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).

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. An articulate and natural raconteur, he possesses an innate ability to riff with an audience like they’re old friends. His warm and hilarious tales, told with true passion never fail to captivate the crowd. His television credits include Russell Howard’s Good News, Edinburgh Comedy Show, Live At The Comedy Store and Engineering Giants. 'Magical storytelling... a rare talent... hysterical and accomplished' (Time Out) 'The gods of comedy chose greatness for Tom' (The Scotsman).

'He stood on stage and appeared very shy, awkward, lacking any emotion, and then proceeded to make a string of jokes about his ‘wild’ lifestyle – which went down a storm with the audience' - northwestend.co.uk

A tall, gangly Northerner who delivers his own brand of no-nonsense humour. He has made appearances on Just A Minute, Have I Got News For You, Mock The Week and Nevermind The Buzzcocks. 'A master storyteller, holding the audience before dropping an exploding but simple punchline...' (Metro) 'Filled with prime laugh-out-loud stupid moments' (The List, Glasgow & Edinburgh) '... real craft and creativity... results that satisfy both the comedy purists and those who simply want big laughs on a big night out' (The Guardian) 'The best, as well as the most natural stand-up I've seen' (The Independent) 'Alun Cochrane's ability to make the little things in life a comedy goldmine is phenomenal' (Chortle) 'Brilliant no-frills stand-up comedy' (The List) 'A no-nonsense comedian who specialises in funny nonsense' (Camberley Theatre).
