Stephen K Amos has charmed and entertained audiences all over the world with his natural, assured delivery and his honest, original material. Amos is filled with an almost child-like joy and exuberance and can find the funny in some of the most unexpected places.
'As his autobiographical sitcom plays out on Radio 4, Amos is officially becoming a national treasure. Expect more warm insight and spiky charm here' (The Sunday Times)
'It was all fabulous. But it was when riffing with the audience that Amos truly excelled. With a packed venue ready on his side, Amos drew people into his routines; his finely honed sensibility turned innocent remarks into comedy gold' (Herald Sun)
'Uplifting stand-up from a charming performer' (Time Out)
'A note-perfect hour' (Metro).
Stephen K Amos tour dates
An absurd and delirious duo with startling visual comedy and surreal slapstick - Charlie Chaplin meets Salvadore Dali! Despite their comedy being noticeably absent of the usual stand-up repartee and gags, they have managed in recent years to become one of the must-see acts of the Edinburgh Festival. Expect big things from this bizarre pair.
The Men In Coats tour dates
A loose-limbed, physical comedian who has had a rapid rise through the ranks and has been nominated for a Perrier Award. His shows are packed full of riotous exuberance and caricature. Combining a fearless onstage presence, unshakeable confidence and streetwise hyperactive delivery, Terry leaves his audience exhilarated and exhausted with laughter.
Terry Alderton is an outstanding comic (and ex-Southend goalkeeper) who holds the record for the most encores at the Comedy Store.
'People keep asking me what is the best Edinburgh Festival show I've seen so far. The answer is simple - Terry Alderton' (The Sun)
'One of the best live shows I've ever seen. He's a f***ing genius!' Frank Skinner
'... effortlessly enjoyable yet excitingly different' (The Times).
Terry Alderton tour dates
One of the most popular comedians on the London circuit with her skewed observations that are sometimes dark, sometimes political, hopefully relevant, but usually just bizarre.
'Her strength is in performance, confident, punchy' (Chortle).
Debra-Jane Appleby tour dates
'Boothby Graffoe is a multi-talented, darkly hilarious, grade A British eccentric, who can twist your funny bone one minute, and break your heart the next. A musical comedy act who is more musical than most musicians, and funnier than most comedians.' - Stewart Lee
'If I had to compare him to anyone, it would be Spike Milligan.' - Omid Djalili
