Mike Gunn

One of the top ten stand-ups in the country” – The Independent

Mike Gunn’s history is as interesting and entertaining as his comedy.  As a child the young Gunn was more interested in doing projects on implements of torture than playing football.  A misspent youth and a series of grim jobs cultivated his cynical outlook on life and a perverse desire led him to the world of stand-up.  A self-confessed pessimist, he describes himself as “not a natural choice for a career in laughter”.

His lugubrious comedy has been described as ‘drier than a dead man’s bones’. He has a rare ability to walk close to the line of what audiences find acceptable and yet still remain likable and funny.  His reputation for being a bit unfriendly, a touch dark and even sexist is really not true. In real life he’s loving, warm and philanthropic. Just a bit misunderstood.

Early in his career Mike was supporting the likes of Jo Brand and Alan Davies.  He now headlines at all the top comedy venues in the UK and is rapidly reaching cult status on the circuit.  He has performed internationally, taking his talent to Hong Kong, Ireland, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, New Zealand, and Saudi Arabia and to Australia at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, where he completed a five-week sell-out season.   He also had the dubious honour of being the first comic to ever play in Kuantan, East Malaysia.

Television appearances include The Gas (CH4), The Comedy Store (LWT), Live At Jongleurs (CH5), and Al Murray’s sit-com ‘Time Gentlemen Please’. He has also been a regular contributor for The Guardian. He has written for Time Out, The List, The 11 O’clock Show (CH4) and even Match of The Day Magazine.
