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…
