Described as a “a brilliant comedian” by none other than Peter Kay, Steve Royle has had a career that has spanned everything from the Royal Variety Performance, to Phoenix Nights to coming third on Britain’s Got Talent. A first rate comedy act with unashamed vaudevillian echoes. A highly skilled juggler, Steve holds the official world records for balancing a Christmas tree on his chin and an ironing board on his foot. Much as we love Steve, we do sometimes worry about him.

Despite starting stand-up at the tender age of eighteen, Matt Richardson was soon a finalist in various competitions, won several new act awards and this led to regular appearances at the bigger comedy clubs. It was Matt’s first full length show that kick started career moving when ‘Hometown Hero’ was named ‘Best New Show’ at the Leicester Comedy Festival.
The TV execs were quick to notice Matt’s talents and he replaced Olly Murs as host on ITV2’s ‘The Xtra Factor’ (alongside Caroline Flack) which led to a nationwide tour of ‘Hometown Hero’ which covered 54 dates.
TV includes Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Celebrity Juice, Sweat The Small Stuff, Celebrity Squares, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! Now! and Big Brother’s Bit on the Side as well as numerous radio appearances.
“Hilarious and charming” Mirror “Sharp, funny and warm” Heat Magazine
MC Rob Rouse‘s career has seen him encompass pretty much everything from presenting Channel 4’s The Friday Night Project, to appearing the West End to teaching geography. We would like to point out that this isn’t in chronological order.
Rob’s a one man comedy whirlwind who drags the audience into his craftily spun tall tales with bucketfuls of manic energy, first class stage craft, eerily convincing characterisations and a barrage of hilarious one liners. East Cheshire’s very own Howard Anstock rounds off another great night
