To anyone visiting Liverpool for the first time, evidence of the ‘wicked’ sense of humour of its inhabitants is immediately evident. The city seems full of people always ready with a witty retort and the ability to make the most of any opportunity that comes their way to demonstrate their natural wit.
There has always been an affinity between sportsmen and entertainers particularly comedians. The great football clubs of Liverpool and Everton over the years have been likened to Schools of Science! If that is the case, the clubs and theatres of this most vibrant of cities can surely be classed as the University Campus of Comedy. For sure many comedy greats have graduated with hours from this background.
Some of its most famous graduates such as Ted Ray – Arthur Askey – Jimmy Tarbuck and perhaps the greatest of them all, the ‘Don’ of comedy, the unique Ken Dodd, have over the years become national comedy icons.
On the corporate and sporting after dinner entertainment scene fast earning the right to stand shoulder to shoulder with these greats of comedy and join the list of comedy greats who took their first faltering strokes in the ‘Pool’ into the world of comedy, is the very talented and very, very funny SEAN STYLES.
