SOLD OUT: Festival Comedy Night – Tony Burgess, Samantha Day and Gordon Southern


Saturday 29 June 2024

Sorry – this event is now SOLD OUT.

Please note – our original scheduled headline act, Danny McLoughlin, is no longer able to appear at this show, but we have secured a fantastic replacement in the form of Tony Burgess.


Once again the Festival Comedy Night features three fabulous comics.

Our headliner Tony Burgess is an award winning stand-up comedian, comedy writer and actor based in Manchester. As well as performing stand-up all over the UK for over 25 years – he’s also written sitcoms for the BBC, plays for The Royal Exchange Theatre and written for many big name comedians such as Steve Coogan, John Bishop, and Johnny Vegas.

“Great, well crafted gags” – The Times

“Finds the comic and absurd in sometimes difficult situations” – The Big Issue

For nearly thirty years, Samantha Day was an accountant.  A click on LinkedIn will reveal that for once this isn’t even a lie.  She gave it up when, despite her best efforts, she only managed to sleep her way to the middle.

She is 55, but looks younger because she’s had a lot of work done.   Some people have said that that makes her a bad feminist.  They don’t know the half of it!

‘Warm, engaging, raw and very, very funny.’– Crazy Bird Comedy Club

‘Always has our audiences in stitches, spouting words of wisdom and self-improvement – whether wanted or not!’ – Flock Comedy Club

Comedy Store King Gong  – Winner (2022)

Completing the lineup is Gordon Southern – one of the most sought after headline acts on the UK and international circuit. Gordon regularly plays to sell-out audiences at the most prestigious clubs in the country including London’s Comedy Store and Jongleurs. His upbeat and energetic delivery combined with his fantastically funny observational comedy and quick witted improvisation has secured his place as an audience favourite. A highly regarded international act, he’s worked in many exotic and challenging places, including Afghanistan, The Arabian Desert, Falkland Islands, Kosovo and Liverpool!

‘Guaranteed to make you laugh’  – The Australia Times

‘Hugely talented. Very funny.’ – Time Out

‘Top class all round.’  – The Sunday Times


The show will be compered by long time Lymm favourite, Rob Riley.
