Adam Coumas

As seen on the BBC!

Adam Coumas hosted the prestigious AAA Stand Up show at the Underbelly during the Edinburgh Fringe 2019 and came Runner Up in the NATYs Award 2020.

Selam Amare

Selam is a cultural producer, comedian, and advocate of migrant issues in London. She works with Counterpoints Arts, producing their No Direction Home standup comedy event series.

One of Selam’s projects — Azmari Bet — platforms her native Ethiopian culture by promoting Ethiopian music styles, artists, food, and performance.

Shakala Kurup

Shalaka Kurup is an award-winning Indian comedian. Her observational humour has been described as being “deadpan joy” (The Morning Star) and acerbic.

She recently opened for Eshaan Akbar and Ria Lina, and has been featured on Channel 4 Digital and BBC One.


Gracie M. is Venezuelan-born, London-based comedian jokes about adapting to British culture the quirks of London life, debunking assumptions about Latin Americans and, of course, recounting the wild adventures of her dating life.

Stella Graham

Stella Graham is a naturally funny stand-up comedian, writer & actor. Shameless, charmingly aggressive and unladylike, she’s the funniest half Sri Lankan gal from Coventry.

During Lockdown, Stella made funny workout videos, a video podcast and did online gigs! What a trip. Gigging in slippers.
