Featuring

Troy Hawke

Troy Hawke appearing at this event

Troy is a matinee idol born in the wrong era. Homeschooled by his elderly mother for the most part of his life, he has recently emerged blinking into a modern day dystopian present with the naivety of a newborn fawn. 'Undeniably funny' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Intelligent and effective satire ... a character of real comic integrity' **** (BroadwayBaby.com).

Anthony King

Anthony King appearing at this event

Anthony's devilishly droll deadpan humour, masterful timing and delivery of a stream of one-liners combine to make him one of the most polished performers on the circuit. His act is a combination of his own true-life experiences mixed in with a whole bunch of lies. TV appearances include Granada's Mad For It, Meridian's House Of Fun and UK Gold's Live At Jongleurs. 'King of the one-liners' (BBC London Live) 'Anthony King with his droll deadpan humour and sharp one-liners... His mix of stand-up, dark, dry, silly and disturbing songs are both amusing and intriguing' (Funhouse Comedy).

Pete Teckman

Pete Teckman appearing at this event

Stand-up comedian who made his performing debut in February 2008 and has since progressed from open spots and gong show competitions to regular paid work and a growing reputation. Pete is comfortable with a set from 5 to 20 minutes and has also proved himself to be a very popular MC / compere and after dinner speaker. 'Well written, hard hitting gags that just keep coming…. if every act was half as good you'd have a blinder' (That Time of the Month, Newport Pagnell) 'Excellent. He starts with a strong series of gags... and gets better from there' (Martin Mullaney, Cheeky Monkey Comedy, Birmingham) 'A mature comedy performance that had the audience eating out of his hand' (Nigel Rushby, TNT Comedy) 'What a performance... ballachingly funny' (Paul Savage, Speakeasy Comedy) 'Epitomised the taking of difficult, painful situations in life and turning it into great comedy' (Lou Chawner).

The audience weren’t just warmed up, but pretty hysterical even before the first act of the night hit the stage.” Huffington Post “On flights of fancy, he pushes ideas to extremes and displays a crackling, spontaneous energy in which we’re swept up.” Fest
