"Hilarious, self deprecating and lovable... A fantastic storyteller." - Three Weeks
Paul Tonkinson is one of the funniest and busiest comedians on the comedy circuit. When he’s not appearing on TV, he regularly performs to huge crowds not just in the UK but also Spain, Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai. Tonkinson’s irresistible banter has made him a forces favourite. He regularly entertains the troops in Afghanistan, Falklands, Barcelona, Kosovo, Malta, Egypt, Kuwait and most recently Iraq. Paul was the first comic to perform in Iraq after the war officially ended. There were 2,500 troops in the middle of the desert, 45 degrees heat, a sandstorm, tanks on either side of the stage, Tonks, four dances and a Bee Gees tribute band! This experience spurred him to write a brand new hilarious one man show, 'War Stories’ which he performed at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival where The Daily Mail raved "Just see this show. It’s hilarious - if you don’t die laughing". Exclusive representation by Comedy Store Management www.comedystoremanagement.co.uk

Carey Marx has been a circuit favourite for years, mixing his own blend of dark humour with his mischievous and gleeful delivery. His willful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places. This hilarious mix of edgy topics and playful gagsmithery can be seen at all the top clubs across the country with Marx regularly playing Jongleurs, Komedia and The Comedy Store and annually compering Reading, Leeds and Glastonbury Festivals.
Carey has taken shows to numerous Edinburgh Festival Fringes. His most successful festival being 2013, in which he took his new show 'Intensive Carey'. Carey received an incredible eight 4 and 5 star reviews for his show concerning his ill health over the last year.
Alongside his stand up, Carey has recorded a popular weekly topical podcast with comedian Barry Castagnola, called "The Proper Gander".
"This is a brilliant, deeply personal performance... A brush with death really shouldn’t be this funny." - The Scotsman
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. He was recently interviewed for the British Comedy Awards Magazine, and will be appearing in Edinburgh in 2006, performing in the ever-popular 'AAA' at the Pleasance Courtyard.
