More about the comedians …
Our headliner – Nick Page shot to fame when he made the Britain’s Got Talent semi finals in 2018.
Nick Page is a seemingly indestructible, larger than life, award winning English comic whose life is a series of disasters somehow turning into unlikely triumphs. No gimmicks, no PowerPoint, no props and no flipcharts. Just stories and belly laughs with a master of his art.
Andy Gleeks – Having been on the circuit for four years now, Andy Gleeks has established himself as an act who delivers, firstly and foremost, as a ‘natural MC’, who ‘effortlessly engages the audience…with ‘warmth and charm’ He can be trusted to steer a night into, and through, funny waters each and every time, due to his ‘cracking ad libs’.
Dani Johns – Quick witted, brutally honest and full of Bristolian charm, Dani Johns is a rising star on the comedy circuit. With an energetic mix of storytelling and serious over sharing, Dani is an instantly likeable act and described as a “pocket rocket of a comedian” whose “sassy delivery captivates every audience member”.
Ian Murphy – Ian is new to comedy at the ripe age of 51, he’d like to point out that this isn’t a make a wish situation, but more of the fact that he’s come to terms with his inner idiot. Hailing originally from Liverpool his failed football career and his loss of £1M live on TV means he has turned to comedy instead of sobbing all alone in the dark with only his misery and failed dreams for company.
Sam Michael – Our local MC living in Swindon is a Stand-up comedian, radio presenter and events host. Described as ‘observational’, ‘topical’ and ‘very physical’. He has written and performed comedy to audiences across the UK and has a YouTube following with over 1,200 subscribers.
