Roger Monkhouse

Thumb

Roger Monkhouse is one of the most original and distinctive acts on the comedy scene. A consummate stand-up who employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience. A highly original and quirky performer, Roger’s trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit.

Distinguished as a comic by his eloquence and keen eye for a fine phrase, Roger’s easy observational style is spiked by the signal flares of an accomplished gag writer. A supremely confident compere and seasoned corporate host, Roger is happy to improvise freely with a crowd and is at great ease bantering with an audience, but has no shortage of first class observational material in his armoury.

“unfailingly entertaining and skilfully able to pull punchlines, seemingly, out of thin air” Chortle

Wilson - Support

Wilson burst on to the stand up comedy scene in November 2011, quickly getting to the final of the ‘max Turner prize’ in just his fourth gig. At first he comes across as a cheeky chappie, but it doesn’t take long to realise that Wilson has a lot more strings to his bow – a mixture of sharp observations, pinpoint accents and curveball one liners that suit all types of audience.
