A belter. Liam Withnail has a "tale to tell" this year. His club friendly writing and constantly grafting stagecraft means that you are fully involved in the emotional and political rollercoaster.


Join the gifted comic storyteller with over 10million TikTok and Instagram views as he battles chronic illness and hilariously reckons with his new reality during a hospital stay. This enlightening stand-up show about how we adapt when life throws a curveball takes audiences on a rollercoaster of laughter and packs an emotional punch. Winner: Amused Moose Award for Outstanding Show 2019 and Scottish Comedy Award. Finalist of both Scottish and English Comedian of the Year. 'Consistently hysterical' ***** (TheWeeReview.com). 'A natural talent for comedy. One of the most complete and affirming shows I've seen' ***** (EdFestMag.com).
