Duncan Oakley With musical skills that would easily fit into many rock bands Duncan Oakley performs an infectious mix of musical comedy and stand up that has seen him become one of the leading headliners in the business.
He’s 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 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.
“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
“Pure brilliance” Yorkshire Evening Post
Mike Wilkinson is a long time pal and comedy colleague of Peter Kay and has also supported him on tour. He must be in demand as he’s also toured with Johnny Vegas and Ross Noble! Full to the brim with down to earth Northern charm, Mike takes a bemused glance at the world and then throws it a smile. The laughs come thick and fast with his dry humour and razor sharp wit.
“Excellent” City Life
