Comedy at the Kenton
Presented by Avalon Promotions Ltd
Adam Hess – Seahorse
Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee, as seen on Tonight at the Palladium and Live at the BBC. Adam can’t imagine the Queen with wet hair and he can’t get his head around the fact his cat has a grandad. A show about how he almost ruined his life this year, leaving him with nothing, and how he’s trying to get it back on track.
‘I’ve seen few shows that are funnier’ **** (Times).

Winner of BBC New Comedy Award 2017 and So You Think You’re Funny 2016, Heidi Regan is an Australian comic who’s been living in the UK for 10 years. She has supported Joe Lycett on tour and did a sell out run at Edinburgh 2018 with her debut show Heidi Vs Sharks.
Chloe Petts’ “inexhaustibly funny mind” (Diva Magazine) and “compelling presence” (Steve Bennett, Chortle) has established her as one of the most exciting new acts on the circuit.
Chloe is an alumna of the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve, has been shortlisted for the BBC Comedy Award, was a finalist in the most recent Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year Awards and came runner-up in the Funny Women Awards 2017.
She has appeared on Channel 4’s Random Acts and BBC 3 Quickies.
She is a co-founder of The Lol Word, a queer comedy collective that hosts sell-out monthly London nights, boasting the finest female and non-binary queer acts on the circuit. Their most recent Edinburgh run was a sell-out. Diva Magazine has described it as “a space that is demographically queer, inclusive, and safe, and on top of all of that – the comedic talent is smart, insightful, hilarious, and completely relatable.”
