He’s Jamaica’s greatest comedy export where he’s a household name, like Billy Connolly, due to the success of his TV shows ‘Paleface Point Of View’ and ‘Laugh Jamaica’. This is a multi-award-winning comedian who’s also a big hit in this country too with appearances on BBC1′s The Crouches, BBC3′s Brain Candy and SKY’s Caribbean Uncovered. Internationally he’s in huge demand and can regularly be found knocking them dead across the USA, Canada, Europe and the Caribbean. “Has the charisma to be genuinely fascinating and deliver the laughs” Chortle Simon Bligh has over 20 years experience and knows how to master a crowd bringing the big laughs to the room. A Perrier Award nominee and Time Out Comedy Award winner, he’s one of the most sought after comedians in the country with his fast-paced and manic storytelling style. He performs across the globe and has been a TV regular appearing on The Stand Up Show (BBC 2), “Friday Night Live” (ITV1), The Comedy Store and Live at Jongleurs (both Channel 5) and has even been on German and Dutch TV! “A reliable pleasure” The Guardian John Gavin started off his comedy career after his wife entered him for a stand up competition without his knowledge; a month later he found himself in the final of So You Think You’re Funny alongside acts like Seann Walsh and Josh Widdicombe. A year on from this John went on to win Scottish Comedian of the Year with tales of his wife and 3 young daughters. Since then he’s gone from strength playing all the top comedy clubs around the UK. He describes himself as ‘essentially a 6ft tattooed man who has been subjected to far too much High School Musical and pink fluffy toys’. “Brilliant” Sunday Mail Your MC for all the above is Southport born Damion Larkin, one of Britain’s most promising comedy talents, renowned for being a spontaneous and lovable host. “One of the country’s top new comedians” BBC All line ups are subject to change, but don’t worry, we’ll only replace them with someone just as funny!
