A veteran of the comedy circuit and a regular at Jongleurs and The Comedy Store, described variously as 'far-fetched and semi-dangerous' and 'silly and daft'. Watch out for his bizarre mixture of stand up and song, including his one string electric squash racquet! His 'songs' are jokes that rhyme, set to a guitar backbeat and cover topics from love and hate, to sex and politics. With a totally original voice he delivers his material with charm and irrelevance.
'... the amiable Pierre Hollins with his compelling chatty style and absurd guitar posturing... With a totally original voice he delivers his material with charm and irrelevance...' (Funhouse Comedy).
Pierre Hollins tour dates
Sean honed his unique, storytelling style over 18 years. In 2000, his hard work and determination led to his receiving two prestigious Canadian Comedy Award nominations for 'Best Male Stand Up' and for his half hour 'Comic's Comedy Special' on CBC.
Fuelled by the desire to play to a more international audience, Sean left Canada for the UK and, within the five years that he has resided in Britain, he has written and performed three highly successful Edinburgh Festival shows, receiving rare, five star reviews and one of only a few Best of Fest accolades.
Sean Collins tour dates
Star of Sky1's Brainiac and an established stand-up comedian, having toured with Rhod Gilbert on his Award Winning Mince Pie tour and performed at the Comedy Store, Jongleurs, The Bearcat and XS Malarkey to name a few.
Joe is also the creator of Morgan Berry, Pet Bereavement Counsellor.
'... has the unique ability to take a cold room and reduce it to fits of laughter' (GQ Magazine)
'Bags of madcap energy and an instant daft allure... It is his use of very specific and nonsensical language that is so captivatingly funny' (Chortle)
'Ridiculous in its simplicity but with a lot of obviously thought-through preparation, this is an amazing example of how to do it right' (Graeme Connelly on Morgan Berry).
Joe Rowntree tour dates
Affable quick-witted banter merchant Sam Avery wanted to be a rock star! It nearly happened! Snapped up by music bigwigs at the tender age of 17 and touring with Motorhead and Ice T, he quickly developed a taste for sweat and snakebite.
'A comic you just know is gonna be big' (http://www.Manchestercomedy.com).
