Winner BBC New Comedy Award 2001.
British Comedy Award winner Bill has enjoyed success on the live stage for many years. In 2001 he took his show Bewilderness to New York for an eight week run at the Westbeth Theatre. The New York Times wrote of him, "Bill is an unalloyed pleasure, a treat for the funny bone, the brain and the ear" and The Telegraph pronounced him "a hobbit with a wicked sense of humour". In 2004 he performed his show Part Troll at over fifty venues around the UK, culminating in an extended run at London's Wyndhams Theatre. In 2007 he embarked on a sold-out UK arena tour with his audio-visual, comedic extravaganza, Tinselworm. He took the show down under during the summer of 2008, touring Australia and New Zealand, before returning to London in December 2008 for a ten week run of the show at The Gielgud Theatre. The summer of 2009 saw Bill tour the UK once again with his live show, Bill Bailey Live. Last autumn, following his performances at London's Royal Albert Hall and the resulting critically acclaimed BBC2 television broadcast, Bill enjoyed a very successful UK tour of his musical comedy extravaganza, Bill Bailey's Remarkable Guide to the Orchestra. Performing alongside some of the UK's finest orchestras, the show provided fans with the opportunity to see Bill's surreal comic and musical imagination at its best and was described by The Telegraph as "a glorious achievement," The Guardian as "sublime hilarity" and Stephen Fry as "wonderfully enjoyable... like driving a Rolls-Royce off-road."
The double British Comedy Award Winner, RTS Winner and BAFTA nominee is back.
A unique opportunity to see the man himself up close and personal before he embarks on a massive UK tour. Punchlines is Dave's latest comedy project in his long career. Punchlines generally derive their humour from being unexpected - "Punch" indicating that the "Line" should always come as a surprise or shock. The major school of thought suggests that very few Punchlines are inherently funny out of context. There is another school of thought (actually Dave's school of thought) that the opposite can be true. In this new show he will present evidence to support this. He quotes : - "Where do you want your blinds?"/ "It's not my dog" /That's my Thermos flask !". Then of course there are nuns. Nuns in baths, Nuns on bikes and Prince Charles wearing a fox hat. Dave will argue that you don't always need a Punchline for a joke to be hilarious and suggests that if you doubt him, you should ask the bloke with the big orange head.
Milton Jones is renowned for his string of surreal and unusual one-liners. On stage, hair gelled in 360 different directions, clothes half-spaceman, half '70s Bhs, he was Perrier Finalist of 1997 and Best Newcomer in 1996. His delivery is part weirdo, part childish, part punch drunk.
In just over a decade since he began performing, Reginald D Hunter has become one of the UK Comedy industry's best-known and most distinctive performers. His work is often brutally honest, frequently controversial but always meticulously measured and thought out. He is one of the few performers to have been nominated for the highly coveted main Perrier Award in three consecutive years and has become a well-known face on primetime television shows such as Live At The Apollo and QI and is a frequent guest on Have I Got News For You.
Roy 'Chubby' Brown is a comic genius and one of the funniest comedians in the world. His outrageous performances are considered unsuitable for mainstream television but his videos and DVDs sell in their millions. He has taken his brand of humour around the world with huge success in Australia, the USA, the Middle East and Hong Kong. For adults only.
An internationally acclaimed stand-up comedian, accomplished actor and writer with guest spots on Mock the Week, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow and 8 Out of 10 Cats, Stewart Francis is one multi-talented performer. Stewart has made numerous television appearances. He's a regular guest on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, he is the host of trivia game show You Bet Your Ass, and in Britain, his TV appearances include The Comedy Store, Live At Jongleurs and The Big Stage.
Stewart has devoted this show to his father. So dad - if you're up there? As for having kids himself he's decided he doesn't want any... anyone who wants some let him know and he'll drop them off. Oh he's just kidding of course, he has a beautiful daughter who he named after his mum, and in fact passive aggressive psycho turns five tomorrow. On an unrelated matter, Stewart likes what mechanics wear... overall.
