‘Inspired storytelling and wickedly witty asides mixed with fantastic vocal mimicry’ – bbc.co.uk
Fresh from 16 sold-out nights at Manchester Arena with the Phoenix Nights Comic Relief shows, Archie, aka ‘Kenny Senior’ is ‘stand-up of the very highest order’ (City Life) with his inspired storytelling and fantastic vocal mimicry. He has further TV credits including ‘Coronation Street’, ‘Shameless’, ‘Emmerdale’ and ‘The Street’. He is an effortless master of bone dry anecdotes laced with a pinch of well-aimed vitriol and served with a garnish of razor-sharp song parodies. Tawdry cookery analogies aside Mr Kelly is a dynamite comedic entity who will ensure belly laughs a-plenty and is a headline performer throughout Britain and beyond.
‘The undisputed master of the one-liner genre’ – The Guardian
Perceptively described by bbc.co.uk as ‘the comedian Jimmy Carr wants to be’ and by Loaded magazine as ‘Britain’s answer to Steven Wright’, Gary is a majestic one-liner based wit whose inordinately tightly written, wonderfully original material makes him one of the most quoted gagsters on the entire planet. Featured on ‘Mock The Week’, Dave’s ‘One Night Stand’, ‘The Stand Up Show’, Comedy Central’s ‘Comedy Blue’ and Radio 5′s ’7 Day Sunday’, he received a slew of 4 and 5 star reviews for his debut Edinburgh festival show ‘Purist’. All this and he’s won 2 Sony Awards for his writing work for Kerrang Radio. Respected by peers and audiences alike his brilliant and often deliciously twisted lines win over any crowd and leave them struggling to remember all the ones they want to tell later. Plus he can disarm a heckler at twenty paces.
‘Stalking the stage in a charcoal suit and delivering finely honed, caustic gags with a panache many a comedy circuit regular would be eager to emulate. We’ve definitely not heard the last of him’ – Huddersfield Examiner
Ribticklers Comedy Award Winner in his first ever gig and a former Crooked Smile Award runner-up, Nick is a new act with undeniable onstage poise and wonderfully dark material who is currently blazing a trail though the Northern comedy scene with his impeccable comedic timing.
‘Theresa delivers proper jokes with excellent comic timing. Definitely one to watch’ – Laughing Cows
Theresa Farlow is making her mark on the comedy circuit with her clever, finely honed gags, friendly, confident stage persona and natural audience interaction. She presents a unique and self-deprecating take on life, shaped by years of experience in academia, with a gastric band, laser eye surgery, life with an older man, rampant cats and personal struggles with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder.

‘Dark quips and relentlessly witty audience-goading ad-libbing from a compelling host’ – City Life
Clad in a sartorially edifying manner, like a dapper and dandy funeral director, Anthony cuts a unique on-stage presence with humour blacker than a raven that’s slammed it’s claw in a coffin lid. And not the merest hint of profanity. The overall effect is both perversely hypnotic and wholly original, leaving the audience zealously hanging on to every syllable like turncoat lemmings on a rockface. Jongleurs/Metro ‘Stand & Deliver’ Award winner and BBC New Comedy Award Runner-up he is a regular contributor to Radio 2′s ‘The Arthur Smith Lectures’.
