Featuring Markus Birdman, Liam Pickford, Edy Hurst and MC Stephen Bailey.
Markus Birdman’s dad is a real life vicar and his uncle is a bishop. Neither of these facts have any bearing on his comedy whatsoever but we have been booking him for years and he smashes it every single time. And, yes, he is the guy from BGT.
“Made me laugh so hard it hurt”; BBC “Consummate comic” The Stage
Ashton’s very own Liam Pickford once took a show to the Edinburgh Fringe entitled ‘Your Love Is Like A Knackered Bus Stop I Can No Longer Be Arsed To Vandalise’. Need we say more?
“Funny bones, and a scatter gun mind that doesn’t quite work like anybody else’s.” Chortle
Stephen Bailey, (Live at the Apollo, Celebrity Mastermind, Takeshi’s Castle etc). A proud Northern, working class, gay man. Best known as a TV presenter it’s the arena of live stand up comedy where Stephen really shines. Gossipy, bitchy, close to the bone even, but with such an infectious sense of fun everyone gets the joke and no one is left behind.
“Natural talent” Metro; “Rising star” The Sun
The delightfully discordant Edy Hurst is your middle act.
The comedians you see at The Met are booked by Comedy In A Van.
