3 stand-up comedians to tickle your fancy...
‘Hilarious; nobody makes me laugh like Paul Tonkinson. Simply one of the greatest comics around. Go see him!’
A sensational live performer, Yorkshire man, marathon runner and former (double award-winning) Time Out Comedian of the Year, Paul Tonkinson has long upheld his esteemed reputation as one of the finest stand-ups the UK has to offer. With a unique and distinctive style, Tonkinson is noted for his effervescent physicality and skillful impressions, which bring alive exuberant, tender comic reflections on love, family and the day-to-day idiosyncrasies of 21st century living. A plethora of first class material, combined with tremendous charm and irrepressible, infectious energy make for quite a formidable talent.
Sean's looks, voice, and wild energy have drawn comparisons to a young Jim Belushi, but this rising comedian's style is all his own.
"I’ve seen him perform more than a dozen sets, and he’s killed every time. He’s dynamite, even with ordinary material, turning standard Brooklyn hipster jokes into a stomping, roaring tour de force, and elevating a bit about sex-performance anxiety into high-stakes comedy. He’s the rare comic who goes over as well in a comedy club as in a bar basement." New York Times
An observational storyteller who won the Piccadilly Comedy Club’s New Comedian of the Year 2014 and reached the finals of the Amused Moose Laugh Off, Leicester Square New Act and Laughing Horse New Act. Alistair combines high energy with a charismatic stage presence and is one of those rare commodities in the comedy world who has a consistent ability to produce new material of the highest standard. Packed with gags from start to finish; he is a genuine joke machine.
