ALISTAIR BARRIE
 
Comedian, actor and writer Alistair Barrie is a core member of The Cutting Edge team at London's Comedy Store and has taken seven solo shows to the Edinburgh Festival. His 2012 show Urban Fogey and 2015 show No More Stage Three were both runner up for 'Best Show' at the Fringe in the Amused Moose Laughter Awards, and No More Stage Three came to Theatre Severn in 2016. He also appeared in the hit plays Breaker Morant with Adam Hills and Coalition with Phill Jupitus, which transferred to London after its Edinburgh run. He created and compered Bye George, the comedians' farewell to George W. Bush, at the Southbank's Queen Elizabeth Hall in 2009. He has also written for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky, Radio 4 and a number of other comedians.

CERYS NELMES
West Country girl Cerys keeps busy with stand up, TV warm up, acting and presenting. She's a resident MC at the Comedy Grove clubs all over the South West, appears nationally at the likes of Jongleurs and Glee Club, and counts appearances on Casualty, Trollied & Stella amongst her TV credits.

SOL BERNSTEIN
Yes it's true! After 25 years of semi retirement, playing nursing homes, SOL BERNSTEIN is back where he belongs, in smokey nightclubs and provincial theatres performing to drunks. The legend that is Sol Bernstein escaped the Pogroms in Russia, the Nazis in Germany, and went on to become the World's 1st all-round entertainer. He's a song and dance man, a comedian, a magician, an actor, a Jazz musician (Sol was rated "BEST TRIANGLE" player in the USA in the 50's by performers like Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington ). His charisma, his style, his catch phrase "why don't you put on a tie" his chutzpah, put it all together and you see the magic that is Sol Bernstein.
 
Most young performers will mention Sol as a major influence. A major influence to do what, we aren't sure, but an influence never the less!
