Mark Ronson's former MC, Doc Brown is the younger brother of best selling author Zadie Smith. The rapper turned to stand-up in 2007 and was a finalist in the So You Think You're Funny new act competition.
He was placed third in the English Comedian Of The Year competition. Brown has featured in the BBC Radio 4 show Do You Know What You Are Saying?
'A seamless mix of truly inspired hip-hop and stand-up. He's a total star... an utter joy' (Time Out)
'Sharp punchlines, imaginative devices and knows more than a thing or two about timing' (Metro).
In 2016 he decided to go back to his hiphop roots.
Doc Brown tour dates
'One of comedy's unsung heroes. Geordie singer, rude, provocative, daft and cheeky...'
John Fothergill tour dates
Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet.
Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation.
'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny)
'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke)
'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).

Best Debut Show Nominee - Leicester Comedy Festival Awards 2009. Jim is an amusingly tattooed, manic depressive former child prodigy with tall tales of his wrongness coming out of his ears. And yet he used to be so nice...what on earth happened? This is his story so far.
Jim has performed in Singapore, Denmark and Los Angeles as well as all over the UK. His stories are brutally honest, always true, and often unbelievable - and have won him an army of fans all over the world.
'Wonderfully gritty... his struggles with mental illness and alcoholism make for impressive comic pickings' (The Guardian)
'It's obvious that Jim Smallman is a natural-born compere. He has such an easy rapport with the audience and tells his tales with a fluidity and energy that keeps everyone attentive' (Chortle)
'Jim Smallman is not just a comic who tells brilliant jokes, he is a heart-warming storyteller, and his experiences will have you captivated and laughing out loud' (Three Weeks).
