Rising comedy stars

Up-and-coming comics to look out for this year

Marcella Arguello
Outspoken and fearless, Arguello’s friendly stand-up travels from the hot-button topic of race to hilarious impressions of Beyoncé and Drake.

James Davis
Davis’ live show, Urban Dictionary, in which guest comics must use specific modern slang in their sets, led him to present the popular Comedy Central Snapchat show Swagasaurus, and he remains ever-popular on the alt scene.

Yuriko Kotani
A newbie comic from Japan, now based in London, Kotani uses her outsider perspective and skewed logic to dissect London living. Her wonderfully offbeat stories, rug-pulling punchlines and bizarre observations have earned her places in the final of a bunch of new-act comps.

John Robins
Robins’ living situation was a sitcom waiting to happen – he shared a flat with Russell Howard and Jon Richardson. A favourite on the UK’s West Country circuit for a decade, he’s finally getting the recognition he deserves.
