debut - rob deering, very best in stand up comedy

Two top comedy acts will make their Nantwich debuts as The Very Best In Stand Up returns to Nantwich Civic Hall on May 5.

Irish funnyman Chris Kent is first up for his debut after making waves on the English circuit since relocating from his native Cork.

Chris gave up the day job as an electrician to pursue comedy.

He emerged onto the Irish comedy scene in 2009 and gained a large following.

His compelling storytelling went on to win the Comedy Smack Down Award at the Galway Comedy Festival in 2010.

In 2015, Chris made his UK TV debut on Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central.

The next act who is tipped for a big 2017 is Tudur Owen.

Tudur has written numerous Welsh language comedy scripts for TV, radio and theatre and has been part of many comedy writing teams for satirical shows.

His spoof Royal Wedding documentary for S4C has been nominated for a Royal Television Society Award, and for awards at the Celtic Media Festival.

Final act received a rapturous reception the last time he visited Nantwich.

Rob Deering (pictured) performs comedy with a guitar, a loop pedal and his voice to create impressive rock and pop soundscapes – and jokes, of course.

He is one of the most in-demand headliners on the UK circuit, has toured nationally and performed solo at the Edinburgh Fringe many times since starting out in 2000.

Rob has performed throughout the world, in shows from the Middle East to Melbourne, Shanghai to the South of France.

Compere for the evening is David Morgan.

One of the most exciting young acts on the circuit, David was recently nominated for ‘Best Compere’ at the prestigious Chortle Awards.

He has appeared escaping rabid dogs on ITV2’s ‘Release the Hounds’, and as team captain on ITV2’s ‘Safeword’ alongside Katherine Ryan and Rick Edwards.

And last year, he joined ITV2’s ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here Now!’ alongside Laura Whitmore and Joe Swash.

His love of the small screen and popular culture has seen him featured in the BBC’s online coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest and many talking-head shows.

David has performed solo shows at comedy festivals across the country including Edinburgh, Harrogate and Glasgow and a run at London’s prestigious Soho Theatre.

The show takes place on Friday May 5 and tickets are £10 from Nantwich Civic Hall direct or from

Doors open at 7.15pm and the show starts at 8.15pm.
