Hilarity Bites – Alfie Joey, Patrick Draper and Host Tony Jameson
Alfie Joey is a man of many talents. An artist, broadcaster, podcaster, comedian, communication coach, Ted X speaker, impressionist, interviewer, charity auctioneer, motivator, children’s author, MC… take your pick! Alfie Joey has covered a lot of ground & cultivated many skills in his time on this spinning rock.
For over two decades Alfie has been in demand as a host, comic and speaker in the corporate, entertainment & charity sectors. He has motivated and inspired people at Ted X, MC’d Wembley Arena, acted in sitcoms and pantomime, presented the breakfast show on BBC Newcastle for over a decade, and his Britain’s Got Talent appearance was watched by over 10 million people on prime-time TV, and has been viewed over 3 million times on YouTube.
“Alfie is a star. He¹d be the funny neighbour in a sitcom, the one who everybody in the studio audience cheers for. Alfie spreads joy like a virus, he will make you glad to be alive” – TimeOut
“A cheerful and natural talent, Alfie has plenty in his comedic bag of tricks to spread good cheer through any audience. With his spot-on impersonations and enthusiastic banter, he’d be right at home at a Royal Variety Performance… his effusive bonhomie is genuine and his material original and funny” – Chortle
Since Patrick Draper first nonchalantly ambled onto the stage in October 2011, he has cemented his place on the UK comedy circuit with a mixed bag of deadpan jokes, visual gags and songs.
After making it to the finals of the English Comedian Of The Year awards in 2015, Patrick then took his debut show, Absolutely Vacuous to the Edinburgh Fringe festival, where his laissez-faire hour of comedy received a “Highly Recommended Show” accolade from Fringe Review, amongst other glowing critiques. Patrick can now be found making people laugh in some of the most prestigious comedy clubs all over the UK
“His unenthusiastic style has a nice, unhurried rhythm…” – Chortle
Since starting in September, 2008, Tony Jameson has established himself firmly as one of the brightest prospects in the North East comedy scene.
With his whimsical rambling manner, or flight of fancy, Tony takes audiences on a tour of the inner workings of his mind and the strange things that happen in his life. Fleeting from whimsy to dark one-liners, before stopping for a cup of tea and a breather. It’s a bit like a small child who always asks ‘why?’ His observations are well thought out, keeping the audience on their toes and intrigued, eager to see where his journey will take them.
In 2014 Tony had an exceptional run at the Edinburgh Festival, following a sell-out run in 2013 with his critically acclaimed show Football Manager Ruined My Life, which he then toured throughout Winter 2014, before taking it back on the road in 2015.
“Tony Jameson delivered both an imaginatively amusing and well received performance…” – Three Weeks
“Terrific… Wonderful… Life-affirming stuff…” – The Skinny
“The latest Geordie with massive potential” – Yorkshire Evening Press
