Rob Hughes: A quirky, slightly surreal comic who waxes lyrical on subjects as diverse as the bitter lives of the unpublished Mr.Men and Robert Mugabes Facebook page, Rob is respected as a writer of ‘sublime’ material. He mixes truth with fiction in a comedy cocktail that’ll get your head in a spin as he strikes a perfect balance between beautifully crafted puns, observational comedy and anecdotes so absurd you’ll want them to be true.
Tom Deacon, the 2007 winner of Chortle’s Student Comedian Award and finalist in the Amused Moose New Act Competition has burst onto the comedy scene drawing all eyes his way with his undeniable stage presence and slick timing.
In November, Tom was announced as the host of his own new Radio One Show starting in January 2013. The show will broadcast every Wednesday night at 9pm and will be an hour of comedy, music and chat with Tom’s comedian friends.
