Tom Deacon has been performing live stand-up for the last seventeen years – with four Edinburgh solo shows under his belt – and has been the host of his own TV, radio and online shows on BBC2, BBC Radio1, The Capital FM breakfast show, plus host of Gfinity Esports shows and YouTube football channel Copa90 – where his Eurofan escapades have notched up over 8 million views. Tom has made guest appearances on The Rob Brydon Show and Dave’s One Night Stand One man comedic whirlwind Jack Gleadow first came to national attention when he won the 2018 Mercury Comedian of the Year, following in the hallowed footsteps of Manford, Vegas and Ranganathan. With energy that would shame an amphetamine addled Redcoat, Jack utilises every trick in the book; gags, cheesy pop, props, stories, advertising jingles and even a scooter to decisively win over the stoniest of’ hearts. “A natural born performer” ★★★★ I Talk Telly “Has you laughing at every angle” ★★★★ Fresh Fringe “A very bright future in entertainment ahead of him” ★★★★ One4Review Justin Moorhouse shouldn’t need any introduction to Congleton’s comedy fans. Whether you’ve seen him here, on tour, at The Comedy Store, London, on QI, Coronation Street, Celebrity Mastermind, Live At The Apollo, Dave’s One Night Stand or even Phoenix Nights (ask your mum), you’ll know why he is constantly in demand as one of the UK’s funniest performers. Peerless performance skills backed by an arsenal of carefully crafted routines and tightly written gags make Justin a surefire success in front of any audience as thousands of fans will gladly testify. “If good old-fashioned joke-telling is your thing, then Justin Moorhouse is your man” Fest Okay, let’s get this straight before we go any further, David Eagle is a folk musician. Not just a folk musician but one good enough to make a living out of it. A bloody good folk musician. An accomplished folk musician. The crazy, crazy bad ass world of folk has it’s downside though and when the cocaine and groupies got too much David bailed out and parachuted safely into stand up comedy. And, guess what? He’s a bloody good comic too. David has some class gags, routines and songs (well, if you already own an accordian you might as well do something with it.) and hardly even mentions folk music. Deliciously dark, quite twisted and devastatingly funny. Catch him soon. “A comic tour de force” The Guardian “A genuine stand up rookie phenomenon!” Reginald D Hunter The comedians you see at Comedy @ The Lion & Swan, Congleton are booked by Comedy In A Van.
