Early on in his career, Pierre supported the likes of Lenny Henry and Rory Bremner. He is sometimes known to use his guitar to deliver a host of clever jokes that rhyme, his first guitar was a one-string electric squash racquet which is still used at festival gigs today. Pierre Hollins describes himself as ”far-fetched and slightly dangerous”, seeing really is believing. His first novel THE KARMA FARMERS was published last year but Pierre has also written for radio and television and his cartoon strip GURU featured in the Fortean Times for many years.

Dan Antopolski is a comic, actor and writer. He has appeared in various television programs and radio shows but is best known to younger audiences for hosting the UK game show The Dare Devil on CBBC. Dan has won the BBC New Comedy Award and the Dave Award for Best Joke – “Hedgehogs – why can’t they just share the hedge?”, which went viral and his agents had to issue a cease and desist order to a T-shirt company reproducing the joke. He has appeared at international comedy festivals in Montreal, Melbourne and New York. Dan has been a regular performer at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, had minor roles in films(Such as Good Omens and Paddington 2 to name a few) and appeared on a number of UK Comedy panel shows. Dan Antopolski’s comedy style has been described as surreal and ironic, in a 2008 review he was described as “a natural heir to Bill Bailey”.
“The man’s charms lie in his combination of old-fashioned and new styles: he makes entirely plausible jokes in a surrealistic, laddish vein only to undermine them later and take them on to unexpected levels. Antopolski has a neat turn of phrase and a nicely-skewed comedy vision which, while keeping him one step beyond the best of the mainstream, also provide him with oddly seductive powers over his audience.” – THE TIMES.
