Hailing from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire (a town otherwise famous for international terrorists, fake kidnaps and ‘Britain’s Best Market’), charming northerner Craig is currentlyone 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.
Having honed his talents as an MC introducing others, in 2008 he began bringing his impressive stage presence and flair for audience banter to his very own stand-up set. Since then, his rise through the comedy ranks has been nothing short of meteoric. Within just 1 month he had reached the final of The Other Side New Act of the Year competition and within 3, the final of the coveted Hackney Empire New Act of the Year. In the last two years he has also appeared in a comedy film alongside Adam Hills and Brendon Burns and recorded a comedy pilot for the BBC.
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 pirate… no really, an actual pirate in the 2015 remake of ‘Pan’ and looking as fly as a Blaxploitation cop, we don’t think Time Out will regret their decision to hand-pick Masud Milas as ‘One to watch’.
One of the most exciting acts to emerge on the UK comedy circuit. With his 70’s flair and kick ass jacket, Masud’s intelligent addictive humour has earned him a rapidly growing fan base. He’s supported Stephen K Amos on tour, hosted his own show on Soho Radio, performed at Latitude Festival and most recently stormed the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe festival with his debut solo show ‘Routes’. Currently writing for his hotly anticipated follow-up show to showcase at the 2017 Camden Fringe Festival, Masud also has a number of other exciting writing and acting projects in development.
Andrew is a writer and comedian. He is the co-writer of internet sensation Jonathan Pie, the spoof news reporter created by Tom Walker. Andrew started writing for Pie in December 2015, and since then has collaborated with Tom on weekly online videos and a live show which toured the UK culminating in a sell-out performance at the London Palladium. Their online video responding to the US election result has had in excess of 130 million views.
Andrew recently appeared at the Soho Theatre, London, in his fifth solo stand-up show Future Tense. Andrew’s previous solo stand-up shows are Minimalism!, Zero Tolerance, Whatever it Takes, and Crash Course in Depravity. All five of his solo shows have run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
His plays include Borderland (national tour for 7:84, Scotland), Jimmy Murphy Makes Amends (BBC Radio 4) and The Second Mr Bailey (BBC Radio 4). He is currently working on a new play Reacher’s Point which will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 2017.
He has worked on a number of musicals with Craig Adams, including adaptations of Terry Pratchett’s Soul Music (Rose Theatre, Kingston), Carlo Collodi’s The Adventures of Pinocchio (Castle Theatre, Wellingborough), and Dodie Smith’s The Hundred and One Dalmatians (Castle Theatre, Wellingborough). Last year he adapted Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels for the Lyric Theatre, Belfast, in collaboration with platinum-selling singer/songwriter Duke Special. Andrew and Duke Special are currently working on an adaptation of Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn for the Lyric Theatre, Belfast.
Ross Smith is a Charming but pedantic stand up and MC, specialising in deconstructing absurd ideas or magazine headlines, exploring self and unrelatable relatable material.
In 2015 Ross was a semi finalist of so you think youre funny. in 2016 he MC’d a Brighton Fringe compilation show and also completed his first Edinburgh run with his show ‘SPACE CAT PASTA BAKE’.
