Live at the Hub

Price: £ 12.00



Duncan Oakley is an infectiously funny man. He is imaginative, playful and daft and his proudly childlike silliness has won him a couple of awards along the way. Duncan has been a performing songwriter and musician since the 80s and has been on the UK comedy circuit since 1999, performing on Radio 4 a few times and with many a Summer festival under his belt, as well as being a self-published children’s author and illustrator.
With Duncan Oakley you can expect songs, gags, stories, poems and all kinds of other nonsense but most of all big laughs from your inner oaf.

“Brilliant. A true, funny entertainer” – BAFTA winner Dave Johns

Top Birmingham based comedian James Cook is recently back on the comedy circuit full time after seven years as an NTL Award-winning commercial radio presenter. His act mixes jokes and sarcasm with a quick wit and excellent improvisation skills that make him an accomplished compere. He performs for The Glee Clubs, Highlight, Off The Kerb, Kill For A Seat, The Last Laugh and The Comedy Company among many others and is one third of the News With Jokes podcast that was named one of the Top Ten funniest in The Guardian. http://newswithjokes.podbean.com

Eva is a North East Comic quickly becoming a South West Legend, with hopes that the rest of the country follows suit. Always honest, occasionally crude and only banned from one national televised talent show, she is becoming a fast rising star of the comedy world. Recently seen on BBC 1 and heard on any local radio station that will have her – Eva is a performer to catch now or miss out.

Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year WINNER 2024 and one to watch!

Hitz is from Leicester but recently moved to Milton Keynes and classes that as an upgrade. His surname is too hard to pronounce so he has to go by “hitz.comedy” on all social media platforms. Hitz has performed up and down the country and is making a name for himself on the comedy circuit. His stories on the ups and downs of being a British Indian will have you in stitches. Finalist at the Nodding Dog New Online Comedian of the Year 2020, finalist at the Enfield Comedy Club Gong Show 2020, regional finalist at the BBC New Comedy Awards 2021 and winner of the Alestone Comedy Competition 2021.

“Eddy Midgley is a new act out of Huddersfield and one with an enormous future” – Laffalot Promotions

“A lively performer who would be a credit to any line up. This cheerful and happy looking comic gave an engaging performance that everyone enjoyed. A fast moving set and he built up a lot of momentum. The makings of a formidable act and his energy fills the room.” NottsComedy Review
