‘Comedy guaranteed to lighten even the darkest of moods. Missing this show means missing something wonderful’ – Edinburgh Evening News
With more energy than a hyperactive six-year-old sucking on a lollipop while bouncing on a spacehopper, Rob has a veritable shed-load of TV credits including ’8 Out Of 10 Cats’, ‘Dave’s One Night Stand’, ‘Celebrity Juice’, ‘The Friday Night Project’, ‘Mad Mad World’, ‘Live At The Comedy Store’, ‘Edinburgh And Beyond’ and ‘Spoons’. He is a veteran of several critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival shows and two sold out national theatre tours, firmly establishing him as one of comedy’s most lively, loveable and dynamic performers. He will be touring the UK again later this year so this presents a fabulous opportunity to see some of what he’ll be getting up to.
‘Like a slow-burning explosive. His deliberate monotone delivery lulls you into a false sense of security, until you suddenly realise you’ve been hit in the face by a rapid-fire round of blistering one-liners’ – Worksop Guardian
Runner-up Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2010 and Manchester Comedy Festival award winner, Dan Bland brings a touch of darkness to the comedy circuit. His morbid disposition owes more to a grumpy undertaker than a genial stand-up comedian. But that funereal facade belies a devilish comic mind that has beguiled countless audiences. Delivering explosive one-liners with razor-sharp precision, deadpan Dan unfailingly ensures that he is the only person in the room to keep a straight face.
‘Tall stories from tall Si Finnigan, relaxed and very aimable with crisp punchlines that come out from nowhere to the delight of the crowd’ – Mr Bens
‘Inspired onstage tomfoolery well worthy of inspection’ – bbc.co.uk
Resident Compere – Anthony J Brown
‘Hilarious ad-libs and wicked one-liners from an infectiously funny performer’ – The List
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 former BBC New Comedy Award Runner-up he is a regular contributor to Radio 2′s “The Arthur Smith Lectures”.
