Our regular comedy night at The Arc, Barnstormers Comedy presents a line-up of three top acts from the London comedy circuit and beyond: many of them Comedy Store regulars.

Markus Birdman

From The Palladium to Pakistan, a highly experienced, versatile & award winning comedian, Markus is one of stand-up’s most well travelled comedians, much in demand in the UK and all over the world, and one of the very first British Comics to have his own Netflix Special - Live in Amsterdam. 

He often incorporates visual artwork & animations in his comedy performances. He has created numerous 24 hour murals as part of the comedian Mark Watson’s 24 hr Comedy shows, raising thousands of pounds for Comic Relief.

Fiona Allen

Twice Emmy winning actor and comedian Fiona Allen has been a mainstay of our TV screens over the past two decades. She has starred in various sketch shows, most famously the iconic "Smack the Pony". Fiona has also appeared in television dramas such as "Dalziel and Pascoe", "Shameless", "Coronation Street" and "Happiness" alongside Paul Whitehouse. On film, Fiona played Sandra in the film version of the famous Viz comic strip "Fat Slags", and Smirgut the Fierce in "Gladiatress". Most recently she has been in that little-known soap "Eastenders"...

Ben Norris

Ben is a highly experienced and hugely well-respected stand-up. He’s been performing comedy since 1993 and is renowned for his incredibly relaxed stage persona and his innate ability to improvise as well as deliver sharply crafted material.
