Funhouse Comedy Club: Tom Wrigglesworth, Danny Ward, Dan Bland, Scott Bennett
Tom is a frighteningly tall comedian, but a thoroughly nice man with a likeable stage presence and confident delivery. This Yorkshire funny man became a national have-a-go-hero when he rescued a little old lady from the jaws of Virgin train bureaucracy, only to be arrested for begging. He's also the winner of Channel 4's 'So You Think You're Funny?' competition.
'Magical storytelling... a rare talent... hysterical and accomplished' (Time Out)
'The gods of comedy chose greatness for Tom' (The Scotsman).
Tom Wrigglesworth tour dates
Since November 2008 Danny Ward has been travelling Great Britain, often in his T reg Polo, sometimes on the coach, entertaining audiences with his unique style of observational humour.
A self proclaimed tataholic, Danny Ward is on a mission to spread the lesson he refuses to learn – when you try and do things on the cheap, it ends up costing you more.
He was nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year in 2013 and has gigged extensively across the UK including comedy venues such as The Glee Clubs, Jongleurs, The Highlight, Just The Tonic, Baby Blue, Komedia, the Bearcat and Downstairs At The Kings Head.
He has also performed in Northern Ireland at the Belfast Empire, as well as in Germany, Tenerife, Maastricht and Croatia.
'Danny Ward's observational humour is brilliantly delivered... This is top quality stand up...' (Three Weeks)
'Danny Ward clicked with the capacity crowd immediately and his brilliantly timed... approach was bolstered by some really tight, strong material' (Bournmouth Echo)?.
Danny Ward tour dates
Runner-up Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2010 and Manchester Comedy Festival award winner, Dan Bland brings a touch of darkness to the comedy circuit. His morbid disposition owes more to a grumpy undertaker than a genial stand-up comedian. But that funereal facade belies a devilish comic mind that has beguiled countless audiences.
Delivering explosive one-liners with razor-sharp precision, deadpan Dan unfailingly ensures that he is the only person in the room to keep a straight face.
'Like a slow-burning explosive. His deliberate monotone delivery lulls you into a false sense of security, until you suddenly realise you've been hit in the face by a rapid-fire round of blistering wit' (Worksop Guardian)
'Razor-sharp jokes beautifully delivered' (Paul Sinha).
Dan Bland tour dates
Old Speckled Hen Comedian Of The Year 2010 currently blazing a trail through the Northern comedy circuit with his brilliantly honed observational material dealing with all manner of topics ranging from childbirth to eat as much as you like buffet etiquette and taking in Back To The Future on his mirth-fuelled journey.
'A generous helping of wonderfully witty comic observations about life's little quirks, relationships and human behaviour. Served by a Yorkshireman with relentless enthusiasm and boundless energy' (http://www.bbc.co.uk)
'Naturally hilarious, the highlight of the evening' (Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Fringe 2013).
