STEFANO PAOLINI

 

I'm a regular face on the national and international comedy circuit, where my mixture of stand-up comedy, characters, impressions and beatboxing have seen me perform across the U.K and also Abu Dhabi, Doha, Dubai, Singapore, Germany, Malta, France and Italy.

 

 I've also done some radio and television work.

 

I was a special guest on DEAD RINGERS (BBC Radio 4).

I voiced a variety of characters in the DREEM TEEM XMAS PANTO (BBC Radio 1 - two specials).

I've guested on LOOSE ENDS (BBC Radio 4), THE JO WHILEY SHOW (BBC Radio 1), LBC and BBC London.

I was in THE PROBLEM WITH ADAM BLOOM (BBC Radio 4), SPANKING NEW (BBC Radio 7) and THE MILK RUN for BBC Radio 1.

On television I was the voice of Tony Blair in DOUBLE TAKE (Channel 4) and Fabio Capello in HEADCASES (ITV1).

 

I'm also an author and in 2015 I published my debut book called, Missing Presumed Drowned: A true story of the internment of Italians resident in Britain during the Second World War.

 

ELEANOR TIERNAN

 

 

Eleanor Tiernan is a stand up comedian, writer and actress known for her uniquely oblique world view. She was recently a panelist on BBC Radio 4’s News Quiz and Where’s the F In News? as well as BBC NI on The Blame Game. Her stand up has featured on Comedy Central’s The Alternative Comedy Experience and led her to be chosen as support act for top stand up comics including Stewart Lee, Tig Notaro, Ardal O’Hanlon, Jason Manford, Jason Byrne and Reg D Hunter among others.

 

After starting her career in Ireland Eleanor quickly was invited to the Montreal Just For Laughs festival where she performed on the festival’s New Faces showcase show with such talents as Pete Holmes, Rory Scovel and Kumail Nanjani. She later became part of the political satire team that produced RTE’s successful Irish Pictorial Weekly. One of her court reporter sketches which went viral is often mistaken for a real news report. She plays Dolores in Bridget and Eamon which airs on RTE and UK Gold.

 

Eleanor has penned 8 Edinburgh Fringe festival shows. Her 2017 show “People Pleaser” put her on the Sunday Times list of Top Ten Female Stand Ups To Watch. In 2018 she performed in New Order, the Melbourne International Comedy festival showcase for UK and Irish acts. She returns to Melbourne in 2019 with her latest show “Success Without A Sextape”.

 

Eleanor writes Op-Ed pieces for the Irish Times in Ireland. She also played Mary in a critically acclaimed run of “Alone It Stands” in theaters across Ireland.

 

Her other credits include Monumental (BBC NI), The Craig Doyle Show (RTE), Headwreckers (Channel Four), Stand and Deliver (RTE), The Panel on RTE, The Craig Doyle Show (RTE), The Savage Eye (RTE), Republic of Telly (RTE) and Bad Language (BBC Radio Scotland).

 

“Tiernan boasts a magnificent curl in her lip and snarl in her voice.” SUNDAY TIMES

 

“her routines have a touch of whimsy while grounded in astute observation. It means her set sounds fresh and original, without being so wilfully strange it will alienate all but the most dedicated followers.” CHORTLE

 

“The fastest-rising comedy talent in the country” IRISH TIMES

 

“Eleanor Tiernan is far and away the best comic actress I have seen on stage.” HOT PRESS IRELAND

SOL BERNSTEIN

This Time Indoors (last appearance in the graveyard as a result of power cut).
 

 

 

SOL BERNSTEIN IS BACK!

 Yes it's true! After 25 years of semi-retirement, playing nursing homes, Sol Bernstein is back where he belongs, in smokey nightclubs performing to drunks.

 

He's the man who helped the careers of Elvis Presley, Marcel Marceau (never even got a "thank you") and even the Beatles were influenced. He's worked with, and been friends with, some of the worlds GREATEST performers; Judy Garland, The Rat Pack, Lenny Bruce, Jack Benny, George Burns, Milton Berle, Doris Day, Tommy Cooper, Eric Morecambe and Eddie Large.

 

He's performed all over the world at venues including The London Palladium, New York's Carnegie Hall, The Paris Olympia, Caesars Palace Las Vegas, and Scunthorpe Baths, but it's at night clubs where Sol really comes to life. His charisma, his style, his catch phrase "why don't you put on a tie" his chutzpah, put it all together and you get the magic that is Sol Bernstein.

 

"An instantly winning creation"

EVENING STANDARD

 

"No age barrier to comic genius"

Edinburgh Evening News

 

"Bernstein's the real deal, you'd better believe it"

The Scotsman
