    ‘This show is confident, clever and witty – and has heart. It has successfully moved beyond its niche into a more mainstream entertainment show, whilst still pushing the boundaries.’

  • DARA O BRIAIN AND ED BYRNE TO TRAVEL THE PAN AM HIGHWAY FOR BBC TWO

    DARA O BRIAIN AND ED BYRNE TO TRAVEL THE PAN AM HIGHWAY FOR BBC TWO

    Dara and Ed’s Pan Am Adventure will consist of three hour long episodes for broadcast on both BBC Two and RTE. Each episode will follow friends Dara O Briain and Ed Byrne on an epic journey as they travel along one of the world’s greatest roads, the Pan American Highway.

    In 1940 three men, Sullivan Richardson, Arnold Whitaker and Kenneth Van Hee from Detroit set off on one of the greatest road trips of all time as they attempted to become the first to drive all the way from North to South America. Back then, the Pan American Highway was at best a dirt track; at worst non-existent. The journey was so audacious, the American press dubbed them the ‘three damn fools’.

    Their extraordinary adventure blazed a trail for one of the longest road networks in the world. Seventy years on, Dara and Ed, set out on their own epic journey to see for themselves how the construction of the Pan American Highway has transformed the Americas.

    OFF THE KERB ARE PLEASED TO WELCOME PHIL JERROD TO THE STABLE

    Phil Jerrod began his stand-up career underneath an Angus Steakhouse in 2012. Since then he has failed his PhD, walked out of his job in publishing and been entertaining audiences up and down the country with his elegant rants on the often unfathomable problems of modern life.

    His innovative stream-of-consciousness style, inspired by a harsh upbringing in the cruel and unforgiving conditions of middle-class rural Warwickshire, has seen him perform in clubs, arts centres and theatres all across the UK and helped build his reputation as having grown one of the largest beards in stand-up comedy.

    He has recently been nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Award 2014, and in 2013 was a semi-finalist in So You Think You’re Funny New Act of the Year Competition and a quarter finalist in the Amused Moose Laugh Off.

    ANDY PARSONS – SLACKTIVIST DVD RELEASED 25TH NOVEMBER 2013

    ‘It’s great to welcome sharp, topical comedy on to the live circuit – and Parsons remains one of its most skilful exponents’ - The Guardian

    ‘Andy Parsons’ lethal mixture of anger and ridicule leaves the Big Society in tatters’ – The Times

    Politicians complain of a left-wing media bias but there are plenty of right-wing comedians – it just seems that most of them are being investigated by Operation Yewtree. Maybe it’s a deliberate smokescreen given that politicians, rather than journalists or estate agents, are now the least respected and trusted of all professions. Boris Johnson is the only current politician in the country with a popularity above –1. Comedians have seen this and are standing to be politicians. Are you going to lie back and let the clowns take over? Are you going to stick your head under the duvet as ‘Bozzer’ de Pfeffel Johnson rides his crazy zipwire into town?

  • FURTHER REVIEWS IN FOR CHEAP SHOTS AT THE DEFENCELESS

    There’s a case to be made that John Gordillo is one of the key shapers of our modern comedy landscape. His may not be a widely recognised name (he’s probably best known as the presenter of topical BBC comedy show The RDA, a brilliant oddity that lives long in the memory), but as a writer, director and benevolent svengali he’s helped to set many a major stand-up star on the road to greatness. In his own right, he’s a spectacularly creative comic, offering sets that use politics, romance and family relationships as jumping-off points for wildly ambitious social theorising and sparkily funny comedy. He produces shows that genuinely make you think in a whole new way while keeping you laughing throughout. His last solo show, Fuckonomics – proposing a new economic theory based on our desire for sex – was one of the most intellectually ambitious offerings the fringe has seen in recent years.

    – The Guardian

    John Gordillo is one of the smartest men in comedy. A brilliant combination and examination of the fake personal and the real personal. Typically intelligent, at times extraordinarily frank… this is quality, brain-food comedy. A great hour.

    – Scotland on Sunday

    An arresting and perceptive hour from a stand up who truly gets at the nub of a creeping malaise with a message that ought to give anyone pause for thought.

    – The Scotsman
