"An engaging feel good songsmith...charming cheer" The Sunday Times
"Guaranteed to lift your spirits" ***** Daily Mirror
Jonny Awsum exploded onto the professional comedy scene with a crowd-pleasing set that's seen him perform his special brand of musical comedy around the world. He's a comedic whirlwind, and has risen quickly from a fresh-faced newbie to a highly sought after headline act.
Audience members don't just leave entertained, they leave as fans!
Jonny has been traversing the UK, and indeed the World, armed with an impressive arsenal of jokes and his trusty guitar. He's a must see at comedy clubs, as his crowd-pleasing performance sees Jonny regularly ending his sets to standing ovations and demands of an encore.
Equally at home in front of a camera, Jonny reached the semi-finalist stage for Britain’s Got Talent in 2017 and has also recently appeared on the nation's TV screens, presenting for Sky Sports, and is a familiar face from the current Experian adverts, and features in the Cravendale 'Cats with Thumbs' campaign, which has been viewed over a million times on YouTube.
Opening the show is the incredible Julian Deane who has been wowing audiences across the country with his genius punch lines and perfect delivery. His witty writing skills have been put to use on Matt Forde’s Unspun (Dave Channel), which he wrote for in 2016. This year, Julian will support Paul Chowdhury on the highly-anticipated tour Live Innit.
Having first performed stand up in 2005, Julian’s brilliant, utterly original and hilarious routines have earned him appreciation, recognition and praise from audiences across the country.
Julian has proved his talent by winning some of the most prestigious stand-up comedy competitions in the country and is also in big demand as a writer (Mock the Week).
Deliciously twisted, a stream of seriously good gags. Quick, sharply written and endlessly repeatable lines. The Guardian
It’s just a matter of time before Julian Deane gets a boost up the comedy rankings. His trick is to make you think you’re watching standard stand-up fare, then twisting expectations with sharp, original punchlines. The Independent
Plus support from: Fred Ferenczi who began stand-up in 2001 and has clocked up some 700 gigs in that time, performing all over the UK.
‘He’s a dopey old duffer who you could imagine as one of the villagers in the Vicar of Dibley, though even more strange. He promises a rollercoaster of gaiety and glee.’ Steve Bennett (Chortle)
