Newcastle's best export since Brown Ale. Gavin Webster's style of comedy is loud, sharp and controversial - and audiences love him for it. A definite Geordie, Gavin has superb stage presence. His material is bold and provocative yet delivered in a charming manner - which has brought him much praise and attention.
'Funny, clever and as brilliantly observed as you'll find' (The Scotsman)
'Palpably funny' (The Herald)
'His daftness is little short of surreal genius' (The Stage).
Gavin Webster 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
Simon has been described as the 'rampant antipope of satire' by The Stage after his Edinburgh show Zips, Whips And The Bloody Chains Of Christ.' Simon is a Perrier Award Nominee.
They may have a point!
'Energetic storytelling and acute observations - Bligh juxtaposes his affable, conversational style with a fearless and animated, high-octane comedy performance' (Red Card Comedy Club)
'A great comedian – in yer face and very funny' (The Gazette And Press)
'A manic wide-eyed crazed funny man' (The Evening Standard).
Simon Bligh tour dates
Guildford's own Holly Walsh has many a string to her bow, being a finalist in 2006's So You Think You're Funny? and Funny Women contests, as well as presenting for CBBC. A brilliant purveyor of one-line gags and witty puns.
'She's gifted with snappy wit and crackling talent' (The Guardian)
'She peppers her set with callbacks and clever asides and has easy charm' (The Independent)
'Holly Walsh really impressed... excellent sets and endeared herself through
some assured banter with crowds who really took to her' (British Comedy Guide)
'A talent for smart comic writing and the ability to keep an audience rapt' (The Observer)
'Her steady stream of witty and astute cultural observations belie her dorkiness from the first' (Chortle).
