Addy van der Borgh has that rare talent of making people laugh as soon as he walks on stage. He is a great performer of highly acclaimed and original material, an ability noticed immediately by the BBC when he appeared on the Stand-up Show on BBC1 after only one year as a comedian. He has subsequently appeared on Live At The Comedy Store for Comedy Central, Live At Jongleurs and The World Stands Up for Sky TV and the BBC3 series from Baby Cow Productions, Brain Candy. He has also written and co-presented twenty episodes of TV Meltdown for Sky 1 with Kirsty Gallacher (2004 / 2005), has acted in a number of voiceovers for radio and television and has appeared on many radio shows including the legendary Loose Ends on Radio 4.

Marlon Davis is a bright young comedian, improviser and actor who embraces his work with energy and charm, embodying his characters and delivering his acute observational material with aplomb.
His act is inspired from his upbringing, exploring Britain and tackling its social issues with skilful characterisations.
Winner of the FHM Search For A Stand-Up Hero Competition in 2009. In 2006, he was a finalist in both the So You Think You're Funny and Laughing Horse new act competitions.
Still a relative newcomer, Marlon Davis is like a breath of fresh air on stage, with an impish grin, boyish enthusiasm and an effortlessly open, confident style that instantly wins him friends in the audience.
'A compelling storyteller whose anecdotes carry the elusive stamp of urban authenticity' (The Scotsman).

Tape Face accesses the inner child in everyone. Through simple, clever and charming humour, he has created one of the most accessible and enjoyable shows the world has ever seen.
Drawing on a heritage that includes silent film, mime, magic, puppetry, Motown and the films of Patrick Swayze, he is a pensive, curious soul approaching every object and audience member as a potential friend – or plaything.
Since Tape Face’s ‘birth’ his shows have sold out around the world during which time he has become a critically acclaimed silent sensation with Simon Cowell comparing him to a modern Charlie Chaplin.
Award-winning Chaplinesque New Zealander who has been compared to Buster Keaton, Harpo Marx and Mr Bean..
'The Boy With Tape on His Face is utterly spectacular! Endlessly inventive, hysterically funny. Fight for a ticket' (Time Out).
'A truly magical experience' (http://www.chortle.co.uk)
'Wills makes a big noise by saying nothing at all' (The Evening Standard)
'Everyone should see The Boy with Tape on His Face' (The Daily Telegraph).
