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.

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:

Sofie Hagan and her podcast of comedians stories:


The touring bravery that is Setlist:


And the brilliant stand up of Eddie Pepitone:


It might be a couple of weeks till the next one but get looking and booking, following and sharing. Say hello to us and tell a friend?
