Local Stockport lad, now based in Manchester, Mike Newall is a charming and laid-back comedian with well-crafted jokes and a wonderful dry delivery. This is observational comedy at its best with razor sharp timing combined with a keen sense of dark sarcasm. He most recently appeared on Britain’s Got Talent where he impressed the judges so much that Simon Cowell said..it was like an Oasis concert where the music ran out and Liam decides to tell a few jokes!
"Storytelling comes easy and the laughs are sharp...off-beat surreal and clever observations" The Edinburgh Reporter
"Perfectly crafted … Pin sharp, his control is deft and his hair is immaculate." The Scotsman
"Well-crafted jokes, great call-backs and a wonderfully dry delivery." Three Weeks

A semi finalist in the 2020 Max Turner Prize, her anecdotal and observational-style comedy explores the usual realms of sex and dating as well as the slightly less usual realms of motorway services, astrology and politically-minded pets.A brilliant new breakthrough act and you can say you saw her here first!
