Raymond Mearns headlines Southport Comedy Club (Feb 6)



Saturday 6 February 2016 8.00pm

Starring: Raymond Mearns, Adam Staunton, Micky P Kerr, Damion Larkin (MC) 


Raymond Mearns is not only outright hilarious he is also a BAFTA nominated actor and one of the leading lights of Scottish comedy. His list of TV and film credits is as long as your arm (including BBC2’s “Rab C Nesbitt”) and he’s regarded not only as one of the top acts in Scotland but also in the UK comedy industry as a whole. He holds the prestigious honour of having been chosen to represent Glasgow at the both the New York Comedy Festival and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Raymond even went on tour with Pete Doherty doing support slots until Doherty was jailed! He also has a deserved reputation for being one of the few comedians around who is just as funny when making stuff up off the top of his head as he is when doing material. As a result, we’re lucky he’s agreed to come and perform for us as he is in hot demand around the globe!

“Every line that issues from this man is funny” Chortle

“A Genuine Improvisational Genius” Frankie Boyle

Adam Staunton is young, small and scally and more than capable of bringing the house down.  A sharp mixture of eagle-eyed observation and simmering self-deprecation has so far endeared to growing audiences far and wide. Always hilarious, Staunton’s not a household name just yet but is a sure fire bet for the next big thing.

“What he lacks in height he certainly makes up for in talent and laughs”  Three Weeks

“The writing is sharp, the observations sparkle” Fringe Review

Micky P Kerr is a breath of fresh air on the live comedy circuit. Fusing together music, spoken word and comedy, with his tongue often planted firmly in his cheek, Kerr has been described as the bastard spawn of cult comedy poet John Cooper Clarke.

Already a familiar face on the live music circuit, Micky is rapidly becoming one to watch, proving to be a massive hit with audiences and bookers alike. Already an award winning comic Micky is performing regularly for many of the biggest comedy promoters in the UK, recording a live set for BBC Radio 1, working on a new sitcom about his previous life as a primary school teacher and recording his latest album of music and comedy. He’s a busy boy and much in demand as one with his rich array of talents should be!

“Full of surprises and a much-loved favourite” Kendal Calling Festival
