Cally is a natural storyteller full of intelligent, distinctive and punchline-rich material and one of the UK’s most sought-after acts for both comedy and corporate bookings.
It was while working for Comedy Central, on the road with the late, great Joan Rivers, that Cally was nudged into the sphere of performance. Acting as an unofficial business event warm-up for Ms. Rivers, it was she (then 81) who told Cally she had what it took to be a stand-up; and so, as a 45 year old single parent, Cally first took to the stage.
She has since become one of the UK’s most-booked professional comedians, with her unflinching, acerbic and intelligent brand of comedy. Cally’s TV and radio appearances include being a regular panellist on BBC’s QI as well as The Apprentice You’re Fired, Radio 4’s Museum of Curiosity, The Unbelievable Truth and Saturday Live. She is a frequent guest and commentator on BBC 5 Live, BBC Radio London and Times Radio.
‘Cally is a comedy queen – fiery, intelligent and totally original’ Sara Pascoe, Comedian
‘Exciting and hilarious talent…she’s got it’ Time Out
‘Properly funny. A real find’ Sandi Toksvig
Tony is a rapidfire gag merchant with an arsenal full of one-liners, for laughs-per-minute he’s a tough act to beat!
His quick wit has made him a sought after act and compere by comedy clubs and promoters across the UK and even for gigs worldwide. Something of a Twitter sensation, Tony’s jokes turn up in all sorts of places, from greetings cards to The Times newspaper, even if you’ve never heard of him there’s a good chance that you’ll have laughed at one of his gags.
