Tony has also written for wide variety of comedians including Lily Savage, Brian Conley, Steve Coogan and Johnny Vegas.
'Always clever, often hilarious' (The Scotsman)
'A demon set and staggering stage presence...' (The Big Issue).
Tony Burgess tour dates
Comedian, writer and actor from the town of Bexleyheath, South East London.
'Toal's ease of interacting with the audience is a true talent' (Hairline)
'Funny and touching. Winning over his audience with charm, genuine depth of feeling, and free tiny yoghurts, Toal painted an impressive, and at times, disturbing picture of a man on the edge... humour from the heart' (Three Weeks)
'Master of storytelling' (http://www.PunchlineUK.wordpress.com)
'You might find yourself taking a paracetemol to kill the pain in your jawline
'We forget the misery and cold of the outside as the Tom Toal comedy glow warms
us all' (Kate Copstick)
'Touching addition to the Daniel Kitson-esque heart-on-sleeve comedy sub genre' (List).
Tom Toal tour dates
One of the new crop of emerging acts, Ian Smith employs a careful, unhurried delivery that conceals a nicely pointed attitude with a sack full of neat gags to match.
'Fantastically funny' (The Times)
'Star of the future' (Time Out).
'... delightfully offbeat writing, a mastery of phrasing and summons up some fine comic images. A talent, for sure' (http://www.chortle.co.uk).
Ian Smith tour dates
A great young comic from Adelaide, Australia.
'Having travelled all over the world to entertain people with his high energy persona, he has been awarded the Best International Guest two years running by the NZ comedy guild. Full of life and charisma he delivers his material with genuine fervour and has his audiences crying with laughter' (Funhouse Comedy)
'His material is all delivered with such bawling gusto that it's a joy to take in'
(Edinburgh Evening News).
Mickey D 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).
