John Hastings moved from Canada to the UK in 2012 and has since built up a strong name for himself on the UK comedy circuit thanks to his storytelling performances. He has been honoured with an Amused Moose award. He also hosts two podcasts – The Wrestler Review and Anything Can Be A Podcast Podcast – and has appeared at every major comedy festival in the world, including Edinburgh, Melbourne and Just For Laughs Montreal. His website makes it weird to look at a white page after you visit it. Carl Donnelly is a previous Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year and Great Central feature, as well as being one of the busiest comedians on the circuit. You may have seen him on Mock The Week or Russell Howard’s Good News, or you may have heard the Carl and Chris Podcast with comedy partner Chris Martin (no, not that one). Since last year they have also started a second podcast, Babysitting Trevor. I have never seen him look the same in two different photographs.
