown is showing signs that he probably can't have a healthy relationship and proceeding down the road with him would be emotionally dangerous. But what are these signs? Alfie Brown is the most hated man in an internet forum that he is not even the main subject of. But perhaps reading the worst things about yourself can be an educational experience? Is the digital age turning us bad, or is it merely shining a light on the bad previously unseen?

You might have seen him on Scared of the Dark, Would I Lie to You, Have I Got News for You, The Royal Variety, QI, Blankety Blank, The Last Leg, and tons more as well.
He's been called an 'overnight success' - even though he's been doing stand-up for yonks!
Chris McCausland is hitting the road again with another masterclass in stand-up comedy that has literally been yonks in the making.
Suitable for ages 16+ years.
On his sixth UK tour, the comedian tries to make sense of the current cultural and political scene with his playfully provocative brand of humour.
Whether it's the dire blandness of the two main parties or the shamelessly shoe-horned right-on messages in adverts and films, Geoff continues to tread in areas much of comedy leaves well alone.
But this time around he also has a mission. As well as casting his everyman eye over what's happening in wider society, Geoff is trying to unpick what's happening with your average bloke. Remember them?
It’s been a rough couple of years for blokes. Toxic masculinity has grabbed all the headlines and ruined it for communal garden geezers, who have been put under the microscope like never before. At first glance, there’s not much to examine – there’s no Bloke 2.0.
Taking up his own bloke’s-eye-view, Geoff can see that despite the social media vortex, your man in the street, average Joe, man on the Clapham Omnibus and your John Smiths just keep plodding on, fuelled by a diet of football, sheds, super-hero films, sporting autobiographies, wearing socks at all times and strategically burying feelings when necessary.
However, under the paraphernalia of manhood and the sometimes basic, even primal, behaviour of dads and lads, Geoff can see that there is something mysterious and definitely non-toxic going on.
A kindly and funny stock-take of both himself and his fellow man, Geoff unlocks some of the more complicated behaviour of your husbands, dads and brothers.
'He has become one of our most refreshingly funny comedians of any stripe' ★★★★ The Times
'He’s a class act with a mature, sharp take on modern politics' Sunday Times
Double Emmy Award winner and star of 'Smack The Pony' Fiona Allen is touring her debut stand-up show.
Like most working mums, since her children were born she hasn't had a moment for herself. Now free, she has tried new hobbies, new places, even attempting to get fit - difficult when your spirit animal is a sloth!
With nowhere left to turn she decided to go on the road as a stand-up. A show about family, marriage, and things that truly annoy her. It's a show for everyone, even those passive-aggressive school mums...
