Jack Campbell (MC)

Jack Campbell began performing stand-up whilst at De Montfort University, Leicester in 2010 and has been making a storm on the comedy circuit ever since.

Dubbed as '100% funny' and 'refreshingly inventive', Jack has won 2014 English Comedian Of The Year as well as being shortlisted for BBC Radio's New Comedy Award Final in the same year!

Jack's since gone on to support comedians Larry Dean, Dane Baptiste and Lusia Omielan on tour. He's also received rave reviews whilst entertaining crowds with his one-man show at Edinburgh Festival in 2015 and 2016. Jack has also performed across Europe in Germany, Estonia, Finland and Latvia as well as further afield in Australia.

English Comedian Of The Year 2014
Short listed for BBC Radio New Comedy Award Final 2014
Tour Support for Larry Dean, Dane Baptiste and Luisa Omielan
'Funny and refreshingly inventive' (House of Stand Up)
'100% Funny, gets hearty laughs' (Broadway Baby)

Lost Voice Guy (Headliner)

LVG began performing comedy in 2012.

His decision to perform standup himself came in the aftermath of a show by Ross Noble, after which LVG encountered the comedian and challenged him on the quality of Noble's impersonation of Stephen Hawking, claiming he could do a far better impersonation of the renowned physicist. To formulate his routines, LVG purchased an iPad Text to Speech app called Speak It!, which he pre-programmed with sentences based on material he created.

Following his first show, LVG adapted his routine by selecting material that had received favourable audience reaction, and adopting a style of improvisation in which he occasionally created new material onstage through his synthesiser in real time. His first successful show was at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2013.

In 2014, LVG won the BBC Radio New Comedy Awards.

In 2015, LVG began to pursue a professional comedy career, performing a new show titled Disability for Dunces as part of the Edinburgh Fringe that year. The following year, he performed a sequel of the show, titled "Volume 2", and in 2017 he launched a new show titled Inspiration Porn, which made fun of "inspirational" videos and memes about disability.

In 2018, LVG starred in Radio 4 sitcom Ability, which he co-wrote with the writer and comedian Katherine Jakeways (series 1 and 2) and Kat Butterfield and Daniel Audritt (series 3). His role involved playing the disabled 'Matt', who moves out from his parents' home to share with his best friend from school, who refreshingly treats him as an equal but is not the influence Matt's concerned parents are looking for.

In June 2018, LVG won the 12th series of Britain's Got Talent after successfully making it through the audition stages, and winning the show by the public vote.

In February 2019, LVG appeared in one episode of the BBC Three television series, Jerk.

He also released his first book, I'm Only In It For The Parking.

Harriet Dyer (Opener)

Harriet Dyer is a Cornish comedian, writer and mental health advocate known for her quirky, original and offbeat brand of comedy. She has gigged all over the world and has recently become resident MC at ROFL Comedy Club, Sheffield and at the multi award-winning mental health comedy night she founded, 'Barking Tales' in Manchester.

In 2023 she embarked on her first major UK tour with her show 'Mother', after a successful 5-day limited run at the Edinburgh Festival. "Harriet Dyer is everything I love about the Fringe. Where else could you be in a basement full of people applauding moth impressions? Nowhere, that's where" – ★★★★ Broadway Baby. The tour covered 6 UK venues including Manchester, Sheffield and Bristol before returning to her home county of Cornwall for a show in St Agnes.

In 2022 she performed her stand-up show 'Trigger Warning' at the Gilded Balloon Patter Hoose for the whole month of the Edinburgh Festival. It was one of the 'must see' shows of the Festival, described as "incredible", 'hilarious" and "mesmerising" by audiences. She received 5-star reviews from One4Review – "This is a fabulous hour from a delightful comedian with a sense of the joyful absurdity of life. Entirely charming" as well as from Neurodiverse Review – "We shouldn't underestimate the importance of Harriet Dyer's show". They also awarded her their inaugural Neurodiverse Representation Award. She featured in Marie Claire and Vogue as a festival highlight. One fan said "I came out changed and hopeful…I am in absolute awe".

Prior to this she has had another three critically acclaimed solo shows at the Festival; two of which were featured on BBC Live At The Fringe. In 2017 she was part of the prestigious Big Value Showcase for Just The Tonic which is an established showcase of the best of the new comedic talent.

In 2020 she published her debut book, 'Bipolar Comedian' a "funnier than it should be, honest tale of a bipolar, working class girl from Cornwall who overcame an awful lot of trauma to become an award winning comedian and mental health advocate". She's also written recently for both seasons of Jon Richardson's Channel Hopping on Comedy Central.

She's featured on Sarah Millican's, 'Elephant in the Room' on BBC Radio 4, Russell Howard & Friends and Jon Richardson & Friends (both on stage). Her comedy has been regularly featured on BBC Radio 4 Extra, she's been a guest host on The Jason Manford Show on Absolute Radio as well as being interviewed on Helen Lederer's 'Knock Knock' and Russell Kane's 'Evil Genius' podcasts.
