Jordan Brookes: The Making OfNov 3rd – 7:30pm – 81 Renshaw St

It’s this week! Oh my goodness. Just have a dig around to see how good this champ is.

I honestly believe Jordan will be one of those acts where you were able to say ‘ well I did get to see him in a beautiful back room space of a lovely cafe in Liverpool before you had heard of him…”

You’ll come to this gig and bring a friend and they will never stop thanking you, I can tell you.

Jordan currently features FL fave Kiri Pritchard McLean’s Comedy Short on Sky. It’s a brilliantly dark. Some details here.

Following this we have our Live Chat Show, featuring Liverpool Echo What’s On Comedian of the Year (Will he ever stop going on about it?) Top Joe, Lee Hithersay & Rob Bond.

Also debuting in the new feature – ‘The Hot Spot’ will be Rebecca E Clarke.

All of this for a bargain price if you buy in advance. And it’s still a stonker on the door!

Liverpool born Jordan talks about his triumphant return to his home town…

View this email in your browser

Summer is upon us. But Fringe Autumn is Coming…

It has been a while hasn’t it? I did say I wouldn’t bombard you.
But I have been thinking of you. Often.

There’s just too much to tell you and I am brimming with excitement.
Listen. Let’s grab that coffee sometime? And even if we don’t because of the pace of life that we lead, let’s just think fondly of each other now and again.
Maybe we will meet in the dark in the back room at the fringe event. Perhaps you will sidle up to me look at me and tell me and I am Funny Looking.

But in truth you are Funny Looking.

Volunteers & Help Needed
Funny Looking Fringe needs your help.
Want to be part of the first fringe of the Liverpool Comedy Festival?

We need people who will donate a few hours knowing that a lifetime of regard will be passed their way from myself.

We need-

  • Front of house and ticket support on the nights of the fringe gigs
  • Volunteer technicians to make sure the legends and champions of the fringe can be seen and heard
  • Marketing specialists with the uncanny ability of being able to hand a piece of paper to people on the street. (This is a really key one and just an hour or two of your time will really make a difference to all the acts)
  • Event & Admin support – do you want to be in at the sharp end of making a fringe happen? Are you interested in making events fly? Then we need your help. A few hours of your time getting the message out and helping with promotion online and beyond could be an excellent opportunity if this is something you’ve wanted to do for yourself.
  • Sponsorship – do you know a company, organisation or Internet millionaire who would like to help with this Fringe? As I say we are grassroots but with small amounts we can do a lot – we can get logos onto thousands of flyers and we can get sponsors names in front of readers of finest marketing outlets. This is a genuine request.

Oh and the fact that Funny Looking Live – GOES LIVE!!

Two gigs at an amazing venue in Liverpool, 81 Renshaw St.

And that is the theme of this podcast, the growing hub of alternative, comedy, arts and performance out of this city centre venue.

Chris Jenkins - Top JoeAlastair Clark & the Legion of Doom Alastair Clarke & Becky Webbgentlemen have both been featured in this podcast before and they are joined by Becky Web & Chris Jenkins as they prepare for Ed Fest, Liverpool Comedy Festival and more.

Funny Looking Podcast 18 Phil Ellis & Alastair Clark

Previously on Serial….

It’s nice that a murder mystery has reminded everyone how great podcasts are. If you like Serial you are GUARANTEED to like Funny Looking and you are very welcome.

This episode straddles the two homes of Funny Looking.

Liverpool, the New York of Europe which gave us the greatest band in the world (Space) and also is home to a growing alt comedy scene. Alastair Clark is at the heart of this new generation of funny people and you will learn lots from his interview.

Whilst in Manchester when we’re not listening to The Smiths at the Hacienda drinking Boddingtons, we’re huge fans of Phil Ellis. Someone we loved at 2013’s Edinburgh and who came back in 2014 with a Kids Show that wowed audiences and critics alike. He warms up for his Soho Theatre run with a chat to Funny Looking.

Now you’re done, check out all the links below and spread the word about our humble pod. We really need it. Cheers.
