Stand-up is back! Join the On The Road Comedy Club for a brand-new show that will see a host of rotating comedians travelling around the country getting the nation laughing again in real life. No Zoom link required! Featuring a night of live stand-up from Brennan Reece, Mark Simmons, Eryn Tett and Tez Ilyas.
Brennan Reece is a bright young rising star who burst onto the comedy scene after winning English Comedian of the Year in 2015. The following year he was nominated for the prestigious Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for his sell- out debut show Everglow.
Brennan is becoming a regular on screens across the UK having appeared on Live at the Apollo (BBC), Comedy Central at the Comedy Store (Comedy Central), The Stand Up Sketch Show (ITV), Roast Battle (Comedy Central) and Life Lessons (BBC).
He has also featured in everything from popular TV shows like The Comedy Allstars (ABC), Skins (Channel 4) to feature films such as Soulboy, a film about the Northern Soul underground scene and was also a presenter on Top Gear Extra Gear (BBC).
Brennan has supported Jason Manford, Rob Brydon and Joe Lycett on tour. His 2017 solo tour Everlong was extended into 2018 due to a hugely popular sell out run. This bright young comic from Manchester is being tipped for the top!
DAVE’s Top 10 Joke of the Fringe 2019 (& 2017)
★★★★ ‘Absolutely hilarious’ – The Scotsman
★★★★ ‘A talented comic with an artisan’s grasp of joke writing’ – Chortle
‘Master of one-liners’ and DAVE’s Top Ten Jokes of The Edinburgh Fringe 2019, MARK SIMMONS, recently joined Dara O’Brian and Hugh Dennis on BBC2’s Mock The Week as a semi-regular on the show.
Mark has also appeared in other TV shows such as ITV’s Out There, BBC Radio 4 Extra Stands Up, a Channel 4 pilot starring alongside Bridget Christie, as well as BBC3’s One For The Road.
‘Unique in all the best ways…so fun to watch. She’s going to be massive’ – Adam Hess
Born and raised in Singapore, Eryn moved to the UK at 18 to pursue comedy. Since then she have lived and performed in New York, New Zealand and in the summer of 2018 she finally settled down on the London scene.
Over the last two years she has developed her own web series/comedy night (UBGE Comedy), made it to the finals of the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year, 2NorthDown New Act of the Year (runner up) and the Funny Women Stage Award competitions, as well as winning Cherry Comedy Break out Act of the Year 2020.
Described as “fast moving…and absurd” (Diva Magazine), Eryn’s stand up is made up of word play, short jokes, odd observations and surreal storytelling set to a charmingly uncomfortable rhythm. An alternative comedian who’s “weird but with at least one toe still in observational reality” (Chortle), she is developing her solo show titled ‘Eryn Tett Finds Her Audience’. Now living in Manchester during a pandemic, she is writing her first sitcom and continuing to produce her own series of sketches and comedy videos, which have earned her a place on the long-list and short list of the Funny Women Comedy Writing and Comedy Shorts Competitions 2020.
★★★★ ‘Radiantly entertaining’ – The Times
★★★★ ‘Blackburn’s Chris Rock’ – The Guardian

Join Tez as he uses his trademark silly, smart and subversive humour to celebrate all that we still have. Expect mega laughs, happy groans and cheeky provocations, as Tez guarantees a ‘vicked’ time.
