Russell Howard is one of the UK's most successful comedians. His 2011 sell-out arena tour Right Here, Right Now played to more than 300,000 fans including three sold out dates at the 15,000 seater O2 Arena. He returned to the stage in 2014 with his latest arena tour, Wonderbox, including four shows at the Royal Albert Hall and a string of international dates.
Russell is the writer and star of BBC Three's most successful entertainment show Russell Howard's Good News. The 8th series began in Spring 2013; since its debut in 2009 cumulative ratings have grown from 1.7 million a week to a peak of over 5 million. The success of the show saw it move to BBC Two in 2014.
Russell has released four bestselling live stand-up DVDs: Russell Howard Live (2008), Russell Howard Live: Dingledodies (2009), Right Here, Right Now (2011) and Wonderbox (2014). He has now sold over 700,000 DVDs and has been in the top 5 DVD comedy chart across all his stand-up titles.
"Probably the best of a new generation of comics. His mind is as sharp as a witch's nose and gags flow from him with the ease and Majesty of the river Nile."
"....a stand-up natural"

Amy Miller is a fast-rising talent on the West Coast and national scene. Originally from Oakland, California Amy found her comedy chops in the Bay Area and is still a regular at the SF Punch Line and Cobb’s Comedy Club. After a move to Portland, Amy quickly rose to the top of the Pacific Northwest comedy scene, winning Portland’s Funniest Comedian in Helium Comedy Club’s contest, as well as being voted Portland’s Funniest 2013 and 2015 in the Willamette Week.
Amy was a breakout favorite in Season 9 of Last Comic Standing. Roseanne Barr called her “a star” and a “contender for next alpha female comedian.” Keenen Ivory Wayans said she had one of the “fiercest jokes he had ever heard.” Amy is currently in LA and works comedy clubs and festivals around the country, working with headliners from Norm Macdonald to Arsenio Hall to singer Ryan Adams. You may have heard her on NPR, The Bennington Show, or Doug Loves Movies.
