He was, of course, for many years the musical heart and comedy foil with 'Tramp & Swank', the UK's top comedy duo.

Ceri-Dupree-opt.jpg

Ceri Dupree
Ceri has been delighting audiences worldwide for almost 25 years; his unique talents have taken him through musical theatre, pantomime, summer season, television and cabaret. There isn’t an audience (Age or Type!!!) that he hasn’t played to.

He has performed at various major and esteemed venues throughout England, Ireland, Scotland and his birthplace Wales, with numerous appearances at hotels such as The Savoy, The Dorchester, The Churchill, The Landmark and Claridges.
International work has included appearances in Greece, France, Holland, Spain, Germany South Africa and the Seychelles.

On Television, Ceri has wowed the audiences with his four-part television show for ITV1 called “Ceri Dupree Unfrocked”. He has also appeared on numerous chat shows, light entertainment shows as well as hundreds of radio shows and press interviews.

Over the years Ceri has impersonated almost every major female star one can think of, from Marilyn Monroe to Madonna, Shirley Bassey to Barbara Cartland, Tina Turner to the UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher!!! He has also sent up Cruella De Ville, Snow White, the Wicked Queen, and Belle (from Beauty and the Beast) during his "Dupree's Disney Diva's". Variety is certainly not dead - we also have Her Majesty The Queen of England, and Jordan. And his newest addition in 2008, Amy Winehouse!

Ceri Dupree is certainly more than a comic in a frock his singing, dancing, acting, impersonation and stand up comedy, display a talent that blasts the notion of “Dressing up in drag” clean off the stage. His shows are elegant, professional and extremely funny, as reviewer once said… "The frocks are fabulous, the wigs wonderful, tThe voice versatility itself, Ceri Dupree illuminates people rather than merely impersonating women, walking a fine line between character and caricature, never being anything less than hugely funny with sharp wit, human perception and high energy!!!"

Future plans include a play about the late great Bette Davis, and a show based on the life of the legendary Danny La Rue (entitled "Don't Miss La Rue"). Plans to open his own Cabaret/Restaurant, called "Dupree's" are well underway, and he has future ambitions to work in Las Vegas and to play the lead in the musical La Cage Aux Folles.

Charlie Hale
Kind permission Roger Davies
"Hale makes an impression" THE STAGE "Charlie Hale made one of the most bizarre starts to an act I've ever seen, arriving in a dummy mask, He had the full measure of his audience and soon had them eating out of his hand....In addition to being a good gag teller he's got a fair old line in impressions - Nelson Mandela, Chris Eubank, Mike Tyson and that was barely half of it. The audience loved him"

"A Cavalcade of Comics" THE STAGE "working his act from a large Punch & Judy type screen on stage, this talented and very imaginative entertainer brings a new and hilarious comedy idea in presentation. Following a good line in patter, he continued with tremendously funny send up impressions highlighted by an unbelievable interview - Brian Walden meets Bernard Manning! He ended his act with a series of masks and puppets over the top of the screen, all complete with highly comical storylines which had us falling about with laughter".

Since gaining the coveted "Liverpool Comedian of the Year" award in 1990, Charlie has gone from strength to strength,working the length and breadth of the country,including visits to Northern Ireland, Germany,and Spain. His qualities as a stand up comic were showcased in 1992 when Granada TV brought 'The Comedians' back, but his real talents lie in his comedy impressions of politicians, soap stars, pop stars and sportsmen, in particular his superb send up of Chris Eubank, equalled only by Chris himself! Charlie's sheer brilliance has lead to various. TV shows for 1995 including his own ½ hour show on Sky One (15 July 1995)
Charlie's act has already taken the cabaret world by storm and coupled with his own sporting background ( He is an ex boxer and pro footballer,) he has proved a huge success on the After Dinner market. Charlie's flexibility allows him to entertain at the smallest children's party right up to any type of adult audience, and is also available for any acting work that should come along.
Charlie's appeared on five tours with one of the greatest middleweight boxers ever, Marvellous Marvin Hagler. When Iron Mike Tyson fought in England, Charlie appeared on sky sports at the ring side doing impresssions of Iron Mike, Chris Eubank, and Frank Bruno.
Charlie entertains guests at Manchester City on Match day's, as part of their co-operate entertainment package.
Some of the names Charlie has worked with on TV are Beverly Knight, Shola Alma, Ronald Gift,(fine young Cannibals) Heather Small, (M People)Mica Paris, Grace Jones, Robbie Williams on Hanger 17.

