COMPERE: Danny Deegan
With the confidence and swagger that you might expect of a North-West comedian
at the very top of his game, Danny Deegan is a comedian, writer and actor who
has become a regular at most of the major comedy clubs in the UK since he began
performing in 2003.
"Charming, witty and most importantly funny" Metro
Johnny F Monotone
F. Monotone: Park Raconteur, Semi-Amatuer Demotivational Speaker and Wheelie
has been a regular on certain circuits for over ten years, but has only
recently broken into the world of comedy via an unlocked window. His unique
style of "comedy" quickly marked him as someone to watch, especially
with drinks or when in a darkened room, and he been all over the country
delivering his incomparable blend of homespun wisdom, unexpected insight and
correct waste management knowledge. Due to a clerical error, he was a finalist
in Chortle Student Comedian of the Year 2012 despite being neither a student
nor a comedian, and has been described by several audience members as
"impossible to forget".
“wonderfully dry lines, delivered with
unflinching deadpan” - Steve Bennett, Chortle
unnerving character whose unblinking manner and furtive garb cleverly divert
the audience's attention away from just how strong the actual jokes are.” -
