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.Recently, Tom has performed on Radio 2 and Radio 4 Extra as part of the BBC Radio New Comedy Award and has supported Simon Munnery on tour.
“His brand of nervous, neurotic musical comedy is an absolute delight” – The Skinny
Fresh and unique, it’s a pleasure to spend time in Harriet Dyer’s company as she weaves her surreal and hilarious tales. An imitable raconteur, it’s easy to see how this newer act is making a big noise.
Harriet already has heads turning with her baffling tales of a misspent youth, and bewildering personal tales that are so ridiculous, they must be true. Establishing her own style of material and delivery after such a short time, means Harriet’s stock can only continue to rise.
“a bundle of whimsical hilarity… a breath of fresh air… will have you in stitches” – Broadway Baby
A hotly tipped up and upcoming comedian on the circuit, Pete Selwood has quickly risen through the comedy ranks with swagger. After winning the Lawrence Batley New Yorkshire Comedian of the Year (quite a mouthful), he has gone from strength to strength, winning comedy competitions and winning over audiences.
Barnsley born, he is an adept storyteller, focussing on tales of Northern life as a perpetually single man in his 20s. Being born with only one hand also gives him a unique view and experience of the world around him, poking fun at having a fairly minor disability in modern Britain.
In keeping with his material about disability, Selwood is also half of a double-act with Britain’s Got Talent star Jack Carroll, performing sketches and creating videos about the portrayal of disability within our society.
“grace and good humour, immensely likeable” – North West End
