John Warburton tour dates
Infamous Scots comedian with his own brand of hard hitting social observation and topical satire.
'Scotland's top satirical stand-up' (Morning Star)
'Gleefully indulgent, highly appealing' (The Guardian)
'Affable and abrasive...nothing short of superb' (The Scotsman)
'... lively, sharp and skilful' (Time Out)
Vladimir McTavish tour dates
David Longley has been described as 'a difficult comedian to define; on the one hand, abrasive, crude and insulting and on the other, articulate, intelligent and disarmingly funny' (http://www.gagreflex.co.uk)
'Acid tongued and as sharp as a barrel full of tacks... As intense and
intelligent performer as you're likely to see' (The List)
'Intelligent, silly, thought-provoking and filthy... Proves that comedy can say something important and, crucially, still be funny' (Metro)
'A uniquely fascinating act... A must see' (Steve Bennet, Chortle).
David Longley tour dates
Possessed of a fabulously manic energy, Phil has established a reputation as a unique, reliable and exciting act. A regular MC on the national circuit, his natural and instantly likeable style has proved a hit with promoters and audiences alike. Phil regularly MCs at big weekend clubs such as Highlight and the Frog and Bucket, where he has his own night at both the Preston and Manchester venue.
'Ellis sets such a cracking pace. He flits around the audience with his frisky, easy banter spreading a feeling of good humoured fun' (Chortle)
'... delighting both children and (on a rather different level) adults alike' (The Daily Telegraph)
'I cannot imagine the being that would not be blown away by this ridiculously funny, shambolic gigglefest of a show' (The Scotsman)
'Wildly inappropriate... chaotic, gloriously silly' (Time Out).
