Umby Winters is Queer. Not just queer, but very queer. As a nonbinary comedian, Umby is able to bring a unique perspective to everyday interactions that those who fit inside the gender binary take for granted. From things as simple to using the bathroom to decisions as big as their own name; Umby takes the audience on a “gently educational” tour through life as a member of the Trans community.
Umby tackles hot button topics with joy, sincerity, and just a touch of the absurd. Equipped with “the sort of adjectives that would bring Piers Morgan out in a cold sweat” (Chortle).

Warm and mischievous; The Impish Scribe can’t help but win you over and make you feel better, whether you like it or not!

Amarpal had the fortune of being brought up in Bradford by working class parents but the misfortune of having those parents become upper class and putting him into a posh school. Now as he hits middle age his stand up goes back to reflect on the bizarre contrast growing up and how it still effects him today: from school yard racism to bringing up a mixed race child, his comedy is a tender love letter to his family, his home town and the mental health issues that they both helped create.
A Pirate, A Magician and a mess of ADHD, Eden combines all of the above into a frenetic burst of laughs, surprises and joy guaranteed to leave you amazed, astounded and a little confused.
“Hilariously Unbroadcastable” – BBC
“Great fun, quality on stage and really original” – Dan Webber
“I enjoyed Eden’s magic, jokes and takes on ADHD, worth booking them” – Den of Laughs
Jonny Collins is an aggressively inclusive Non-Binary comedian, Jonny pulls no punches yet makes everyone feel welcome and represented in their thought provoking, and well constructed deconstructions of gender, sexuality and politics. With radical leftist ideals and a fast and furious delivery style, Jonny Collins is a favourite of socialist, anarchists, feminists (of the trans inclusive variety), and queer activists alike.
“Jonny is a force of nature on stage. A whirlwind of hilarity with a unique viewpoint, they energy and passion personified.” – XS Malarkey
“Jonny Collins is deceptively rapid-fire, with a gag rate that would shame most one-line merchants. They can bring a simmer to a boil with ease, and make a huge mess of your kitchen.” – James Ross (Quantum Leopard)
