"Wonderfully inventive and intelligent" - Evening Standard
Act 2: Mike Gunn
Mike Gunn's history is as interesting and entertaining as his comedy. A misspent youth and a series of grim jobs cultivated his cynical outlook on life. A self-confessed pessimist, his lugubrious comedy has been described as 'drier than a dead man's bones'.
Early in his career Mike was supporting the likes of Jo Brand and Alan Davies. He now headlines at all the top comedy venues in the UK and is rapidly reaching cult status on the circuit as well as performing internationally. His television appearances include: The Gas (CH4), The Comedy Store (LWT), Live At Jongleurs (CH5), Al Murray's sit-com Time Gentlemen Please and Harry Hill's TV Burp.
"Mike Gunn will make you die laughing" - The Guardian
