Patrick Monahan

Patrick Monahan

A brand new stand up show from Patrick Monahan who engages on tales from his youth up to this year which started with an appearance on ITV's Splash TV show.

Donning a pair of speedos, and no knowledge of diving, he jumped off the 10m board with 1.5 summersaults into homes across Britain on a Saturday night.

Also seen on ITV's Fake Reaction, BBC's Lets Dance for Sports Relief and winner of ITV's Show Me The Funny.

“Hilarious without being outrageous” - Three Weeks

“There isn’t a comic quite like him, his hugs alone are worth the price of admission” - New Current

“Supremely engaging, adored by audiences” - The Scotsman


Duncan Oakley

Duncan Oakley

As heard on BBC Radio 4's "Shappi Talk", Duncan Oakley is an artschool dropout and songwriter who has performed live since he was fifteen and then joined the comedy circuit in 1999. Duncan 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.

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 3 days later, confused and wondering where it’s come from.

A talented all-round musician Duncan can also perform with harmonica, drums & piano as a one man musical whirlwind, and is a regular at the biggest comedy clubs around the UK and also all of the biggest music festivals.

“Oakley's routine deftly mixes the tunes with the stand-up” - City Life

“There's laughter and there’s laughter and if you want to experience real mccoy, genuine, honestly felt, uncontrollable cachinnation the best place is at a Duncan Oakley gig” - Plymouth Herald

“...the encore had me in tears of laughter” - BBC

“...an excellent entertainer and musical/comedy genius well worth seeing!” - The National Student


Tony Jameson

MC Tony Jameson

Since starting in September, 2008, Tony Jameson has established himself firmly as one of the brightest prospects in the North East comedy scene.

With his whimsical rambling manner, or flight of fancy, Tony takes audiences on a tour of the inner workings of his mind and the strange things that happen in his life. Fleeting from whimsy to dark one-liners, before stopping for a cup of tea and a breather. It’s a bit like a small child who always asks ‘why?’ His observations are well thought out, keeping the audience on their toes and intrigued, eager to see where his journey will take them.

Tony has recently returned from a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival with his critically acclaimed show Football Manager Ruined My Life.

“Tony Jameson delivered both an imaginatively amusing and well received performance...” - Three Weeks

“Terrific... Wonderful... Life-affirming stuff...” - The Skinny

“The latest Geordie with massive potential” - Yorkshire Evening Press
