Laughing Horse New Act of the Year Winner in 2010. 'Deane's well timed deadpan delivery was on cue every time, he'll definitely be one to watch' (Medway News) 'A particularly nice line in understated pay-offs' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard) 'Well written gags, well executed one liners' (Chortle) '... he's able to generate a stream of seriously good gags, the kind of quick, sharply written and endlessly repeatable lines that'll always keep a comic in work and an audience richly entertained' (The Guardian) 'It's just a matter of time before Julian Deane gets a boost up the comedy rankings... His trick is to make you think you're watching standard stand-up fare, then twisting expectations with sharp, original punchlines' (The Independent).

Jonathan Elston is a fresh, punchy, gag-driven comic who combines sharp joke writing and quirky observations with a youthful likability that charms his audience and endears him to any room. However, as with many top comics, success means is Jonathan rarely to be found out of a coach or car. The carbon footprint that Jonathan has created since his career began is big enough to have destroyed a football pitch sized hole in the Brazilian rainforest! Despite the havoc he is wreaking on the rainforests, Jonathan is steadfast in his focus and continues to be one of the most sought after young acts working the circuit. 'A young comic with incredible talent' (The Guardian).

"Apollo-quality" **** - Three Weeks "McDonnell is a cut above the rest" **** - Broadway Baby "A forceful, leave-no-pauses onslaught" - Chortle "Candid and insightful" - The Irish Post Ryan is a multi-award winning comedian from Northern Ireland. You might find him performing regularly at any of the UK's top comedy venues, or further afield on the international circuit. There's a chance you could bump into him supporting someone infinitely more successful than himself on tour. It is even a remote possibility that you've already encountered one of his shows at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival. It's unlikely that you've revelled in many of his TV and radio appearances, but surely somebody must have.
