This week's comedy in Liverpool

By Vicky Anderson on Feb 2, 10 04:54 PM

So who's coming to see us in Liverpool this week? Not Phill Jupitus, but definitely Nathan Barley


In the clubs: Steve Royle, Susan Murray, Eddy Brimson & R David play Rawhide at the Royal Court on Friday and Saturday, February 5 and 6 (Steve Royle and R David confirmed for Thursday night as well) - and don't forget amateur night Rawhide Raw, tonight and every Tuesday at Baa Bar on Myrtle Street.

Over at the Slaughterhouse (Fenwick Street) and sister venue Slug and Lettuce (North John Street, a tried and tested line up of Keith Carter as Nige (pictured) and Gary Delaney entertain on Friday and Saturday. Neil Fitzmaurice is the host with the most at the former club.


Meanwhile at Comedy Central (Baby Blue, Albert Dock), you've got compere Chris Cairns bringing you the comic stylings of New Zealander Benjamin Crellin (see clip), Chris Stokes and Dean Scurry Thursday through Saturday.

In theatreland, Ghost Stories by League of Gentlemen writer Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman opens on Thursday (Feb 4, until Feb 20). As explained last week it's not a comedy, but with Nathan Barley actor Nick Burns in the cast it's sure got the pedigree. Well Mexico.

Funny Money, a Scousified version of the Ray Cooney farce, is on at the Liverpool Royal Court now until the end of February.

In other news...

A couple of weeks ago we were (kind of) excited to hear Buzzcocks captain Phill Jupitus would be playing Edna Turnblad in the production of Hairspray coming to the Liverpool Empire in the summer. The mind boggled. Sadly, he's had to pull out of the dates and will be replaced by Sinbad himself, Michael Starke.

Finally, don't miss Adam (of Adam and Joe fame) Buxton trying to see the funny side of his involvement in The Pursuasionists, one of the most truly appalling sitcoms to grace the screen in quite some time:
