Over the last 10 years Bromley Comedy has presented some of the world's finest comedians from Russell Howard Reginald D Hunter, Russell Kane, Sarah Millican, Jack Whitehall, Micky Flanagan many more.
BOB MILLS is a true elder statesman of British stand-up comedy. The man who bridged the gap between the first wave of "alternative comedy" in the mid-eighties and the new laddism of the early '90s, star Bob Mills is as popular today as when he first strolled on to the comedy circuit in 1985.
Now approaching his silver jubilee as a stand-up comic, Bob is one of the most recognisable and respected comedians in the business. His voice is pretty famous too as not a weekend goes past without Bob and his distinctive cockney drawl getting an airing not once but several times as either a host or guest on the numerous sports, comedy and current affairs that dominate the airwaves.
For although Bob Mills may have been born in Chester, it was only a brief stop, Bob is a dyed-in-the-wool Londoner and proud of it. Particularly the East End, home to both Mills himself and more importantly (to him at least) his beloved Leyton Orient Football Club. Bob Mills writes a regular column for the O’s match day programme.
It is his love of football (although not necessarily Orient) and all sport that has enabled Bob as a comedian, to tap into the modern male (and many female) psyche because he is talking the language of the people on the terraces, streets and settees of Britain.
He started out as a hotel valet (albeit a slow one) in that salubrious epitome of London, King's Cross, before a visit to his friendly neighbourhood stand-up comedy club turned his world upside down when he discovered he could make people laugh.
It was then that Bob Mills found himself the man-of-the-moment, bringing some much-needed fresh new blood to the now not-so-alternative comedy scene, and at the vanguard of what become known as the "new lad" movement along with his long-term friend and colleague Danny Baker and other torch-bearers like Keith Allen, Chris Evans, Jack Dee and Jonathan Ross.
