Every now and then due to a freak of chemistry an act is formed with ‘Star Quality’ and these two young men have that ingredient! Ian Davis who has managed numerous comedy acts, notably ‘The Mad Hatters’, has had a great input in bringing these two men to the forefront of the comedy cabaret world. Steve Garrod & Sam Aubry make up ‘The Unlikely Lads’, They are one of the top comedy duo’s in the country, a country who gave us great comedy double acts such as Morecambe and Wise & Cannon & Ball. To name these men in the same sentence as the aforementioned may seem a little brave but once you have seen The Unlikely Lads, you will realise they are ‘stars in the making’.
Steve Garrod started his showbusiness life as a blue coat entertainer for Pontins Holidays in 1996 and then, in 1999 went on to be an entertainer for First Choice in Fuerteventura.
