Preston’s very own funnyman. Tony Vino (**** The Scotsman) has been touring the comedy scene since early 2005. Well aware of social and political issues he mixes friendly well thought out observational humour with audience interaction and quick witted responses. A finalist in 2006 Funny Bones competition, Tony has enjoyed recognition as a comedian and comedy compere of renown. His life and interests are wide ranging and so is the subject matter he weaves together on stage.
“A Great Show the assured Tony Vino copes with a mixed audience really well” Kate Copstic, The Scotsman
“Uplifting style, great delivery and consistently funny throughout” BBC Manchester
“Tony is very funny, a class act and always comes up with the goods” Darren Goddard, Greenbelt Festival Events
“Life Affirming Comedy” BBC1 Heaven & Earth Show
“Such a class act” Sorted Magazine
As a rare right-winger, Geoff Norcott is a unique voice in British comedy. Having appeared on Live at the Apollo, Mash Report, Mock the Week and Question Time he’s built up a significant live following with sell-out Edinburgh runs and two national tours. Operating outside the usual comedic commentary on politics and social issues, Geoff has carved a real niche for himself. With a documentary, bespoke TV formats plus a UK and international tour on the horizon, 2019 is set to be an even bigger year.
"He's a class act with a mature, sharp take on modern politics " - Sunday Times
"A Right laugh" - Guardian
"Hilarious; Nobody makes me laugh like Paul Tonkinson. Simply one of the greatest comics around. Go see him!" Michael McIntyre
A sensational live performer, Yorkshire man, marathon runner and former (double award-winning) Time Out Comedian of the Year, Paul Tonkinson has long upheld his esteemed reputation as one of the finest stand-ups the UK has to offer. With a unique and distinctive style, Tonkinson is noted for his effervescent physicality and skilful impressions, which bring alive exuberant, tender comic reflections on love, family and the day-to-day idiosyncrasies of 21st century living. A plethora of first class material, combined with tremendous charm and irrepressible, infectious energy make for quite a formidable talent.
"Excellent...Extremely talented...Brilliant" Time Out
