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.

FLP 21 – Liverpool Goes to Ed Fringe 2015 & Liverpool Comedy Festival Special 2015 01

It is Funny Looking Podcast 21 and due to total collapse of organisational skill on Gav’s behalf – Pete isn’t here again…

But we do have some old and new friends.

Once again we are excited to announce that we are the ‘Official’ Podcast of the Liverpool Comedy Festival 2015, beating off the dozens of other Liverpool based podcasts we know.

We will be bringing you previews and chats with artists, legends and heroes from across the whole festival.

But that is not yet…

There is a smal matter of the Edinburgh Comedy Festival to go.

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.

FLP 16 Liverpool Comedy Festival Special 02 Geins Family Giftshop & James Acaster

Can you believe it? A second podcast in just over a week?

We thought we would help lift the post Ed Fringe gloom with a sharp focus on the upcoming:

Continuing from the smashers of the last podcast we have two great chats and some tip top steer for you.

Ed is the 2nd quarter of Geins Family Giftshop after Kiri last time. (Maybe we should always have a member of GFG on?) Recorded at the very start of the festival he sounds as fresh as a daisy!

Now book a ticket here:

And watch their twisted YouTube channel for screams and giggles:

We have been fans of James Acaster for a while now, can you hear it in Petes voice? Fresh after a Salford preview, we solidly resisted asking about cabbaging. See you there?

At the time of publishing they are both Fosters Comedy Award nominees. Good luck to all!

Tucked in the middle of these chats is a location report from Gav on what could be his favourite Museum ever. And it is only going to get better!

Our other reccomendies included:

Funny Looking Pod 15 – Liverpool Comedy Special 01 Sam Avery & Kiri Pritchard-McLean

Well hello!

And if you are new to Funny Looking Podcast.

Well Hello!

We are very excited to be part of the Liverpool Comedy Festival and are very much looking to bringing you great chats with the top acts you can see throughthat famously indistinct period of late September, early October.

This is the first of a special run and we are already excited about the next one too – you lucky people.

The artistic director of the festival Sam Avery gives us his route into comedy and a glimpse of what is to come.

Kiri Pritchard-McLean, standup and writer, (the non performing quarter of Geins Family giftshop) tells us of her intriguingly titled show and double bill night. This will be a real treat.

Get on the site. Book some tickets and get in touch with your own top tips too.
