Rich Wilson has loved comedy ever since his older next door neighbour gave him a cassette of Eddie Murphy - Delirious.'It was the most mindblowing thing I'd ever heard. My young ears had never heard language like it.'
His comedy aspirations lay dormant until he got a job as a barman at a comedy club in Greenwich, South London. Then in 2004 following some back slapping by those around him, Rich Wilson hit the stage and even amazing himself, hasn't looked back since.
'Highly entertaining' (Time Out)
'Effortlessly funny, smart and filthy. Recommended' (Leicester Mercury)
'He's a very, very funny man' (Frank Skinner).

The only black female comedian on the circuit in Canada, Dana's comedic style is both refreshing and irreverent, drawing her material from her diverse lifestyle, her gay friends and her crazy Jamaican family. Adept, charming and astute, she is warmly funny with an impishly sarcastic sense of humour. This is a lady not to be missed.
'Like a gift from the Comedy Gods' (The Herald)
'An ebullient and instantly likable presence on stage' (Arts Desk)
'... forthright and funny' (Funhouse Comedy CLub).
Dana Alexander tour dates
'A great performer' (The Edinburgh Evening News)
'Has audiences laughing and cringing with just the right intensity' (Chortle)
'Chris is just a funny, funny guy... am laughing now just thinking about his big stupid face' (Tom Stade).
Chris Conroy tour dates
'One of comedy's unsung heroes. Geordie singer, rude, provocative, daft and cheeky...'
John Fothergill tour dates
With more than half a decade on the comedy circuit, Matthew has travelled the globe with his own unique brand of unashamedly middle class comedy, sharing stories of growing up and getting old in the leafy suburbs of middle England. As a father of six he draws much of his humour from tales of parenthood which ring true with audiences of all ages.
