News Story

Sean Collins

Canadian Sean Collins has 25 years experience in stand up comedy, with initial success leading to ‘Best Male Stand Up’ nominations at the Canadian Comedy Awards, a Just For Laughs Gala set at Montreal and his own hour long special on Canadian television.

Since residing in the UK, Sean quickly established himself as a strong performer. His appearance on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow on BBC 1 proved a portentous gig for Sean, affording him the opportunity to perform at The Real Variety Showcase for Jeremy Lee Associates, the UK’s biggest specialist agency for after dinner speakers, awards hosts and cabaret for corporate, industry and public sector events. For his performance that night he was awarded the ‘Expert Choice’ as he ‘struck the most corporate note of the evening’ (The Stage 2013). Jeremy Lee Associates considered him the ‘stand out act’.

Expert comedy done effortlessly … a veteran of comedy, Collins is long overdue a major break.

Gerry K

Anecdotal, observational and refreshingly honest in style, Gerry K’s comedy is enriched by a somewhat unique perspective. Real name Gerry Kyei (pronounced “Chay”), Gerry was born in the East End, but grew up in rural Essex, as a rare black face in an almost totally white and very parochial area (a million miles away from the traditional Essex stereotype towns like Harlow, Basildon, Romford and Southend). In addition to providing some truly original insights into life in rural England, these early experiences have ensured Gerry’s comedy delights an incredible range of audiences often confounding expectations.

Starting in comedy as the result of a dare, his rise to headline act was a quick one, scooping a range of accolades along the way including; The Comedy Store’s ‘King Gong’, Metrolife Comedy Newcomer, and The Comedy Café’s Best Newcomer Awards.
As an actor he has appeared on The Bill and Angelo’s and recently enjoyed a cameo role on
Jimmy Carr’s Xmas DVD. As a presenter, he’s hosted the football forum with former England international and I’m A Celebrity bad boy Rodney Marsh and legendary Sky host Jeff Stelling for Zoo Magazine and has also guested on BBC Nottingham’s ‘The Breakfast Show’.

With his energetic and likeable personality, infectious joie de vivre and a beaming smile that
warms up the coldest of nights, Gerry K is a truly feelgood act.

Gerry K was fabulous – super entertainer and a lovely guy. We’re all still talking about the evening and remembering some of his jokes – very very funny.

Luke Honnoraty

Luke Honnoraty (MC) is living proof that some people were born to be on stage. He combines childish humour with an amazing self awareness and natural stage presence resulting in an infectiously funny set. Luke is such a funny fella he’s a keen favourite amongst comedians on the circuit. As a result of his fast growing reputation as a brilliant act he’s been chosen to support on tour some big names such as Russell Kane and Katherine Ryan.

I won’t be surprised if I am writing for this guy's TV show in the next 5 years – he’s that good.
