Rob Deering

Rob Deering

The Hilarious Rob Deering. As seen on Comedy Rocks With Jason Manford (ITV1), The Weakest Link Comedians’ Special (BBC1), Celebrity Mastermind (winner) (BBC1). With his easy charm, cheesy singing voice, razor-sharp wit and clownish physicality Rob has quickly established himself as a firm favourite on the comedy circuit around Britain. Rob Deering performs stand-up comedy with music, using a guitar, a loop pedal and his voice to create impressive rock and pop soundscapes – and does jokes, of course. Along with being one of the most in-demand headliners on the UK circuit, he’s toured nationally and performed solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe many times since starting out in comedy in the year 2000. He also recently ran all over Britain for BBC 6 Music. Yes, Rob runs and presents the podcast Running Commentary with fellow running comic Paul Tonkinson, and fundraises for his favoured charity Parkinson’s UK having run seven marathons.


Julian Deane

Opening the show is the incredible Julian Deane who has been wowing audiences across the country with his genius punch lines and perfect delivery. His witty writing skills have been put to use on Matt Forde’s Unspun (Dave Channel), which he wrote for in 2016. This year, Julian will support Paul Chowdhry on the highly-anticipated tour Live Innit. Having first performed stand up in 2005, Julian’s brilliant, utterly original and hilarious routines have earned him appreciation, recognition and praise from audiences across the country. Julian has proved his talent by winning some of the most prestigious stand-up comedy competitions in the country and is also in big demand as a writer (Mock the Week).