Charlie was regular comic on the BBC2 programme A-Force and he wrote one episode of the regular topical feature called "Blouse And skirt".
Listeners to Wire FM 107.2 radio can hear Charlie giving his impressions of Coronation Street, and Beckham in Spain. He also takes part in regular wind up sessions with the popular Century North East radio programmme,"Goffy In The Morning” which his character Nelson Mandela in the North East has become a cult figure.
On the after dinner circuit Charlie works along side big state side personalities as well as household British names. The likes of former world heavyweight champions, Ken Norton, Ernie Shavers, Tim Witherspool, Joe Frazier, Brazilian world cup star Jairzhino, Australian cricketer Dennis Lilly.
The entertainment business has given Charlie an opportunity to work along side his boyhood hero's, such as George Best, Mike Summerbe. Through to some of his hero's of today. Barry McGuigan, and Nigel Benn,and Ricky Hatton.
In conclusion Charlie is always in demand, as he is a clean comedian who does not swear and is the same whether he is entertaining a family audience or five hundred men at a sporting dinner.

Christine Coles

For the past ten years, Christine has certainly earned her reputation as one of the North's most popular, and loved comediennes.

Starting out in her native South Yorkshire, Christine's career began in the Working Men's Clubs; venues that don't like to give male comedians a chance, let alone females.

From this, she learnt to handle any type of audience, always giving back more than she took.

Nowadays, Christine is as at home working in the After Dinner environment as she is treading the boards of the clubs from the Midlands to the North East.

Ladies evenings are a particular favourite, with her anti male humour appreciated by her many female fans.

Christine still works regularly for Pontins during the summer, alongside the clubs and company functions.


Chubby Spencer

The second most outrageous comedian in the world.
He’s crude! He’s rude! He’s shocking! He’s hilarious! He’s Chubby Spencer – the UK’s number one tribute to the most outrageous comedian in the world.

Like Chubby Brown? You’ll love Chubby Spencer.

BEWARE: Foul language! Blue humour! Side-splitting jokes!

Chubby Spencer is the foul alter ego of the delightfully mild-mannered Ollie Spencer – one of the top comedians on the UK circuit.

A stalwart of TV programmes such as New Faces, Tiswas, the Comedians and Seaside Special, Ollie is also a familiar and much-loved face at clubs and holiday resorts across Europe.

Much in demand on the after dinner circuit, his comic talents have also taken him to many of the world’s most exotic destinations as an entertainer on board the world’s most luxurious cruise liners.

A true professional, Ollie is extremely likeable and highly amenable – in fact his real personality is completely at odds with the foul-mouthed Chubby!

Kind permission Roger Davies
Being a third generation comedian, (his father is Jimmy Marshall and his Grandfather was the famed Scots comedian Jock Duncan), Gary has been surrounded by comedy for as long as he can remember. As a young man he spent many hours watching many of the great comedians working, so it was a natural progression for him to enter the hard world of making people laugh.

Gary decided to enter the business the way of many now famous entertainers, and became a Butlins Redcoat, which of course is one of the best groundings for learning to "work and feel an audience".

From these beginnings Gary has progressed to Summer Shows, Pantomime, Cabaret and now After Dinner Comedy.

Gary has also worked many Cabaret and Working Mens Clubs along with Summer Shows in Mablethorpe, Skegness and Bridlington.

A good, young, stand-up patter comedian, with the added ability of having a good singing voice which he has put to good use in the many production shows he has been part of, Gary has a great future ahead for he has just recorded for the new series of Sky TV's "Stand & Deliver", to screened August 2nd 1996.

Gary made an appearance on Jonathan Ross's "Big Big Talent Show". Whilst Gary was beaten into 1st place, by a "pregnant singer", he did make a big impact which has resulted in many more engagements.

Rob & Darren are two brothers who have built up quite a reputation in the world of show business. They virtually grew up in theatres and coming from a comedy background it was inevitable that the lads would inherit the same comedy humour.

The lads haven’t always worked together; Darren was bitten by the music bug and travelled the World with his own band – Hitchcock Railway and The Kid – whilst Rob concentrated on his solo vocal/comedy show up and down the Country.

