ANTHONY J BROWN
Clad in a sartorially edifying bespoke manner, like a dapper and dandy funeral director, Anthony cuts a unique on-stage presence with humour blacker than a raven that has slammed it’s claw in a coffin lid.
Eschewing the well trodden terrain of the one-liner witticism, Mr Brown’s penchant is for 4, 5, 6 and 7-liners drenched in evocative imagery and laced with comedic red herrings. And not the merest hint of profanity.
He constantly engages the assembled throng with a cryogenic stare whilst slowly and very gently caressing the microphone stand with well manicured talons.
To be quite so casually tactile with an inanimate object in full public view takes a certain confidence, especially whilst punctuating his bizarre and often hilariously misanthropic anecdotes with measured pauses that you could reverse a Heavy Goods Vehicle through.
The overall effect is both perversely hypnotic and wholly original, leaving the audience zealously hanging on to every syllable like turncoat lemmings on a rockface.
He appears at all the major UK venues.

“A slick, appealing crowd-pleaser with a strong hoodie-based song to lift the atmosphere, a nice visual gag to close and some winningly self-deprecating material to link it all together … Something, then, for almost everyone.” CHORTLE – Steve Bennett
Hailing from deepest, darkest Tamworth, Ben Davids has established himself as one of the brightest new acts on the circuit in recent years.
His act is a barrage of non-stop gags and one-liners that range from the silly to the very silly indeed, and that will provide something a bit different for any comedy night.
He has progressed to paid 15 and 20s for clubs like Ship of Fools, Mirth on Monday, Bottle Rocket, HaHa Comedy and more, and was selected to take part in the prestigious Big Value Show for Just the Tonic at the Edinburgh Festival in 2009.
“Davids’s one-liners showed considerable skill in their writing, and he displayed an admirable sense of timing in telling them.” – Chortle
“Ben Davids got plenty of laughs with dry one-liners.” – Leicester Mercury
‘Brilliant.’ – Russell Howard
