Alistair is a core member of The Cutting Edge team at London's Comedy Store and has made numerous radio and television appearances around the world. A regular at corporate events and festivals, he 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. No More Stage Three was then invited to the 2016 Perth Festival in Australia before a European tour and dates at London's prestigious Soho Theatre. 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.

Alongside former Perrier nominee Nick Revell, between 2011 and 2015 Alistair co-produced, wrote and performed in 'No Pressure to be Funny,' a monthly topical show and podcast presented by LBC's James O'Brien, described by The Daily Telegraph as 'the fringe's answer to Question Time' and by The Observer as one of the top ten podcasts of 2015.
Alistair also regularly reviews restaurants for his Food Ponce blog.
ERIC PATRICK - Travelled, weathered, and cultured, Eric Patric’s comedy is as varied as his life experiences. A former resident of 6 different countries, Eric has finally settled in London, one of the few cities in the world that can keep up with his energy. He has traveled the world, learning languages, 4 but who’s counting, and performing stand-up to crowds around the globe. From Johannesburg to Bucharest, Eric’s award winning, high energy doesn’t seem to have borders. With a range from edgy to silly, provocative to obscure, his shows are all-around fun. All around the world.
