Steve Royle
Steve is a regular headline act at The Comedy Store and other top comedy clubs. He has performed alongside Steve Coogan and Peter Kay many times, and has toured with Dave Spikey on his Overnight Success tour.

Steve is also co-founder of the Slaughterhouse Live character comedy nights. The group have taken the Edinburgh Festival Fringe by storm with sell out shows and rave reviews for two years running.

Mick Sergeant
It’s not immediately apparent that Geordie Mick Sergeant is a character act, and that’s to the credit of his creator Lee Fenwick, also known for being half of spoof German techno band Die Clattershenkenfietermaus. Here he has established a believable, layered personality, rich with subtle touches and – more crucially – great gags.

Peter Brush
The deadpan Peter Brush delivers a collection of quirky one-liners which are unexpected and silly.

“The real standout performer for me was Peter Brush, whose slow build up to quirky one-liners had tears streaming down my cheeks.”  – Bridlington Free Press

Compere….Tony Vino
Tony Vino has been touring the comedy scene since early 2005. He has enjoyed recognition as a comedian and notably as a comedy compere. Tony is best known for the way he seamlessly mixes well thought out observational humour with audience interaction and quick witted responses. His life and interests are wide ranging, and so is his material, all performed in a warm, friendly and non-offensive style.

Not recommended for under 18’s
