Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet.
Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation.
'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny)
'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke)
'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).

Inel Tomlinson exudes the type of magnetic charm, charisma and talent that instantly demands your attention whether on TV, stage or radio. Coupled with an electric smile and the world’s loudest laugh, it’s hard not to fall for his exuberant personality, which radiates throughout his extensive body of work.
As one half of Johnny & Inel, the UK’s first black comedy double act, Inel showcases his diverse acting and writing talents as he embodies a plethora of colourful comic roles on their hit CBBC TV show ‘The Johnny & Inel Show’. As two of the channel’s best-loved personalities, they have also donned their presenting hats for Junior Vets on Call where they have come face to face with animals in need, small and large.
Not content with taking Kids TV by storm, the duo have taken control of the airwaves with their ‘Live & Loud’ radio show on Fubar Radio. The show allows uncensored access to their unique humour as they discuss the latest social media trends, TV shows and take on ‘agony uncle’ roles to tackle listeners problems.
Inel is a popular choice on the voiceover circuit due to his versatile vocal ability, which allows him to embody a whole spectrum of characters with low to high range voices. He has recently brought to life the energetic fun ‘Rex’ in Cbeebies ‘Footy Pups’ and will be voicing Agent A Gent in the new CBBC Zig & Zag cartoon in early 2016.
He regularly performs at live comedy shows all over the country where his portrayals of interesting characters coupled with his mixture of comedic timing, nostalgia and eye for the ridiculous keeps the audience in stitches from start to finish.
His standup comedy experience led him to set up Kinetic Comedy; a lively multicultural monthly event that showcases the best up and coming comedy acts interspersed with games, competitions and music.
