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
Watching The Young Ones with his brothers as an eight year old, at two in the morning on Comic Relief, he realised then that he wanted to be funny in some way. Relaxed and improvisatory, Andrew Bird is one of those rare comedians who makes friends with his audiences in an instant with his engaging mix of childhood stories and more recent anecdotes.
He has supported Rhod Gilbert, Lee Hurst and Michael McIntyre as well as performing internationally.
'Superb... the exciting rising star' (Time Out)
'A natural comedian' (The Stage)
'Beautifully observed and insightful... not only an entertaining story but a very funny hour of fine stand-up' (Chortle)
'Effortlessly engaging and funny as hell' (Rhod Gilbert).
Andrew Bird tour dates
Leicester mercury Comedian of the Year Nominee and BBC New Comwedy Award Finalist.
Since starting stand-up in 2009, Chris's sharply written gags, assured stage presence and commanding delivery have established him as one of the best young comics on the circuit.
'An exemplary writer of quotable gags' (Chortle).
Chris Turner tour dates
Lloyd started comedy in 2009 and now performs regularly on professional nights at comedy clubs all across the UK. His confidence and ability to easily engage with the audience has earned him a number of compering residencies, including Get Up Stand Up in London and Therapy Rooms Comedy Club in Tunbridge Wells.
'Inherently funny: voice of an angel' body of a trucker... very neat lines in his comic repertoire' (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
'... the next big thing’(FHM)
'There's no doubt about it; Lloyd Griffith is the king of the unexpected. His sense of fun is infectious, his singing voice faultless and his anecdotes are told with boundless confidence. Griffith has clearly established his own style of comedy' (Three Weeks).
