Headline Act: Tanyalee Davis
Supporting Acts: Christian Reilly & Rod Shepherd
Compere: Nick Wills
Tanyalee Davis is standup comedian who inspires, enlightens and entertainsher audiences while headlining at comedy clubs, colleges, and comedy festivals throughout North America, the UK, and other parts of the world with her own unique perspective and somewhat racy brand of comedy.
Standing at 3′ 6″ tall, Tanyalee is the Ferrari of comedy – low to the ground and kind of racy.
Canadian born, Tanyalee currently makes the stage her home while touring all over the world bringing the funny!
In 2007 Tanyalee premiered her first one-woman show called “Little Do They Know” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where she received 4 star reviews.
From January to June 2011, Tanyalee performed her very successful one-woman show called “Little Comedian, BIG Laughs” , just off the Las Vegas strip, four nights a week for six months.
In July 2011, the pilot episode of “Adam Hills: Comically Challenged” aired on BBC Northern Ireland where Tanyalee was featured. This show is currently being targeted at the US market.
Tanyalee starred in the premiere episode of “Last Comic Standing 2”, “Little People, Big World” as well as featuring on “World’s Smallest People” on ITV (UK) and TLC -The Learning Channel.
Working on “Austin Powers 3: Goldmember” movie teaser was a highlight of Tanyalee’s career, along with featuring in a movie called, “For the Love of Money”. Tanyalee has also appeared on MTV’s BASH and Dave Attel’s Insomniac show: Live at the House of Blues.
In 2012, Tanyalee supported the amazing Frankie Boyle on his national UK tour. 2012 also saw her star in Season 1 of CH4’s hit TV show “Im Spazticus”. The show was so successful that she was subsequently invited back to star in a bigger role in Season 2, which aired in late 2013.
2013 also saw her appear as a guest on Adam Hill’s CH4 hit show, “The Last Leg”.
Tanyalee is also part of Abnormally Funny People, an ensemble show, performing throughout the United Kingdom.
Tanyalee’s perception of people, and how they perceive her, exaggerates the humour of life’s “little” tasks and routines. One theme in Tanyalee’s act is about being “sexy”. The “sexy comes from within”, which means everyone can be sexy and Tanyalee proves it.
2015 saw her UK Television prime-time debut when she appeared on BBC1’s The John Bishop Show, quickly followed by her amazing debut on BBC2’s Live At The Apollo 2015 Christmas Special. Both of these dazzling performances saw her stock as a headline comic rise to even greater heights!
Tanyalee continues to make a significant dent in the worldwide comedy circuit, headlining throughout the US, Canada and the UK. What she lacks in height she makes up in tenacity. She is often referred to as “The Little Lady With A Lot Of BIG Laughs.”
“Tanyalee Davis is simply one of the funniest people I know. She has a unique view of the world and if you haven’t seen her I urge to go, sit back, relax and laugh. ”
“Joan Rivers meets a pile-driver”.
“A master of physical punctuation”

“She was rude and crude but side-splittingly hilarious”
THE SHIELDS GAZETTE
At the age of 15, Christian Reilly joined a band to get laid. The Salvation Army had different ideas…
As former integral part of the Perrier award-winning show Otis Lee Crenshaw and the Black Liars, with comic/songster Rich Hall, Christian’s career has taken him around the world three times. On his way, he received accolades at international festivals and numerous network TV credits in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Britain.
Now a solo stand-up performer and playing all the major comedy venues in his own right, Christian uses his dynamic guitar and vocal skills to target histrionic rock bands, musical theatre and morose indie musicians. He recently wrote and performed for ‘That Was Then This Is Now’ (BBC Radio 2) as musical counterpart to Richard Herring and Emma Kennedy, as well as giving his improvisation skills an outing on Radio 2’s ‘Jammin’.
Christian’s comic songs, improvisations, sharp wit and youthful energy have delighted audiences wherever he performs. He was recently interviewed for the British Comedy Awards Magazine, and will be appearing in Edinburgh in 2006, performing in the ever-popular ‘AAA’ at the Pleasance Courtyard.
