February Line-up: Eddie Fortune, Big Lou & Karen Baylor
Eddie Fortune is a Liverpool based comic described as a comedic Tornado, talking about the woes of dating, work life and the need to stay in shape, he occasionally mistakes himself as a Julia Roberts from pretty woman. His act can be a gag a second or an existential monologue, poem or song. Displaying a contradictory self-deprecating confidence, and heckling the audience with beautiful compliments, Eddie is also a Theatre Producer for Crumbs Theatre, Liverpool. A true performer, from satisfying one liners to terrific five-minute story telling rants!
Lewis, who is also known as Big Lou, is a well-known face on the comedy scene. He has a commanding stage presence matched by his punchlines and timing of their delivery. He has become a favourite on both the comedy circuit and after dinner circuit since he burst on to the scene back in 2010 with his modern twist on old school joke telling. He’s like a cross between Les Dawson and Jimmy Carr! Big Lou has played most of the premier comedy venues in the Northwest and beyond. Big Lou also presents a Tuesday and Saturday Night FM Radio Show. He is a quick witted, laugh a minute, big hearted comedian who will take any audience by storm.
Karen Bayley has a delightfully saucy, friendly and confident stage presence. Add her wit, and infectious giggle along with devastating one-liners, this combined certainly makes her a huge force to be reckoned with. Bayley has been on the professional circuit now for over a decade, performing at only the best comedy clubs across the UK and beyond. Early in her career Karen picked up several awards reaching the final of the coveted BBC New Comedy Awards, and winner of the Komedia new act prize and also reached the finals of the BBC New Comedy Awards Showcase. Karen was also the first ever female winner of the prestigious competition at the Comedy Store – King Gong. Most recently Karen has been supporting Joe Lycett on his UK tour. Her bold, no-nonsense attitude strikes a perfect pitch with men and women alike, and she is equally at home compering or performing sets.
This event is suitable for 18 years+
