Stand-up Comedy

Headliner: Steve Royle
Steve Royle is a regular headline act at The Comedy Store, and has performed alongside Steve Coogan and Peter Kay on numerous occasions. He toured with Dave Spikey on his Overnight Success tour. Steve is also co-founder of the Slaughterhouse Live character comedy nights. The group took the Edinburgh Fringe Festival by storm with sell out shows and rave reviews for two years running.

Support: Hayley Ellis
A regular MC at gigs around the country, Hayley’s natural warmth and girl-next-door charm make her impossible to dislike, something which has become evident in her success in new act competitions throughout the UK. Hayley has also become a regular sight gag contributor for the Russell Howard’s Good News television programme.

Support: Allan Finnegan
Minister by day, comedian by night. This Mersey Baptist minister found the perfect way to deal with church hecklers by becoming a stand-up comedian. Reverend Allan Finnegan is a pastor at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Netherton and admits he has occasionally had to deal with the odd heckler interrupting his services. But those hecklers should think again as Allan is now leaving audiences in stitches as a stand-up comedian.
