Ryan Gough - Adult Stand Up Comedian - Birmingham, West Midlands Event Location: Sixways Stadium, Worcester Event Type: comedy night 17th December 2022
this guy is brilliantly funny, very charismatic too. great stories and delivery of the punchlines, everybody in the room had tears in their eyes with laughter. He even disarmed a heckler brilliantly to the standing applause of the crowd, and stayed for photos with everybody, great guy. Off to see him again soon, cant wait.

I've seen Ryan twice now and he is A first-class stand-up act with an incredible knack for keeping his comedy local no matter where he is.

Ryan Gough - Compere - Birmingham, West Midlands Event Location: Derby - Spondon Cricket Club Event Type: Private social club 6th April 2024
Ryan came back to Spondon Cricket Club after the success of last year’s event … this year was even bigger and better !!
