Tanya Lee Davis is an international superstar and she may only be 3ft 6” but she gets big laughs around the world. You may recognise her from her storming sets on ‘Live at The Apollo’ (BBC1) and The John Bishop Show (BBC1).
She also starred in ‘I’m Spazticus’ (Channel 4), ‘Abnormally Funny People’ (Sky), ITV’s ‘SuperHuman: World’s Smallest People’ (ITV). But perhaps her most impressive appearance was in Austin Powers 3: Goldmember – how many comedians can say that? Her bold, saucy style often surprises and delights audiences. Its little wonder she’s one of the most sought after acts in comedy both here and across the globe because she’s one of the planet’s top comedians and this is a rare chance to see her in town.

Plus he’s had his own BBC2 sketch series ‘The Jim Tavaré Show’, co-written with Ricky Gervais, who also starred.
Following three appearances on The Royal Variety Performance his success has spread to the United States – he was the winner of ‘International Starsearch’ (USA), had an episode of NBC’s ‘Wings’ written around his act. He also holds the distinction of being the only overseas act ever to reach the final of NBC’s ‘Last Comic Standing’. As a finalist, he embarked on a 63 date national US tour with NBC as part of the ʻLast Comic Standing World Tourʼ.
Ultimately Jim is easily one of the top comedians in the world and now lives in the U.S. So he might not be back for years – if at all – so don’t miss this!
Freddie Farrell has a captivatingly hilarious anecdotal approach to humour. His natural storytelling ability coupled with his likeable and relaxed stage presence make him one of Britain’s most seamless and gut-bustingly funny comedians. Freddie’s quality was proven quickly as within a year of becoming a comedian he was already sharing the bill with acclaimed comedians such as Sarah Millican and Chris Ramsey; proof of his comedic class.
