 Isaac Lee

 

Originally from Wales.... Isaac Lee (a former actor) started comedy late in September 2010.... After a short mentoring session with Anthony King, over the next months Isaac quickly progressed (with extra courses and private sessions with Logan Murray).

 Leaving the ‘open mic 5 spot scene’ quickly behind him, he now does 10, 15 and even 20 min spots. Performing regularly at ENVI (Liverpool) in front of 150+ people, Isaac has also performed in places such as The Manchester Comedy Store, The Frog and Bucket, Nottingham Glee Club, The Comedy Cafe and Up The Creek (London), but is also just as at home at ‘smaller’, ‘friendlier’ venues.  He has on more than several occasions also proved himself to be an excellent MC, both here and abroad (Spain and Germany).

 Along with his unusual dress sense (B-Rude-Westwood-Gaultier) and often changing hair colour and styles (currently blonde ‘pattern’ shaved) Isaac’s set has something for everyone.

Skipping from ‘Retro Eighties’ – to ‘modern day times’. ‘Light’ and ‘breezy’ to ‘dark’ and ‘unusual’. Often ending on a ‘show stopping rant’ about Adele and leaving the stage to shouts of more. Isaac’s set is always enjoyed and never forgotten.....

Fast witted, selfed, smooth talking 80s lover boy.  Isaac came on last and instantly won over the room.  Creative Cows/Campden Comedy Club


 Paul Dennis


"One to watch." - Kate Copstick


Don't kid yourself.  Paul Dennis may appear a concerned citizen and a romantic but it's a veil for the maelstrom of twisted logic that will draw you down into its elegantly filthy core.  With a grotesque finale to test the hardiest of sensibilities, Paul Dennis is not for the faint of heart.

After a year in London, Paul spent 3 years on the NYC circuit from whence he returned a few years ago.  He travels all over the country giving ordinary decent people nightmares and has supported acts such as Craig Campbell, Scott Capurro and John Gordillo.

Clubs:

Comic Strip, NYC 
New York Comedy Club, NYC
Improvisation, LA
Beantown Comedy Club, Boston, MA
Shaggers Leicester & Brighton 
plus many Mirth Control clubs (20s and MC)

  
Competitions:

Comedy Store King Gong - Finalist, March 2011
Uplands Fringe Comedian 2009 (Swansea) – 1st Runner Up

Our audience LOVED his twisted sense of humour.  Paul is a very professional performer with some fantastic material and slick delivery.  Very near the edge with some of his material, but somehow managed to get away with it.  Creative Cows/Campden Comedy Club

 Robyn Perkins

Robyn uses her experience as an American to compare cultural differences and share stories of debauchery. Her friendly, chatty style works with the audience to create an honest, crude, yet entertaining depiction of her life.


Brilliantly inspired American delivering a stream of extremely funny and very complex jokes.  Robyn is a consummate professional & her performance, although intricate, seemed effortless.  Creative Cows/Campden Comedy Club


Steph Peart

 

 Hailing from the depths of west Cornwall Steph Peart made her comedy debut in the Spring/Summer of 2011. Cleverly weaving  heart warming stories with slick punchlines, her instantly likeable, quirky persona; observational humour and down to earth take on life make her both easy to relate to and effortlessly charming.


Regularly performing on the London circuit and the south east, Steph also runs her own night in South London as one quarter of the group Gagster's Paradise.  www.gagsterscomedy.co.uk


Steph is a very funny, entertaining, warm and foxy comedian, with fabulous material beautifully delivered.  Expect the unexpected.  Creative Cows/Campden Comedy Club
