Currently recognisable to many as the face (and voice) of Plusnet Broadband, Yorkshireman Craig is one of the hottest talents on the UK comedy circuit.
Having started his comedy career as a resident MC at The Funny Side Comedy Clubs, he’s a master of audience interaction and comedy improvisation. He then 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 one 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 past three years he has also appeared in a comedy film alongside Adam Hills and Brendon Burns and recorded a comedy pilot for the BBC.
Eleanor Tiernan is an Irish comedian well-known among Irish audiences for her live stand up performances and her work in TV, theatre and on radio.
She was featured on Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience on Comedy Central and has played Latitude, Glastonbury, Montreal Just For Laughs and all of the top Irish comedy festivals.
Eleanor lives in the UK where she enjoys making social faux pas and losing personal items on public transport.
“Tiernan boasts a magnificent curl in her lip and snarl in her voice.” SUNDAY TIMES
“The fastest-rising comedy talent in the country” IRISH TIMES
Known for being a quick-witted MC and a superb addition to any bill, Chris Betts has received numerous plaudits for his sharp material and relaxed stage presence.
Chris Betts’ mind is a curious place, where the philosophical meets the ridiculous. His shows are a perfect balance of incisive social satire and complete silliness. He has a style that is equal parts confident, thoughtful, ridiculous and mischievous.
Betts began his comedy career in Montreal, Canada and has since performed all across Europe and North America.
“An enticing prospect, a Canadian who deals in off-kilter thoughts sharpened by the occasional prod at taboo topics.” – The Independent
“A confident style… a glint of steelier edge.” – Chortle

Phil’s playful brand of comedy is unique and infectious. With a set that blends anecdotes and observations with a healthy dose of banter, his happy-go-lucky approach and mischievous on-stage persona, delights audiences far and wide.
In addition to being a highly sought after stand-up act, playing weekends for many of the nation’s leading comedy clubs, Phil is also a talented presenter. Whether working as a host for live events (from festivals to corporate functions), presenting his own weekly radio show, or fronting a series of of videos for the Racing Post, his style is charming and engaging in equal measure.
As a comedy writer, he’s provided content for BBC Radio 4 and Radio 4 Extra and has both written and produced material for social media which has attracted over 6 million video views to date.
He’s also (almost certainly) the UK’s leading expert on Australian soap Neighbours (with a not insignificant additional penchant for Home & Away).
In 2018, Phil will be touring his debut solo stand-up show ‘The Man with The Spatula’.
