Roger Monkhouse - Headliner
Roger Monkhouse is one of the most original and distinctive acts on the comedy scene. 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’s trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit.
Distinguished as a comic by his eloquence and keen eye for a fine phrase, Roger’s easy observational style is spiked by the signal flares of an accomplished gag writer. A supremely confident compere and seasoned corporate host, Roger is happy to improvise freely with a crowd and is at great ease bantering with an audience, but has no shortage of first class observational material in his armoury.
“unfailingly entertaining and skilfully able to pull punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air” Chortle
John Newton - Support
John began his comedy career in 2003. He fast became known for his inventive writing, covering a massive spectrum of subjects from the surreal to the hard hitting, yet still managing to remember that “the gag” comes first. In that respect, he’s an old-fashioned gag teller/writer and proud of it.
“John sucks you into his world with obscurely brilliant comedy” - The Comedy Vibe
Ravi Holy - Compere
Ravi Holy is the Vicar of Wye by day and a comedian by night. He won the Canterbury Festival’s comedy competition in 2016 and was voted Funniest Vicar by the four Inbetweeners after performing live on the One Show (although to be fair, there were only two other contestants!)
’ I booked Ravi because I knew he would add something different to the night. He succeeded so spectacularly that I took several minutes to reset the atmosphere of the room after he came off stage to make it easier for the next act. Excellent, hilariously funny, can’t wait to have him back!" – Al Cowie, Promoter of Laugh Comedy at the Ram Brewery, Wandsworth
