In 2002 after winning the Time-Out Competition to be a Perrier judge at the Edinburgh festival, Dan Willis made the move from computer programmer to full time comedian. The IT crash also made this move slightly easier, if not essential- you’ve got to see the funny side of things after all. Willis performed in Edinburgh for the first time in 2002 with the Amused Moose Hot Starlets, a showcase of comedians including Greg Davies, Matthew Osborn, Nina Conti, Rhod Gilbert and fellow North-Easterner Patrick Monaghan. Now, after over 2000 gigs in 11 different countries, including TV appearances in the UK and Australia. Willis performs in all major comedy clubs as a headline act or MC (Comedy Store, Jongleurs, Comedy Central, etc), and International festivals throughout the globe performing solo shows (New Zealand and Melbourne Comedy Festivals, Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringes to name but a few).
Andrew Roper has been a stand up comedian and writer for over 20 years. including a decade of Stand Up comedy performing all over London and the UK. He has performed multiple times at Comedy Festivals in Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Brighton and Edinburgh. Outside of stand up, corporate work and festivals he has also had long radio stints at TT FM, MIX FM, and GOLD FM in Australia.
