Stand-up Comedy

Headline: Sam Avery

Sam Avery wanted to be a rock star.  It nearly happened.

Despite being signed up by BMG Records at the age of 17 (he had to resign from his beloved paper round), and subsequent tours with Motorhead and Ice T, the story soon took a familiar turn.  Contracts were annulled, money was stolen, and before he knew it he was back at the paper shop asking for his fluorescent bag back. He had crap hair anyway.

Subsequent jobs (including a brief stint as a stockbroker) failed to excite him the way the smell of sweat and snakebite had, and it wasn’t long before he turned to stand-up.

Friendly and enthusiastic, his observational style instantly puts audiences at ease allowing him to regale them with his tales of everyday life. Sam has gained a reputation for being able to spark the dullest of rooms into life with his warm, infectious humour and a quick wit which makes him ideal as a compere.

He was part of the Just the Tonic Big Value Show at the Edinburgh Fringe throughout August 2009.

One of Liverpool’s best loved comedians” 

Chris Washington
Chris began performing stand -up comedy in July 2012, and now after a few hundred gigs for a host of reputable promoters up and down the country, he is fast becoming one of the most sought -after acts on the circuit. With a cheeky Northern charm and laugh out loud tales, it’s clear to see why Chris is flying up the comedy ladder.

“Royal Mail’s own Chris Washington is naturally funny and posts top quality comedy with a first class delivery”  Agraman, Buzz Comedy

The Discount Comedy Checkout
The comedy is creative and crude, quick and quirky,  the performers commit completely to the games and create funny and fantastic characters at a moment’s notice.

“Comedy checkout are simply the best improv group I’ve ever seen live.”  Phil Walker, Comedian

Compere: Dave Twentyman
Effortlessly funny and quick on his feet, Dave Twentyman endears himself to the toughest of audiences as an act or a compere.

After being recommended by Alan Carr, he became a regular guest on BBC Radio Manchester and XFM for a number of years.

Travelling around the UK and beyond, Dave has built a reputation as a consistently great act with his cheeky, chatty style, delivering light-hearted gags and stories you can’t help relating to.

“Superb, naturally funny”  The Hyena
