Yet another brilliant returning headliner for our April show: we are pleased to welcome back one of the most popular acts we’ve ever had at CCC, complemented perfectly by an array of fantastic supporting acts.
Comedian, Songwriter, Musician, Actor, One man band!
With musical skills that would easily fit into many rock bands Duncan Oakley performs an infectious mix of musical comedy and stand up with one of his trusty guitars – Maurice (Fender Strat), No.7 (acoustic) or his Les Paul (the Lezza) by his side.
He has been a musician since the age of six, has performed on the UK comedy circuit since 1999, appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, on BBC Radio 4 and at many summer festivals as well as starring in Beat24’s feature film Frontman and short film Read Between the Signs. Duncan was voted English Comedian of the Year in 2015 and Midlands Comedian of the Year 2016.
With an eye and ear for the silly, rude, playful and downright irritating occurrences of life Duncan musters up songs that not only make you laugh, they bury into the recesses of your mind and find you a humming tune with a smile on your face three days later, confused and wondering where it’s come from.
Duncan performs regularly at some of the UKs biggest clubs and festivals. A talented all-round musician Duncan can also perform with harmonica, drums & piano as a one man musical whirlwind.
Here’s some nice things people have said about Duncan:
“Leaping between stupidity and pure brilliance!” YORKSHIRE EVENING POST
“Unlike some musical comics who rely on a guitar to get them through, Oakley’s routine deftly mixes the tunes with the stand-up” CITY LIFE
“24 Carat likeability!” PLYMOUTH HERALD
Plus support including host for the evening, Cottingham Comedy Club’s second best compere Jed Salisbury, plus a brilliant opener and two up and coming acts in the middle section.

Running since 2016, Cottingham Comedy Club, the village’s best* comedy venue, provides an unique comedy experience in many ways. This intimate club gets you up close and personal with the acts, many of whom are breaking through into TV, or are established acts from the UK and international comedy circuit. We are a welcoming venue and we have a dedicated room for the comedy, with regular breaks between the acts for you to lubricate your throats with laughter juice. With four acts and a compere it’s great value for money at less than £2 per comedian. We think it’s the most fun you can have with friends on a midweek night out.
We aim to run this as a regular night again, on the second Thursday of every month, as we were pre-pandemic (except occasionally when we can’t be arsed).
