Carl started performing stand-up regularly in the early part of 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the most exciting new comics currently climbing the comedy ladder.
Despite still being a relative newcomer, his confident, conversational style and childish sense of humour has seen him become a regular at clubs all over the country including various universities as part of the Avalon Comedy Network.

'Skinhead, intellectual, and specialist compere, Roger Monkhouse employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience' (Glee)
'His laconic delivery shields an engaging persona and an enquiring mind' (The Guardian)
'Pulls punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air... Saucy - and uncompromisingly so -
sometimes topical, sometimes punny, sometimes clever, sometimes daft... There is, in short, something in this varied comedy menu for every taste... A gifted natural... One of the consummate professionals of the stand-up circuit' (Chortle)
'... one of the most experienced acts in the business. His deadpan style and quick wit make him one of the best acts out there, and he is a regular fixture at top venues all over the country, as well as performing extensively throughout the rest of the world' (Funhouse Comedy).

'Allyson Smith reminds me of a younger, prettier, funnier me' (Stewart Francis)
'She judged the crowd perfectly, confidently pushing boundaries and then skillfully drawing the crowd back to where she wants to take them to next, a pro, a pleasure to work with and it goes without saying, hilarious' (Laughing Cows).
Allyson June Smith tour dates
A dab hand at singing, acting, presenting, stand-up comedy and playing guitar, Jonny Awsum has a crowd-pleasing set that's seen him smash thousands of gigs all around the world.
