ROGER MONKHOUSE

"packs in more observations on the human condition in a twenty minute set than

a whole lecture on Jean-Paul Sartre"

Venue Magazine

A consummate stand-up who employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience. A highly original and quirky performer, Roger Monkhouse`s trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit. Supremely confident, with audience banter down to an art form, Roger is happy to improvise freely but has no shortage of first class material in his armoury. A master of observational comedy with a routine that is universally and unfailingly hysterical.  A sought after compere and headliner across the UK and internationally. 

Look out for Roger Monkhouse`s recent performance on The Comedy Store for Comedy Central. 

"UNFAILINGLY ENTERTAINING AND SKILFULLY ABLE TO PULL PUNCHLINES, SEEMINGHLY, OUT OF THIN AIR" Chortle

 Josh Pugh

Josh Pugh 580x350

 

offbeat ideas, strong imagery and dry observational asides, he finds laughs in unusual places. A promising voice
Steve Bennett (Chortle)

From his very first gig in May 2014, English Comedian of the Year 2016 Josh Pugh has gained a proven track record of being a winner.

He won that Funhouse gong show and has since gone on to win Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent Award 2015 and the Nottingham Comedy Festival New Act of the Year Award 2015. In between he somehow won Midland New Act of the Year in both 2014 and 2015 (we don’t know how it works either). This year, he came 3rd in the NATYS (formerly Hackney New Empire Comedian of the Year) before going on to win English Comedian of the Year 2016.

Winner – English Comedian of the Year 2016
Winner – Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent Award 2015
Winner – Nottingham Comedy Festival New Act of the Year Award 2015
Winner – Midland New Act of the Year 2014 (and 2015 somehow)
Finalist – NATYS (formerly Hackney New Empire Comedian of the Year) 2016

A keen comic mind.
Bruce Dessau (London Evening Standard)
But that’s enough about his multiple award-winning status. More importantly, he’s funny. That’s why he does well in competitions, with confident and clever writing that takes you off on glorious tangents. Steve Bennett of Chortle.co.uk calls him a “promising voice” who “finds laughs in unusual places” whilst The Londonest says he’s “pleasingly off the beaten track”. Josh has a unique, interesting and funny voice with a very exciting future.

Pleasingly off the beaten track.
