The Antics Joke Show Ft O&O

We’re back! Did you miss us? Up The Antics are kicking off 2017 with a bang - a block-buster comedy show jam-packed with excellent acts, starring Bristol sketch sensations O&O, stand up from West Midlands' Best Alternative Act in the Midlands nominee Dan Nicholas, and trained superhero and all-round funny guy, Stephen Durell, as well as some quick-witted improv games from us. 



A comedy duo whose unique repertoire is making a name for them with their friendly, witty and interactive style. The pair are already making great strides in the world of comedy and tour regularly up and down the country. 

“The funniest women in the world, O’Shea & O’Gaukroger are here. Lovely people, too.”

Starting stand up in 2011, Dan has brought his unique brand of left field and accessibly alternative comedy to comedy nights all over the country. Having made appearances at concept shows such as 'Comedy in the Dark', 'Hotel D' Comedie' and even guesting on Paul Foot's New Game Show, Dan’s plethora of stand-up experience makes him an excellent comedian.

A member of the brilliant Up The Antics, one of the stars of "Frack Off" the sitcom and a writer of the 5 star musical “Murder! The Musical” by BB Theatre, it’s clear that funny comes to him like an analogy to a comedy biography. Stephen has performed stand-up regularly with Bath Spa Comedy Society Idle Playthings, Up The Antics and in various performances around the country, and he sure has a story to tell you this time!
