Justin-Moorhouse-Destiny-Calling-tour-picture-Edited‘Brimming with confidence, Moorhouse exudes a likeable energy that could raise the dead …His affable character has a certain old-fashioned charm, as his is the sort of personality which you instinctively trust to make you laugh – and he doesn’t disappoint…Moorhouse entertainingly recounts his tales and well-made observations… impressive indeed’ – Chortle

Howard Walker
Comedy Cellar Best New Yorkshire Act 2015. Self confessed metal head proffering oodles of onstage warmth and dry wit.
‘Like a third Hairy Biker but with more charm and better punchlines’ –

AND . . . 

Compere – Elliot J Huntley
With a fabulous array of highly inventive tall-tales and gently twisted punchlines regarding relationships, fatherhood and hanging around low quality nightclubs in the grim hope of an extra curricular dalliance, Elliot’s comedic terrain is constantly entertaining. With his self-confessed oily superficial goodwill he manages to charm even the most stoic of audiences with his playful patter and side-splitting songs performed on mandolin and laced with instantly memorable couplets.

‘It was most impressive how effortlessly he commanded the crowd courtesy of some cracking gags, superb comic songs and old school onstage poise’ – What’s On
