Catch 22 with MC Josh Jones, Rob Deering and Allyson June Smith
Born and bred in Manchester, our MC Josh Jones has, in just three short years, gone from an open spot to a regular at some of the biggest comedy clubs in the country. 2019 saw Josh nominated for the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year, and he continues to wow audiences up and down the country. Josh was also named as one of Chortle’s Ones to Watch in 2019 and he appeared as part of the Pleasance Reserve at the Edinburgh Fringe.
‘Engaging personality, and a back-story that should keep him in routines for years to come’ Chortle
Hilariously observational and not afraid to over-share, Allyson June Smith is a funny firecracker of confessional wit, bite and shame. Hailing from Canada, Allyson brings a certain North American bluntness to her deeply personal brand of stand up – expect to hear about lost dates and lost days, the birds, the bees, the blues, and all manner of modern life issues facing this decidedly bold female stand-up comic.
Ditching a career as a classroom teacher, Smith has been on the scene since 2000, earning notable celebrity in her home country with multiple nominations for Best Female Stand-up at the Canadian Comedy Awards.
Back home, Allyson also taped her own hour-long Comedy Now special, and scored multiple headline slots at the Winnipeg, Halifax and Montreal’s Just For Laughs festivals. She is a regular warm-up for compatriot comic Stewart Francis, who called her “yet another hilarious Canadian with great hair.”
Another fan is Jason Manford, who conceded: “She has set the bar high! Think I need a different less-good support!”. Ouch.
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 do jokes, of course. His career started with a bang reaching the finals of the BBC New Comedy Award and the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year Competition. He has become a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe festival and gigs across the world.
“One of the leading stand-ups of his generation” – Time Out
