STAR OF JOHN BISHOP’S ‘ONLY JOKING’ AT LOL COMEDY CLUB AT THE ATKINSON
Dan Nightingale from John Bishop’s Only Joking (Sky TV) and Ross Noble’s tour support and regular TV warm up for the likes of Jonathan Ross, John Bishop and Celebrity Juice.
The phrase ‘comedy natural’ may well be overused but this dynamic tornado of playful humour is the epitome of born talent. He’s exciting, spontaneous, creative, a true original and most of all he’s funny, funny, funny.
He’s widely regarded as one of the best performers working on the comedy circuit today. Mixing fiendishly accurate observation with energetic characterisations and killer punch lines, his comedy is original, playful, intelligent, poignant and exciting; sometimes ridiculous… but always hilarious.
Dan began his comedy career in Newcastle in 2002 and then moved onto Manchester, where he spent ten years and became one of the most recognisable faces on the North West Comedy circuit. He founded the Frog and Buckets ‘Beat the Frog’ amateur night, which quickly became the best new comedy night in the North. As well as developing his reputation as a top-class circuit headliner and in-demand MC and host, he has also performed regular TV warm up for the likes of Jonathan Ross, John Bishop and Celebrity Juice.
He’s probably the only act in the country who’s been offered a deal by pretty much every top management agency in the UK and turned them all down. Unfazed by offers of fame and fortune he’s one of the best and the most admired comics on the international circuit. So come and see one of comedy’s best kept secrets!

Marcel Lucont is a sultry, free living, fragrant, French raconteur of UK Comedy laughs disdainfully in the face of everyone and everything and in turn everyone and everything laughs straight back at him. The deadpan and aloof posture and delivery of Lucont makes him instantly one of the most exciting and genuinely hilarious comics in this country (in his home land of course, he’s the best comedian ever, in history).
His self-proclaimed grandeur have gotten him an uproar of attention from audiences and television in equal measure, he has appeared on BBC 3’s ‘Russell Howards Good News’ as well as BBC 1’s ‘The John Bishop Show’. Marcel is also a multi – award winning act for example he has won the Amused Moose Award Best Comedy Show at the Edinburgh Fringe.
