His material is strong and distinctive, drawn from life experience and random happening
ROGER MONKHOUSE https://thecomedystore.co.uk/london/comedian/roger-monkhouse/
Roger Monkhouse is one of the most original and distinctive acts on the comedy scene. A consummate stand-up who employs a deadly combination of charm and menace to exert a masterful control over any audience. A highly original and quirky performer, Roger's trademark stage-prowling style and curious, inimitable manner have established him as one of the hottest names on the comedy circuit.
Distinguished as a comic by his eloquence and keen eye for a fine phrase, Roger's easy observational style is spiked by the signal flares of an accomplished gag writer. A supremely confident compere and seasoned corporate host, Roger is happy to improvise freely with a crowd and is at great ease bantering with an audience, but has no shortage of first class observational material in his armoury.
Recent television credits include 'The Comedy Store' and ‘The World Stands Up’, (both Paramount), ‘My God I’m My Dad’ (Bravo) and ‘Street Cred Sudoku’ (UKG2). He is one of the regular writers on Channel 4’s hugely popular comedy panel show ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’ - responsible for scripting up-to-the minute topical gags every week for the show which features Jimmy Carr alongside team captains Dave Spikey and Sean Lock. On the airwaves, he was recently a guest panellist on comedy panel show ‘Jest A Minute’ (BBC Radio Wales) as well as contributing to review show ‘Serious About Comedy’ (BBC7).
Lindsey Santoro hails from Birmingham (but don't hold that against her). She recounts tales of her misadventures in life, all in her trademark down to earth, side-splitting style. Lindsey has been active on the Midlands comedy circuit since 2014 and she made the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2016.
