Rob Mulholland:
"A quirky but confident performer...strong comic storytelling...a routine as tight as his skinny jeans" Chortle
"Very, very tall and equally as talented" TimeOut
"Great delivery and a confident swagger...A riot" Lancashire Evening Telegraph

"Perfect delivery...had the audience bursting into spontaneous applause" York Press

"He's going to be huge" Ten Feet Tall Comedy
“Very stable, I’d happily sign a will on him” Johnny Vegas

Rob Mulholland is a lanky, laconic Yorkshireman with an eye for the unusual, twisting the mundane into something strange and hilarious. In his short time on the circuit he has exploded up the ranks, winning numerous competitions being crowned North East New Comedian of the Year 2015 and winning the prestigious Beat the Frog World Series with his mixture of offbeat observations and everday absurdism. Now to be found on the stages of the largest comedy clubs in the country and appeared at the Edinburgh Festival as one half of #BlurredMinds, now's the time to catch a rising star of the comedy scene.

Sam Gore:

"The jokes are as cruel as they are funny, i.e. very… a class act indeed" - Steve Bennett, Chortle

"Truly exceptional… confident, clever stuff" - GiggleBeats

"Wicked and dry and magnificently funny" - BSH Magazine

"Superbly crafted gags that showcase a vivid use of imagery and language... great wordplay, refreshing honesty and a wonderfully dark view of life" - GiggleBeats

A confident and original young act with a brilliant command of language, Sam Gore has been wowing crowds and rapidly climbing the comedy ladder since his debut in 2007. Having cemented his position as one of the best new performers on the circuit with no less than five New Act of the Year titles (including the Hilarity Bites title in 2008), he’s gone on to impress everywhere from weekend clubs to music festivals, biker rallies and theatres.

At the Edinburgh Festival in 2010 Sam appeared in the double-header show A Calculated Risk as part of the Free Festival. In 2011 he returned to the Fringe as part of the Amused Moose Laugh-Off showcase, having won his way through to the final of that competition as well.

Sam has appeared on TV in FHM Stand-Up Hero (ITV4) and The Tape Face Tapes (actor/writer, BBC3) and has been a writer on Russell Howard's Good News since 2010.
