His sold out debut Edinburgh Fringe show, No Scrubs was nominated for NextUp’s inaugural Biggest Award in Comedy.

Roger Monkhouse
Comedian Roger Monkhouse“Unfailingly entertaining – a gifted natural” Chortle

Roger Monkhouse is one of the regular writers on Channel 4’s hugely popular comedy panel show ‘8 Out of 10 Cats.’ He is responsible for scripting up-to-the-minute topical gags every week for the show which features Jimmy Carr alongside team captains Dave Spikey and Sean Lock. Other television credits include appearances on ‘The Comedy Store’ and ‘The World Stands Up’, (both Paramount), ‘My God I’m My Dad’ (Bravo) and ‘Street Cred Sudoku’ (UKG2). Nevertheless, he remains a clear favourite of comedy insiders and is probably comedy’s best kept secret: In other words, in our view and the view of many others, he is one of the best (possibly THE best) comedian who’s not famous yet!

A consummate stand-up who exerts a masterful control over any audience. A highly original and quirky performer, his trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit. Supremely confident, with audience banter down to an art form, he’s happy to improvise freely but has no shortage of first class material in his armoury. Roger is widely regarded as a master of observational comedy with routines that are universally and unfailingly hysterical.

Chris Brooker
Comedian Chris Booker

“Very funny, very quick… On the spot humour.” BBC

“The best act of the night, his quick wit silencing hecklers and getting plenty of laughs.” Manchester Evening News

“The revelation of the night. Spot on.” Now Toronto

A gifted performer, Chris Brooker has taken his unique mix of comedy and improvisation to stages all over the world. After a decade on the UK comedy circuit Chris has forged a fine reputation for himself as a stand-up comedian and compère. His versatility has seen him play to audiences of all sizes and backgrounds, winning them over with his infectious enthusiasm, swift wit and immense likeability. Dubbed comedy’s ginger Viking by a promoter, he really is a larger than life character.

One of comedy’s heavy hitters, Chris Brooker’s infectious energy and enthusiasm sweeps through a room like an irresistible force. Chris’ combination of hilarious, original material and inspired improvisation means that you will never see the same routine twice. Immensely likeable, there’s no doubting his
ability to win over any crowd and drag them along for the ride.
