Comedian who was a 2008 Hackney Empire finalist renowned for his super-high energy performance. Imran has a unique voice stamping his mark for positive, uplifting comedy at every turn.
Born in Mombasa, Kenya and raised in the UK with a brief stint at school in the USA, Imran has also travelled much of the world including Israel/Palestine, Jordan and Saudi Arabia during the Lebanon Crisis in 2006. His work has been inspired by this rich multicultural background, giving him a youthful, energetic and highly original voice that embodies the multi-cultural wealth that exists in modern Britain.
He seamlessly switches between styles with graceful fluidity, repeatedly delivering heavy-weight punch lines with enormous panache. His seemingly light-hearted satire is mixed with hard-hitting topical commentary on contemporary issues that culminate into a tour de force of comedy offering an all-embracing sentiment in his trademark styling
'Imran Yusuf's show heralds the birth of a new comedy star. Intelligent, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny, it's a glorious debut' (Time Out).
Imran Yusuf tour dates
With a fabulous flair for acutely accurate observational musings and lightning fast ad-libbing Caimh has fast built himself a reputation on the comedy circuit as the hilarious white-haired fella whose name nobody can pronounce.
A much-in-demand writer, he has worked on ITV's '2DTV' as well as the satirical documentary series 'Don't Worry' for Channel 4.
'Snappy storytelling from a very funny man' (Sarah Milllican).
'Superb, a source of joy' (Time Out)
'... a standout act' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Genial white-haired Irishman Caimh (pronounced 'Queeve') has quickly established himself as one of the circuits most amiable and friendly acts. His gentle yet incisive humour makes any audience feel involved, whilst playing with their expectations' (Funhouse Comedy).
Caimh McDonnell tour dates
Dudley's very own 'Sultan of Smut'. A consistently popular act from a larger than life and earthy performer.
'Sean's humour is not surreal, it's not wacky, it's just bl**dy funny. This is not smile humour, this is bust your gut rubber underpants stuff' (What's On)
'... the big gold star of the show must be the long-haired man from Dudley. He came. He spoke. He had us curled up begging for more...' (Evening Mail)
'... comedian and scriptwriter Sean Percival. His brand of comedy steers clear of the surreal and confronts realism in an explosively funny way. His down to earth act is bang up to date with its upfront attitude, no long stories, just gags galore' (Funhouse Comedy).
Sean Percival tour dates
Christian's first gig was playing Orson Carson in the Perrier-awarded 'Rich Hall is Otis Lee Crenshaw'. He has since gone on to use his accomplished musicianship, extensive vocal range and love of music to establish himself as a global comedy circuit headliner; at international festivals, on BBC radio and TV and recently on the award-winning 'Richard Herring: As It Occurs To Me'.
'If you're a fan of Bill Bailey or Rich Hall, you're a Christian Reilly fan already' (The Guardian).
'The comedy equivalent of Motorhead slamming straight into Ace Of Spades' (The Scotsman).
Christian Reilly tour dates
'Robin is one of the strongest acts to emerge from the Welsh comedy scene in years - his quick wit and warm stage presence, coupled with a wicked, cheeky streak have made him a firm crowd favourite, time and time again. He's a natural' (Comedy CV)
'A deft descriptive style with an air of control and observation becoming a man far advanced of his years. He'll win you over within moments' (Cardiff Comedy Festival)
'Good, twisting lines... his urbanity is welcome and unusual' (Chortle)
'... the skilfully expressive Robin Morgan...' (Funhouse Comedy).
