Comics sign up for 'adult entertainment' website

...but as producers of content

A bunch of stand-up and cabaret stars have turned to a platform best known for its adult content to help them get through the lockdown.

OnlyFans has compiled a list comedy performers who have started offering content on their site, which has been embraced by porn stars both professional and amateur thanks to its over-18s policy.

But the same rules also means comics can rant and swear and address adult themes more freely than they could on platforms such as Facebook, YouTube or Instagram, the company argues, making it more like a no-holds-barred comedy club.

It is not the first tie-up between comedy and adult entertainment industries during the lockdown, as New York comedy club Stand Up NY previously teamed up with adult entertainment website CamSoda to stream a show 

New comedy recruits include:

THOM TUCK who was nominated as Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2011 for Thom Tuck Goes Straight-to-DVD, which was subsequently adapted into a BBC Radio 4 show. He said: I am delighted to be getting into the lucrative camgirl market at this difficult time"

SAM PAMPHILON: Sam is best known as a team captain on Dara O’Briain’s Go 8 Bit, developed from an Edinburgh show that he created with his double-act partner Steven McNeil & Pamphilon. He said: "I’m looking forward to seeing if there really is any fiscal value in my cesspit of a life"  

YIANNI AGISILAOU: Largely British-based Australian comic who is a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe and various Australian festivals. He said: ‘I look forward to bringing my knowledge and passion to the platform and to engaging, entertaining and educating my fans’

GRANT BUSÉ: An Australian musical comedian, who rhymed: ‘For all the comedy facebook bans, subscribe to us on OnlyFans.’

DUSTY LIMITS: Singer, comic and cabaret artist, who says: ‘I'm thrilled to be part of OnlyFans. It feels distinctly naughty, which is right up my alley’. 

MYRA DUBOIS: Cabaret star who will feature in the movie version of  Everybody's Talking About Jamie and says: ‘I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be putting out exclusive content for the most ardent of my AdMyras on this wholesome website! Who'd have thought at this point in my career I'd be putting out an OnlyFans? Certainly not me…'   

ROSCO MCCLELLAND: Twice nominated best newcomer at the Scottish Comedy Awards, and winner of Scottish Comedian of the Year in 2016, McClelland says: ‘OnlyFans is such a huge platform, I can’t wait to get involved and create fresh, engaging content for my community.’

RICHARD SANDLING: Comedian who has appeared in Zapped, The Catherine Tate Nan specials, Peep Show, Miranda and on Russell Howard’s Good News. He is known for his love of films and created the live show Richard Sandling’s Perfect Movie to exploit that. He said: ‘ As someone with many strings to their bow, it's a wonderful opportunity to connect more directly with your audience and focus on providing that content that they want most of, as well as surprising them every once in a while with something unexpected.’

ELEANOR CONWAY: A comedian who has extensively toured with her one-woman show Walk Of Shame, and also an advocate for drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Her new show is called You May Recognise Me From Tinder. She said: ‘My shows are usually a bit too hot to handle for most audiences but I think the OnlyFans community will be more tuned up to the filthier side of comedy and get what I do. I can’t wait to debut my 'too hot for other channels' (fully clothed) content on Only Fans. If you want award winning comedy content from this ex-porn editor, the worst sugar baby in the world and London's best Tinder addict... then you know where to come/‘  

JONATHAN PHANG: A judge Britain’s Next Top Model and host of a ten-part series for Food Network UK called Jonathan Phang’s Caribbean Cookbook. He says: ‘I always enjoy bringing humour and laughter to my kitchen and cooking, so my subscribers will be able to enjoy a laugh, a glass or two of good wine and a plateful of delicious food all at the same time.’

JOJO BELLINI: A saucy songstress and culinary queen who has performed on the fringe circuit in Edinburgh, Brighton, Prague and Australia She says: ‘I’m so excited to be working on this platform. Entertainment is the reflection of who we are as a society. And I choose to make it saucy!’

SANDRA LONDON: Drag cabaret star with 30 years of singing, cracking jokes and ‘shaking her money-maker’ under her belt. She says: ‘I’m known for filthy fun that’s certainly not family friendly, so I was thrilled to be asked to join OnlyFans as that’s the place for me.’
