Described as “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…
“Comedy masterclass” The Stage
Best known for his regular appearances at both London and Manchester Comedy Store’s, Roger Monkhouse is something of a legend on the circuit. A complete mastery of the English language dressed in oodles of gentlemanly charm will win over the coldest of crowds making Roger one the very best comperes working today. It’s not all off the cuff stuff though; there are decades of class routines, observations and bankable gags in reserve too. One of the very best.
Compere for the evening is Tom Wrigglesworth. Tom is best known for his live storytelling shows and Sony Award winning BBC Radio comedy programmes which take a comical and emotional look at family relationships. Alongside his comedy work, he’s used his engineering background to become a natural and engaging presenter for BBC Television and The Discovery Channel.
