Since Rob Thomas first took to the stage in 2010 he has quickly progressed to become one of the country's most promising up and coming comics.

“Bellowing, insistent, wonderful” - The Skinny

Edy Hurst

Edy Hurst

Edy Hurst is a nice boy doing the best with what he's got; a guitar, a loop pedal and a might-do attitude, combining short, punch-line filled musical comedy with a skewed oddball take on the world.

With jokes that creep up on you, Edy is fast becoming an exciting new addition to the comedy circuit with a unique and intelligent take on stand music comedy expectations.

Edy was nominated for the BBC New Comedy Award in 2017, and was a finalist for the Great Yorkshire Fringe New Act competition in the same year. He's also been a finalist in several other competitions in his time on the comedy circuit.


“An abstract guitar-playing impish minstrel of a man, Edy is a joyous comic to behold. All unabashed grins and oddball lingo he’s sure to enchant” - Manchester Wire

“Full to the brim with ideas” - Broadway Baby

“A real gem” - York Press

Pete Phillipson

Pete Phillipson

Throughout his time on the comedy circuit, Pete Phillipson has been involved in a number of competitions, including winning Mr Bens New Comedian of the Year and reaching the final of the English Comedian of the year 2014. Pete also performed a fantastically well received show at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival with fellow comic Lewis Charlesworth and recently has been lucky enough to share a bill with Ross Noble and Russell Kane.

Originally from Lincolnshire but based in Manchester Pete has been building a name for himself on the circuit as a very funny act over the last few years. Pete mixes fast paced observations and routines with wonderful characterisations, making him a hit with audiences all over the country.
