Show Starts 8:30pm
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.
Headlining at venues from the Falklands to Ashby De La Zouch, they’ve circumnavigated the planet, spurting amusement in concentrated twenty minute bursts but now an hour show is gestating, due to arrive bloody and screaming at some point, if not slightly before.
Danny Buckler is a globetrotting comedian with a unique style which combines story telling with improvisation, wild flights of imagination and sleight of hand skills.
He has taken three shows to The Edinburgh Festival (The Phantom 2012, Punch 2014 and Showman Shaman 2016) to great acclaim.
He has toured the UK as the support artist to stars such as Victoria Wood and most recently Jon Richardson, as well as opening for Bob Monkhouse.
With an act that mixes observational material, silly stories and quick gags with some excellent improvisational skills, Bryan guides you through his world, introducing you to some of the strange incidents and even stranger people that he seems to attract!
A knack for pulling a punchline from the unexpected, Bryan delivers his material with a cheeky charm that makes him a club and audience favourite!
Stefano is a regular face on the national and international comedy circuit, where his mixture of stand-up comedy, characters, impressions and beatboxing has seen him perform across the U.K and also Abu Dhabi, Doha, Dubai, Singapore, Germany, Malta, France and Italy.
His radio and television work includes:
Special guest on DEAD RINGERS (BBC Radio 4).
Voicing a variety of characters in the DREEM TEEM XMAS PANTO (BBC Radio 1 - two specials).

Comedy duo Rosie Revan and Alice Fennell both trained at East 15 Acting School, where they first met during a first year production of the Jacobean classic, 'Tis Pity She's a Whore' - it's about incest and stuff.
Alice played a saucy strumpet (naturally) and Rosie played an uptight Friar (perfect for her Jewish heritage). In typical method fashion, they had to 'be' the characters for an afternoon and found this so hilarious that they resulted to making up childish jokes and sexual innuendos to put each other off... They both failed that term.
Anyhow, skip forward to the present day and they’re now an established sketch act on the circuit, and winners of the Funny Women Variety Award 2013. They are regularly finalists in sketch competitions as well as regulars
at numerous festivals round the UK.
