Liverpool stand up comedians Chris McCausland and Sam Avery aka Learner Parent will each be performing their shows, which are touring nationally, at Southport Comedy Festival in the autumn. Chris McCausland's critically acclaimed show Speaky Blinder refers to the fact that he is blind. His tour has been extended due to exceptional demand, with many dates already sold out. The show is about life, family, and loads of other nonsense as well!

Chris McCausland's ,will be performing Southport Comedy Festival, on Wednesday:- 5, October 2022. Chris has been performing stand up since 2003 and has now become a regular face on British television with multiple appearances on: Have I Got News for You; Would I Lie to You?; Live at the Apollo; QI; 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown; with lots more TV appearances in the pipeline for later this year.

He has spent almost 2 decades travelling the country performing stand up, and has long been firmly established at the very top of the UK's live comedy circuit.

Sam Avery, will be performing on:- Wednesday 12 October 2022. Sam has also been performing stand up comedy since 2003, is the author of the bestseller:- 'Confessions of a Learner Parent.' His blog about life as a twin dad has been featured in the national press and has gone viral around the globe, being translated into over 15 different languages. His latest show Role Model is his 3rd in a series about life as a dad following on from hit shows:- Learner Parent and Toddlergeddon. Sam's twin boys, who have now started School, are looking to him for guidance; it's high time he evolved into the role model he always thought he'd be. But he didn't sleep well last night and being a hero is harder than it looks. Plus, he forgot to put the bins out and now his wife hates him. In this side splitting new stand up show, Sam explores what it means to be a role model in modern Britain, how the people he looked up to shaped his world, and how the struggle to help his kids find their moral compass often causes him to misplace his own. Can you be a role model on 4 hours of sleep? Can you mentor someone who thinks you're a moron? And how do you change the world if you can't even clean your kitchen?

Chris and Sam join an already stellar line up at this year's festival with TV stars Maisie Adam, on Tuesday, 11 October, 2022, and Milton Jones, on Saturday, 8 October, 2022, already on sale and lots more names to be announced over the next few months.
