  • Sarah Millican – who was the 2008 Best Newcomer
  • Bo Burnham – who started doing his comedic songs on YouTube (he’s only turned 20 in the last week)
  • Greg Davies – Who plays Mr Gilbert, head of sixth form, in the Inbetweeners
  • Josie Long – won the BBC Young Comedy Award at the tender age of 17
  • Russel Kane – who recently pointed out there were too many Russel’s in comedy

Here’s a little glimpse of each of them in action.
