MC Gary Tro



★★★★ – VENUE

Expect comic genius -

As seen on BBC iPlayer and heard on BBC Radio 4, stand-up Gary Tro ("expect comedic genius" - is an exciting breakthrough act making waves on the UK and international comedy circuit with his joyously angry and hilariously anarchic style of comedy.

In addition to stand-up, Gary is something of a gifted all-rounder with skills including acting, presenting and voice over work. He’s also a talented improviser and performs as one half of nerd-culture double act The Just Us League

A regular on the touring circuit, in 2017 Gary supported Tez Ilyas on national tour and took his own show ‘SupercalifragilisticexpiGaryTrocious’ to festivals all across the UK and at the Charleston Comedy Festival USA. In 2018, Gary is making his Australian touring debut with his new show ‘Gary Tro-ke Karaoke’.

NEWCOMER - Ben Robson

South Coast Comedian of the Year RUNNER UP 2018

Co-creator and MC of Chortle Award winning GOAT comedy

"Hilariously funny. Will make you cry with laughter" - Broadway Baby

Some people have it and some people don’t. Ben Robson definitely does! His comedy style is best described as playful, high energy silliness, leaving audiences gleefully in suspense over what’s coming next. Often taking the p**s out of comedy itself in his set. Very unusual and unique act, well worth seeing. Ben is the Co-creator and MC of Chortle Award winning ‘Best Club Night in the South 2018’ for GOAT comedy.

What the press have to say:

"Hilariously funny. Will make you cry with laughter" - Broadway Baby

"Keeps audiences engaged and entertained with his quirky sense of humour and charm" - Collin Baxter, Arundel Jailhouse

"A Super fun, confident and charismatic act with a sickening level of natural ability" - Chris Young, Hastings Fringe Comedy Festival.
