Now a regular face on British TV, Nish Kumar has achieved global success and critical acclaim since kickstarting his career as student of the University of Durham. It was there he met fellow comic Tom Neenan, embarking on a raucous journey together as the double act 'Gentlemen of Leisure'.
Unlike most comedians, Felicity Ward began dabbling in stand up shows after appearing on TV in the Australian sketch comedy show, ‘The Ronnie John’s Half Hour’. She later performed her first solo gig at Melbourne Fringe in 2008, winning the title of ‘Best Newcomer’, from which her career escalated.
