The Original Comedy Keller
Double Headliner Special
'The gods of comedy chose greatness for Tom' claims The Scotsman. They're right. Yorkshire-born Tom became a national have-a-go hero when he rescued a little old lady from the jaws of Virgin train bureaucracy, only to be arrested for ‘begging’. His subsequent sell-out show ‘Open Return Letter to Richard Branson’ bagged him a Chortle Award for Best Show in 2010 and a nomination for the main Edinburgh Festival award. He won a Sony Award for his Radio 4 series 'Open Letters' and two series of his show ‘Hang Ups’ were critically acclaimed. As seen on Russell Howard’s Good News, Edinburgh Comedy Show, Live At The Comedy Store, Engineering Giants and Electric Dreams, his articulate, evocative storytelling is a joy to behold. Five star reviews from Time Out, The Scotsman, Edinburgh Guide, Edinburgh Evening News. Four star reviews from Daily Mail, The Guardian, Sunday Times, Metro, Evening Standard, The Times, Daily Telegraph.
'Inspired storytelling and wickedly witty asides mixed with fantastic vocal mimicry' - bbc.co.uk
Fresh from 16 sold-out nights at Manchester Arena with the Phoenix Nights Comic Relief shows, Archie, aka 'Kenny Senior' is ‘stand-up of the very highest order' (City Life). He has further TV credits including 'Max & Paddy's Road To Nowhere', 'Coronation Street', 'Shameless', 'Emmerdale', 'Car Share' and 'The Street'. He is an effortless master of bone dry anecdotes laced with a pinch of well-aimed vitriol and served with a garnish of razor-sharp song parodies. Tawdry cookery analogies aside Mr Kelly is a dynamite comedic entity who will ensure belly laughs a-plenty and is a headline performer throughout Britain and beyond.
'An old soul with a very youthful mind, Cantrill blends his surreal thoughts with a likeability that’s synonymous with Northern comedians' - The Skinny
‘Without a doubt, one of the best deadpan comedians since Jack Dee, dark yet hilarious and her delivery and comedic timing was spot on’ - northwest.co.uk
Compere - Anthony J Brown
'Hilarious ad-libs and wicked one-liners from an infectiously funny performer' - The List
Clad in a sartorially edifying manner, like a dapper and dandy funeral director, Anthony cuts a unique on-stage presence with humour blacker than a raven that's slammed it's claw in a coffin lid. And not the merest hint of profanity. The overall effect is both perversely hypnotic and wholly original, leaving the audience zealously hanging on to every syllable like turncoat lemmings on a rockface. Jongleurs/Metro "Stand & Deliver" Award winner and former BBC New Comedy Award Runner-up he is a regular contributor to Radio 2's "The Arthur Smith Lectures".
