Never miss another 'Duncan Oakley' show
Comedy At The Works: Duncan Oakley, Josh Howie, Captain Third Eye, James Cook
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
With musical skills that would easily fit into many rock bands, Duncan Oakley performs an infectious mix of musical comedy and stand up with one of his trusty guitars - Maurice (Fender Strat), No 7 (acoustic) or The Lezza (his Les Paul) by his side.
With an eye and ear for the silly, rude, playful and downright irritating occurrences of life, Duncan musters up songs that don't just make you laugh, they bury into the recesses of your mind and find you humming a tune with a smile on your face 3 days later, confused and wondering where it's come from.
He'll blow you away as he powers out a deft blend of stupidity and truly impressive musicianship (he's nifty on a guitar) and you'll quickly warm to his easy confidence and good natured banter. He never fails to put on a show and one with laughs you’ll remember for years to come.
'There's laughter and there's laughter and if you want to experience real mccoy, genuine, honestly felt, uncontrollable cachinnation the best place is at a Duncan Oakley gig' (Plymouth Herald)
'Oakley's routine deftly mixes the tunes with the stand-up' (City Life)
'... the encore had me in tears of laughter' (BBC)
'Leaping between stupidity and pure brilliance' (Yorkshire Evening Post)

Josh Howie tour dates
Compere at The Comedy Kav at Patrick Kavanagh Bar in Birmingham.
'Not to be confused with the explorer, the bass player in the Arctic Monkeys, a character off of Skins, the BBC's Scotland correspondent, the Australian Rules footballer, the boxer, the square in Middlesbrough, the University in Queensland or the type of Mercedes Mini-van' (James's website)
'An award-winning commercial radio presenter and stand-up comedian his laid back attitude, dry sense of humour and sharp tongue are a rare mix that always fascinates his audiences' (Funhouse Comedy).
