Mighty Boosh & Lee Mack at LOL Comedy Club Southport

23rd November 2017

Liverpudlian-in-exile Silky has always been hilarious. At only his fourth ever gig he was on BBC1 in the final of the 1995 BBC New Comedy Awards alongside Lee Mack (Mock The Week, Not Going Out) and Julian Barratt (Mighty Boosh). He’s an award winning act coming runner-up in Leicester Mercury Comedian of The Year and had been Nominee Liverpool Echo Arts and Entertainment Award twice.

Silky has performed internationally, including gigs in China, the Philippines, the Gulf, Singapore, the US, the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and all over Europe, including at the Glastonbury Festival. He also headlined the inaugural Frampton Mansell comedy festival, the world’s smallest and does warm-up work for BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Other television appearances include ‘The Stand-Up Show’ (BBC1), ‘James Campbell’s Silly Experiment’ (SO TV/Disney Worldwide), ‘Coronation Street’ and ‘Gagging for It’ (Granada), The Loafers (BBC Digital), ‘Hollyoaks’ and ‘Brookside’ (Mersey TV), ‘Heartbeat’ and ‘Rhinoceros’ (Yorkshire TV), Sky TV, The Superchannel (Denmark) and Channel 6.

“Left me with aching stomach muscles, teary eyes and a need to buy more anti-wrinkle cream for the laughter lines around my eyes” BBC

The guitar posturing, electric tennis racket playing chameleon of comedy, Pierre Hollins, has spent years crafting his laugh out loud sets and has been an audience favourite on the comedy circuit for many years. He has a stage presence and delivery style that is the envy of many of his peers and he still appears as fresh today as the day he started.

He has headlined at clubs throughout the UK, Europe, The Middle East and Asia and also has numerous TV writing experiences such as for Bodger and Badger (CBBC) and Waking Up With Winona (Disney Channel).

Appearing alongside many a comedy legend in his time such as Alixei Sayle, Hugh Lorrie and Stephen Fry. This compelling act has to be seen to understand just how funny it is!!!

Often cited as the unsung hero for comedy, the gods bow down at Hollins’ guitar hero feet and after you’ve seen him you will too so be prepared for this comedy veteran to hit you with some effortlessly flippant rock and roll comedy.
