COMEDIANS ANNOUNCED
 
Nicholas Byard
 
Nick Byard is a civil servant who had an early mid-life crisis, decided to take up comedy and now describes himself as one of Reading’s prominent citizens. Expect nerd joke and tightly written one liners from the 5th best gag writer in Reading.
“a charming oddity with sharp writing” – Stand and Deliver Comedy Club
_______
Akshay Morye
 
Akshay Morye is an Oxford-based comic with an Indian passport. A comedian of unpronounceable proportions, Akshay is often described as cocksure and uncaring by his peers, and unfunny by those who know him better. He is actually better at writing AI than comedy. This is fortunate as AI is how he earns his bread, while his comedy prepares the world for certain apocalypse.

Kitty Speed
 
Kitty Speed’s warmhearted comedy is full of joyful tales and earnest observations, all delivered in a relaxed anecdotal style. Winner of Yellow Comedy New Comedian 2019 and 2Northdown Semifinalist 2020. “Oxford’s sweetest of hearts” – A Club If You’d Like to Go “Up and coming Oxford favourite” – Chappers Comedy
_______
Dan Collins
 
Wacky, loud and slightly surreal, Dan blends a mix of tightly written jokes, intellectual and well thought out ideas, and the slightly psychotic rhetoric of a madman.
… Dan also has mixed feelings about referring to himself in the 3rd person.

Chloe Jacobs
 
Chloe Jacobs is a stand-up, sketch and improv comedian. A final year English student at Oriel College, Oxford, she has spent the last few performing with the Oxford Imps and Oxford Revue as well as on the Oxford and London stand-up circuits. She is currently staring down the barrel of finals/post-degree unemployment so if she starts crying, just LOOK AWAY.
 
“Savage, but incredibly witty” – Oxford Opening Night,
 
“Charmingly self-deprecating and wonderfully self-assured” – Cherwell,
 
“Like human marmite, people either love you or they just – they just hate you.” – her head of sixth form, rejecting her head girl application.

Sam Lake
 
Sam Lake is a stand-up comedian, writer and presenter. Sam openly shares stories and details from his life as a semi-camp gay man, moving from a small mining village to a big city and gearing up to becoming a happily married man.
 
Sam has been performing comedy for 4 years, and has racked up a number of achievements, including winning Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year 2018 and Hastings Fringe Newcomer of the Year 2018. He’s had multiple sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, including his most recent offering, “Household Essentials”, a stand-up double-header with fellow comic Chloe Petts. He’s currently working on his debut hour for 2020, titled “Cake”.

And your host for the evening….
Ben Hurdman
As you may know, he appeared on Take Me Out and still sponges off the story to this day. Since his time away from Brookes he has an “adult job” now but also dips into any hosting or TV opportunities that come his way. He’d also like to add he’s finally had a haircut and can still offer half-decent hosting skills, with the worst one liners you will hear all night. But one thing he’s sure to bring us some energy to the stage.
