Flâneur, raconteur, bon-viveur, Marcel Lucont is easily the best French comedian on the UK circuit today. If you don’t believe this, just ask him yourself.
Marcel has entertained the world with his wry observations, bawdy chansons and top-class sex poetry, and is the author of the superb book “What We French Think Of You British… And Where You Are Going Wrong” (New Holland Publishers)

Benny Boot (AUS)
Australian comic Benny Boot has been performing comedy in the UK for 9 years. He is considered by many comedians as a wonderful comedian to watch. Benny was a finalist in NBC’s Last Comic Standing and was invited to the Vancouver Comedy Festival in 2005. He has performed in Edinburgh as part of the Just The Tonic Showcase (2006), for the Pleasance Comedy Reserve (2007) and debuted his first solo show last year, Set Up, Punchline…Pause for Laughter (2011). Benny returned to the Fringe with his second solo show Def-Con 4 (2012). The show sold out throughout the Fringe, and Boot put on extra shows to satisfy demand. The show received a great response from his audience and critics.
Boot delivers his jokes in a unique style on variety of strange topics. His engaging persona & material keeps the laughter rolling through the entire show and is guaranteed to bring any audience undone. Benny is considered in the industry to be one of the most original and finest joke writers in the business. He stormed the Altitude Comedy Festival this March and was the one comedian, out of a line up of top acts such as Tim Minchin, Jimmy Carr and Frankie Boyle that everyone – audience, critics and comics – was talking about.
