Stand-Up Comedy February

7th Feb 2012 - 8:00pm

The Arts Centre

Stand-up Comedy in the Rose Theatre with Jamie Sutherland, Lenny Peters, Ryan Brown & Scott Bennett.

Tickets: £7 / £5 concessions / £2 Edge Hill students

Headliner: Jamie
Sutherland

Liverpool has a history for
producing some of the country’s finest comedy talent, and Jamie Sutherland can
now be added to that fine list. An
original, modern act, with many observational topics, and up to date material,
and if you prefer a good old style gag, he has plenty of them to throw in,
ensuring a performance that will touch everyone’s buttons. 

Like John Bishop, Jamie is a comedy raconteur – and his jokes are a bit like Peter Kay, with some good old style gags thrown in too!

Lenny Peters

Lenny Peters has been a professional comedy actor for over
15 years. He has appeared in a number of
TV sit-coms including Life as We Know It with Richard Wilson and Fifteen
Stories High with Shaun Lock. He has
played numerous comedy characters in adverts and on radio.

Ryan Brown

Ryan Brown, who specialises in deadpan one-liners, won the North West round of the
Laughing Horse New Act of the Year Competition. He secured the audience vote and a place in
the next round, which takes place in London.

“He really impressed
me,”
said comedy night promoter Mike Taylor.  “Ryan
came on and literally stole the show.”

Scott Bennett

“An extremely talented and justifiably confident
performer with a neat line in sardonic observational patter, if he’s not an established
name on the UK circuit in the next two years I’ll munch on the lapels of my
favourite suit” A
thony J Brown, Comedian and Comedy promoter
