Duncan Oakley

With musical skills that would easily fit into many rock bands Duncan Oakley performs an infectious mix of musical comedy and stand up with one of his trusty guitars - Maurice (Fender Strat), No.7 (acoustic) or his Les Paul (the Lezza) by his side. With an eye and ear for the silly, rude, playful and downright irritating occurrences of life Duncan musters up songs that not only make you laugh, they bury into the recesses of your mind and find you a humming tune with a smile on your face 3 days later, confused and wondering where it’s come from.

Duncan has performed for nearly 10 years on the stand up circuit and performs regularly at some of the UK’s bigger weekend clubs as well as festivals, & Uni gigs. A talented all-round musician Duncan can also perform with harmonica, drums & piano as a one man musical whirlwind.

Welcome to the world of Duncan Oakley.

Andy Wilky

In 1995, he tried stand-up comedy for the first time at the Frog and Bucket comedy club, adopting the stage name “Smug Roberts”; the “smug” came from an event in his life where people teased him for being a “smug bastard” and the “Roberts” was adapted from his middle name. Caroline Aherne and her then-husband Peter Hook watched his set and she put him in contact with an agent. Six weeks later, He performed his first one-man gig.

In 1998, he released the novelty anthem “Meat Pie, Sausage Roll (Come on England, Gi’s a Goal)” as cult hero “Grandad Roberts”, both the character and song (originally a jingle referencing Oldham Athletic A.F.C. rather than England) stemming from an afternoon radio show on Key 103.
