One of that not so rare breed, a mad, hard-drinking ginger-haired Scotsman, Brian Higgins is also one of that rarer set – he's funny! A favourite with students, he manages to both ignore and play up to the stereotype to laugh both with and at it, in a spellbinding set that covers everything from a 'loony childhood', his former days as a paramedic (honest), as well as life's ups and downs in an always topical set.
Described as the 'people's favourite comedian' by The Stage, combined with his energetic delivery, he never fails to deliver the goods.
'Daft but very funny' (The Guardian)
'The people's favourite comedian' (The List)
'A live wire and skilful' (Time Out)
'Brian Higgins, who has been likened to an early Billy Connolly... delivers his diatribe on life's funny - and not so funny - ups and downs in an energetic style that has made him a favourite both in the UK and as far afield as Dubai' (Funhouse Comedy).

Uniquely stubborn, outright impractical and undeniably hilarious.

He also reached the final of So You Think You’re Funny? and been nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Award.
'Effortlessly hilarious. He captivates the audience with his perfectly timed suspenseful silences and plain-talking sense-making' (Three Weeks)
'... firm highlight' (The Scotsman).

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
Simon has been described as the 'rampant antipope of satire' by The Stage after his Edinburgh show Zips, Whips And The Bloody Chains Of Christ.' Simon is a Perrier Award Nominee.
