Lloyd is a comedian, a professional choirboy and a good looking guy. He took his debut solo show to Edinburgh fringe festival in 2014 to rave reviews. In 2014 he appeared on BBC3's Sweat The Small Stuff, BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge Comedy Club as well as supporting Rob Beckett on his 2013-2014 sold out UK tour.
Grimsby-born Lloyd regularly performs at some of the largest clubs in the UK and even some of the smaller ones too.
Singing wise, Lloyd is a professional (choral) singer and can be heard performing with the choirs of Westminster Abbey, St George's Chapel – Windsor Castle and various other London groups. What a guy.
'The next big thing' - FHM
'There’s no doubt about it; Lloyd Griffith is the king of the unexpected. His sense of fun is infectious, his singing voice faultless and his anecdotes are told with boundless confidence. Griffith has clearly established his own style of comedy' - ThreeWeeks
and your compere...
Whilst travelling the world entertaining the masses at circus and theatre festivals everywhere, Andre found himself working at Disney World Florida at the end of '88. A friend tried to change his sad demeanour by taking him to a comedy club in Orlando and three hours later a new chapter opened in his life. He kept returning to the club, speaking to comics and schmoozing the management, and within a few months he was on the road compering at small stand-up clubs in the southern states of America.
His apprenticeship in Georgia and Alabama was good enough in the eyes of his peers to get gigs in other states of the U.S. and the pinnacle of this work was opening for Bob Hope in Columbus, Ohio in 1992.
With his head swelling and his tongue tripping one-liners, he returned home to conquer the comedy circuit of the U.K., and in no time at all established himself as one of the top stand-ups in the country today. His individual style has taken him across the scope of the performance medium: a Saturday night show on Channel 4, three sell-out runs at the Edinburgh festival, countless radio shows, presenter of two award-nominated television programmes, a regular face on daytime panel games and even an appearance as himself on the children's drama 'Byker Grove'.
Vincent sits on the board of The Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society.
'An improvising comedy genius' - The Guardian
'He possesses the energy of Lee Evans with the improvisational skills of Paul Merton and is one of the best comedians in the business.' - The Times
'André Vincent was also there' - The Chinese People's Press
