JLA Showcases

JLA has hosted showcases since 1991, when The Real Variety Show first opened its doors to the event industry to prove that ‘alternative’ comedians were turning into the new mainstream. We haven’t looked back since. Each September we welcome 850 guests to enjoy the latest crop of talent – often just before they become famous.

Our Speakers Breakfasts also give you an opportunity to see who’s new to the circuit before making a booking. We have launched the likes of William Hague and Chris Hoy, told the story of Innocent Drinks and Dyson, and introduced many of the pioneers of the digital revolution.
