HEENA PATEL

Heena Patel abandoned the Black Country in favour of Manchester in search of adventure and beautiful women, but all she got was wet feet and boys. Sitting uncomfortably between the PC Brigade and Bleeding Heart Liberals i.e. a rock and a hard place, she desperately searched for a cushion. Instead she found stand-up comedy. It helped.

KATE MCCABE

American comic Kate McCabe now resides in Manchester, England. She's performed in NYC, DC, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and throughout the UK. When not performing stand-up, she also writes and performs with Manchester-based sketch group The Tourists.

SARAH EMMOTT

Sarah was dubbed as “the love child of Bill Hicks and Lee Evans” whilst performing a sold out comedy tour ‘The Speed of Dating’. She’s gigged at Laughing Cows, the Frog and Bucket and recently appeared in Channel 4 comedy FRESH MEAT.

JONATHAN MAYOR – HOST
