‘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

Compere – Anthony J. Brown
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’.
