Since coming to the UK, the Canadian has built up a reputation as a popular and highly recommended comedian. He is willing to tackle a huge range of topics, from the obscure to the familiar, from a simple gag to quirky, inventive, rambling anecdotes with unexpected punchlines. Even if he occasionally seems to lose sight of where he's going, at least you know he's taking the audience with him.
'Wonderfully imaginative, original and hilarious' (Rhod Gilbert)
'So cool he could well be the answer to global warming. Gloriously funny silly and smart' (The Scotsman)
'UnmissablE' (Edinburgh Evening News)
'Rock 'n' roll comedian. Absolutely boxfresh; nothing is staid about Stade' (Evening Standard)
'One of the best practitioners of stand-up we've got... stand-up elite' (Chortle)
'An insider's tip for comedy greatness... comic riffs of monumental proportions'
Tom Stade tour dates
Cardiff-based stand-up comedian. A versatile comic actor whose character creation 'Rex' is a regular feature on Rhod Gilbert's BBC Radio Wales show, Elis' profile has been boosted with frequent appearances on BBC Radio One Wales, two critically acclaimed Edinburgh solo shows (The Most Cautious Little Boy in Wales – 2009, and Daytripper – 2010) plus numerous appearances on the UK comedy circuit including tour support act for Rhod Gilbert.
For Elis's 2009 Edinburgh Fringe offering, The Most Cautious Little Boy In Wales, he was subsequently selected for the Best Of The Edinburgh Fest Australian tour, an honour that has been bestowed in previous years to the likes of Dylan Moran, Ross Noble, Simon Pegg and Ardal O'Hanlon. He has also extensively toured Daytripper at the Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane comedy festivals.
'He hypnotises the audience into loving him. There's also a laugh every ten seconds or so which overall makes it a complete joy' (Time Out)
'An intensely likable performer, he manages to get the audience to share in the heat of his unlikely passion, and you'll be rooting for him throughout his various misadventures' (The Guardian).
Elis James tour dates
Scottish Comedian Of The Year 2006 returns with his dark, sarcastic, hilarious take on the world. A mix of dark humour with cutting observations and clever one-liners.
Prepare to be shocked.
'A star in the making' (The List)
'An unquestionably talented writer and performer... great jokes, and lots of them' (The Daily Telegraph)
'A remarkably accomplished stage presence... blistering material which pushes dangerously near the boundaries of good taste' (The Sunday Times).
Mark Nelson tour dates
Cornish born and London based, Matt has established himself as a headline act on the UK and European circuits. His work takes him from London and St Ives (Cornwall) to Maastricht and Zagreb (Croatia).
He has also played to audiences in Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, Slovenia, The Czech Republic and the United Arab Emirates. Matt is at his very best as a live performer.
'Price is a terrific comedian and wonderful storyteller …. His Cornish burr becomes the whole bestiary of appalling characters that populate this gripping tale that engenders a gasp for every guffaw' (The Scotsman).
