What better way to get yourself into the mood for New Year’s Eve than our NYE Comedy Evening here at Revolution, Torquay? Laugh your heads off to some of the UK’s funniest circuit comedians and feel free to hang around to see in 2019 too!
Troy Hawke, Duncan Oakley, TBC, MC Rob Riley
£TBC Doors 7pm Show 7.30pm Fully seated. Acts subject to change. Strong language and adult themes.
Troy Hawke, the latest character from comedian Milo McCabe is as believable as he is blisteringly funny. This idiot savante dresses like a matinee idol, speaks in perfect received pronunciation and is completely at odds with the world around him. Whether recounting an afternoon at the football with ‘the chaps’ or engaging in ‘audience badinage’ with the front row you can be sure the laughs come thick and fast. Edinburgh Fringe runs have been rewarded with GQ Magazine’s Top 10 Shows Of The Fringe and a Time Out Critic’s Award. Troy’s also building a cult following on YouTube with his documentaries on great British institutions such as Wetherspoons and Wilkos. 2018 saw him go viral and come to national attention when he foiled a street robbery whilst remaining completely in character!
‘Undeniably funny’ ★★★★ Chortle ‘Mad comic genius’ The Scotsman
Duncan Oakley powers out a deft blend of stupidity and truly impressive musicianship with hilarious results. An easy confidence and good natured banter make him a regular at all the best venues. Lesser musical comedians hide behind their guitars and use them as a shield but Duncan’s is definitely a sword as audiences who have been slain with laughter will gladly testify!
