An effortlessly charismatic performer in the mould of British comedy legends, Rob Deering's live performances combine razor-sharp wit, an astounding musical talent and a prankish sense of fun and have quickly established Rob among the big hitters on the UK stand up circuit. With three sell out Edinburgh shows and a growing catalogue of cult TV work (Movie Mistakes FIVE, Lesser Spotted Britain Channel 4, Totally Top Trumps Channel 4 and 99 Things to do Before You Die, FIVE) under his belt, Rob Deering is "A safe place to bet your comedy dollar." The Sunday Times Rob is joined by comedian, writer and actress Francesca Martinez, who has performed her challenging, inspirational and incredibly funny stand up routines at venues all over the world. Her solo-show I’mperfect was critics’ choice when it premiered at the 2002 Edinburgh Festival and has since enjoyed sell out success at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and on an extensive tour of the UK. "She is intelligent, insightful - almost philosophical at times - centered, immensely likable and charmingly dangerous." Scotsman
