Jake Lambert fell into a career as a stand up after gaining a following on Twitter under the pseudonym @LittleLostLad and deciding to put down his iPhone and pick up a microphone. It has proven a great choice with him making it to the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedy Award within six months of his first gig, allowing him to go on to perform on both BBC Radio 4 and Radio 2.
Jake’s joke-writing has lead him to write for shows such as 8 Out of 10 Cats, BBC’s Mock The Week, and E4’s Virtually Famous.
“He’s got gags to burn, and can weave them seamlessly into his routines… he’s a talent” – Chortle
‘Guilty pleasure’ (Daily Record), Stephen Bailey is a comedian, television personality and writer, whose brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the most sought after acts on the UK comedy circuit today. He is ‘annoyingly sharp’ (The New Current) and audiences relate to his sassy style as he takes to the stage with ‘fantastic natural wit and charisma’ (Edinburgh Festivals).
“Bailey dominates the stage” - Chortle
James Gill (MC)
