Mirth-maker from Merseyside whose hilarious observations and witty banter have been a hit with audiences all over the UK and Ireland.
There's nothing bland or predictable about this standup comic, with his lively blend of anecdotes and inspired improvisation, Riley is a sought after headline act.

Marlon Davis is a bright young comedian, improviser and actor who embraces his work with energy and charm, embodying his characters and delivering his acute observational material with aplomb.
His act is inspired from his upbringing, exploring Britain and tackling its social issues with skilful characterisations.
Winner of the FHM Search For A Stand-Up Hero Competition in 2009. In 2006, he was a finalist in both the So You Think You're Funny and Laughing Horse new act competitions.
Still a relative newcomer, Marlon Davis is like a breath of fresh air on stage, with an impish grin, boyish enthusiasm and an effortlessly open, confident style that instantly wins him friends in the audience.
'A compelling storyteller whose anecdotes carry the elusive stamp of urban authenticity' (The Scotsman).

Although hailed as the only blind comic on the stand up circuit, comedian Chris McCausland makes light of it. He usually begins with a crack about the irony of a blind man doing observational comedy and then speeds off into his entertaining and refreshing set, making wry and perceptive comments about the rich and famous, every day life and suchlike. Instantly likeable and definitely memorable.
'Proper stand up, honest straightforward and balls-out funny' (Chortle)
'A must see!' (The Sunday Times)
'Always excellent' (The Times)
'Truly brilliant' (Three Weeks)
'The new face of comedy in the UK' (ITV)
'Shining Light!' (Sunday Express)
'... fabulously funny and a definite highlight' (Leicester Mercury).

They may have a point!
'Energetic storytelling and acute observations - Bligh juxtaposes his affable, conversational style with a fearless and animated, high-octane comedy performance' (Red Card Comedy Club)
'A great comedian – in yer face and very funny' (The Gazette And Press)
'A manic wide-eyed crazed funny man' (The Evening Standard).
Simon Bligh tour dates
Paramount Funniest Student Runner Up 2009 and Chortle Student Comedy Awards Finalist 2009, Laura Lexx is a uniquely gleeful performer with an easy, chatty style that covers all things from the West Country to the aging process of socks.
Performing mainly in London and the South, Lexx is a chirpy addition to any line up.
'... the positive and personable Laura Lexx, with her delightfully funny take on
things. Happy to discuss anything with the audience her distinctive style is both cheeky and charming' (Funhouse Comedy)
'One of the most delightful performers you're ever likely to see' (GQ Magazine).
