Loveable Northern rogue, Colin Murphy is as close as you can get to a sure fire Festival banker. An experienced, reliable comic with a fluid, mesmerising style and a sizeable bank of anecdotes and observations that never fail. Colin’s delivery is immaculate and he has a laugh-per-minute ratio that most other comics can only aspire to. A natural performer and a superb mimic, Colin is proof that good old, straight stand up is still hard to beat.
