tom little and hannah platt

two one hour sets from two of the comedy circuit’s brightest young talents*

*One is considerably younger than the other

tom little – the reliably funny comedian you want to see

‘The real deal. An instinctive comedian with oodles of charm and a quirky, frenetic intensity…. he could end up in movies’ (Spectator).’You will love it. The laughs are there, they are some of the most memorable you will have and they are uniquely Little. ‘ (Scotsman).’Inventive, unexpected and often very silly… Can’t remain a hidden treasure for long’ (Chortle.co.uk).’His elevation to TV panel show favourite is surely only a matter of time’ (TheWeeReview.com).’An unashamed crowd-pleaser’ (BeyondTheJoke.co.uk). ‘Gut-wrenchingly funny’ (FringeReview.co.uk).

a work in progress from bbc new comedy awards finalist hannah platt

Hannah has already been making her mark as a comic, having been described as “a voice of a new generation” by The Skinny and “a distinctive voice with something to say” by Chortle, never shying away from sensitive topics with acerbic, brutal honesty and quick wit.She recently wrote and starred in her own Laugh Lesson for BBC Three, and has supported Kiri Pritchard-McClean, Fern Brady and Lou Sanders on tour.As seen on BBC Three and heard on BBC Radio 4.

‘A voice of a new generation’…’she clearly captures a disaffected youth and world-weariness far beyond her years’ THE SKINNY

‘It’s not easy to talk about mental health in a full set, so to touch on subjects such as self-harm in a brief competition set was pretty impressive’ Bruce Dessau, BEYOND THE JOKE

‘Wears her heart on her sleeve as she discusses her mental health issues with a disarming honesty and a mordant wit. Distinctive, and she feels like a voice with something to say’ Steve Bennett, CHORTLE’
