Host Comedian 1 – Mandy Muden
As Seen on Britain’s Got Talent 2018
“Hi, I’m Mandy – and I do tricks!” is how the one and only Mandy Muden introduces herself. Described as like “Alison Steadman playing a beauty consultant doing Tommy Cooper-style magic – but without the fez”, Mandy would take that as a compliment. With an act made for the digitally-enhanced age, Mandy has audiences astounded with both the brilliance of some (certainly not all) of her magic and in hysterics at her off-the-cuff one-liners and observations.
Comedian 2 – Mike McClean
The Big Breakfast (C4) Mad For It (ITV) Shameless (C4) ‘The Office’ (BBC)
Mike McLean has hosted numerous television shows for the BBC, ITV, C4, C5, Sky1 & Nickelodeon and excels at live TV.
He originally trained as an actor, at the Arden School of Theatre in Manchester. However, after leaving college Mike gravitated towards stand-up comedy and quickly broke onto the circuit with a comedy magic act. He was soon spotted by a TV producer from Nickelodeon and went on to front several shows for the channel, including “Nick AM”, a live daily breakfast show. He later joined ITV to present the kids game show “It’s Not Fair”, followed by 2 series of “Mad for It”, a live children’s show, he devised, for ITV. In 2010 Mike returned to his acting routes, playing ‘Father Tony’ in “Shameless”.
Comedian 3 – Peter Brush
‘unique observations and connections that stand-ups crave’ – The Guardian
A highly distinctive performer and deft writer of finely crafted jokes, Peter Brush unassumingly takes the stage with his slight bespectacled frame and scruffy hair, before consummately conquering it with an arsenal of razor sharp quirky one-liners and peerlessly original routines, all delivered in an amusingly awkward fashion.
Peter has been a finalist in a variety of local and national comedy competitions including the BBC New Comedy Award 2013, as well as winning the Harrogate Comedian of the Year 2012. He has also written for BBC Radio 4’s ‘The News Quiz’, ‘The Show What You Wrote’ and ‘Newsjack’
Comedian 4 – Colin Cole
“He mesmerized the audience; they only took their eyes off him to laugh” The Melbourne Age
Colin is literally one of the biggest names in comedy in Australia – not only is he 6′ 7″, he is also known for his hugely dynamic performance. His delivery is fast and furious, and his material ranges from the topical to the observational. Colin Cole’s comedy TV credits read like a “‘guide to Australian Television” they include hit shows such as ‘Hey Hey’, ‘The Max Gillies Show’ and ‘Bingles’. He has toured extensively in the US, Canada and Hawaii, and now he’s also taking the UK by storm. He’s been described by The New York Times as “One of the most exciting performers to come out of Australia since Skippy!”