The lads got together one night in 2000 at a charity event at The Bistro French in Preston, UK.

Since that day HARPER have gone from strength to strength. After appearing at the Stage Showcall Showcase, the Stage newspaper wrote that the lads were ‘One of the highlights of the evening’.

The boys were next asked to perform at the legendary North Pier Theatre in Blackpool with Joe Longthorne and then, with their reputation growing and growing they toured with Joe and supported one of Britain’s funny men, Freddie Starr. They also appeared on tour with their friend Johnny Casson.

Harper Brothers’ diary is now getting fuller and fuller, regularly working for Pontins, Warners, Butlins, Park Resorts and Thompson Gold. They have even presented a TV Pilot show called Bands In Transit. They have worked many times for P & O on their ships, The Oreana, Ociana, Aurora, The Arcadia, as well as many overseas engagements.

Herbie James
Kind permission Roger Davies
Herbie, who originally hails from Northampton, spent many of his early showbiz years as a Pontins Bluecoat - progressing to Entertainments Manager.
Upon leaving Pontins in the 1970's he set out on a solo career as a vocalist who could introduce a little comedy to his act. This led him to play most of the major cabaret venues, of which there were plenty, and the usual club circuits in Scotland, North East of England, Midlands, South Yorkshire etc.
Since those early days Herbie has played many summer seasons including major shows in Blackpool and Newquay. Herbie has also played several seasons in Malta and Spain, and has also worked for leading cruise lines.
Herbie, who has an amazing resemblance to the late "Don Estelle" (BBC's Ain't Half Hot), found over the years that his vocal talents took a back seat to make way for the comedy, some unusual impressions and in particular his ability to speak in many dialects. This latter skill led to several television roles the most notable being BBC TV's "Making Out".
An ideal comedy entertainer for mixed cabaret functions or all male dinners, where a clean comic is required. Herbie is not a stag comedian nor does he resort to the use of language to gain laughs, relying purely on his material and his skill in delivery.
Available for After Dinners, Cabaret, Theatre etc.

Mick has also toured and appeared with Freddie Starr, The Stranglers, Bobby Davro & Tony Handley


Mick Walker
Courtesy Jake Elcock
Mick is a fascinating character with a wealth of show business experience. In the 60’s he worked in various bands such as The Redcaps playing bass and gradually introducing his own brand of stand-up comedy into the shows.

In 1966 Mick managed Birmingham’s famous “Rum Runner Club” where he produced and presented shows with such artists as Tom Jones, The Everly Brothers, Chuck Berry and Lulu to name but a few.

In 1969 Mick formed his own Comedy Jazz Trio doing a 10-month season at the Pigalle Club in London’s Piccadilly and then touring the British Cabaret Circuit. During this time, due to is long standing interest and participation in Amateur Boxing, Mick started to fit in film and T.V. stunt work whenever possible.

After finishing a cabaret season on the Cruise Liner QEll, which sailed from New York to the Caribbean, the trio returned to Britain where upon Mick suffered serious injuries falling from a cliff in the North of England, and the act broke up. After six months in the hospital Mick went into the rock band management and production industry in England and Europe and eventually South America, where he spent 2 years based in Bogotá Columbia. He returned to England in 1976 and began working for John Reid Enterprises as personal bodyguard for Elton John, Freddie Mercury and Kiki Dee. Mick moved to Spain’s Costa Del Sol in 1982 as head of entertainments for the Pontinental Holiday Circuit. Two years later Mick moved back to England working as a stand-up comedian and doing various. T.V shows for the BBC with Tom O’ Connor doing comedy character parts, and working the cabaret circuit until 1987 when he returned to Spain and successfully managed various hotels and clubs. Mick is now back in Britain and is in great demand on the corporate/after dinner circuit specialising in sporting dinners.

Mike Doyle
International TV comedy star

Mike Kelly
Kind permission Roger Davies
Mike must be one of the only (few) stand up comedians with letters after his name (ACII ACIB.) after he qualified at an early age as an Insurance Broker and dealt with accounts for many large industrial organisations.
Tiring of paperwork ( in the days before VAT) and still young, Mike decided to send his wife out to work and to start from scratch as a stand up comedian in the Northern Clubs.
He has worked most of the top cabaret venues for example Batley Variety Club, Wakefield Theatre Club etc. and won numerous clubland awards with fast ad libs being his forte. Several successful Summer Seasons in popular resorts like Blackpool and Newquay have added to his reputation, as have his regular work for Butlins, Pontins and several large Breweries, as well as the hundreds of companies that have used his services for various corporate functions.
Recently he has become much sought after nationwide for his After Dinner comedy act, whilst at the same time playing many feature roles in various television shows.

