After being hired as a warm up artist for Friday Night with Jonathon Ross, Mock the Week and Would I Lie To You Charlie was soon asked to perform in front of the camera as a panellist on such shows as BBC3’s Comedy Gala 2011, BBC2’s Never Mind The Buzzcocks and ITV1’s Odd One In. Subsequently Charlie was a regular on the 2010 series of Richard Bacon’s Beer and Pizza Club, starred in the last series of The Comedy Store which aired in January 2011 and will be performing stand-up on The Rob Brydon Show Christmas Special in December 2011. Not only is multi-talented Charlie Baker a much in demand stand-up comedian and compere, but also an accomplished, highly acclaimed Jazz singer and musician (solo, and with The Charlie Baker Band). His music career has seen him perform with The John Wilson Orchestra, The Syd Lawrence Orchestra and The Ted Heath Big Band. ??Mixing his comedy, musical and acting talents Charlie will be performing his play The Wedding Band at the Edinburgh Festival every day at 2.45pm at the Gilded Balloon. Charlie was also the mainstay of Let’s Dance for Comic Relief 2011 (which he won) with Emmerdales James Thornton, defeating favourite Russell Kane with their tap routine and helping to raise over one million pounds for Comic Relief.

Steve Gribbin is a diminutive guitar-wielding satirist from Liverpool whose scabrous comedy songs and off the wall observations have made him one of the firm favourites of the comedy circuit.
Steve´s original comedy songs combine razor sharp lyrics with tunes that put their foot in the door of your mind and refuse to leave. Firmly based in rock 'n' roll and refusing to pull no punches, these are not the 'oh so witty' ditties of penguin-suited plink plonk piano playing posh gobs. They are that rarity - comedy songs which are actually funny.
For nine years Steve was the smaller one in the dynamic comedy duo Skint Video, stalwart´s of the Edinburgh Festival, appearing on countless television programmes such as Saturday Live, radio such as The Mary Whitehouse Experience, and their own show in 1992/3 Songlines (BBC Radio 1). Skint Video went their different ways in 1993, since then Steve has been storming across the UK and Ireland as a solo artiste.
