Paul Grace (MC)

‘An assured presence on stage, he had the crowd rocking with laughter’ – Gary Delaney

“Paul is the gentle giant of stand up comedy, he’s very funny, a lovely safe pair of hands, great comic & Mc, and is over 7 foot tall which makes him great at getting stuff of the top shelf!” – Patrick Monahan

“Really relaxed style and beautifully delivered material” – Danny Posthill

‘A naturally engaging guy and easy to warm to’ – Geoff Whiting – Mirth control

“Paul is a funny man. Tall, good looking, with the eyes of a baby deer he is the thinking man’s Bob Monkhouse – but alive and darker. A great compere and comedian” – Ben Keaton

“Grace is a talented comedian and he went down excellently with the audience” – Notts comedy reviewer

“Paul has a commanding stage presence, which allows him to share his unique comic imagination with any crowd. He’s reliable and professional, and a “safe pair of hands” for the audience, whether compering or doing a set. I recommend him!” – Dave Thompson

Duncan Oakley (Headliner)

Comedian, Songwriter, Musician, Actor, One man band!

With musical skills that would easily fit into many rock bands Duncan Oakley performs an infectious mix of musical comedy and stand up with one of his trusty guitars – Maurice (Fender Strat), No.7 (acoustic) or his Les Paul (the Lezza) by his side.

He has been a musician since the age of six, has performed on the UK comedy circuit since 1999, appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, on BBC Radio 4 and at many summer festivals as well as starring in Beat24’s feature film Frontman and short film Read Between the Signs. Duncan was voted English Comedian of the Year in 2015 and Midlands Comedian of the Year 2016.

With an eye and ear for the silly, rude, playful and downright irritating occurrences of life Duncan musters up songs that not only make you laugh, they bury into the recesses of your mind and find you a humming tune with a smile on your face three days later, confused and wondering where it’s come from.

Duncan performs regularly at some of the UKs biggest clubs and festivals. A talented all-round musician Duncan can also perform with harmonica, drums & piano as a one man musical whirlwind.

Kent Cameron (Opener)

An up and coming comedian with a medically certified giant personality. Booking Kent is a safe pair of hands- literally you won’t find a bigger pair on the circuit.

“Kent Cameron takes to the stage and has the audience in his grasp within seconds. One to watch and pleasure to book” – Jordan Handford, Laffalot Promotions
“Kent Cameron is a relative newcomer to the comedy world but is really starting to stand out in a crowded market; a very engaging performer who really connects with an audience with his diverse subject matter including self deprecation and his Scottish roots; coupled with his ability to think on his feet and react to audience banter he looks set to really start moving up the comedy ladder in the next twelve months; comfortable with a diverse demographic he appeals to a wide range of people which is a real advantage as it allows him to play to an equally wide range of clubs.” – Nik Hill, Gloucester Brewery (in association with funhouse comedy)
“Kent Cameron fills the stage like a gentle giant. His writing and delivery are all on point with lots of very funny jokes from a unique perspective. Likeable, engaging and entertaining. A strong addition to any lineup. Highly recommended ” – Daniel Lythe, the Top Notch Comedy
“he hit the stage like Taz and presented 27 minutes of gold. You’d have thought it was packed if you listened in.” – Ian Peskett, Promotor

Gill Gee

Gill Gee is an up and coming comedian from the north west, she’s a retired therapist and embarrassing single Mum having a mid-life crisis..

Gill shares hilarious tales and one-liners that will leave you wondering “Did she really just say that?”

Ian Peskett

As the poster child for the formula “tragedy + time = comedy” Ian’s tales of misadventure will keep you on the edge of your seat.

“One of the most promising up and coming acts on the East Midlands Comedy circuit.” Spiky Mike – Funhouse Comedy
