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.

 

"An instant hit" Liverpool Echo

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

"Fearless as well as bloody funny" Smacked Arse Comedy

 

DAVID DUNN

Sheffield Star entertainment journalist David Dunn is trying his hand at comedy. If it’s anything like his taste in music then we should be just fine.

 

"Probably the finest new act I have seen" David Dunn Sheffield Star

 

CHRISTIAN REILLY

At the age of 15, Christian Reilly joined a band to get laid. The Salvation Army had different ideas…

 

As former integral part of the Perrier award-winning show Otis Lee Crenshaw and the Black Liars, with comic/songster Rich Hall, Christian's career has taken him around the world three times. On his way, he received accolades at international festivals and numerous network TV credits in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Britain.

 

Now a solo stand-up performer and playing all the major comedy venues in his own right, Christian uses his dynamic guitar and vocal skills to target histrionic rock bands, musical theatre and morose indie musicians. He recently wrote and performed for 'That Was Then This Is Now' (BBC Radio 2) as musical counterpart to Richard Herring and Emma Kennedy, as well as giving his improvisation skills an outing on Radio 2's 'Jammin'.

 

Christian's comic songs, improvisations, sharp wit and youthful energy have delighted audiences wherever he performs.

 

"His stand-up is witty and heaving with punchlines…will win over all but the hardest hearts and minds." Chortle

"This genuine, trendy, confident comedian has a natural talent for risky jokes, song and quips which you can't help laughing at! If you get the chance to see Reilly live, do so. He is not to be missed!" Funny.co.uk

 

ROB ROUSE

"Clearly immensely talented... demands to be seen... star of the future" - The Sunday Times

 

According to the Independent, Rob's 'cartoon face and cheeky banter allow him to get away with murder'. He is definitely one of comedy's most lively, loveable and dynamic performers.

 

'With more energy than a hyperactive six-year-old sucking on a lollipop while bouncing on a spacehopper, Rob Rouse is one of the UK’s hottest – and liveliest – comedians.' - Crackerjack

 

His TV credits include presenting the first series of The Friday Night Project on Channel 4, the C4 sketch show Spoons, and playing Mike in the first series of he BBC3 sitcom Grown Ups. He’s also a regular on Celebrity Juice ITV2 and has just finished filming a brand new primetime panel show.
