Daliso is a versatile African comedian equally comfortable talking politics, romance, filth or religion. As such, he has performed in such diverse venues as churches, casinos, strip clubs and sports bars and was a finalist on Britain's Got Talent 2017. He has lived in countries where the press is not allowed to criticize the government, and in others with no libel laws where they can say anything. He has been both a journalist and a jaded newsreader.
Daliso has appeared at many festivals that have included Melbourne, Edinburgh, Singapore and Cape Town Festivals. He is also a prolific fiction writer and has had his science fiction, murder mysteries and fantasy fiction published in numerous magazines and anthologies. He also co-wrote a play that aired on BBC Radio 4.
'Full of extravagant gestures and impassioned speeches. He inspires whoops and cheers from his watchers. Highly recommended' (BBC)
'A joy to listen to. Provocative, poignant and ultimately hilarious' (The Guardian)
'I laughed so much I thought I'd pass out!' (The List)
'It takes a special kind of act to work on both sides of the Atlantic (as well as across Africa), but it seems an easy transition as he compels the crowd with his racial and socially insightful comedy' (News and Star, Carlisle)
'Absolutely [took] the roof off the place. Brilliant, brilliant act' (The Frog and Bucket).
Daliso Chaponda tour dates
Anecdotal, observational and refreshingly honest. Gerry differs from many black comedians in that his experiences are not what you'd expect from this Eastender raised in rural Essex.
He has played at The Comedy Store, The Bearcat and Downstairs at The Kings Head in addition to TV's Take The Mike and a cameo on Jimmy Carr's Xmas DVD. What you see is certainly not what you get. You may recognise his face from TV’s ‘The Bill’ and ‘FHM Comedy Heroes’.
'His humorous stories and factual tales are told with a ‘twinkle in the eyes’ and leave his audiences crying with laughter' (Funhouse Comedy).
Gerry Kyei tour dates
A former solicitor, Keith has the natural ability to delve into themes other comics may shy away from and it is this aptitude that is placing him in the lead of investigative comedians. He has been a regular guest on radio, both in Ireland and the UK, from BBC, RTE, Talk Sport, Today FM, Newstalk and all sorts of other warm and welcoming studios.
Keith Farnan has performed as a stand-up all over the world, from Montreal, to Amsterdam, to Hong Kong.
His television credits include BBC3's Most Annoying People, One Night Stand (BBC), Liffey Laughs (RTE) and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow (BBC1).
He has also written for and performed in The Insomniac Club for BBC Radio as well as appearing on Loose Ends and Colin Murphy's Great Unanswered Questions (BBCNI).
'... If Eddie Izzard had been Irish, he'd surely have turned out a lot like Keith Farnan' (The Scotsman)
'Brilliant, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny' (Time Out).
Keith Farnan tour dates
Sally-Anne is charming and popular, with a winning brand of autobiographical humour. She'll take you on a journey through her slightly eccentric world, including insights into the female psyche and her compulsion to send off spoof job applications.
'Small-time country posh life versus young lady breaking into the stand-up circuit. Fabulous!' (BBC London Live)
'It's easy to imagine Hayward at the 02 or guesting on QI. She is a crowd-pleaser and a straightforward observational comic, but so are most of Britain's favourite comedians today. Hayward is easily the equal of any of them' (The Skinny)
'Innate effusive likeability with straightforward but effective writing... a primetime act' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'Exceptionally funny' (The Independent).
