About Us

Carly and Alyssa met on the comedy circuit 10 years ago. Alyssa was booking fabulous Cabaret and Comedy shows for venues such as the Charing Cross Theatre, and The London Hippodrome. Carly was wowing the crowds at one of Alyssa’s shows and they hit it off straight away.

They both love putting on shows and performing, but had found that a lot of comedy companies had a very impersonal feel to them, not just for the acts but for the venues too. They decided to join forces and create an amazing experience for anyone and everyone who wanted a bit of comedy in their lives!

Flash forward to 2019 and these funny ladies have created both ‘Bring Your Own Baby Comedy’ – the National Comedy Club for New Parents, and ‘Comedy Round Mine’ – evening shows for theatres, schools and companies.

Carly and Alyssa work side by side with each and every client, to create their dream show, with the perfect acts to suit their audience. They feel very lucky that they get to work with so many amazing theatres, companies and schools and can’t wait to chat to you about your perfect show!

Carly Smallman

Carly loves comedy – it’s her whole life! From booking fabulous shows, to performing all over the country, this girl can’t get enough of making people laugh.

Carly has performed stand-up on the BBC, been a panel show regular for ITV, and co-hosted on the radio, but her passion lies in live comedy. She has played at some fabulous venues: from major weekend comedy clubs, to arts centres, to the Hammersmith Apollo to her living room! As Carly gigs up and down the country, she has the inside info on which acts are the best of the best!

Some people said some nice things:

Smallman already has the presence of a 20 year comedy veteran. Her delightful appearance and cheery persona juxtaposed with wonderfully filthy songs make her the most exciting female act in the country right now.

Ariadne the Greek WAG was sensational

Ariadne is self obsession in a mini skirt – played with deadpan mastery…more entertaining than 1000 issues of Heat Magazine!
