Jongleurs Comedy Club

Friday 23 June 2017

MC Windsor is a first class compere and stand-up who has combined years of street-performance skills with a natural charm and warmth, along with an enviable ability to make people relax. By transferring his street experience of audience control and off-the-cuff humour, Windsor became a highly skilled and supremely professional comedy circuit compere almost overnight, with an extraordinary ability to warm up a show and keep it running at a high quality level. In addition, top quality material makes him a top-notch act.

A well-known face at Covent Garden and winner of 5 street performance awards, including Best Comedy Act, Windsor has developed into a hilarious compere, warm-up and comedian with a well-crafted and instinctive ability to involve and warm up any audience.

 

Black Country comic Sean Percival is an ex-welder from Dudley (“It’s a lovely place to come from but bloody horrible to go back to”) whose act is steeped in the traditions of the working mens clubs circuit, but bang up to date with its upfront attitude. Sean’s brand of comedy steers clear of the surreal and confronts realism in an explosively funny way.

A festival favourite, he has performed at the Edinburgh, Glastonbury and Reading Festivals, and as a well established headliner he performs at all major comedy clubs around the UK as well as being a regular host for the Jongleurs comedy clubs.

 

Winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, and Funny Women Comedy Award, Debra-Jane Appleby has appeared on the BBC's 28 Acts in 28 Minutes and on Comedy Central's The World Stands Up as well as regular appearances on BBC Radio 5 Live, and guesting on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour.

Debra performs up and down the country with her Northern no-nonsense take on the world, gaining accolades wherever she goes.

 

 

Stand-up, presenter, actor and compere, Quincy hosts his own live chat show, is a TV warm-up (BBC's Blouse and Skirts) and has presented on BBC1 Xtra and Klymaxx FM. His live comedy work includes weekends at The Comedy Store, regular weekends at Jongleurs and Jongleurs On The Road, and comedy clubs up and down the country and abroad, headlining and compering. He also tours in large-scale venues all over the UK and as a stand-up and in sketch shows including United Colours of Comedy at the Hackney Empire and Big Sister at The Oval Theatre, The Hackney Empire and Stratford East Theatre. He has performed in large-scale venues around the country with John Simmit and Jocelyn Gee and is currently working on a sitcom.
