Barbara Nice

“Opening the show is Barbara Nice, who reached the semi-finals of last year’s Britain’s Got Talent. She’s also know for her role in Phoenix Nights.

“Our middle act, Simon Lomas, is one of the new up-and-coming stars of comedy.

"Last year he won Petfringe comedian of the year, which is a national competition with the biggest cash prize in comedy.

“Our headline act is Dane Baptiste, who’s been on Live At The Apollo twice, Mock The Week, and even had his own BBC3 sitcom!”

Simon Lomas

Barbara Nice is Stockport’s favourite housewife from this year’s Britain’s Got Talent, where she wowed the judges and reached the semi-finals of the competition. She was also on both series of the hit TV show Phoenix Nights.

Simon Lomas is highly-regarded as the most promising young comedian in the country. According to Freddy he’s stand up’s “best-kept secret, but has been steadily gaining a cult following of fans bowled over by his unique and original performances”.

A recognised comedy superstar, Dane Baptiste has two Live At The Apollo appearances under his belt, as well as starring on Tonight At The London Palladium and Mock The Week. He even has his own sitcom on BBCThree, Sunny D.
