Tanyalee Davis - "Little Do They Know"
 

 

 

Ever wonder what it must be like for a little person?

From the moment 3'6" Canadian Tanyalee Davis was born people have under-estimated her. Kids were cruel, her mother was crazy, yet she has the gift to make people laugh.

Tanyalee will take the audience on a journey of cruelty, embarrassment, independence, courage and triumph. She may be small in size but her personality and spirit is 10 feet high.  Don’t assume anything cuz little do you know!

In Nov 1999, Tanyalee placed 2nd in the Seattle Comedy Competition - where she was the first woman in 10 years to make it into the finals.  In April 2001, Tanyalee headlined her own show at the prestigious Melbourne Comedy Festival obtaining great reviews.  In August 2003, Tanyalee was part of the “US Comedy Invasion” show, performing at the Edinburgh festival.  In 2007 she took hersolo one hour show "Little Do They Know! " back to the fringe and won 4star reviews for it.

So don't miss it in Newcastle !!

Paul Tonkinson "Unzips The Bag"

& Markus Birdman "Son of a Preacher Man"

Double Bill show.

 

 

Paul Tonkinson - Unzips The Bag

A show about being on the road. Stand-up Paul Tonkinson, a 38 year old married man with three children, two dogs and two cats tells it like he thinks it is.

 

In Unzips the Bag, he celebrates the work and family ethic of gangster-rapper Snoop Dogg, muses on the necessity of surrender and shares the futile horror of being heckled on the radio.

 

Feel the energy. Witness the cheek of it. But why unzip? And what's in the bag?

 

"Brilliant" - Independent

"Cheeky and charismatic" - Mirror

"A Yorkshire man, who combines the rubberiest of funny faces since Les Dawson with tender recollections of a northern boyhood" - Evening Standard

Time Out Stand-up Comic of the Year

 

 

Markus Birdman - "Son of a Preacher Man"

      

God sacrificed his own son, but a child is for life, not just for Christmas!

This show is about Markus' relationship with his father, who’s a vicar. It’s about his relationship with his daughter, who’s two. It’s about his relationship with God, who’s never there. It’s about an hour.

 

“Birdman is the all-round package; witty, controversial, hip, topical and silly. A master of timing and physical comedy, he made me laugh so hard it hurt.” BBC

"Wonderful, extremely versatile." - The Scotsman 

"The crowd fell for his dry wit in a big way" - The Observer

"Uniquely talented" - The Evening Standard
