A key figure in the cabaret and variety revival, Mat has headlined and
hosted shows across the UK, and regularly appears further afield,
including residencies in the legendary European Variete theatres, appearances in gala shows on stage and television the world over,
and regular invitations to perform in such iconic venues as the
Royal Albert Hall, The Savoy Hotel, and Hollywood's Magic Castle.
He has entertained corporate clients too numerous to mention,
consulted on major Hollywood movies, guest-starred on high-profile television shows, but is never happier than when he's in front of a live audience, with a glint in his eye and a trick up his sleeve.
Clinton Baptiste is the psychic who never swerves unpalatable news from beyond the grave for anyone joining his seance. Advising, guiding, conveying the unsayable and making up all sorts of other rubbish delivered from the Afterlife.
Originating from Peter Kay’s C4 ‘Phoenix Nights’ TV series, he may just touch a nerve with his audience as a conduit for the spirits!
Blending comedy & magic with absolute nonsense, Stu Turner's offbeat act is sometimes silly, sometimes surreal... But always baffling and entertaining!
Combining one-liners, visual gags, and very clever magic, he also uses audience participation to create a unique and very enjoyable show.
With over 15 years performing experience under his belt, Stu is proud to
say he's supported Bob Monkhouse at Lakeside Country Club, appeared
on TV with Des O’Connor, and enjoyed performing at the
London Palladium. More recently, Stu was invited to perform at
The Windsor Castle although, in fairness, this turned out to be a
grotty little pub in Slough...
Keep your eye out for Stu as he crops up on the cabaret scene, and he'd
like to point out that he's especially proud that Penn & Teller fooled him..!
This warm, vibrant, cheeky chap has a natural story telling ability that captures all the audience, tickling your funny bone whether you are young or old. From the mishaps of life to the mischief of his extensive work experience as a bingo caller to holiday park entertainer to children’s party host, it makes him one of the most versatile and adaptable comedians & comperes out there.
Travelling the length and breadth of Britain not only as a comedian but as a host to corporate events, Phil really does cover it all. Playing a number of big name clubs throughout the UK. Phil Has also worked alongside and supported some of Britain’s top comedians such as Jason Manford, John Bishop, Tim Vine, Lee Nelson, Patrick Monahan & Bobby Davro.
Privileged and ever so slightly pompous Jasper Cromwell-Jones is the hapless explorer character and brain child of stand-up Joe Bor.
He tours the country recounting details of his latest (and usually
disastrous) expedition via his newly published book.
Jasper delights audiences with stories of his 'all the gear, no idea'
approach to adventuring.
His blissful ignorance, upper class social standing and loveable
dope personality, combine beautifully to create a character
where audiences are happy to tag along for the ride.
