With bags of charm and a natural enthusiasm which makes him irresistible to audiences Chris may not look very quick on his feet but he more than makes up for it with his speed of thought. He has gained a reputation for being able to handle the toughest of rooms with his sharp put downs and cutting remarks in addition to being known all over the Northwest as a friend to the audience but a deadly foe to the heckler. He was also the winner of the Eric Morecambe Comedian of The Year (2002) and Liverpool Comedian of The Year (2003). Amiable, chatty. People love him. Oh, and he tells pretty funny jokes too.
Chris Cairns tour dates
In July 2008, without his knowledge, John's wife put him forward for a competition for newcomers at the Edinburgh Fringe. He had never performed comedy before. He did so well he got through to the final of 'So You Think You're Funny' within the first month of his comedy career. He offers tales of tales of his home life with a wife and 3 young daughters, essentially a 6ft tattooed man who has been subjected to far too much High School Musical and pink fluffy toys.
'His effortless likeability and unaffected charm make his conversational set all the more engaging... a class act' (Chortle).
John Gavin tour dates
Canadian stand-up comedian who has performed at venues around the world in countries including The United States, The Caribbean, United Kingdom, Italy, Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Kosovo, Denmark, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Austria, India, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Australia, Thailand and China.
'Carries the comedy off with a natural flair, in a manner so effortless one might
think it was ingrained in his DNA' (The Hindu, India)
'Dry, dark but with an irrepressible youthful charm' (The Toronto Star)
'Hilarious enough to stand alone' (The Seattle Stranger)
'Comic Myrehaug Making Waves' (The Toronto Sun).
Paul Myrehaug tour dates
Daliso is a versatile African comedian equally comfortable talking politics, romance, filth or religion. As such, he has performed in such diverse venues as churches, casinos, strip clubs and sports bars.
'Full of extravagant gestures and impassioned speeches. He inspires whoops and cheers from his watchers. Highly recommended' (BBC)
'A joy to listen to. Provocative, poignant and ultimately hilarious' (The Guardian)
'I laughed so much I thought I'd pass out!' (The List)
'It takes a special kind of act to work on both sides of the Atlantic (as well as across Africa), but it seems an easy transition as he compels the crowd with his racial and socially insightful comedy' (News and Star, Carlisle)
'Absolutely [took] the roof off the place. Brilliant, brilliant act' (The Frog and Bucket).
