Full reviews for these shows have now been removed but here's how we rated them and a brief summary:

ANDREW MAXWELL (4/5 - cheeky likeable Irishman with big future and top gags)

COLIN AND FERGUS (0/5 - an hour of excruciating unfunnyness. avoid)

CRAIG CAMPBELL (4/5 - the fun flowed with this crazy Canuck)

DEMETRI MARTIN (5/5 - one of the best shows yet from the quirky New Yorker)

DUTCH ELM CONSERVATOIRE (3.5/5 - enjoyable paranormal caper from Perrier nominated troupe)

JASON BYRNE (4/5 - not as manic as his Badger show but still cracking)

LAUREL AND LAUREL (4.5/5 - poignant one man show on the public and private sides of Stan Laurel)

LUCY PORTER (5/5 - hard not to go away with a smile on your face)

MACHOMER (5/5 - amazing and frenetic solo performance of MacBeth Simpsons-style)

NIGERIAN SPAM SCAM SCAM (4.5/5 - refreshed, funnier and tighter from already excellent previous version)

RICHARD HERRING (4/5 - a successful return to stand up with some real stand out moments from the yoghurt lover)

ROB NEWMAN (3.5/5 - relevant and obscure political satire but just falls short at times)

STEWART LEE (4/5 - pushes the comedy boundaries in a show that will amuse and offend in equal numbers)

STRASSMAN (5/5 - the classiest and funniest ventriloquist on the planet)

SUE PERKINS (3.5/5 - at times sharp, at times laboured stand up turn from the one that isn't Mel)

THE ODD COUPLE (4.5/5 - well casted, well acted, star studded version of classic)

TIM VINE (5/5 - non stop gags and puns that will leave your sides sore)
