Alternative Stand-Up

10th Nov 2009 - 8:00pm

The Arts Centre

Tickets £5.50 / £3.50 concessions.

Sean Percival

Sean’s act is the working man’s revenge on the safe, middle-class, politically correct humour that has dominated comedy.  His humour is not surreal, it’s not wacky, it’s just funny.  Sean is a regular at all the UK’s top comedy venues, including the successful Jongleurs chain and the Comedy store.

“This is not smile humour, this is bust your gut rubber underpants stuff.” Joan Serone Bungalow, What’s On

Mr Kenyon

An old Scouser with an imaginative stage set including magpies, and wheelie bins!

80s Luke

A larger than life Manc with a string of jokes.

Compere…. John Cooper

John Cooper has the audience smiling almost immediately, looking every inch the part of a comic, as he deliberately plays on his distinctively Middle Earthy features.

He has some cracking lines, with innate likeability and natural good humour that stands him in good stead as a compere.  The cornerstone of his chatty stand-up set is a routine about speed dating and picking up an attractive girl that has a nice pay-off.
