TOM LITTLE (ten slot) - Awards: winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2015, finalist for the BBC Radio New Comedy Award 2014.
Tom has performed as part of the Pleasance Comedy Reserve showcase at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe (‘Hilarious.’ *****, The Mirror) and then, at the 2016 Fringe, as part of the Big Value: Early Show showcase for Just The Tonic.
‘Little’s showstopping set-piece … made an immediate impact and it was no surprise that the judges felt that that he was the front runner.’ – Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke.
‘Tom’s original style and inventive material stood out in what was a stellar night of strong performances.’ – Leicester Mercury.
‘Little displayed the unhinged offbeat qualities that won over the judges last year – and rightly so.’ – Marissa Burgess, Chortle.
KATHRYN MATHER (ten slot) - In her own words "I am 24, from Rochdale and based in London. I have won Beat the Frog at the Frog and Bucket in Manchester and beat the Blackout at Up The Creek in Greenwich. I came runner up in the BBC New Comedy Award competition and I was a semi-finalist in So You Think You're Funny this year."
What Steve Bennett at Chortle said about her "She used to be a children’s entertainer, and now seems to relish the chance to explore darker thoughts her old job would never allow. ‘My favourite thing about a terrorist attack….’ starts one routine. Her black humour certainly hit a chord with the room, who voted her the World Series champion of 2017."
