Looking for that ideal Christmas present... you found it!

 

**CHRISTIAN REILLY**

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’.

“The word ‘charisma’ is bandied around too often, but Christian does have it in spades” CHORTLE.CO.UK

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

“Bill Bailey watch out, there’s a new kid on the block!” ONE4REVIEW.COM

 

**JENNY COLLIER**

Jenny moved from the Welsh mountains to the Big Smoke and embarked upon a career in stand up comedy. Highlight: Appearing on a BBC Radio Wales panel show with Jo Brand. Low point: After a gig, an audience member saying 'You should be a stripper' (Both secretly highlights).

She has written for BBC Radio 4's The News QuizHuffington Post and Glamour Magazine and has traveled (parts of) the world with her comedy. She has performed in Hong Kong, Philippines, Singapore, Switzerland and Australia where she won the Percy Award for most tickets sold in 'The Imaginarium', (over 1900 tickets) during the Adelaide Fringe. 

Jenny has stormed the Edniburgh Fringe since her debut in 2016 with sold out shows and has won multiple awards for her comedy (13 to be exact, I mean multiple didn't do it justice right!?) - her career is going from strength to strength and she's guaranteed to have you rolling around with laughter.

Adam’s three radio series, “The Problem With Adam Bloom” have been highly rated on Radio 4.

"A light-speed wit, focussed over years at the pinnacle of stand-up"
