Simon Wozniak 

Joe Zalias 

George Rigden 

Damion Larkin (MC)

Southport’s very own top comedian headline LOL Comedy Club at The Atkinson This Saturday.

Simon Wozniak is a scouse comedian who has had a meteoric rise through the bowels of the comedy industry making it now to headline all the major comedy clubs all over the UK with his charming  yet hard hitting style. He’s still typically modest and says about himself  ”

Not much to say really. I have two pairs of jeans for all purposes, work and recreation, mix and match. I’m a part-time contact lens wearer, full-time glasses wearer. I’ve got no thigh gap and I still drink Capri-Suns at the age of 26.”

Winner – Nottingham Comedy Festival Act of the Year

“Funny guy, natural talent”

“Very funny”

Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights

Joe Zalias has been learning the stand up comedy craft for over ten years and his hard work has certainly paid off as his memorable stage performances have seen him entertaining audiences nationally and internationally.   A devoted father, comedian, author and actor are only an insight into Joe’s extensive talents.  His life has been somewhat exciting and fascinating as he has ventured down various paths, including cage fighting,  assisting a crime organisation and working as a firefighter.   Joe’s life experiences have enabled him to put pen to paper and write two successful crime novels. Having such a varied life, Joe has projected his experiences through dark and cutting humour, which have led him to supporting established comedy acts like Bill Bailey and Tom Stade on their tours. Here is a stand up comedian with a wide range of talent, which is why Joe’s CV is extremely impressive – he has the following TV and performing credits…

  • Wannabees ITV
  • Britain at Dinner BBC
  • Presenter for Spike TV

Having excelled in a host of new act competitions in his first year, George Rigden made his Edinburgh debut in 2015 when he performed as part of the prestigious AAA Stand Up Late showcase at the Pleasance Courtyard for a full sell-out run. He returned to Edinburgh again in 2016, again as part of an established and respected showcase (The Lunchtime Special at The Tron) and splitting an hour with fellow up-and-comer Jake Lambert. “Rigden is the result of a genetic mash-up between Mitch Benn and Tim Key, perhaps with a few strands of Ricky Gervais’s DNA thrown in…Very Funny Stuff.” Chortle “Rigden’s musical comedy is deliciously dark…he is very good at working the crowd and of all tonight’s acts he probably made the biggest impression.” Beyond The Joke “George Rigden had the audience in his hands thanks to some great comedic timing, a little help from his guitar and a hint of David Mitchell in Peep Show” Leicester Mercury


Damion Larkin will often improvise his entire set to hilarious effect. There are no genuine comparisons to this man. He is a versatile and creative comedian who always leaves audiences wanting more. “Industrious in rotating his material…which is warmly and intelligently told”  Chortle “One of the country’s top new acts” BBC (this was years ago so now he’s just one of the country’s comedians! haha)
