He’s a sharp, MC, and a powerhouse featured act appearing at theatres, comedy clubs, many many pub function rooms, festival stages, and even a moving bus!

Enjoy hours of laughter with these incredible acts :

Andy Gleeks (MC)

Having been on the circuit for four years now, Andy Gleeks has established himself as an act who delivers, firstly and foremost, as a ‘natural MC’ (Geoff Whiting), who ‘effortlessly engages the audience…with ‘warmth and charm’ (House of Stand-up). He can be trusted to steer a night into, and through, funny waters each and every time, due to his ‘cracking ad libs’ (Notts Comedy Review).

When not mcing, Andy has a bulletproof club set, high on gags, focusing on his past and present lives in Ireland and England. His conversational and anecdotal style is rip roaringly self deprecating, and Andy enjoys ‘flitting seamlessly between topical and observational comedy’ (Lassman Productions) and has a real facility for language, but, above all, self laceration. Andy works on a variety of bills and is an act who all audiences warm to due to his relaxed style, confident delivery, his searing honesty, his quick wit, his ‘great turn of phrase’ his ‘good comedy mind’ (Glee Club), but most of all his idiocy (Andy Gleeks). He is definitely an act considered ‘one to watch’ (House of Stand-up).

But most of all, he is an act who is, undoubtedly, a fan of commas.

“it’s clear you’ve been doing this a very long time” Tony Hadley, Spandau Ballet

Obie (Headliner)

Obie has been on the circuit for 20 years in Scotland. He headlines gigs all over the country and has performed shows all over the world including Australia, Germany and Ireland. Obie is highly regarded as one of the most naturally talented comedians on the circuit today. His shows are filled with surreal journeys, observations and a bit of philosophy of life. As well as having brilliant material Obie can easily change gears and go off on a riff and react rapidly to what’s going on in the room.

Obie headlines gigs for a number of clubs around the country and abroad. A list of these clubs include:- Yesbar Comedy Club, Cross my laugh comedy, The Monkey Barrel, Lady Shona Comedy, Enterteasement and many more.

Obie has also headlined gigs around Europe including Nutty Annitas in Amsterdam and Cosmic comedy in Berlin.

As well as being a regular headliner around these clubs Obie is a very competent compere and easily sets up a room well for other comics. Obie has also been touring solo shows for 12 years and has built up a regular audience at the Edinburgh Festival. He has also regularly performs solo shows around the country and as far away as Australia.

Outside of performing comedy Obie also runs comedy workshops where he not only teaches people how to perform and write stand up, he also helps them with skills that help improve confidence in everyday life.

Harvey Hawkins (Opener)

Harvey started performing comedy in 2015 and soon had a rapid rise up the comedy ladder. By the end of 2016 he had won the Birmingham Breaking Talent Award (chosen by Steve Bennett of Chortle and Jasper Carrott) and had been nominated for the BBC New Comedy Award, leading to performing live on BBC R4. Now as a more experienced act, Harvey performs comedy at some of the biggest clubs all over the country including The Comedy Store in London, Glee Clubs and many others.

“Razor sharp punchlines delivered with great skill. Highly recommended” – Paul Sinha (Taskmaster, The Chase, Celebrity Gogglebox)
“ Harvey Hawkins is one of my go to acts. I’ve booked him for numerous shows and he always delivers. Excellent jokes and a strong stage persona combine to make him an audience favourite” – Castle Comedy
“Slick and wry observational comedy” – Steve Bennett, Chortle
“Harvey is very talented. Promoters get him on your bills whilst you still can” – Scott Bennett (Live At the Apollo)

Mel Byron (Middle)

Mel has combined being a comedian and performer with working in marketing and sales. She has performed in comedy clubs and spoken word nights across London and the South, including a period MCing and running her own night, Comedy Cornucopia, in Bloomsbury. She has also MC’d for the prestigious spoken word organisation, Apples & Snakes.

Much of Mel’s working life has been spent presenting to meetings and conferences, injecting humour into product launches and sales breakdowns.

Mel’s comedy style is warm and inclusive and I love audience interaction. Being a more mature comedian gives her a particular outlook on life, and her style works well with a mature audience, as well as the younger demographic you might expect at comedy shows.

Karoshi, Mel’s first Edinburgh Fringe show, is a labour of love, combining her comedy skills with a fun, informative, accessible presentation. After Edinburgh, Mel plans to take the show to venues and festivals across the country.

Enjoy hours of laughter with these incredible acts :

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

“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
