Strolling onto stage like a missing Gallagher brother, Oxfordshire’s Matt Bragg first picked up a mic in 2015 and quickly found his distinctive style. Matt’s ultra laid back delivery makes everything look oh so easy and his timing utilises pauses that would make Pinter wince. There’s a definite hint of Frank Skinner in Matt’s overall rhythm too and what’s wrong with that? Style over substance can work in comedy but Matt has substance in buckets. Tightly crafted gags and routines whose punchlines steer well clear of the lazy or obvious are just another reason audiences love him.
Stand up comedy courses through Matt’s veins (he’s the son of renowned TV warm up man, Bobby) and regularly writes for fellow comics, television, radio and social media campaigns. Currently supporting Ricky Gervais on tour, Matt has also supported Harry Hill, Clinton Baptiste and Soccer AM’s Lloyd Griffith. Come and see him before he’s filling stadiums.
“Thoroughly enjoyable” Reginald D Hunter “Excellent gags!” Harry Hill
Alex Boardman cut his comedic teeth on the burgeoning Manchester scene with sets at the Frog & Bucket followed by an all nighter at The Hacienda! Family life has tempered the inner wild child but it’s certainly added to both the maturity and the relatability of his stand up. A gifted gag smith, Alex writes for a lot of big names and TV shows including John Bishop, A Question Of Sport and many we’re not allowed to say!
“A great comic” Sarah Millican “Double funny” Shaun Ryder
Currently on a UK tour with his new show ‘Stuff And Nonsense‘, Alun Cochrane is one of Britain’s funniest and most original comics, Alun appeared on everything from Have I Got News For You to 8 Out Of 10 Cats and you can hear him every Saturday on Frank Skinner’s Radio show.
“Big belly laughs” The Guardian “Master storyteller” Metro
