Winner of ITV's Show Me The Funny, this half-Iranian, half-Middlesborough comic is a rising star on the comedy circuit. Full of an insatiable lust for life, his exuberant comedy greets the audience like a sex-starved spaniel would greet a trouser leg.
In 2012 he took part in Let’s Dance for Sports Relief on BBC, won Best Newcomer at the Loaded LAFTA Awards and Forth Radio Best Stand-Up People’s Choice Award for his hit show ‘Hug Me I Feel Good’. He played the role of the dastardly Captain Hook in ‘The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan’ at the Worthing Pavilion from December 2016 to early Jan 2017.
A natural-born performer, he exudes charisma from the stage (and often off it, when he scuttles into the crowd...!)
'High energy and conviction, his material is great; he's going to go far' (The Sunday Times)
'Omid Djalili meets Dave Allen' (Daily Mail)
'Monahan possesses the rare ability to be hilarious without being outrageous' (Three Weeks)
'The same mix of control and on-stage charisma as a young Alan Davies' (The Herald)
'Monahan is a supremely engaging performer, adored by his audiences and capable of some terrific comedy' (The Scotsman).
Patrick Monahan was placed in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians 2016.
Patrick Monahan tour dates
Alan Hudson has appeared on ITV’s Penn and Teller and on ITV's Britain's Next Great Magician, where his balloon-popping trick went down a storm. Using his blend of stand up and stunning magic he will firstly captivate you and then with his natural wit, draw you in to his super unnatural world.
'... one of the UK's most successful close-up magic and comedy magicians...'
'... an astounding magician, comic and mind reader' (Three Weeks)
'... the fascinating magician and comedian Alan Hudson with his modern funky magic. Using his blend of stand up and stunning magic he'll firstly charm you and then with his natural wit, draw you in to his super unnatural world' (Funhouse Comedy).
Alan Hudson tour dates
Multi award winning comedian with a quirky deadpan delivery and a sometimes surreal take on things. Pete was the Costa Light Comedy Challenge Winner in 2011 and Reading Comedy Festival New Act of The Year in 2012 and has gone on to win a handful of other comedy awards. He now performs all over the UK in venues big and small.
"Stand-out gags" - Chortle
"like a bewhiskered English Emo Philips" - Chortle
"Loaded's favourite on the night was the clearly bonkers Pete Beckley" - Loaded Laftas 2011
Pete Beckley tour dates
Comedian, presenter and writer Steve N Allen has a natural stage presence that connects with a crowd. From relatable anecdotes to topical commentary, Steve uses his material to build rapport with the audience, so understandably Steve gets much work as a compere or opening act, leaving the room with a warm energy.
'... humorous and chatty' (Funhouse Comedy Club).
Steve N Allen tour dates
Ex-SAS man Gary has performed all over the UK, from the London Comedy Store to the Edinburgh Festival and in was finalist in New Act Of The Year 2009 at the Hackney Empire.
He is an accomplished comic actor (his Macbeth... hilarious) and was nominated Best Comic Actor in 2Days Laughter Short Comedy Festival 2008.
His comic play Salvation Army was produced by First Draft Theatre Company in various theatres in London.
'Highly inventive and very funny' (Frank Skinner)
'Laugh out loud funny, not much in this hour misses the mark' (The Scotsman)
