Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
'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).
Roger Monkhouse tour dates
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
Nathan is a young black British comic, gigging on both the mainstream and black comedy circuit. His set is highly obsevational, influenced by his culture and upbringing, and also coming from a young person's outlook on life, from the well-known Nigerian traffic warden and the always-disciplining West-Indian mother, to MTV's Pimp my Ride.
'Excellent story-telling skills keep the crowd easily entertained' (Three Weeks)
‘Caton is probably the most exciting young black comic on the scene’ (Fest Magazine)
'Caton's a slick performer with an unbeatable stage attitude and the confident air of someone much more experienced' (Chortle)
'Compelling, well-observed stand-up... He specialises in laidback, on-the-nose material, chopping down fools of all colours, both in day-to-day life and in the media' (The Guardian)
'A huge star in the near future’ (http://www.one4review.com).
Nathan Caton tour dates
'The moment he comes on stage, Newcastle newbie Kai Humphries blasts into a fine routine. A good half of his brief set revolves around the imaginative idea of a credit-crunch Narnia' (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
'Happy, original and surreal... Caustic, rapid-fire wit... An immensely gifted stand-up' (The Skinny).
