Fresh from recording his own huge Friday night entertainment show with Big Narstie for Channel 4 and racking up over 11 million hits to date of his set on The Russell Howard Hour for Sky One, comedy’s brightest new star, Mo Gilligan, steps out this month to continue on his own 42 date UK tour, including an astonishing 22 sold out dates at London’s Leicester Square Theatre.
Tipped by Drake, Stormzy and Anthony Joshua amongst many others, Mo Gilligan is one of UK’s fastest rising stand up stars with an online reach running into the multiple millions. With his high-energy style and stunning physicality, Mo achieved phenomenal success in 2017 creating his own short form comedy content across a range of platforms, with huge viewer engagement. His sketches regularly go viral, trend and are endorsed by some of the most famous names in international music.
Without doubt, Mo Gilligan is very much comedy’s next big thing.
Mo first made his name as a stand up on the black comedy circuit, regularly playing iconic venues such as The Hackney Empire, O2 & Bloomsbury Theatre. Last year he went on to win Best Comedian award at the Black British Entertainment Awards after totally selling out his 2017 run of the ‘Coupla Cans’ run. Smashing all records for a debut stand up tour, Mo now embarks on another massive leg of unmissable UK dates, many of which sold out within minutes of being released. The show combines Mo’s trademark everyman style, with high-energy routines and astute comedic observations.
He’s already collaborated with the likes of The BET Awards in Los Angeles, appeared as a brand ambassador for Adidas alongside Stormzy, sent Instagram into a meltdown when international superstar Drake quoted one of his catchphrases, hosted Tinie Tempah’s Ibiza closing party performing to over 10,000 people and has consistently hit well over a million views for every new sketch offering he has released via social media.
Current TV projects include multiple shows for UK TV including Channel 4, BBC, ITV 2 and Sky One.

Upcoming comedian Lloyd Griffith has added further dates to his in:Undated UK tour, including three nights at London’s Soho Theatre between 15th and 17th February 2018. Tickets are now on sale at www.lloydgriffith.com.
inundated: VERB [WITH OBJECT]
1) To overwhelm (someone) with things or people to be dealt with
E.g. ‘Online dating is inundated with vacuous superficial people looking for meaningless interactions based on a photo where you have to look hot’
E.g. ‘man crying his eyes out'
Join Lloyd for another hour of engaging story-telling as he tackles how to overcome the overwhelming. Contains jokes, a bit of singing and probably some flirting.
Lloyd is a comedian, a choirboy and an aspiring goalkeeper. He’s the co-host of Soccer AM (Sky 1), the face of BBC3’s Taxi to Training – in which he drove the likes of Dele Alli, Troy Deeney and Christian Fuchs to training – and has been seen on Drunk History (Comedy Central), Sweat The Small Stuff (BBC3), In Off The Bar (Sky Sports), Rugby's Funniest Moments (Sky) and The Premier League Show (BBC2). He recently supported Jack Whitehall and Rob Beckett on their respective sold out UK tours, which saw him perform in front of thousands at Liverpool Echo, Newcastle Metro, Manchester, Leeds and Wembley Arenas and Hammersmith Apollo.
You may also have heard Lloyd guesting on BBC 5Live’s Fighting Talk, Rob Beckett’s Rock & Roll Football Show (Absolute Radio), The Warm Up with Jon Richardson & Matt Forde (TalkSport) as well as co-commentating on Grimsby Town FC games for BBC Radio Humberside.
Lloyd is a huge football fan and has written and starred in several viral football videos including Every Premier League Football Fan in 90 seconds (The Football Republic) and FIFA: Quest for the Best (EA Sports/Sky Sports). He’s been a guest on Spencer FC’s online panel show Bench Warmers, playing FIFA with Deli Alli & Cesc Fabregas. Lloyd also co-hosted the Facebook Football Awards with Sam Matterface which streamed live to over 3 million people and co-hosted The London Football Awards with Gary Lineker.
Singing wise, Lloyd can often be heard performing with the choirs of Westminster Abbey, St George’s Chapel – Windsor Castle and various other London groups.

