This month, Brighton’s biggest comedy night returns with another raucous line-up. Find out more about the comedians aiming to tickle your funny bone with their sharp-witted stand-up...

John Robins

Compèring the evening is a familiar face in the comedy arena. John Robins has appeared on Russell Howard's Good News, Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week and hosted Beat the Internet on Dave. In 2015 John won the Chortle Award for Best Compère, so you know you’re in good hands.

Athena Kugblenu

A relative newcomer to the comedy circuit, Athena has made quick work of making a name for herself as a performer, panellist and writer for shows such as Mock the Week, Breaking the News, the Russell Howard Hour, Loose Ends and Horrible Histories. She will make you gasp, laugh out loud, and think about something on a deeper level all at the same time.

Sophie Duker

Winner of the 2021 Funny Women Best Comedy Writer Award, Sophie Duker is a regular guest on Frankie Boyle’s New World Order. She has also appeared on Live at The Apollo, Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and Hypothetical. Her favourite things include breaking hearts, taking names and telling jokes with the confidence of a cis straight middle-class white man.

Sindhu Vee

Since swapping a career in investment banking for one in comedy, Sindhu has fast become one of the most exciting and sought-after talents on the UK circuit. She has appeared on Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, QI & Have I Got News For You, and is a regular on the hit podcast The Guilty Feminist. In 2020, she also acted in the critically acclaimed Netflix shows Feel Good and Sex Education.
