This month we welcome ……….Guest MC Rob Thomas
Rob Thomas – “What a great compere. His audience interaction was excellent and his gags were superb.” Martin Mullaney, Cheeky Monkey Comedy.
Rob Thomas is a quirky, energetic, storytelling comic currently racing up the comedy ladder like a squirrel on Red Bull. Rob has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and the Leicester Square Theatre with the likes of Milton Jones, Jo Brand and Stewart Lee, and is as comfortable in front of a packed theatre as he is in the upper room of a local pub.
He got the silver medal in the UK Pun Championships 2015, the Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year 2014 award and the Montreux Comedy Festival New Act (UK Region) for 2014 and 2015. In short, he’s funny
and Rob has the pleasure of introducing us to…
President Obonjo… is a mock Nigerian dictator complete with full military regalia. He’s very very different and very good. He plays around with our cliched observations of Nigerians / africans and of course because he is of african origin himself he can totally get away with it. Or put it another way, he’s the only person who could get away with it, which is why it’s unique.
“President Obonjo has everything you’d expect of a tinpot African dictator: an Army uniform full of self-awarded medals and the forceful, booming rhetoric of a strong, if corrupt, leader. It’s a great comic construct, with lots of seized opportunities for playing with the cliches. ” – Chortle critic
Darius Davis… is a more traditional stand-up, but he’s very energetic, quite brash but has a loveable streak. Darius is a seasoned performer first cutting his teeth in 2007 in the comedy clubs of New York city. Success quickly followed as Darius won an MTV New Talent contest, opening the door for Darius to strut his stuff on MTV america. Alas due to “visa irregularities” Darius soon found himself back, and uncelebrated in London.
Certain that success would be just as swift, Darius launched himself on the UK comedy scene. In the blink of an eye (four and half years later) Darius found himself gigging regularly up and down the country entertaining the crowds with his high-energy, captivating, and hilarious tales.
“This guy is amazing” – Scott Mills, BBC Radio 1
