Very few funny things have come out of East Anglia...Nik Kershaw's mid-eighties pop career, the Ipswich Town defence and Delia Smith's motivational half-time speeches being the sparse exceptions...but all that has changed with the arrival on the comedy scene of Tony Cowards.
Tony, originally from sleepy Suffolk but now an adopted "cocker-knee" in the East End of London, was practically press ganged into the world of stand up
A genial gagster whose material covers a wide range of topics (mostly semi-autobiographical and observational with a pinch of topicality) his spontaneity and ability to "riff" with audiences of all persuasions has made him sought after as an opening act and compere (by amongst others, Mirth Control, Christian Knowles Productions, the prestigious Hi-Fi Club in Leeds and various independent promoters around the UK).
