Duncan Oakley
‘The future of Rock N’ Roll comedy’ – NME
‘Leaping between stupidity and sheer brilliance’ – Yorkshire Evening Post

As seen on Channel 4′s ‘Slam’ and ITV’s ‘Comedy Café’ and a regular guest on Radio 4′s ‘Shappi Talk’ as well as a sought after festival performer, Duncan is an internationally renowned act. He’s known for being very naughty and really quite rude, at least on stage; but this cheerfully childish behaviour belies his credentials as a seasoned professional show off. He’ll blow you away as he powers out a deft blend of stupidity and truly impressive musicianship (he’s rather nifty on a guitar), and you’ll quickly warm to his easy confidence and good natured banter.
Ably assisted by his loyal band of imaginary friends and anthropomorphised instruments – most notably the lovely Maurice the Fender Strat – he’ll take you on an exuberant and educational rock ‘n’ roll journey, exploring with relish the horrors and delights found in, on and around the human body and beyond, on a ceaseless quest
to find your inner child. He’ll locate it for you, guaranteed, and entertain it with a quick song.

Rachel Fairburn
A former Funny Women and City Life Comedian of the Year finalist as well as Hoot Best New Act, Rachel cuts a compelling onstage figure as a demure but ultimately doom-laden Mancunian with twisted imagery in droves. Fresh from her acclaimed Greater Manchester Comedy Festival Rachel Fairburn’s show ‘All The Fun Of The Fairburn’, she details the daily woes of a young woman who believes melancholia is in her genes. Misery loves comedy just as much as company and Fairburn mines a great deal of gold out of her strife.

Jared Shooter
‘A natural in the spotlight, warm, friendly, likeable, smiley and engaged with the audience throughout. He showed no sign of nerves and never once did the audience feel that he was out of his depth. Jared Shooter is definitely a shooting
star!’ – Derbyshire Times

Jared burst onto the comedy circuit in style in September 2012 by becoming runner up in Stagefright Comedys ‘Crooked Smile New Act Of The Year Awards’ in only his second gig at the age of 17!
Shooter’s presences on stage is key to his style, his energetic persona portrays life as a teenager discovering the adult world for the first time. In his material he describes his life experiences, relationships with family and friends and some observational humour mixed with clever one liners and witty anecdotes.
