"A charmingly confident performer, an accomplished musician and a clever comic… The funniest songs I have heard in a long time" The Scotsman
Former Time Out Comedian of the Year, smart-suited Geordie Richard Morton is full of surprises and manic energy. His self-depreciating manner belies a razor sharp talent and with witty observations he tackles a plethora of life's situations in his hilarious songs. He's supported the likes of Jack Dee, Lee Evans, Jo Brand and Eddie Izzard on tour as well as having many TV credits to his name including Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Channel 4’s The Stand-Up Show
'Comic genius' - The Daily Express
'His hilarious songs give musical comedy a good name' - The Guardian
Josh Pugh won English Comedian of the Year 2016 only two years after playing his first gig. Josh’s clever, original, and (most importantly) very funny writing and performing continues to bring in plaudits, from Chortle to the Londonist to the London Evening Standard, and he undoubtedly has a blindingly bright future.

Now a solo headline act all over the globe, Christian uses his improvisations, sharp wit, youthful energy, guitar skills and vocal mimicry to target histrionic rock bands, musical theatre and morose indie musicians with his charming onstage confidence machine-gunning impossibly catchy tunes with hysterical lyrical content. His solo Edinburgh Festival Show, ‘Lost In Music’ was sold out, critically acclaimed and was the winner of the 'Spirit Of The Fringe' Award. In 1999 Christian started playing guitar and singing for the American comic polymath Rich Hall. High points included winning the Perrier Award in 2001 for "Rich Hall is Otis Lee Crenshaw", being on subsequent CD and DVD releases, seeing the world, appearing on stage with Seinfeld star Michael Richards and getting on Late Night with Conan O' Brien. He was a regular on a BBC radio show with the Richard Herring, called That Was Then, This Is Now that was critically acclaimed and lasted for 3 series. This led to a key role in Herring’s groundbreaking podcast, As It Occurs To Me which ran for three years and won a Chortle award for best internet comedy and appearances on Radio 2’s ‘Jammin’. 'So much biblical gusto and zest it is impossible not to be possessed by his optimistic persona' (Broadway Baby). 'If you’re a fan of Bill Bailey or Rich Hall, you’re probably a Christian Reilly fan already' (The Guardian). ‘LOLternative Rock’.
