ANDY ASKINS is a diminutive figure who exudes an air of vulnerability as he steps up to the microphone armed with a guitar and a cheeky grin. It’s an overwhelmingly misleading demeanour which serves to heighten the impact of the killer lines that he delivers.

Andy has an expertly crafted routine littered with an eclectic mix of offbeat original comic songs and parodies. A talented musician with a captivating voice, popular songs have been re-written and given a perverse twist to tremendous comic effect. With a wickedly dry sense of humour, Andy’s darker material is sweetened by his innocent and impish demeanour which never fails to leave audiences in the palm of his hand. With impeccable timing, the inventive and quirky songs are peppered with inspired patter – the material is as strong as the songs and delivered in an inimitable modest and self-deprecating style.

On TV screens, Andy was recently invited to appear on The John Bishop Show, performing a storming set at the Hackney Empire, alongside a stellar line-up from the worlds of comedy and music.

“Brilliant and unique”
John Bishop

“Dark humour with faultless timing.”
The Stage

“Packs a wry, cheeky wit. There is, most definitely, something warmly alluring about him. His winning persona goes a long way.”

Canadian SEAN COLLINS has 25 years’ experience in stand up comedy, with initial success leading to ‘Best Male Stand Up’ nominations at the Canadian Comedy Awards, a Just For Laughs Gala set at Montreal and his own hour long special on Canadian television.

Since residing in the UK, Sean quickly established himself as a strong performer. His appearance on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow on BBC 1 proved a portentous gig for Sean, affording him the opportunity to perform at The Real Variety Showcase for Jeremy Lee Associates, the UK’s biggest specialist agency for after dinner speakers, awards hosts and cabaret for corporate, industry and public sector events.

“A pleasure to indulge”

“He has perfected the art of entertaining digression without ever losing a thread … first class”
