OLAF FALAFEL (www.olaffalafel.com)

Olaf is a surrealist comedian and illustrator whose debut stand up show ‘Olaf Falafel and The Cheese Of Truth’ won critical acclaim and award nominations.

As well as finding comedic success onstage, Falafel has also enjoyed online fame with his short viral videos. These absurdist movies include a croissant-coiffured talking Donald Trump puppet, slices of truth telling cheese being thrown onto newspapers and the Bee Gees hiding in his beard.

The comedy website Chortle affectionately described Falafel as ‘an idiot’ and when he doesn’t have a microphone in his hand you’ll probably find him with a pencil and pad trying to draw something equally idiotic.

NELSON GOMBAKOMBA (youtube.com/nelsongombakomba)

Nelson Gombakomba is regular on the London circuit and performs for the likes of Top Secret Comedy Club, Covent Garden Comedy Club, Backyard Comedy Club as well as the world famous Comedy Store! On top of that he's even had time to do a Ted Talk!

HARRISON P. SALTER (www.hpscomedy.com)

HARRISON has been performing on the circuit since 2015. With nearly 600 gigs under his belt he understands the mechanics of comedy and how to engage his audience. He has a degree in Investment Banking however he turned his back on a life of luxury and a highly paid career to purse a life of poverty and lonely car journeys when he learned that the value of laughter was greater than the value of money.

Harrison is personal and weaves short stories in with absurd humour and quick jokes. He regularly performs across Europe and New York and runs the comedy events company Pear Face Comedy so he can make this bio sound as amazing as he likes and for that reason "We think he's a bit of a looker and certainly would!"

Also it's not only Pear Face's Birthday but Harrison's as well tonight, so it's a double birthday celebration.