Mike Lancaster
Mike is a family friendly comedian that can be a little on the naughty side when required, although he does work best with an adult audience. He is your more traditional comedian with a quick repartee and thrives on interaction with his audience. His style is a mixture of observational comedy with very funny and classic one liners. As the late Bob Monkhouse did, Mike can turn his hand to all kinds of subjects and make you see the funny side of them.

Oliver
Sensational visual comedy star from the North East

Ollie Spencer
The new century has been a great time for Ollie as he has won not just one but three comedy awards adding to his long list of achievements in the world of comedy.

Ollie has built a solid reputation as a reliable funny man who always gives 100%.

His off stage manner and demeanour makes him great company in a social situation.

His TV credits include 7 consecutive appearances on Granada TV’s original “The Comedians”, Scottish TV’s “Patter Merchants”, South West TV’s “15/40 Show.”

With Nick Owen (Ollie was asked back 3 times – something of a record!).

In his rock ‘N’ roll days Ollie was the drummer with cult band The Idle Race that also featured Jeff Lynne of ELO fame.

At this time Ollie was known as Roger Spencer and Ollie was a nickname that has stayed with him. He has remained firm friends with Jeff Lynne

In his career Ollie has done so many varied things including Rock ‘N’ Roll bands working with many major bands i.e. The Beatles, The Who, Fleetwood Mac, Moody Blues and of course ELO (which in the early days also featured Roy Wood) etc. In 1980 Ollie left the music scene and his solo career took him into T.V. working as a “warm-up man” on Tiswas & The Premiership, The Eamon Holmes Sports Programme and on shows featuring Jimmy Cricket, Gary Wilmot, etc.

Ollie has become a very popular after dinner comedian, with his easy delivery of both observational and topical material. His scrapbooks are full of many memories of some of his fellow speakers from Jonah Loma to Jack Charlton, Best to Law, Bayfield to Cowdrey, Willy John McBride to The Honourable Dennis Howell plus many, many more.

Ollie is a great asset to any occasion and looks forward to helping to make your function a memorable one.

He started his career in show business as a bass guitarist and lead singer with the pop group The Bystanders, who had hits including '98.6' in the 1960s on the Pye label. Fellow members were Micky Jones (see link), Clive John, Ray Williams, Jeff Jones and vocalist Gerry Braden - guess who that was!!!

In the 1970s he formed the original comedy band Tomfoolery, which became one of the UK's most successful comedy show bands, often topping the bill at Blackpool South Pier.

1980 saw the launch of his solo career, soon winning the Club Land Comedian of the Year award, performing alongside Shirley Bassey and Tom Jones.

Paddy Greene
Kind permission Roger Davies
Known as the Comics' comic, this zany Irishman is overflowing with a talent for making people laugh. Like the late Tommy Cooper, a naturally funny man.
Paddy's act is full of vitality, he uses so much energy that he is usually physically drained at the end of a performance, and uses every available inch of space, and anything to hand as a prop.
Much of his material is fresh and topical, even old stories take on a complete new angle with Paddy's unique approach. In fact Paddy is so imaginative that you will probably never see him perform the same act twice!
He is a great favourite with Jim Davidson, who never misses an opportunity to use Paddy on his special shows. After appearing on Summertime Special, in 1989, the LWT staff immediately booked him back for their Christmas party, and then again for the year following. A high accolade indeed.
After many years of persuasion, Paddy finally presented his talent at a Sportsman's Dinner - the result was a standing ovation - PADDY GREENE had exploded onto the After Dinner Circuit.
Many more bookings followed, along with more ovations, and 1993 saw Paddy establish himself as one of the most sought after comedy speakers.1994 saw Paddy expand his following through the many requests to appear in the South of England where demand exceeds the available dates.

The group eventually split up and in 1981 Roger formed a comedy duo with lead man called Hobson & Choice.

