Laugh­ter on the menu as bar and restau­rant hosts com­edy night

Midweek Visiter - - News -

THE Firepit restau­rant and bar, on West Street, in South­port town cen­tre, is host­ing its first com­edy night this June.

Bren­dan Ri­ley will host a great night of en­ter­tain­ment at the venue with The Com­edy Pit on Thurs­day, June 7, with head­lin­ers Karen Bay­ley and Steve Har­ris.

Karen, who sup­ported Joe Lycett on his 2016 tour, made a name for her­self early on in her ca­reer, reach­ing the semi-fi­nal of the pres­ti­gious BBC New Com­edy Awards, be­fore be­ing crowned the win­ner of the 2001 Ko­me­dia New Act.

She fol­lowed by be­com­ing the first fe­male win­ner of the pres­ti­gious Com­edy Store King Gong award, as well as reach­ing the fi­nals of both the BBC New Com­edy Awards Show­case and Baby­cham Funny Women.

De­light­fully saucy, her friendly and con­fi­dent stage pres­ence make her a comedic force to be reck­oned with.

Steve Har­ris first leapt on stage back in Au­gust, 1998, and within three months had won him­self the cov­eted North West Co­me­dian of the Year Award af­ter just five gigs.

A finalist of the BBC new com­edy awards and Chan­nel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny in the same year, Steve went on to head­line all of the top UK com­edy clubs and venues as far-flung as Hong Kong and Aus­tralia.

With sup­port slots with the likes of Johnny Ve­gas, Peter Kay and Lee Evans, Steve comes highly recommended from the heavy­weights of com­edy them­selves.

Host Bren­dan’s Liver­pudlian ac­cent and lively blend of anec­dotes, gags and inspired im­pro­vi­sa­tion bring a re­fresh­ing blast of cheer­ful North­ern hu­mour to any gig and make him a sought-af­ter host and head­line act.

Tick­ets are £10 each, doors 7pm, show 8pm, pre show food avail­able from 6.30pm.
