The gods of comedy chose Tom Wrigglesworth for greatness
One of British stand-ups hidden gems, Dan Nightingale is one of the best performers found on the comedy circuit today. Mixing fiendishly accurate observation with energetic characterisations and killer punch lines, his comedy is original, playful, intelligent, poignant and exciting; sometimes ridiculous … but always hilarious.
Dan is a natural with the crowd, bouncing off any audience interaction wonderfully making him a much sought after host and MC and gaining him a Best Compère nomination in the Chortle Awards and securing him the title of Best MC in the UK Comedy Awards 2015.
As well as developing his reputation as a top-class circuit headliner and in-demand MC and host, Dan has also performed regular TV warm up for the likes of Jonathan Ross, John Bishop and Celebrity Juice. He has also appeared on John Bishop’s Only Joking.
Dan Nightingale is one of the best in comperes in the business, a brilliantly quick-thinking spontaneous wit
Bio coming soon.
Multi-award winning comedian Tom Taylor has received high praise from audiences and critics alike. His unique brand of musical comedy is smart and silly in equal measure and he can boast an impressive stock of quirky, and very funny, musical one-liners.
In 2013 Tom reached the final of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? competition, previously won by Dylan Moran, Lee Mack and Peter Kay. In 2014, he reached the final of the Hobgoblin Comedy Award and, the following year, won the inaugural Great Yorkshire Fringe New Comedian of the Year competition.
Recently, Tom has performed on Radio 2 and Radio 4 Extra as part of the BBC Radio New Comedy Award and has supported John Kearns, Simon Munnery and Abandoman on tour.
His brand of nervous, neurotic musical comedy – coupling deliberately simplistic tunes on an old Casio keyboard with cleverly constructed lyrics and smart wordplay – is an absolute delight.”
