Comedian, compere and playwright. This grumpy old man per excellence presents the BBC Radio 4 show 'Excess Baggage' and has written four plays including 'An Evening With Gary Lineker' and 'Live Bed Show'. His stand-up topics range from vigorous yodelling to mediaeval literature via death by drink. His delivery is relaxed and sardonic, but his shows are a surprising, dark and witty treat. He's also one of the many 'Grumpy Old Men' that appear on BBC 2's hit show. 'The funniest and most honest comic of his generation' (The List).

Laughing Horse New Act of the Year Winner in 2010. 'Deane's well timed deadpan delivery was on cue every time, he'll definitely be one to watch' (Medway News) 'A particularly nice line in understated pay-offs' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard) 'Well written gags, well executed one liners' (Chortle) '... he's able to generate a stream of seriously good gags, the kind of quick, sharply written and endlessly repeatable lines that'll always keep a comic in work and an audience richly entertained' (The Guardian) 'It's just a matter of time before Julian Deane gets a boost up the comedy rankings... His trick is to make you think you're watching standard stand-up fare, then twisting expectations with sharp, original punchlines' (The Independent).
