Headliner: Phil Walker

Phil
Walker’s act has taken him to some weird & wonderful places, from a scout
hut in Unst in the Shetland Isles to a cabin on Mount
Alice in the Falkland
Islands.  

Phil is proud to have entertained over 4000 troops on tours in war torn Afghanistan. “I’ve
played to some tough crowds in my time but never with machine guns, thank God
they liked me!”

 Steve Harris replaces Kate Fox, who due to unforeseen circumstances cannot perform.

“He
made me howl with laughter”
Billy Connolly

Steve’s
comedic ability comes from his warm nature, so whether he’s dealing with
hecklers or his mum, there’s always a level of warmth in his attack, even if it
is pre-emptive . His most obvious asset is his ability to get any audience immediately
on his side.

He has won 
the coveted ‘North West Comedian of the year award’.  Now
with gigs worldwide including Australia and Afghanistan, Steve has headlined
all over the comedy circuit, and done support slots for Johnny Vegas, Peter
Kay, Lee Evans, and Jack Dee

tears of laughter from my face”
