Click here and add your email address and enter the draw.

Finally if you just have to have one of our logos printed on a T-shirt, pair of leggings, or even a cushion, you can go to our red bubble store and support as that way. (Though it’s a bit expensive and then they sting you for postage so look out for the days when there are discounts)
(Basically, by a mug)

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.

Follow Sam Avery here:

And Kiri Pritchard-McLean here:

Give them some love and tell them we sent you. (Sounds creepy)

Finally we cannot recommend you get into Funny Looking Live on Spreaker:
