Show details:

Danny Posthill

Danny Posthill

Britain's Got Talent finalist Danny Posthill’s career began at the young age of 16, making people laugh with hilarious impressions at his school talent show. Since then, comedy became Danny’s passion.

Skilled with a versatile act that caters for all audiences, Danny offers unbeatable stand up and a range of impressions such as Billy Connolly, Jimmy Carr, and Lee Evans, to guarantee an unforgettable night of laughter.

Danny has performed all around the world, from the Mediterranean to South America, and is gaining recognition on the UK circuit as one of the most promising British comedians.


“Impressionist Danny Posthill brings a bevy of other characters with him including Billy Connolly, David Beckham, Gary Barlow, Michael McIntyre, John Bishop, Alan Carr – and is funny in his own right too” - Richard Batson, EDP24

“Effortless performer of the highest quality” - Joke Club Comedy Clubs

“What a talented comedian” - Tim Vine

Lloyd Griffith

Lloyd Griffith

Since starting comedy in 2009, Lloyd has quickly established himself as one of the most natural, brightest and original comedians on the circuit. In 2011 he was selected to perform as part of the prestigious Edinburgh package show, Big Value Comedy Showcase. A year later in 2012 he performed as part of the sell out package show AAA Stand-up Late in the Pleasance Courtyard and in 2013 supported Rob Beckett on his sell-out UK tour, before performing his debut Edinburgh Fringe show in 2014.

Grimsby-born Lloyd now regularly performs at some of the largest clubs in the UK, including Just the Tonic, Off The Kerb, Highlight, BBC Comedy Presents, Amused Moose and many others, and is resident MC at a number of comedy clubs in London and the south of England.

Lloyd is also a huge football fan and has written, produced and starred in a number of viral football videos. The most recent one for FIFA 16 (EA Sports) has been viewed over 1.7 million times and was broadcast on Sky Sports five times over a period of a week. He then was a guest on Soccer AM in January 2016, talking about his love of football and how he is mates with Lionel Messi.


“It’s clear from outset the Lloyd Griffith has star quality. His stories are told with a certain brand of self-deprecating confidence that mean you can’t help but laugh out loud along with him. Intensely likeable, Griffith has a twinkle in his eye and the best baritone I’ve ever heard” - Three Weeks

“Inherently funny... very neat lines in his comic repertoire” - Chortle

“Griffith in particular was absolutely outstanding” - Broadway Baby

Steve Day

Steve Day

Steve Day describes himself as Britains only deaf comedian, and if there are any others then he hasn't heard. Actually there are a couple of others who have started since he wrote that joke, but it's only a joke after all.

For the past dozen years Steve has been performing to huge laughter around the country and abroad - well, they tell him the laughter was huge to humour him, he doesn't know either way.

Married with five children (a fact nothing to do with not being able to hear the word 'No') Steve has been described as 'warm and witty' by the Scotsman and has received many other rave reviews whilst performing shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Chortle gave him five stars in 2007 for Deafy's Island Discs, a show The Sunday Times called 'Funny and Moving'.


“Revelatory and very funny” - The Guardian

“Warm, funny, frank and thought-provoking” - The Scotsman

“Wonderful” - Bath Chronicle

Craig Murray

Craig Murray

Hailing from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire (a town otherwise famous for international terrorists, fake kidnaps and 'Britain's Best Market'), charming northerner Craig is currently one of the hottest rising talents on the comedy circuit.

Craig cut his comedy teeth as resident compere at award-winning London club The Funny Side... of Covent Garden sharing a stage with some of the very best comedy acts in the business including Harry Hill, Stewart Lee and even Hollywood legend Robin Williams. He rapidly became a master of the compere's art; able to turn any crowd from a lacklustre mob into a clapping, cheering, delirious audience ready to laugh all night.

An instant crowd pleaser with a charismatic, mock-confrontational style, Craig is now a highly sought-after act and compere, performing all over the UK.


“...a great line in Northern humour” - Spoonfed

“Craig Murray knows his comedy roots... his material was well presented [and] recognisably funny” - Chortle

“Bloody funny” - Jo Brand
