Off The Rails Comedy Club: Duncan Oakley, Josh Howie, Freddy Quinne, David Ward
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
With musical skills that would easily fit into many rock bands, Duncan Oakley performs an infectious mix of musical comedy and stand up with one of his trusty guitars - Maurice (Fender Strat), No 7 (acoustic) or The Lezza (his Les Paul) by his side.
With an eye and ear for the silly, rude, playful and downright irritating occurrences of life, Duncan musters up songs that don't just make you laugh, they bury into the recesses of your mind and find you humming a tune with a smile on your face 3 days later, confused and wondering where it's come from.
He'll blow you away as he powers out a deft blend of stupidity and truly impressive musicianship (he's nifty on a guitar) and you'll quickly warm to his easy confidence and good natured banter. He never fails to put on a show and one with laughs you’ll remember for years to come.
'There's laughter and there's laughter and if you want to experience real mccoy, genuine, honestly felt, uncontrollable cachinnation the best place is at a Duncan Oakley gig' (Plymouth Herald)
'Oakley's routine deftly mixes the tunes with the stand-up' (City Life)
'... the encore had me in tears of laughter' (BBC)
'Leaping between stupidity and pure brilliance' (Yorkshire Evening Post)

A comedian who intertwines surreal ideas with true comedic tales. His intellectual and non-offensive manner have made him a favourite across the country.
'A young Woody Allen' (Kate Copstick, The Scotsman)
'Excellent, intelligent stand-up... terrific' (Time Out).
Josh Howie tour dates
'An impeccable set... a great storyteller with immense potential' (Worksop Guardian)
'... the effortlessly endearing storyteller, Freddy Quinne with his seemingly endless supply of laughter-laced laconic observations' (Funhouse Comedy).
Freddy Quinne tour dates
Presenter, writer and comedian David Ward, is fast making his name on the comedy circuit. David is a friendly, upbeat presenter with an intelligent yet warm and cheeky outlook that gives him a unique and gentle bite. Fluid, quick thinking and lively, David's spontaneity has made him the choice host for the BBC's New Comedy Awards heats, as well as the rounds for C5's So You Think You're Funny? David's Edinburgh show The Whole Truth and Nothing But... in 2007 was performed to great acclaim, proving his skills as a writer, storyteller and actor in addition to his presenting and stand-up skills.
