Robert White is the only gay, Aspergic, quarter-Welsh comic on the British comedy scene. Known for his brilliant timing and performance style, Robert’s chaotic stage presence, improvisational skills and delivery won him the 2010 Malcolm Hardy Award for Comic Originality. And in the same year, he wrote one of Dave’s Top Ten Jokes of The Fringe.

He is arguably best known as coming second in ITV’s highest rated show, Britain’s Got Talent, in 2018. His performances throughout were typically chaotic, but hilarious. Robert’s incredible stage presence and fast-paced comedy routines won over the judges and voting public, at every stage of the show.

“Robert White killed it…matching an amazing presence to clever jokes and pitch-perfect delivery. Just brilliant.” - Chortle

“A brilliantly performed, well-structured & wonderfully unique set.” – fringebiscuit


Aaron Simmonds has been failing to stand up for 30 years; luckily he is far better at comedy than standing up. He has a unique perspective on life, usually of people's belly buttons, which gives him stories to tell, and a sore neck.

Simmonds’s comedic style is story-based, with clever one-liners interspersed throughout. He offers sharply-observed comedy which is grounded in his disability, but is by no means limited by it. Amiable, likeable and with a commanding presence on stage, Aaron is an exciting talent and is destined for great things.

“A talented comedian who has the audience in the palm of his hand” – Broadway World
