SULLY O’ SULLIVAN
“Sully’s booming self confidence and no-nonsense delivery refreshes the whole genre.” – Huddersfield Examiner
“I gasp with laughter and a small amount of beer tries to escape through my nose. Excellent” – Manchester Evening News
Improviser and multi award winning exponent of interactive standup New Zealand native Sully O’Sullivan has performed professionally all over the world, from Ohio to Oman. However far that is. A four season veteran of New Zealand’s award winning TV standup showcase ‘Pulp Comedy’, he’s been nominated for the Kiwi Comedy Industry’s supreme award by the NZ Comedy Trust, and by his fellow performers for the title of NZ’s Best MC. He’s been declared a highlight of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival by The NZ Herald, a highlight of the Glasgow International Comedy Festival by The Scotsman, won Canada’s Masters of the Universe Improv Competition, and featured on Australian TV’s The Comedy Channel.
‘His distinctive style stands out – a winning mixture of pomposity, insecurity and emotional incompetence, while the fury-inducing importance he places on the trivial makes for a winning comic stance’ – Chortle
As seen on Comedy Central’s ‘The World Stands Up’ and ITV4′s ‘FHM Stand-Up Hero’, Andrew looks and acts like he’s in middle management, a socially inept posh boy whose distaste for everything even remotely laddish and fondness for over-extended cricket analogies cloaks some deliciously dark writing with more interesting and provocative thoughts crammed into 20 minutes than many esteemed comics manage in a decade. Who else is capable of spinning a rant about the escalating number of kisses at the bottom of an e-mail into a blueprint for fascism?

RESIDENT COMPERE – ELLIOT J HUNTLEY
“The relaxed and unhurried stage persona of a born story-teller who can keep an audience hanging on his words even when he isn’t telling any jokes – a rare talent” – bbc.co.uk
Guiding you through each show will be the impeccable Mr Huntley, a published author, radio presenter, close-up magician, comedy scriptwriter, film producer and fabulously funny stand-up. And he’s a Gainsborough boy to boot. Oozing hilariously superficial charm like Hugh Grant’s sleazy black sheep of a brother with one last chip at the roulette wheel, E.J’s delicious ad-libs will have you guffawing at will.
