Phil Butler - Headliner
Phil Butler has always been a popular act, even in the early days when he was serving his apprenticeship in holiday parks, end of the pier shows, pantos and cruise ships. These were happy times for Phil, especially being part of big production shows, where he could show off his other talents like singing and dancing. Soon he found himself starring in these big shows, playing the comic lead in pantomime and seeing his name in lights with shows such as ‘Phil Butler’s Christmas Party’ in Blackpool and ‘Seaside Special’ which is the UKs number one summer show.
Wanting to explore other avenues and experience new challenges, he joined the UK comedy circuit in 2001, where he is now found closing the show at all the major comedy clubs such as Jongleurs, Highlight, The Comedy Club, The Glee Club, The Banana Comedy Club, Bearcat, Baby Blue, Hyena Comedy Café, Last Laugh, but to name a few. Phil has also had the great honour of performing for our British troops in Iraq, Kosovo, Bosnia, Croatia and several times in Afghanistan. Phil was amongst the first comedians to perform to the troops on the front line.
‘’Phil Butler’s got it all … unique, original and hilarious’’ The Stage
‘’Without doubt, one of the most exciting and original finds in comedy in recent years’’ The Guardian
‘’Phil brought the house down with a truly original and riotous act of visual comedy’’
Dan Bland - Support
Dan Bland brings a touch of darkness to the comedy circuit. His morbidly deadpan disposition owes more to a grumpy undertaker than a genial stand-up comedian. But that funereal facade belies a devilish comic mind that has beguiled countless audiences. Delivering explosive one-liners with razor-sharp precision, deadpan Dan unfailingly ensures that he is the only person in the room to keep a straight face.
“Dan Bland is like a slow-burning explosive. His deliberate monotone delivery lulls you into a false sense of security, until you suddenly realise you’ve been hit in the face by a rapid-fire round of blistering one-liners.” Guardian
