Tiernan Douieb is a natural compere. He's like a big tickling stick... and that's a good thing. But don't take our word for it, here are a few reviews from his 2009 Edinburgh Show:
'An endearing and good natured performer (The Stage)
'This densely packed set is delivered by a comic with charm and a sweetly boyish perspective….Douieb has an accomplished and charming manner and some genuinely funny material' (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine)
'Douieb has more than enough energy to go round, and he's a hugely engaging onstage presence...' (British Comedy Guide)
'... gets the juxtaposition between heavy context and winning punchlines right’ (Festmag)
'With this fresh style and material he blows so many other Fringe comedians out of the water' (Three Weeks)

Perrier Award nominee and Hackney Empire winner, Luke Toulson has been a guest on BBC Radio 4 and 5 Live, and written for comics appearing on Live At The Apollo and Mock The Week.
'Rock solid comedy' (Chortle)
'An explosion of good-natured self-deprecation and exasperated observations...' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Toulson is clearly a gifted comic' (The Sunday Times)
'... he is the kind of comedian who should share the spotlight with the more
established stars' (The Stage).

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).
Daliso Chaponda tour dates
'Skinhead, intellectual, and specialist compere, Roger Monkhouse employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience' (Glee)
'His laconic delivery shields an engaging persona and an enquiring mind' (The Guardian)
'Pulls punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air... Saucy - and uncompromisingly so -
sometimes topical, sometimes punny, sometimes clever, sometimes daft... There is, in short, something in this varied comedy menu for every taste... A gifted natural... One of the consummate professionals of the stand-up circuit' (Chortle)
'... one of the most experienced acts in the business. His deadpan style and quick wit make him one of the best acts out there, and he is a regular fixture at top venues all over the country, as well as performing extensively throughout the rest of the world' (Funhouse Comedy).