Award winning production company Lipsink and United Agents are delighted to announce that after two critically acclaimed, sell out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Soho Theatre, Hear Me Raw will now take in twelve dates at London’s Arcola Theatre, from 12th to 24th February 2018. For tickets and more information, please visit: www.arcolatheatre.com
It brings up some 13 million hits on Instagram. It’s three times larger than the worldwide pharmaceutical industry. Its leaders are Gwyneth Paltrow, Deliciously Ella and Belle Gibson. #Wellness is the millennial religion. And when January comes round, it means you simply must cleanse, detox, sweat… do everything you can to become part of the movement. What happens though if wellness starts making us sick?
In an autobiographical story about #empowerment and crippling insecurity, #fitspiration and fragile bones, #superfoodsmoothies and so much debt, Daniella Isaacs peels back the Instagram filter to reveal the dirty truth behind clean living. Aged 24, Daniella joined the cult of contemporary wellness. She spiralised courgettes, saluted the sun, and came out top in spinning class. She even ghost-wrote for some of the world’s most well-known wellness brands. But it’s been two years since Daniella’s last period. Her bones are disintegrating, hairs are springing up in all the wrong places, and her anxiety is sky-rocketing. The doctors are saying her lifestyle is responsible. In a clean-living obsessed world, what does wellness even mean?
“I felt lost and overwhelmed, and with the help of social media, I found the wellness world, which offered easy answers. I followed endless recipes promising positivity, empowerment and insta-worthy abs. But clean living couldn’t cure my anxiety. If anything, it made it so much worse. From the front line of wellness, I can tell you that taut abs and glowy skin don’t bring you happiness and gluten-dairy-sugar-free bliss balls definitely don’t lead you down the path to enlightenment. I know I’m not alone in this wellness obsession, and I want this show to provide an antidote to the squeaky clean social media feeds which brush the complexities of human existence under yoga mats and crisp, white table cloths.”
Hear Me Raw is a darkly comic, genre-bending new play about restriction, control and too much turmeric. The show also sheds light on ‘Orthorexia nervosa’, an eating disorder characterised by an unhealthy obsession with healthy eating. It is yet to be recognized by official medical bodies. It’s time to redefine what wellness really means.
Hear Me Raw is from LIPSINK, the company behind irreverent intermarriage comedy Mush and Me, the winner of the 2014 IdeasTap Underbelly Award & the Holden Street Adelaide Fringe Award.
LIPSINK is Rosy Banham and Daniella Isaacs’s creative partnership. www.lipsinktheatre.com

'Milton Jones is out there UK tour' extended into Spring 2018; 48 additional shows added due to phenomenal demand
Milton Jones – star of Mock The Week (BBC Two), Live at the Apollo (BBC One) and Live at the Palladium (ITV) – is delighted to announce an extension to his existing UK tour, with an additional
48 dates added to cater to phenomenal demand. The tour began in Richmond on 22nd September 2017 and will now take in 109 dates in total, with tickets for the extra shows going on sale at 10am on www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
Milton Jones is Out There is a manifesto of nonsense and the perfect antidote to the world's troubles. If this master of the one-liner was running for Prime Minister, would the world be a worse place? The answer is a unanimous yes, but don't let that put you off.
Milton will be holding up the mirror of truth to society, and he can see right through it, which probably means it's just a window. He'll also be putting his foot down and lifting the lid on the media's pedal bin of lies (which doesn't include this press release of course). This is family-friendly, finely-crafted comedy at its best from one of the legends of the UK comedy scene.
Milton Jones says:
"I’m not stupid. This tour extension proves that I know Britain, and that its true king will continue to meet his subjects in cognito. Which I think is near Leicester."
Milton is one of the UK's best-loved and biggest-selling stand-ups, with his last two tours each seeing him perform to more than 100,000 people. He made his comedy debut in 1996, scooping the prestigious Perrier Best Newcomer Award, and he has since become a mainstay of the UK comedy scene. He is a regular face on TV such as Mock The Week, Live at the Apollo, Live at the Palladium and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, as well as being about to record a twelfth radio series for Radio 4.

Tickets for the Spring 2018 extension to Milton Jones is Out There go on sale on at 10am.
