If you want serious comedy David Tsonos is not your man. His comedy stems from being the youngest of five boys, babysitting his nephews and his cat.
He has appeared at the Vancouver Comedy Festival and can be heard on Satellite radio. Whether it's a Bar gig, a Comedy Club or a Corporate function David makes the laugh until they can laugh no more. (Well maybe a little more.)
David has toured Canada and the USA - and is now based in London. Recently he has also performed in Eastern Europe.
He has acted in commercials and TV shows and has also has found time to Write and Direct his own independent films.
"Very confident, knows his material totally and had the crowd roaring. Good face and voice for comedy, great timing".
"Amiable, laid back and funny"

Noel James' credits are too numerous to list in full so we asked him to write his own biography to give you an idea how this bizarre mans brain ticks.
"My name is Infact Noel James, although I never pronounce the Infact…"
These are the first words of Infact Noel James' act - an act which, dare I say, confounds even his closest psychopathic hangers-on.
For eight years, Noel has performed comedy throughout the UK. He does it for a living and has performed at all the major clubs and festivals. Glastonbury, Reading, Edinburgh to name but three.
Before entering showbiz old Noel tried his hand at teaching. Without much success, he taught English as a foreign language: he taught it as Welsh!
WELSH - Old English translation meaning 'Foreign'
The above definition gains significance when you perceive his lilting delivery. Not only does it have totally tropical taste and perfect timing but indeed it stems from his mouth which has its dark origins firmly rooted in that far-off land called Wales. As you will see, the rest of his body has no fixed abode but its amazing what a transplant operation can do.
But not for him the comedy of stereotyping - he finds it all too easy. Well, he is a Capricorn (near the Sagittarius end which makes him a Saggycorn)- His act is gag, gag, gag all the way - though some of it consists of non-baby-talk. Above all, his act is highly original; the guy who wrote it assured him of this.
Surreal, bizarre, absurd, intelligent, and yet, somehow strangely attractive. No, seriously he is a very accessible act who generally goes down well anywhere.
He's also done a bit of serious acting, and as for music! Well, what he does is throw in a bit of guitar playing and singing, of a sort, as well as a few prop gags. I'm telling you,to try her hand at stand-up comedy. “You’ll never forget his name.” The Independent
Self-styled 'housewife comedian' Mary Bourke may look sweet in her flowery tea-dress, but her humour pulls no punches.
Mary was born in Dublin during a cross fire hurricane. She lives in leafy Buckinghamshire with her comedian husband and her large collection of Betty Page memorabilia .Before she became a comic She was a burlesque dancer and choreographer in San Francisco. She has published numerous romantic novels under the pseudonymn Tara Sundrive.
”A great show that consists of nothing but jokes”. ”Bourke’s comedy is savage in intent and surgical in execution.” ”Mary goes in search of the original spirit of stand-up and reclaims it with style.”
"Bourke’s obvious skill is such that the audience are never less than utterly delighted. An accomplished and thoroughly enjoyable piece of work.”
Brian & Krystal
Grumpy old cockney BRIAN DAMAGE met KRYSSTAL his glamorous assistant, at THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL in 2000.
They teamed up immediately to record their own excellent CD Silly Songs and form a unique act which they have performed in places as diverse as JOHANNESBURG (South Africa), AUSTRALIA, SCOTLAND, IRELAND, SPAIN, GOZO, DENMARK and all over the UK.
Brian and Krystal have appeared five years running at THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL and also performed at international festivals such as GLASTONBURY, LONDON COMEDY FESTIVAL, ADELAIDE & MELBOURNE COMEDY FESTIVALS & WOODFORD FOLK FESTIVAL 2005.
Wherever they go their baggage goes with them, including several musical instruments (not always musical in their hands!) and many years of experience in the entertainment industry. Much of this baggage spills forth during their unconventional vaudeville style act, punctuated by occasional silly songs, the odd bit of Spanish dancing and loads of belly laughs.
Apart from regular live appearances Brian and Krystal are not averse to TV, radio or any other media performances. They write scripts and songs and have hosted corporate functions, private parties and are suitable for many types of comedy-based events!
"Legendary Brian Damage and top strangely straight-woman Krystal are a one-off cross-genre act but they have echoes of The Bonzos, the heyday of music hall and some rather seedy country and western club. Four stars I laughed like a drain"
