An Antipodean double header this month with the superpowered Jarred Christmas and the arts-and-crafty Bec Hill joined by Dans Bland and Nightingale:
* * JARRED CHRISTMAS * *
Jarred has a unique style that deftly mixes gags with storytelling. He has a dynamic onstage persona and the ability to improvise and roll with anything that's thrown his way, making his comedy sizzle with originality.
Full of passion and charisma, Jarred won the Chortle Comedy Award for Best Compere and is a regular TV performer and guest panellist on shows such as Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Dave's One Night Stand, Mock the Week, Russell Howard's Good News and 8 Out of 10 Cats.
"A must see ... high octane comedy" - New Zealand Herald
* * BEC HILL * *
Bec has been performing comedy since the age of 19, when she reached the televised National Final of the Raw Comedy Competition in Australia. Her acclaimed solo shows and hugely popular YouTube videos which have garnered over 200,000 views globally have gained her a cult status in both Australia and the UK, where she is now based.
Bec also has a prolific Twitter presence, which led to her being named one of Time Out’s Top 5 Funniest Comedians on Twitter next to the likes of Milton Jones and Steve Martin. Furthermore, as a writer, she has worked on the BBC sitcom Bluestone 42 as well as writing for Hugh Dennis and Steve Punt on The Now Show.
Bec has a talent for incorporating arts and crafts into her stand-up routines, creating a unique and unforgettable comedy stlye that she calls "paper-puppetry comedy". This, along with her positive attitude, has made her a sought-after performer worldwide, for both adults and children.
"Bec Hill and her side-splittingly funny stand-up routine are a joy to behold ... definitely a name to remember with a smile." - Three Weeks
* * DAN BLAND * *
Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2010 runner-up and Manchester Comedy Festival award winner, Dan brings a touch of darkness to the comedy circuit. His morbid 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.
"Razor-sharp jokes beautifully delivered" - Paul Sinha
* * DAN NIGHTINGALE * *
One of British stand-ups hidden gems, Dan Nightingale is one of the best performers found on the comedy circuit today.
He's a natural with the crowd, bouncing off any audience interaction woderfully making him a much sought after host and MC and gaining him a Best Compère nomination in the Chortle Awards.
"Dan Nightingale is one of the best in comperes in the business, a brilliantly quick-thinking spontaneous wit" - Chortle
