Never miss another 'John Gordillo' show
Kill For A Seat Comedy: John Gordillo, Dan Bland, Silky
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Stand-up comedian and comedy director John Gordillo who has directed shows for Eddie Izzard and Ealing Live, as well as performing his own impressive material. Starting as a stand-up in the mid-nineties he is still performing his smartly animated routines to this very day.
'… a refreshing performer, with a canon of intelligent, provocative material' (Chortle)
'One of comedy's great thinkers. Heartfelt, intellectual or angry, he's dynamite' (The Times)
'One of our finest stand-ups' (Evening Standard).

Runner-up Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2010 and Manchester Comedy Festival award winner, Dan Bland brings a touch of darkness to the comedy circuit. His morbid disposition owes more to a grumpy undertaker than a genial stand-up comedian. But that funereal facade belies a devilish comic mind that has beguiled countless audiences.
Delivering explosive one-liners with razor-sharp precision, deadpan Dan unfailingly ensures that he is the only person in the room to keep a straight face.
'Like a slow-burning explosive. His deliberate monotone delivery lulls you into a false sense of security, until you suddenly realise you've been hit in the face by a rapid-fire round of blistering wit' (Worksop Guardian)
'Razor-sharp jokes beautifully delivered' (Paul Sinha).
Dan Bland tour dates

'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).
