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.

Podcast ho Jamie Hutchinson‘s horrible dating past, humiliating anecdotes, and perpetual singledom may sound more suited to a counselling session but, in the hands of this naturally funny craftsman make for a painfully funny set. Manc, ginger and proud, brace yourself for a full frontal comedic assault when Jamie pulls the mic form the stand. One liners, puns, pulling faces, uncanny characterisations and clowning are all utilised as deadly weapons in Jamie’s one man war on the mundane.
“Simply phenomenal” Notts Comedy Review “Absolutely hilarious” Seann Walsh
MC Alex Boardman, who cut his comedic teeth on the burgeoning Manchester scene with sets at the Frog & Bucket often followed by an all nighter at The Hacienda! Family life may have 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!
“Very funny” Sarah Millican “Double funny” Shaun Ryder
