Hot Box are proud to be hosting our first Comedy night. USOL are putting together an evening of extraordinary comedic magnitude.

Alexandria MacLeod

A Female Comic who has graced stages in New York, Paris, Luxembourg and Switzerland. Comfortable behind the camera lens portraying characters, improvising as part of a group or solo stand up Alexandria is more versatile than a Russian speaking gymnast, caber tossing bricklayer.


Bennet Kavanagh

Get ready for a home made Keytar, witty songs and 3 years of solid performing experience. Multiple comedy award nominations and interesting observational comedy make Bennets performances a surefire hit

“a very good set, with a lot to like about it. The material was strong, the piano added something a little bit different and the jokes were pretty smart.” 


Winner: King Gong London October 2015
Runner-up: Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year
Musical Comedy Awards semi-finalist
Chortle Student Comedy Award semi-finalist
Laughing Horse NATY semi-finalist


Nicole Harris

This female comedian has over 5 years of experience, she was the first female to win the Jewish Comedy award. Heritage has guided her routine and her upbringing and surroundings have greatly contributed to both her outlook and act. Observational comedy and storytelling feature in her routines.


Matt Smith

London based Matt has performed at many venues across the Uk with solo gigs or as one half of shitstorm he is as comfortable with a completely improvised set as a scripted one. Matt has a big beard and a personality to match

Mark Cram

Mark is the headline act for the first ever Hot Box comedy show. he has been a regular performer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and toured the London circuit for quite a few years. Along the way he has supported quite a few big names but has grown in confidence and ability over this time.

“It’s rare to see a comedian really grab an audience by the balls and take them on the ride with them, but that’s what you get with Mark. From the second he steps on stage you notice him. He’s everything that a TV comic would love to be; clever, fearless, constantly improving and in less than a year of gigging, he has left a massive stamp on the circuit, which gets bigger with every gig”

Just for laughs

A lot of work has gone into putting this night together and a great variety of gigging comedians are headed to Chelmsford for the evening. The Unmistakable Scent Of Leopard have really pulled out all the stops for this one. Come down and join us for a few drinks and a lot of Laughs.
