Nabil Abdulrashid

Youngest Black Comic at the Hammersmith Apollo

“The name Nabil Abdulrashid basically means… that my phone calls are monitored. The annoying thing about being a Muslim in 21st century Britain is you know that MI5 and the Home Office listen in on your phone calls – but they don’t go halves on the bill!”

Book Nabil Abdulrashid.

Roisin Conaty

Comedic Star from 8 Out of 10 Cats

“I would say my strengths will be, ah, my dexterity at mathematics and linguistical skills. My weaknesses are: I’m a liar.”

Book Roisin Conaty.

Nina Conti

Talented Ventriloquist

“(NINA) ‘Can you not deconstruct the act so early on?’ (MONKEY) ‘What, do they think that you’re talking to a real monkey?’”

Book Nina Conti.

Jack Whitehall

Versatile Comic, Presenter & Event Host

“I find adverts at the moment particularly annoying, like the banking adverts, because they’re trying to portray bankers as nice people… You walk up to the till, it’s like, ‘ooh, how was your holiday?’, I went camping. ‘Ooh, why did you go camping?’, Because YOU lost all of my money.”

Book Jack Whitehall.

Jason Manford

Comedy Icon & TV Panel Regular

“I’m getting my wife a wooden leg for Christmas. It’s not her main present, just her stocking filler.”

Book Jason Manford.

Hugh Dennis

Star of Outnumbered

“(Donald Trump’s) plan if he becomes President is, he’s gonna build a 2,000-mile-long wall between the US and Mexico. So, he’s gonna built a great wall to keep people out, and at the same time, his next point was he’s not going to be influenced by China!”

Book Hugh Dennis.

Jimmy Carr

Presenter of 8 Out of 10 Cats

“My favourite road sign is ‘Falling Rocks’. What exactly am I supposed to do with that information? They may as well have a sign saying, ‘Random accidents ahead’ [or] ‘Life’s a lottery, Be lucky.'”

Book Jimmy Carr.

Stephen K Amos

Comedy Compere at London’s Big Fish

“I love performing in front of all you wonderful people. But really, this isn’t all that. What I really want is my own show. But the BBC have very strict guidelines about ethnicity. Apparently, I’ve got to wait for Lenny Henry to die.”

Book Stephen K Amos.

David Mitchell

Team Captain on Would I Lie to You?

“Fish don’t blink. Which is the main eye defence. If you’re ever trying to get the eye out of a fish and it blinks… it may be a lion.”

Book David Mitchell.

Dara Ó Briain

Mock of the Week Presenter

“I just like the idea of the Queen sitting at the tennis going, ‘I’m a stamp! I’m a coin!'”

Book Dara Ó Briain.

Babatunde Aléshé

Winner of the 2019 Amused Moose National New Comic Award

“Me and my wife, you know we got a son now, he’s two, and we were like debating like; ‘do we stay in London?’. And my wife was like ‘no, no we gotta get out’. Now, we got a dilemma, you know - do we stay in London and risk our son growing up and joining a gang, or, do we leave London and risk our child growing up with a Birmingham accent?”

Book Babatunde Aléshé.
