‘Had me exercising my pelvic floor muscles to avoid an accident’ – BBC Tees
As seen on ITV’s ‘Stand Up Britain’, Andy is a Brummie lad made good, escaping from a call centre to become an established stand up comic who combines perceptive observational humour, silly voices and a mad afro to devastating comic effect. He is a regular performer at Jongleurs and The Comedy Store and won a cool ten grand on a Weakest Link comedian’s special. He used it as the basis for his marvellous one-man solo show ‘It Started With A Quiz’ at the Edinburgh Festival. His globetrotting antics have also taken in shows in Monte Carlo, Berlin Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
‘Firing out laughs left, right and centre he managed to hit every person in the room…intelligently put together, completely original and the best geography lesson I‘ve experienced’ – Gigglebeats
Former professional wrestler Lee is blazing a trail through the British comedy circuit with his unique and thoroughly hilarious flag based surrealism. He was runner-up in both the Crooked Smile Comedy Award and the Laughing Penguins New Act competition and has been described by bbc.co.uk as ‘an act everyone should see at least once’.
A regular fixture at ‘Laughing Cows’ at Manchester’s legendary Frog & Bucket comedy venue and an established playwright with her work having being performed at numerous festivals from Edinburgh to Sydney. Ruth’s comedy is a perilously potent mix of spot-on, slightly surreal social commentary and brilliantly inventive, hummable and instantly hilarious songs.
