Adam Staunton

Adam Staunton

A confident and demanding stage presence has seen scouse funnyman Adam Staunton perform alongside some of the biggest names in comedy, including John Bishop and Sarah Millican

A sharp wit and a smart eye for the funny, combined with a confident and demanding stage presence has seen Adam flourish since first taking to the stage.

Having performed as part of Big Value Comedy Show during the Edinburgh Festival in 2012 he has gone on to regularly perform at some of the most established clubs in the country.

“what he lacks in height he certainly makes up for in talent, getting the biggest laughs of the night” - Three Weeks

“a thoughtful performer of smiles and warmth with flecks of disdain; he’s quick-thinking, with effortless confidence” - The Skinny


Liam Pickford

Liam Pickford

Well, what can we say about Liam? If Stewart Lee, Jack Dee and Morrissey ever had a child together then Liam is who they would call son. Liam started performing stand up in Manchester in June 2012. His unique style is a breath of fresh air to the circuit, with Liam crafting his own unique brand of stand up, mixing cleverly honed material and punchlines with excitingly unpredictable audience interaction. All this, mixed in with a hint of ‘whimsy’ and clever observations whilst delivered in a wonderfully unenthusiastic and grumpy style.

Liam has performed all over the UK and has appeared at numerous festivals including ‘Latitude’, ‘2000 Trees’ and ‘Cockrock’. In 2015, Liam performed his debut solo show ‘Seaside Cock Novelties’ to a sold out audience at the Liverpool Comedy Festival and then Liam returned in 2016 with his new solo show ‘Your Love Is Like A Knackered Bus Stop I Can No Longer Be Arsed To Vandalise’ which he also took to the Nottingham Comedy Festival that same year, and is available to buy on BandCamp.

“He’s got funny bones, and a scattergun mind that doesn’t quite work like anybody else’s” - Chortle


Lee Kyle

Lee Kyle

In his never ending quest not to have a proper job, Lee Kyle spent time as part of an all male Spice Girls tribute act before spending a decade as a professional wrestler.

Managing the difficult trick of being both odd and relatable, he did a show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013 that he heard was well received but he doesn't read reviews because his psyche is too fragile to handle them so he isn't totally sure what they said.

Armed with props and a rapid gag rate he cuts a confident, if off-beat figure on stage. His jokes veer between the clever and the silly and deliver more than their fair share of belly laughs.

“Had everyone on their feet - Sublimely ridiculous” - The Northern Echo

“A brilliant performance.. Pure genius!” - NARC Magazine

“Quirky and original - the highlight of the night” - Giggle Beats
