Originally from the Deep South of the USA, and now one of the North West's favourite comics. Reg is one of the good guys of comedy. A hypnotic, smooth-talking, very human comedian who hits your funny bone with tales of love, hate, death and all that is in between.
Reginald has been in the UK for just under two decades and in that time he has become one of the UK Comedy industry’s best-known performers for his distinctive take on subjects including race and sexuality. His work can be brutally honest and is often considered to be controversial but it is always meticulously thought out and he has never been afraid to face challenging issues head on even when the focus is on his own principles or beliefs.
Reg has had a hugely successful career and has become a well-known face of primetime television shows such as Live At The Apollo, and is a frequent guest on Have I Got News For You.
'Searing social commentary, deep south wisdom and juicy punchlines' (The Independent)
'One of the comedy scene's leading players and a figure of rare authority' (The Daily Telegraph).
“Stand-up comedy’s coolest customer” (Telegraph).
“Reginald D Hunter joins the top rank of stand-up comedians working today…A comedian going for broke flying in the face of received opinion in a way that is simply exhilarating...this is comedy of a rare scope” (Times).
Reginald D Hunter tour dates
Controversial street comedian, tabloid headline maker, regular guest on the world's longest running chat show. McSavage's stand-up is fresh and abrasive featuring thoughtful rants and explicit songs.
His cutting commentary and performances cover all aspects of life and nothing is safe from his truth induced interpretations. From The Barman (Mick The Bull) to Father Finnegan to former President Mary Robinson, audiences relate to each character from the many aspects of Irish life.
'He's fearless...it's incredible' - Tommy Tiernan.
David McSavage tour dates
He describes himself as 'The Ubermeister of Comedy who brings a New Order and discipline to the usually more relaxed Comedy scene'. Frank is certainly the man who puts the fun back into fundamental!
'For a truly funny Fuhrer, seek out Frank Sanazi's brilliant Hitler / Sinatra hybrid' - The Stage.
Frank Sanazi tour dates
The only black female comedian on the circuit in Canada, Dana's comedic style is both refreshing and irreverent, drawing her material from her diverse lifestyle, her gay friends and her crazy Jamaican family. Adept, charming and astute, she is warmly funny with an impishly sarcastic sense of humour. This is a lady not to be missed.
'Like a gift from the Comedy Gods' (The Herald)
'An ebullient and instantly likable presence on stage' (Arts Desk)
'... forthright and funny' (Funhouse Comedy CLub).
