A core member of The Cutting Edge team at London’s Comedy Store, Alistair Barrie has made numerous radio, television, corporate and festival appearances across the globe.
No More Stage Three, which told the tale of his wife’s breast cancer, was invited to the 2016 Perth Festival in Australia before a European tour and dates at London’s prestigious Soho Theatre. Alongside former Perrier nominee Nick Revell, Alistair co-produced, wrote and performed in ‘No Pressure to be Funny,’ a monthly topical show and podcast, described by The Daily Telegraph as ‘the fringe’s answer to Question Time‘ and by The Observer as one of the top ten podcasts of 2015.

Former geography teacher Rob Rouse has been a mainstay of the circuit since winning the prestigious ‘So You Think You’re Funny?’ competition in 1998. A natural performer, Rob has many voices in his head and, when unleashed, his shows become more like a hysterically funny play than one man telling very funny tales.
TV includes 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Spoons, The Friday Night Project, Grown-Ups, Dave’s One Night Stand and Comedy Shuffle with Rob Rouse.
2016 saw Rob star as William Shakespeare’s manservant Bottom in Ben Elton’s keenly anticipated sitcom Upstart Crow alongside David Mitchell and Gemma Whelan and is currently filming the second series.
Rob is also proud to be one half of the driving force behind Rob & Helen’s Date Night Podcast which you can listen to here.