A big hit on the night was comedian Spence Martin, whose quirky throwaway style was hugely popular with the audience.

This Londoner, now resident in the Valleys, provides just the right kind of ‘on the edge’ comedy that is best appreciated in the broader confines of club land.

However, the best compliment I can pay to Martin is that he did not remind me of anyone else, which has to be good if you involved in this field.

Spence also presents a different show suitable for cruises.

In addition to his comedy show, Spence is an accomplished vocalist who can add guitar to his repertoire.

Sue Sweeny
FUNNYGIRL Sue Sweeney entertains thousands of listeners to her radio show on BBC Radio Newcastle every Saturday morning.

The Durham City lass is no stranger to comedy, with a clubland career stretching back to the 1970s.

She started her career as a singer, influenced by her granddad John Simpson, who was concert chairman at Brandon Workingmen’s Club.

Sue recalls: "My grandad used to stand me on a stool in the house in Durham and hand me a skipping rope. That was my first microphone."

Sue showed promise and was put on the books of Olive Daunt, a singing coach and drama teacher.

She joined a band of prison officers, known as Long Stretch, singing 50s-type band songs, in the clubs and at dinner dances.

At 16 she joined a pop band, singing Abba tunes, and later teamed up with Lynne Smith to form one of the first female double-acts in the North East, Cobweb.

It was after the birth of one of her daughters, Rachel, on January 4, 1986, that Sue decided to go it alone on stage.

She says: "The comedy came into it when I was pregnant. It was after Rachel was born that I decided to go full-time as a solo entertainer.

"I wanted to be self-contained and I wanted to be my own boss."

She adds: "The clubs have always been a very male-dominated profession, but I never had any trouble.

"I got a lot of encouragement from one of club land’s biggest names, Walter Gee, who should really have been a big star.

"For me turning to comedy was a natural progression from being a singer."

Sue travelled the world with her comedy act and has been named North East comedy artiste of the year more than once.

She has worked in television drama and comedy and her only regret is that she never landed a part in one of the TV soaps.

It was doing a live interview for radio that sparked her interest in taking to the airwaves.

Sue, a mother-of-three, now manages to juggle three jobs – a club entertainer, a radio presenter and a sales executive with Vic Young’s in South Shields.

She says: "I wear different hats. I feel blessed that I have been able to do different jobs, all of which I enjoy.

Zak Stevens
Kind permission Roger Davies
Think daft, zany comedy, and think Zak Stevens. Freddie Starr, but for a lot less money!
Whatever the situation, Zak never fails to impress; in cabaret, the full show will suit most adult audiences, yet with only a trace of innuendo. For after dinner functions, his stand up routine will have you in stitches.

A keen golfer (he plays off 12), Zak has been a massive hit on the celebrity golf tour, and is also a member of the Comedians’ Golfing Society. He is equally at home in both all male and mixed environments.

Zak entered showbusiness as a member of the band “The Internationals,” and, following a stint with “Fashion Fever”, he progressed into comedy, forming the duo “Twins.” After a number of very successful years touring Europe and making a name for themselves over here, he finally made the decision to go solo. Nowadays, Zak tours the length of the country and has twice won the coveted “Midlands Comedy Entertainer of The Year” trophy.


A fully professional artiste, Zak will always arrive on time, time carries the latest in sound systems, and is very easy to get along with. He has been known to remain on stage for over 1½hours, but then he was determined to get one laugh that evening…….
More recently, he has secured another summer season working on the Butlins circuit, and has returned from Costa Del Sol in Spain, with an open invite to go back whenever he wants. He is also a regular on the Cruise Circuit.

Recent Quotes

“Zak is a very very good comedian”

“...but our comic for the night Zak Stevens brought the house down. A truly great comic at his best. Thanks Zak.”

“Zak Stevens. A very funny guy who had the members in the palm of his hand from start to finish. Here is a guy who outs a lot of effort into his act to keep you in stitches. Off stage he is one of the nicest people you could hope to meet. Best of luck, mate.”

“A giant frame, and a monster of a comedian from sunny Sheffield, who bounded on stage and scored big belly laughs with the Carcroft crowd. Some of the usual gags cropped up, yet after his initial warming up of the audience, his delivery went into supersonic mode. He worked the audience up into a frenzy of hysterics as his act drew to a close. Remember the name, Zak Stevens.”
