Headlining this month Cottage fave, international comedian, comedy legend and comedians photographer

STEVE BEST
A great visual comedian, harnessing a mind-boggling array of gadgets and gags to keep his audience in stitches. Funny, frenetic and mad, his act can feature anything from blowing up a woman and eating balloons, to cutting his hand off and doing press-ups on his willy.

"His act is a wonderfully daft succession of stupid props and silly pratfalls - a welcome break from straight stand-up" (The Guardian)

"Comparisons with Tommy Cooper are a no-brainer, but Best captures the fervent energy and the utter bonkers hilarity of the late fez-wearing funny man with aplomb, reinventing the bumbling magician act for the twenty first century with the aid of a blow-up sex doll and an Elvis mask" (BBC)

"His clown tricks and three-dimensional personality had us in stitches. Reminiscent of the late Charlie Chaplin, Best successfully pairs modern anagrams and classic slapstick antics."
- Cape Times (South Africa)

PAM TILLING
Funny Women's recommended 'One to Watch' (2017)
Originally from Scotland, now settled in leafy Surrey, Pam's observational saucy comedy about parenthood is sure to resonate with all as will her wee obsession with Michael Fassbender. If the film 'Serial Mom' was remade and set in the UK with a Scottish lead, Pam Tilling Would be perfect to reprise Kathleen Turner's role with aplomb and hilarity!
