Bob Mills tour dates
'A comedian and magician. You might have seen him on the telly in Channel 4's 'Dirty Tricks', five's 'Monkey Magic' and Sky One's 'The Secret World of Magic'. He has travelled the world performing his own brand of anarchic magic and now you can catch him performing live.
'He's the bastard son of Jackass and Paul Daniels' (Metro)
'The new poster bot for British comedy magic' (The Daily Telegraph).
'Firman is responsible for making it socially acceptable to say that you like magic again' (The Guardian).
Pete Firman tour dates
His wholly original social commentary, observations and anecdotes are his trade mark. He brings intelligent material as well as simple immature jokes to any room. He enjoys gigging all over the country to any audience, whether he is MC or doing a set. Chris Martin is a keen observer and uses his uniquely twisted logic as he often tackles ‘earth shattering’ problems.
'Hilarious... takes this year's Fringe by the scruff of the neck' (Metro)
'Destined for greatness... he's got charm, anecdotes, callbacks and a worrying father' (The Sunday Times)
'One of the UK's best young observationalists' (The Guardian)
'Charming and good looking... Martin looks to me like a late-stage prototype of the genuine article' (Chortle).
Chris Martin tour dates
After cutting his teeth performing on the pavements of the world and winning the Time Out Street Performer Of The Year Award 1987, he transferred his skills to stand-up. He toured mainly in the USA and Canada, including a support slot for Bob Hope, before returning to his native London in 1994. Over five years on the circuit in this country have seen him rise to one of the most widely respected performers doing the rounds.
'He always gets people laughing through his accomplished stand-up skills, evident in his scalpel-sharp ad-libs and outstanding one-liners' (Chortle)
'Aside from his ability to sustain a single narrative for a full hour, with thought-provoking originality and biting humour, Vincent also uses video to deliver one of the most disarming punch lines you're ever likely to see on the Fringe' (The Scotsman)
'An improvising comedy genius' (The Guardian)
'He possesses the energy of Lee Evans with the improvisational skills of Paul Merton and is one of the best comedians in the business' (The Times)
'Ferociously funny' (The Sunday Times)
'Honesty and truth (and funny lines) are comedy essentials and fortunately Vincent has come more than prepared... this corpulent comic is an utterly welcoming
presence, lacing his blokeish jollity with welcome shots of rage and giggling incomprehension' (Metro).
