What a line-up we have for you at our very first Why The Long Face? Comedy Club @ The Black Horse in Whitley Bay. 

Kai is a happy-go-lucky, supremely funny and truly loveable Geordie comedian and compere, his infectious enthusiasm and high-octane delivery of genuinely hilarious and delightfully optimistic material has seen him rapidly shooting up the professional comedy ranks.

In May 2010 he recorded his TV debut for Comedy Central’s “The Comedy Store” alongside some of the biggest names in comedy, barely 18 moths after his very first time ever on stage.


Distinguished as a comic by his eloquence and keen eye for a fine phrase, Roger’s easy observational style is spiked by the signal flares of an accomplished gag writer. A supremely confident compere and seasoned corporate host, Roger is happy to improvise freely with a crowd and is at great ease bantering with an audience, but has no shortage of first class observational material in his armoury.

As one of the most sought after acts on the comedy circuit, Roger headlines at all the major comedy venues and has performed extensively throughout the United Kingdom and Internationally.


Son of the legendary Roy Walker.

Formerly a dead pan comedian but almost noticeably happier these days almosty. He has no wry observations on life, no political satire, no cranky slapstick actions, just an innate ability to crack some of the best hand made gags on the circuit today, delivered with perfect timimg (normally always on stage). Sometimes scruffy, sometimes smart, often blue occasionally crude, always entertaining.
