This charming Geordie motor-mouth has audiences in the palm of his hand, even when discussing the most near the knuckle subjects. With material ranging from the supernatural to euthanasia, everything is delivered with a cheeky smile that wins over even the most stony faced of the audience.
A finalist in various high profile competitions such as Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy Search, his twinkly eyed, playful demeanour disarms judging panels, industry experts and audiences alike, allowing him flirt coquettishly with topics that are traditionally a little more unusual.

'Razor sharp humour' (Metro)
'... the appealing and perceptive Barry Dodds... captivates his audiences with his energy, spirit and tantalizing wit. His mix of surprisingly uncanny and irrepressibly cheeky material leaves them wanting for more' (Funhouse Comedy).
Luton's lapsed choir boy, and one of the funniest people in British comedy, dubbed the new Lenny Henry, he has a string of TV credits including Never Mind The Buzzcocks and In The Dark With Junior Simpson. A TV and film favourite...remember the wedding DJ in Love Actually?
A true observational comic Simpson finds his humour in the everyday and humdrum with anecdotes of his world travels as a comedian adding a personal originality to his set.
'A favourite on the stand-up circuit, TV and radio' (BBC)
'Watch that man!' (The Guardian).

Comedy genius is an over used term and Damion Larkin is not a comedy genius. However, he really is very good indeed.
This former stockbroker quit his lucrative profession in August 2004 to live the dream and has never looked back. He went full time in 2005 and is now destitute, relying on state handouts and begging.
There are no genuine comparisons to this man. He is a versatile and creative comedian who always leaves audiences wanting more.
