PHIL CHAPMAN

Phil began performing comedy at a local Chinese restaurant, he was asked to leave soon into the performance, but such was the reaction of the crowd - a rapturous round of applause (in hindsight, this may have been more for the management although no one can really confirm anything) - he decided to pursue a career via more conventional means.

 

Given his consistency, and undeterred by his near brushes with success, he decided to carry on performing and has now established himself as a regular in many clubs around the country, and he is renowned for his ability to win over any audience.

 

From his carefully crafted gags, to his engaging anecdotes, his material and stage presence ensure he is a big hit wherever he's playing.

“A good stage presence, with the jokes to match" Gigglebeats

"Fearless as well as bloody funny" Smacked Arse Comedy

DAVE HADINGHAM

Dave Hadingham (no middle name and only one 'd' in the surname) started in comedy in May 93 after writing some material for a friend, only to discover that said friend had given up comedy after a spot at 'Up The Creek' on a Sunday night. The said friend (who from now on in shall be known simply as friend). suggested that David perform his own "....damn material.."

 

Absolutely amazed that this could be done without attending "Special Comedy School" David set out to do what had now become a pathetic life-long ambition. After a few short months he soon gained the reputation for being a complete pain in the arse by everybody in the comedy world. this is not unusual, however, so he managed to cling on to his open spots and eighteen months later he was in such demand that he had to write this publicity.

 

Common accusations have included ; "You're not on stage now!" and "Is that my pint you're drinking?". Ever sharp and witty, some of his off stage remarks will be forever funny, and I quote, "If great humour comes from tragedy then why am I not the funniest man alive?" and "Is that my hat?".

 

Television appearances include David as a member of the audience in that hilarious programme Beadle About and as an onion in "Floyd On Fish" (David tells us that Floyd wasn't actually 'on Fish', he was actually 'on Valium.')

 

David has reached great heights in the comedy listings for example he used to be known as 'new', then 'newish' and now is called 'comedian'.

 

David's ambition is to see his name in print and spelt correctly (see first line) and to be described in the comedy listings as an 'amusing comedian' or even 'highly enjoyable'. although THE GUARDIAN didn't spell his name correctly they did call him a "ranting, raving comic genius" so we can't really argue with that.
