Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club is dedicated to providing you with the best in stand up comedy. So we'll be bringing you comedians off the telly from such shows as BBC2's Mock The Week, Shooting Stars, Channel 4's 8 Out of 10 Cats, BBC1's Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow and more.
Duncan Oakley This effervescent star of BBC Radio 4's "Shappi Talk" with Shappi Korsandi Is known for being very naughty and really quite rude, at least on stage. But this cheerfully childish behaviour belies his credentials as a seasoned professional show off. Plus he's older than he looks: Duncan has been a musician, composer and comedian for twenty years. He'll blow you away as he powers out a deft blend of stupidity and truly impressive musicianship (he's nifty on a guitar) and you'll quickly warm to his easy confidence and good natured banter. He never fails to put on a show and one with laughs you'll remember for years to come. "Bundle of charisma and hilarity" BBC "He was rightly headlining as no-one, and I mean on-one, could have followed that - it was incredible" The Stage "Some comics are charismatic, whereas some are just funny, Duncan is both by the bucket load" The Observer Official Website: www.duncanoakley.com Ray Peacock One of the most in demand comperes, headline performers and TV warm up acts on the circuit, Ray will have you rolling in the aisles.
