Goosfest Buzz Comedy Night
Goosfest ‘Buzz Comedy’ Nights are legendary and only the best is good enough for Goosfest. Contributors in previous have included Sarah Millican and John Bishop. This year we have another group of comedians who are also on their way to becoming household names.
Headlining this year is Sam Avery. Apparently he wanted to be a rock star and apparently it nearly happened. His subsequent jobs included a brief stint as a stockbroker before he went the way of all flesh and turned to stand-up. Friendly and enthusiastic his observational style regales audiences with his tales of everyday life. Sam has gained a reputation for being able to spark the dullest of rooms to life with his warm humour and quick wit.
”One of Liverpool’s best loved comedians” LIVERPOOL ECHO
“Likeably irreverent” DAILY POST
“Works the crowd with verve and confidence…you could scarcely ask for a better act” GIGGLE & FUNK”
Steven Cookson is our middle act and has significant form in the comedy stakes as he is a previous winner in the World One Liner Championship (2019) and winner of the 2017 ‘King Gong’ competition at the Comedy store Manchester. This guy is seriously funny.
“Deadpan one-liners that were perfectly executed and written. Had one lady hyperventilating and begging for him to stop. The quality of this man’s gags are up there with Milton Jones and Gary Delaney” Bryan Malcolm (The Haha Club)
Lindsey Santoro hails from Birmingham and she recounts tales of her misadventures in life, all in her trademark down to earth side-splitting style.
Joy Lycett says of her ….“One of the most naturally hysterical and gifted comedians in recent memory”
Alex Boardman is now one of the most sought-after acts in the country due to his ability to interact with any audience and to seemingly conjure something out of nothing. His free-flowing style and natural charm breeze through in performances. His unique brand of “Flattery and Abuse” is done with a lack of malice and a big sense of fun.
“Alex Boardman was one of a small band of writers who worked on the second series of John Bishop’s Britain on BBC 1 and he made a significant contribution to it being the highest rated stand up show of 2011 bringing in six million viewers a week. He can turn material around quickly and has the great skill of enhancing existing ideas to make a show better rather than just wishing to force his own material which makes him a great collaborator” John Bishop
“A great comic and a skilled writer” – Sarah Millican
“Very Funny, a rare mixture of wit and charm” – The Guardian
“Improvised witticisms from the acerbic Mancunian. A veteran of the Madchester phenomenon, his loved-up reminisces and tall tales can lead anywhere on any given night.” – The Times
“Call the cops, double funny” – Shaun Ryder (Happy Mondays)
