Our opening act is a Gag N Bone Man COmedy favourite - Yorkshire Comedy Awards 2022 Breakthrough Act winner, Jonny Brook - "One person was laughing hard enough that they looked in need of help" - Notts Comedy Review.

With support from Ben Turner, as seen in the Daily Telegraph’s 25 Funny Jokes For Lockdown and with more than 3 Million views on Facebook Reels.

"Rayner's closing routine was rock solid and hit a high" - Notts Comedy Review

​"One of the best MCs around" - Leeds Laughter Lounge

​“Made me laugh out loud." - David Baddiel

​"Bloody hilarious" - Simon Brodkin
