'A self-obsessed, glittery queen with a larger-than-life personality who arrives on stage in a bamboozling mix of innuendo' (Manchester Evening News)
'An incredible presence on the stage. Mesmerising to watch and an extremely articulate improviser. Fantastic' (XS Malarkey).

Scottish comedian whose highly creative impressions earn him more encores than an impressionist should expect!
Geoff Boyz tour dates
Markus is an original and highly talented stand up. He has been described by the BBC as “the all-round package; witty, controversial, hip, topical, silly. A master of timing and physical comedy." His relationship with the Beeb goes back to his performance at the Edinburgh Festival in 2001 as part of Screaming Blue Murder's Big Value Show and as a finalist in the televised BBC New Comedy Awards 2001. He was nominated for the NZ Comedy Guild Award as Best International Artist 2014.
'The crowd fell for his dry, witty, confused little boy mutt-schtick in a big way' (The Observer)
'Delightfully comic. Controversial, personal and wickedly punchy' (The List)
'Birdman cuts a dashing figure, elegant, smart, theatrical. A hugely entertaining hour of thoughtful, heartfelt, mature comedy, performed with great energy and dynamism... Engagingly mixes the silly and the downright wrong' (Chortle)
'... already on his way up...' (Time Out)
'Second to none' (Adelaide Advertiser)
'Infectious, likeable and popular... A consummate comic... energetic, engaging, thought-provoking and funny' (The Stage).

Andy Askins' air of vulnerability and innocent child-like qualities mislead the crowd heightening the impact of his killer lines. With his guitar and his wickedly dry sense of humour he captivates everybody with an eclectic mix of offbeat comical songs and parodies. A talented musician with an appealing voice and cheeky magnetism, he never fails to leave his mark.
Dark, dark humour and killer timing.
'An awful lot of charm. Although he looks mild-mannered and studious, he actually packs a wry, cheeky wit. There is, most definitely, something warmly alluring about him. His winning persona goes a long way...between the songs, the charming banter works well' (Chortle).
