Ray’s a laugh as lead­ing comic trio head for the Atkin­son stage

Southport Visiter - - Theatre, Arts & Comedy -

ON THE first Satur­day of ev­ery month, the Laugh Out Loud Com­edy Club of­fers a rau­cous evening of en­ter­tain­ment, bring­ing the best live stand-up to South­port!

This month fea­tures one of the lead­ing lights of Scot­tish com­edy, Ray­mond Mearns, Bri­tain’s only Goth, les­bian, trans­sex­ual co­me­dian, Bethany Black, and mul­ti­award­win­ning co­me­dian Matt Rees

The show is hosted by co­me­dian Damion Larkin, who will of­ten im­pro­vise his en­tire set to hi­lar­i­ous ef­fect.

Ray­mond Mearns is also a Bafta-nom­i­nated ac­tor and one of the lead­ing lights of Scot­tish com­edy.

His list of TV and film cred­its is as long as your arm and he’s re­garded not only as one of the top acts in Scot­land, but also in the UK com­edy in­dus­try as a whole.

He holds the hon­our of hav­ing been cho­sen to rep­re­sent Glag­sow at both the New York Com­edy Fes­ti­val and the Mel­bourne In­ter­na­tional Com­edy Fes­ti­val.

Bethany Black is a one- way ticket to a world you never knew ex­isted.

De­spite be­ing “unique”, she’s warm, chatty and has built a cult fol­low­ing for her brand of con­fes­sional com­edy.

She pro­vides a sar­cas­tic and dark view of the world’s taboo sub­jects in a neat PVC-clad pack­age.

Her TV cred­its are im­pres­sive as she plays He­len Brears in Cu­cum­ber (Chan­nel 4) and she also starred as 474 in the ninth episode of the ninth sea­son of Doc­tor Who (BBC).

Multi-award-win­ning co­me­dian Matt Rees has gen­er­ated a huge buzz on the cir­cuit with his unique brand of well-crafted gags and acer­bic de­liv­ery, earn­ing him high praise from au­di­ences and crit­ics alike.

LOL Com­edy Club is held at The Atkin­son, South­port.

Tick­ets cost £16.50 in ad­vance / £19 on the door.
