Danny McLoughlin

“His innate comic timing, insightful digressions and ability to think on his feet puts him alongside the most talented and genuinely funny comedians”Three weeks

With an amiable, confident stage presence and sharp material Danny has rapidly risen to become a regular performer at some of the best and most respected clubs in the country.

This charming and charismatic comedian has a razor sharp wit and is a master of improvisation.

He is also in demand as tour support for some of the biggest names in UK comedy and has been hand picked to support a number of high profile acts on tour including; Micky Flanagan, Sarah Millican, Doc Brown and Sean Lock.

Danny has also been gracing the small screen, appearing on Al Murray’s  ‘One Night Stand’ (Dave) and the ‘Premier League Show’ (BBC Two) and recently took to the radio waves to co-host one of Jason Manford’s Sunday morning shows for Absolute Radio.


Steve Shanyaski

“LOL’ing all over at him” – Sara Cox, Radio 1

 “A very, very funny man” - Rob Ellis, Capital FM

Endlessly charming, Steve’s inherent warmth and cheeky, roguish twinkle shines through his material, elevating him to quite another level as a performer.

Within the first six months of his comedy career he made it through to the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedian of the Year and the North West Comedian of the Year Final.

Since then he has gone from strength to strength. Combining surreal observations with wildly tangential imaginings, his off kilter set pieces have audiences fully immersed in ‘Stevie World’ as he leads them down the charming avenues of his inner mind.

His whirlwind performances and thrilling routines have constantly proven a hit with even the quietest crowds… the key to his act being his energy and silliness.

He has performed his comedy throughout the world: to an audience as diverse as bikers in a field, to royalty in a theatre, and never ceases to go down a storm.
