A veteran of the comedy circuit and a regular at Jongleurs and The Comedy Store, described variously as 'far-fetched and semi-dangerous' and 'silly and daft'. Watch out for his bizarre mixture of stand up and song, including his one string electric squash racquet! His 'songs' are jokes that rhyme, set to a guitar backbeat and cover topics from love and hate, to sex and politics. With a totally original voice he delivers his material with charm and irrelevance.
'... the amiable Pierre Hollins with his compelling chatty style and absurd guitar posturing... With a totally original voice he delivers his material with charm and irrelevance...' (Funhouse Comedy).
Pierre Hollins tour dates
After surviving two rehabs, various detention centres and a childhood on the streets of Hull, Sam draws on his wealth of experience to bring you a humorously cynical (yet optimistic) slant on life.
Mercury New Comedian of the Year Nominee 2008 and Tenfoot City Comedian of the Year Finalist 2008.
'Sam delivers his material like a pro - his timing and emphasis is note perfect' (Chortle 2008).
Sam Harland tour dates
Dublin comic. John's easy going laid back delivery makes him an instant hit with audiences. Within months of starting stand up John appeared on TV screens in RTE's Liffey Laugh's, a remarkable feat for a newcomer.
'The rising star of Irish comedy' (The Sunday Times).
John Lynn tour dates
Extremely distinctive comedy from a former London solicitor.
'Posh and witty... exquisitely funny... one of the new comics making waves' (Time Out)
'His comedy is intelligent and so up-to-date it could be read by Jon Snow' (Cream of
'There's intelligent wit, honesty and more interesting and provocative thoughts in his show than many comics manage in a decade... Andrew Watts is so engaging, so entertaining and so persuasive that we are all sad when his clever, personal and very funny hour comes to an end' (The Scotsman)
'His distinctive style stands out – a winning mixture of pomposity, insecurity and emotional incompetence, while the fury-inducing importance he places on the trivial makes for a winning comic stance' (Chortle)
'Lovers of stand-up laced with a cerebral cutting-edge should, without further prevarication, flock to his show' (Three Weeks).
Andrew Watts tour dates
