Anthony King -
Anthony has been a fixture on the U.K. comedy scene for over 30 years playing top U.K. Clubs, Theatres, Arts Centres and at Festivals. His unique dead-pan style was honed in the late 80's/early 90's in London before the circuit expanded to what it is today. At home with a quiet listening audience and the bustle of a rowdy club, with a set full of punchlines.
"It’s the one-liners that set him apart. Sparse, efficient, unexpected – and often with a delicious twinge of underlying nastiness – each one is an elegant example of perfect joke construction….” - chortle.co.uk
