Southport Visiter - - Nostalgia -

ACOMEDY writer for John Bishop is among co­me­di­ans star­ring at the Laugh Out Loud Com­edy Club in South­port this week­end.

Mick Ferry is an award-win­ning star of BBC1`s Michael McIn­tyre’s Com­edy Road­show and writer for John Bishop’s Bri­tain (BBC1).

He is an­other top class head­liner who is renowned as a fine and imag­i­na­tive act – so much so that he is one of the most sought-af­ter comics on the Bri­tish and In­ter­na­tional cir­cuit.

On TV he has starred in BBC1`s Michael McIn­tyre’s Com­edy Road­show as well as Com­edy Blue and The Com­edy Store (both Com­edy Cen­tral).

He made his big screen de­but in 2009 in Ken Loach’s Look­ing For Eric – a hit fea­ture film at the Cannes film fes­ti­val where it was nom­i­nated for the pres­ti­gious Palm D’Or.

A pro­lific comic, he is a writer on John Bishop’s Bri­tain (BBC1).

Mick is much ad­mired among his fel­low comics and has been in­vited to per­form as the of­fi­cial tour sup­port not just for Johnny Ve­gas but for Sean Lock, Peter Kay, Al Mur­ray and Steve Coogan too.

No sur­prise then that he’s been voted Best Live UK Stand-Up 2013 and is part of the team that won the Ed­in­burgh Com­edy Award Win­ner Panel Prize 2014.

Also on the bill at The Atkin­so­nis Tom Wrig­glesworth, a highly cel­e­brated com­edy tal­ent, and creator and star of the BBC Ra­dio 4 show Tom Wrig­glesworth’s Open Let­ters.

Tom also re­cently ap­peared on BBC Three’s Rus­sell Howard’s Good News.

This Ed­in­burgh Com­edy Award Nom­i­nee (for­merly The Per­rier Award) is one of the smartest, fun­ni­est stand-ups you could hope to spend an evening with: An un­miss­able per­former.

Com­plet­ing the line-up, Luke Hon­nor­ity is liv­ing proof that some peo­ple were born to be on stage.

He com­bines child­ish hu­mour with an amaz­ing self aware­ness and nat­u­ral stage pres­ence re­sult­ing in an in­fec­tiously funny set.

Luke is a big favourite among co­me­di­ans on the cir­cuit.

As a re­sult of his fast grow­ing rep­u­ta­tion he’s been cho­sen to sup­port some big names, such as Rus­sell Kane and Kather­ine Ryan, on tour.

Plus your MC is Damion Larkin, one of Bri­tain’s most promis­ing com­edy tal­ents, renowned for be­ing a spon­ta­neous and lov­able host.

He said: “All line-ups are sub­ject to change, but don’t worry, we’ll only re­place them with some­one twice as funny!”

The event is on Satur­day, February 4, doors open at 7.30pm for an 8pm start. Tick­ets are £15 in ad­vance, £18 on the door, or £40 for a sea­son ticket (any four shows).
