Ebullient, unpredictable and sincere comic who is just as likely to play a village hall in Scotland as a mainstream venue, 'cos he can! He has been hailed as one of the foremost stand-ups of his generation, taking ideas and situations and extrapolating them into bizarre, tangential, absurd and surreal comic narratives. Eddie's musings have earned him countless awards including two Emmy's. Whilst initially renowned as a comic, Eddie is equally respected as a film, theatre and TV actor as well.

The Perrier Award winner has had huge success as both a writer and performer. He received a BAFTA and a Bronze Rose of Montreux for his Channel 4 sitcom Black Books. His film career has included the smash hit Rom-Com-Zom Shaun Of The Dead, Run Fat Boy Run and A Film With Me In It. His stand up shows have sold out across the world.
Throughout the US, Europe and Australasia Monster, Like Totally and What It Is have cemented this unkempt wordsmith's reputation as one of the foremost comics of his generation earning him the label of 'The Oscar Wilde of Comedy'.
'Jokes as sharp as barbed wire and a comedy brain quicker than a steel trap... Rarely have the rafters of the Playhouse shook so dangerously to the sound of laughter' (The Scotsman)
'A supremely confident performer, his timing for delivering punchlines is something special' (The Daily Telegraph)
'It didn't falter for a moment. This is stand-up comedy of the first order... there's scarcely a word wasted... seriously good fun' (The Times).
Dylan Moran tour dates
Originally from the Deep South of the USA, and now one of the North West's favourite comics. Reg is one of the good guys of comedy. A hypnotic, smooth-talking, very human comedian who hits your funny bone with tales of love, hate, death and all that is in between.
Reginald has been in the UK for just under two decades and in that time he has become one of the UK Comedy industry’s best-known performers for his distinctive take on subjects including race and sexuality. His work can be brutally honest and is often considered to be controversial but it is always meticulously thought out and he has never been afraid to face challenging issues head on even when the focus is on his own principles or beliefs.
Reg has had a hugely successful career and has become a well-known face of primetime television shows such as Live At The Apollo, and is a frequent guest on Have I Got News For You.
'Searing social commentary, deep south wisdom and juicy punchlines' (The Independent)
'One of the comedy scene's leading players and a figure of rare authority' (The Daily Telegraph).
“Stand-up comedy’s coolest customer” (Telegraph).
“Reginald D Hunter joins the top rank of stand-up comedians working today…A comedian going for broke flying in the face of received opinion in a way that is simply exhilarating...this is comedy of a rare scope” (Times).
