Yep, weather permitting it will be outside in the ornate Lawrence Batley courtyard. That’ll be sweet. With a cracking line up as well…….
“Worth the price of the admission alone .. Scouse wit and raconteur who holds the show together and doesn’t so much warm up the crowd as set them on fire” – Lancashire Evening Post
A veteran of the Liverpool, Leicester and Edinburgh Comedy Festivals there’s nothing bland or predictable about this irreverent, inventive and most importantly hilarious stand-up comic. Brendan’s Liverpudlian accent and lively blend of anecdotes, gags and inspired improvisation bring a refreshing blast of cheerful North Western humour to any gig and make him a sought after host and headline act. He’s featured at all of the major comedy venues in the UK as well as appearing in places as far flung as Dubai, Bangkok, Prague, New York, Johannesburg and the Isle of Man TT Races. In 2009 he also performed at the Linz Fest Austria as part of the European capital of culture celebrations. He has presented and written for BBC Radio 4 and Radio 5 Live as well as appearing on ITV’s ‘Gagging For It’ and ‘Funny Business’ and Radio 7’s ‘Spanking New’.
