‘Cutts is a natural and charismatic storyteller full of gusto and hilarious anecdotes’- Square Hole Comedy
‘Hilarity Bites’ finalist with insightful banter and bonhomie from a Rotherham lad made good.
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’.
