Flood & Coast Dinner

The Flood & Coast 2017 Dinner will be held on Wednesday 29 March at Telford International Centre. The evening will feature the Environment Agency Project Excellence awards.

Stand-up comedian and comedy writer Dominic Holland is a well-established comic artist with experience as an after dinner speaker, actor and comedian. Launching his career with a Perrier Best Newcomer Award in 1993 Holland is one of the most popular event comedians in the UK.

Dominic has contributed to the work of both Bob Monkhouse and Clive Anderson, he has appeared as a panellist on Have I Got News For You and Never Mind the Buzzcocks. A strong comedian in his own right Dominic has presented three full length stand-up shows, appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and hosts his own comedy show for BBC Radio 4. He is a regular at both the Comedy Store and Jongleurs; his material is creative and brilliant and never stoops to the lows of offensive or vulgar jokes and is a joy to watch.
