May's Line-Up

Thomas Green

Thomas Green attacks every stage with skill and energy that commands the entire room. Green has the innate ability to get any audience on side with his charismatic Aussie best mate persona. He is one of those rare comics who, when you watch them for the first time, you know you are watching a true genius at work. Green is a former primary school teacher and religious cult member. From everyday observations to his experiences living and working in a cult which controlled every part of his life, until he broke out to pursue a career in comedy, green’s material is raw unfiltered and hysterical. With so much momentum and heat building around him he is destined to be the hottest new thing.

Annie McGrath

Annie McGrath is a comedian renowned for her joke writing skills and deadpan style. She is also a talented artist and host of the podcast Secret Artists. She curated Art is the Best Medicine, an exhibition of artworks by comedians including Vic Reeves, Harry Hill, Josie Long, Jenny Eclair and Alex Horne to raise money for Mental Health UK. The exhibition featured on the front page of the Guardian Guide and in large spreads in the Evening Standard and iNews.

Alasdair Beckett King

Alasdair is an award-winning stand-up comedian, as seen on Comedy Central Live and Mock the Week, right before the BBC cancelled it. (This is just a coincidence, don’t read anything into it.) Alasdair has been heard but not seen on Radio 4’s The News Quiz, The Now Show and BBC Radio Scotland’s Breaking the News. With over a quarter of a million YouTube subscribers, Alasdair has created a number of hit sketches, parodies and animations for social media. In 2023, Walker Books published his debut children’s novel Montgomery Bonbon: Murder at the Museum, and the sequel Death at the Lighthouse.

In the same year, Alasdair took his critically acclaimed solo show The Interdimensional ABK on a sell-out UK tour, promoted by Mick Perrin Worldwide. He followed this up in 2024 with a reprise of his sell-out 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show Nevermore. Alasdair has performed stand up in Germany, The Netherlands, Spain and more at music festivals including Glastonbury and Latitude. He is also the co-host of the comedy folklore podcast Loremen.

Jessie Nixon

Jessie Nixon is a Bristolian stand-up comedian with a dynamic, friendly stage presence and a sharp wit. Jessie’s credits include tour support for Fern Brady, Helen Bauer, Steve Bugeja and Lou Sanders. She is widely regarded as a rising star on the circuit and has an impressive roster of achievements under her belt as she came third at the Funny Women Stage Awards 2022 as well as BBC New Comedian of the Year Regional Finalist 2021, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the year Nominee 2021, and more! Between her effervescent, winning comedy and her growing list of accolades, Nixon is an act not to be missed.
