Runner up for just about every award going, including BBC New Comedy Award, and organiser of Kill For A Seat comedy nights. 'Supremely talented musical comedian’ (www.BroadwayBaby.com) 'Rarely on TV, occasionally on radio. The title is unrelated. It just made me laugh' (Three Weeks) 'Your funny best friend, only funnier’ (The Herald) 'Honest, heartfelt, slickly delivered, irresistible and, yes, occasionally disturbing stand-up...Relatable, warm and crucially very funny' List 'Equally at home as a compere or main act, Silky has consistently proved himself one of the best and most reliable performers around. Highly recommended' (Leeds Guide) 'Considered and clever: excellent timing and dry delivery revealed a comic at the top of his game' (352 Magazine Luxembourg) 'Always brilliant’ (Metro) '... a very, very funny fella... just brilliant' (John Bishop) '... Silky whose irresistible stage persona combines angriness with silliness. He has a mastery of the descriptive phrase and his mix of self-deprecating wit, music and gently quirky material brings audiences together in tears of laughter (Funhouse Comedy).

A stand up comedian from the Northeast of England. 'Armed with props and a rapid gag rate, former professional wrestler Lee Kyle cuts a confident, if off-beat figure on stage. His jokes veer between the clever and the silly and deliver more than their fair share of belly laughs. Instantly likeable, Lee is quick thinking and witty with a well-written, beautifully crafted and, most importantly, hilarious set of jokes.' (Comedy CV) 'The highlight of the evening... Firing out laughs left, right and centre he managed to hit every person in the room... Lee Kyle was in a league of his own... both quirky and original and had the crowd roaring' (www.gigglebeats.co.uk) 'One of the regions best up-and-coming comic performers' (BBC Radio Tees).
