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).
Junior Simpson tour dates
The charismatic star of Radio One Sunday nights is fast becoming one of the hottest tickets in UK stand-up. Winner of the 2007 Chortle Student Comedian of the Year, Tom made his Edinburgh Festival solo debut in 2009 and can be seen daily on BBC Switch's 5.19 show.
Tom has made guest appearances on BBC2’s The Rob Brydon Show, Dave’s One Night Stand and ITV2’s Fake Reaction and in 2017 performed at The Melbourne Comedy Festival Roadshow in sold-out, 1000-seater theatres.
'Slick stagecraft, bags of energy' (Chortle)
'A mighty fine comic' (The Guardian)
'With looks, confidence, charm and great material, expect other comedians to
lynch him' (The Sunday Times).
Tom Deacon tour dates
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.
'Hugely enjoyable... a ton of great stories... one to watch' (The Guardian)
'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).
Barry Dodds tour dates
Comic creation of John Cooper.
'This character comedy is so assured, odd and sweet, that you can easily see the self...? styled Sunderland simpleton becoming the next score keeper on Shooting Stars. Pensive highlights with uncanny accuracy and unerring honesty the stupidity of places and people. Catch this comic idiot savant before Vic 'n' Bob
snap him up' (The List).
