Tony Vino as MC
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
“Tony Vino makes me laugh on and off stage. He’s always funny and has some of the same letters as my name”. Tim Vine
Duncan Oakley has been a musician since the age of six, has performed on the UK comedy circuit since 1999, appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, on BBC Radio 4 and at many summer festivals as well as starring in Beat24's feature film 'Frontman' and short film 'Read Between the Signs' With musical skills that would easily fit into many rock bands Duncan Oakley performs an infectious mix of musical comedy and stand up with one of his trusty guitars - Maurice (Fender Strat), No.7 (acoustic) or his Les Paul (the Lezza) by his side. With an eye and ear for the silly, rude, playful and downright irritating occurrences of life Duncan musters up songs that not only make you laugh, they bury into the recesses of your mind and find you a humming tune with a smile on your face 3 days later, confused and wondering where it’s come from.
Welcome to the world of Duncan Oakley.
"Leaping between stupidity and pure brilliance" Yorkshire Evening Post
