“If you’re a fan of Bill Bailey or Rich Hall, you’re probably a Christian Reilly fan already.”

The Guardian

At the age of 15, Christian Reilly joined a band to get laid. The Salvation Army had different ideas…

As former integral part of the Perrier award-winning show Otis Lee Crenshaw and the Black Liars, with comic/songster Rich Hall, Christian’s career has taken him around the world three times. On his way, he received accolades at international festivals and numerous network TV credits in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Britain.

Now a solo stand-up performer and playing all the major comedy venues in his own right, Christian uses his dynamic guitar and vocal skills to target histrionic rock bands, musical theatre and morose indie musicians. He recently wrote and performed for ‘That Was Then This Is Now’ (BBC Radio 2) as musical counterpart to Richard Herring and Emma Kennedy, as well as giving his improvisation skills an outing on Radio 2’s ‘Jammin’.

Christian’s comic songs, improvisations, sharp wit and youthful energy have delighted audiences wherever he performs.

“Described by the Voice Newspaper as the Comedy Assassin, Ninia Banjamin is certainly not shy in her approach to comedy.  Although she doesn’t carry a gun, Ninia’s wit and cheeky persona is sure to kill any daring heckler’s attempts stone dead.  Armed with a big smile, Ninia’s warmth on stage, and off, lets her get away with murder.”

Best-loved as one third of BBC’s award-winning hidden-camera comedy show 3 Non-Blondes, Ninia Benjamin has branched out on her own in stand-up and is already going down a storm. Exuding confidence and natural warmth, her performances are exuberance personified in a style first unveiled in the early 90’s as one-half of the successful female comedy duo, M&N Society, who honed their talents on their home islands of Dominica and Jamaica before heading across the waters to wow punters in the UK and earn themselves the warm-up slot for the seminal BBC2 show The Real McKoy.

As a solo act, female comic Ninia Benjamin is already wowing punters from east London to Edinburgh, having stormed the famous New Act of the Year competition at London’s Hackney Empire and then done much the same for the Edinburgh festival.

“A stunning visual comedian, his unique form of slapstick comedy is backed up with an astounding variety of talents.”

‘A one-man joke shop’ who is funny, frenetic and exhausting to watch. A great visual comedian, harnessing a mind-boggling array of gadgets and gags to keep his audience in stitches. Funny, frenetic and mad, his act can feature anything from blowing up a woman and eating balloons, to cutting his hand off and doing press-ups on his willy. His very immature approach to life makes time in his company pure joy.

www.sallyannehayward.co.uk

“It’s easy to imagine Hayward at the O2 or guesting on QI.  She is a crowd-pleaser and a straightforward observational comic, but so are most of Britain’s favourite comedians today.  Hayward is easily the equal of any of them.”

The Skinny

Sally-Anne is charming and popular, with a winning brand of autobiographical humour. She’ll take you on a journey through her slightly eccentric world, including insights into the female psyche and her compulsion to send off spoof job applications.
