Mike Wilmot is one of those uncompromising, hard hitting comics who’s still incredibly loveable and hilarious in equal measure.
His talent hasn’t gone unnoticed in TV land and you may have seen him in one of several appearances on BBC2’s Never Mind the Buzzcocks. He’s also dazzled on BBC1’s Live At The Apollo, Channel 4’s Stand up for the Week and 8 out of 10 Cats, Lee Mack’s Not Going Out, Dave’s One Night Stand, and BBC4’s Rich Hall’s Fishing Show/Cattle Drive. If he’s not wowing crowds all over the UK, he’s hotly in demand around the world at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, as well comedy festivals in Ireland, Scandinavia, Paris, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Bangkok and South Africa. No surprise then that he’s a multi award winning act gaining accolades on three different continents.

Sol Bernstein after 25 years of semi-retirement, playing nursing homes is back where he belongs in smoky clubs performing to drunks. He’s the man who helped the career’s of Elvis Presley, Marcel Marceau (never even got a “thank you”) and even the Beatles were influenced. He’s performed all over the world at venues including The London Palladium, New York’s Carnegie Hall, The Paris Olympia, Caesars Palace Las Vegas, and Scunthorpe Baths, but it’s at night clubs where Sol really comes to life. His charisma, his style, his catch phrase “why don’t you put on a tie” his chutzpah, put it all together and you get the magic that is Sol Bernstein.
