Award-winning comedian and writer. He is a co-writer on Alistair McGowan's Big Impression, and a former winner of Channel 4's So You Think You're Funny competition. A master of acutely observed character monologues, combining the sinister and surreal with brilliant sardonic wit.
'A delightfully sour hour, excellently executed' (Evening Standard)
'Sinister and surreal comic creations this side of The League of Gentlemen' (The Sunday Herald).
Alan Francis tour dates
Abi Roberts and her big hair exploded onto the stand-up comedy scene in 2011. She was a Finalist and Runner-Up in the London Comedy Store's Costa Light Comedy Competition in 2012, a Finalist and Runner-Up In the 2012 Harrogate Theatre's Comedian of the Year and took the Audience Award at the same festival. She is a regular weekend act at comedy clubs such as The Glee Club, Jongleurs, The Stand, Bearcat Comedy and Lee Hurst's Backyard Comedy Club, as well as the major independent clubs, such as Crack, The Kings Head, Rip Roar Comedy, Comedy Central at Baby Blue and The Frog and Bucket, Manchester.
"Roberts is brilliant, funny and charming. She's a true comedy genius and one of GQ's Top Ten newer stand-ups you must see' (GQ Magazine)
'Raucous and incredibly funny' (The Daily Telegraph)
"Truly and hysterically funny, Roberts has definitely got the moves. She does it all with genuine charm and character, with big laughs. Abi talks entertainingly, then takes apart Loose Women and she completely, superbly annihilates it. She uses her vocal skills to mock and her Jane McDonald impression is worth seeing alone. Likewise her take on Celine Dion is brilliantly done - clever, funny and well performed. Roberts has an imposing range of talents, she gives a little song too and her impressions are, well, impressive. She really is more than just a stand-up." - Chortle
"Dangerous and hilarious and the very opposite of consensus comedy...(Roberts) has raw but relatable originality and a preternatural comfort with herself onstage and is she is unstoppable. She bounds onstage, robust, already laughing, nimbus of blond hair aswirl, genuinely happy to be there – it’s the rest of life that’s almost unbearable - and takes down target after target, rapid-fire, infectious: the porn-like fantasy of the cooking show, the depredations of shape wear. She’s a master of self-deprecation but doesn’t hinge on it. She has a very graphic bit about her iPod being on shuffle, and she kills with it." - New Statesman, Arts (review of tour support for Michael McIntyre).
"Fast-paced, high-octane comedy with brilliant routines... entertaining throughout and leaves everybody wanting more" (http://www.Gigglebeats.co.uk)
Abi Roberts tour dates
Award winning comedian James Sherwood is resident compere at Cheeky Chappies in London and a regular stand-up comic, touring throughout the UK, including performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and making regular television appearances. His topical material and astute observations are sure to have you laughing. "Imaginative musical jokes and beautifully crafted original comedy songs. The material he offers is fresh, contemporary and pin-sharp original." -Guardian.
James Sherwood tour dates
Don's unique set combines both razor sharp one-liners, with humour about having Dyspraxia (organization and co-ordination difficulties) and mild traits of Asperger's Syndrome, and the effect it has on people, while coming from a middle class Indian family. Also thrown into the mix are quirky observational, political and topical humour.
'A phenomenal gag teller with an engaging stage persona, Don Biswas shows all the signs of a truly great comic' (Hecklers Comedy Club).
