David Trent tour dates
Comic creation of John Cooper.
'This character comedy is so assured, odd and sweet, that you can easily see the self...? styled Sunderland simpleton becoming the next score keeper on Shooting Stars. Pensive highlights with uncanny accuracy and unerring honesty the stupidity of places and people. Catch this comic idiot savant before Vic 'n' Bob
snap him up' (The List).
Danny Pensive tour dates
'Toby is an actor, writer and comedian, who has a stupid name that no-one can pronounce or spell. He was born in a small cottage in Ludlow, Shropshire at the turn of the century, and even as a baby, sported a rather manly collection of facial hair.'
Manchester comedy Legend and host of XS Malarkey. Toby was the inaugural winner of The Les Dawson Award, beating a shortlist including Peter Kay, Daniel Kitson, Dave Spikey, Ken Dodd, Caroline Ahearne, Craig Cash and Steve Coogan.
