Birmingham-born Lindsey Santoro has been active on the Midlands comedy circuit since 2014.

She made the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2016, and describes her style as a mix of the down-to-earth and the madcap.

Midlands funny man Josh Pugh won the English Comedian of the Year in 2016, hot off winning the Midland New Act of the Year in 2014 and 2015.


Josh won the prestigious Comedian of the Year title two years after his first show.

Black Country comedian Jonny Cole began his career writing cheeky parody songs.
