Archie Maddocks is a London based stand up comedian. He has been performing regularly since late 2012, and in that short time, has made it to the finals and semi finals of several prestigious competitions.
Armed with a natural stage presence, and a “winning smile”, Archie possesses an affable and likeable nature that immediately puts people at ease. He has impressed both his peers and audiences with his charismatic, conversational style, hilarious observations and quick, acerbic wit. He has an astute sense of comic timing and has the ability to send the room into hysterics with nothing more than a subtle glance.
Archie has a gift for storytelling and often recounts his past experiences on stage, sometimes ending up with absurd consequences. He regularly proves an instant hit with audiences, having beaten the gong at both Comedy Stores (London and Manchester) on his first try. His charming persona results in people left hugely impressed and wanting to see more.
