Sharp material and quick wits have seen Catch 22 favourite Danny McLoughlin firmly establish himself as one of the country’s premier comics and most sought after MCs.
“Danny McLoughlin is a class act. His innate comic timing, insightful digressions and ability to think on his feet puts him alongside the most talented and genuinely funny comedians.” – ThreeWeeks
Phil Chapman began performing comedy in 2006 at a local Chinese restaurant, he was asked to leave soon into the performance, but such was the reaction of the crowd – a rapturous round of applause (in hindsight, this may have been more for the management although no one can really confirm anything) – he decided to pursue a career via more conventional means.
Phil’s playful brand of comedy is unique and infectious. With a set that blends anecdotes and observations with a healthy dose of banter, his happy-go-lucky approach and mischievous on-stage persona, delights audiences far and wide.
With musical skills that would easily fit into many rock bands headliner 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 three days later, confused and wondering where it’s come from.
“Leaping between stupidity and pure brilliance!” Yorkshire Evening Post
“Unlike some musical comics who rely on a guitar to get them through, Oakley’s routine deftly mixes the tunes with the stand-up” City Life
