Simon Lomas is regarded as one of the most exciting and refreshing new acts on the circuit. Already making big waves, this ungainly and socially awkward geek will doubtless go on to big things as his distinctive style is matched by superb jokes with a highly unique delivery.

She has worked alongside some of the greats of the industry and written jokes for acts as diverse as Brendon Burns and Jimmy Cricket. She is a regular at top clubs across the country and has supported acts including Scott Capurro and Rhona Cameron.
