Speakers Corner Comedy Collective 2019 Highlights
There is no better way of getting over hump day then by heading to a night of comedy. One of the greatest joys of living in London is that there is always something on that ticks everyone’s box.
We are lucky enough to work in an industry that is filled with some of the most talented people in their field, and we were able to witness some of this magic at our annual Comedy Collective. Showcasing some of the latest talent in the country who are prefect for hosting and could form part of an event line-up.
If you enjoy a good belly laugh, then here are some of the best comedic talent in the country who reduced the crowd to fits of laughter.
Joel Dommett Joel is an exciting talent on the UK stand-up comedy circuit after gaining rave reviews for his Edinburgh shows. Coming in second place in ITV’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! 2016 series, Joel quickly won over audiences with his geeky charm and witty quips. Since leaving the jungle, his solo shows have sold out across the nation, a testament to his brilliant humour and likeable style.
Talented and topical, Ian Stone is a comedian and broadcaster, who blends these two worlds to build a provocative and entertaining performance. A truly seasoned performer, Ian has toured the globe for over two decades with his edgy style and intelligent riffs. Having appeared on multiple TV and radio programmes including Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week and Radio 5 Live’s Fighting Talk, Ian’s hilarious quips are utterly delightful.
London-born Kerry Godliman is one of the UK’s best comedy performers. Straight talking and quick witted, Kerry’s stand-up routines leave audiences both bursting with laughter, while sagely nodding along in recognition. Kerry’s well timed and honest comedy have ensured her appearances on shows such as Live At The Apollo, Channel 4’s Comedy Gala, and Jack Dee’s Referendum Helpdesk. Kerry’s side-splittingly funny comedy and sharp timing make her one of the most popular comedians on the UK scene, and we were delighted to give you a flavour of her.
Jan Ravens is best known for impersonating countless celebrities and public figures in Dead Ringers on Radio 4 and from the Imitation Game on ITV. You’ll recognise her from stepping out on Strictly Come Dancing, winning Celebrity Mastermind, speaking as a panellist on BBC’s Question Time, and 2018’s Royal Variety Performance. Her unique brand of satirical comedy is delivered with witty intelligence but is nevertheless full of warmth and fondness for the characters she is portraying.

Rising star Maisie Adam is a young female comedian, hailing from Yorkshire. Having started on the circuit in 2016, her anecdotal material and self-deprecating charm have quickly won her praise up and down the country. Previewing her first stand-up show “Living on The Edge”, after receiving many positive reviews, she won the nationwide competition, So You Think You’re Funny? at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

A night filled with laughter, hot popcorn and a cheeky drink or two, it was a wonderful way to spend a Wednesday night. I think it safe to say that we all enjoyed ourselves immensely and found ourselves in fits of laughter. We’d like to thank all the comedians for reminding us what a good belly laugh feels like, and we can’t wait to see you again on the London circuit.
