Sara Barron    

Sara Barron is one of the fastest-rising comedians of her generation. Since her 2018 debut at the Edinburgh Fringe, she’s starred on shows including Live at the Apollo (BBC), Would I Lie to You? (BBC) and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order (BBC).

A powerhouse live act, Sara’s two stand-up hours, For Worse (2018) and Enemies Closer (2019) have sold out at both the Edinburgh Festival and at multiple runs in London’s Soho Theatre.

Darran Griffiths

A comedian, host and podcaster born and raised in Harlow, to Jamaican parents, Darran Griffiths has a blend of Caribbean confidence and Essex irreverence. Flagrant, thought-provoking and funny.

In 2018, he was Amused Moose National New Comedian semi-finalist, BBC New Comedy Award nominee and Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian runner-up. In 2019, he sold out his debut show Essex Bwoy at the Camden Fringe. In 2021, he was a British Comedian of the Year semi-finalist. 2022 saw Darran reach the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedy Awards.
