‘Awicked sense of humour’ BBC
Raymond and Mr Timpkins Revue
Lightning fast choreography meets uber swift editing in a fantasmagorical collision of quality entertainment. An overload of velvet, sandals and multi-hued wool provides a startling accompaniment, the whole effect being that of a slim man and a fat man putting their bums in your face.
If you like music and let’s face it, who doesn’t, you’ll like it. If you like silliness, middle aged men dancing and unsavoury acts, you’ll probably love it.
You should try it either way. See you there.
“A mad, anarchic triumph of stupidity over style. Not to be missed” THE GUARDIAN
“Spectacularly funny” TIME OUT

Jo Jo Smith
Since her first tentative steps in 1993, JoJo has gone from open spot to late night TV personality, from global fame on the Internet to international comedy performer, not bad going for someone who until then had never stood on a stage in her life. Over the years, her act has moved away from ‘the filth and the fury’ of her youth, and she now describes her material as more real, more honest with just a pinch of tongue-in-cheek bitterness for good measure.
"Raunchy comedienne, very, very, funny"
London Evening Standard
John first walked onto stage as a young child which lead to one of the youngest trespassing charges being brought in the history of Canada. Not really but dumb comments like these lead John to start comedy in 2006, making the move to the UK after winning Canada’s COCA Comedian of the Year Award in 2012 and being the last comedian to be given an hour special on CTV. Since that move John has appeared British Television with comedy sets on both Comedy Central’s Stand Up Central and BBC Three’s Sean Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular. He loves you.

He is a global comedy circuit headliner and has appeared at numerous international comedy festivals, on BBC radio and TV, and in four series of the Chortle Award-winning stand-up and sketch show ‘Richard Herring: As It Occurs To Me’.

“If you’re a fan of Bill Bailey or Rich Hall, you’re probably a Christian Reilly fan already” -THE GUARDIAN
“Blisteringly funny songs” -THE STAGE
