Jack Kelly & Jimmy Shirley: Pool's Gold

Start your day off with a split hour of standup from two award-entering comedians!

Jack's from Blackpool and Jimmy's from Liverpool...so god knows how these fellas can afford a trip to the world's most expensive arts festival. Perhaps they’ve both inherited a small fortune from a distant, wealthy relative called Aunty Margaret. That’s the backstory they’re going with for this split-show.

Packed with hilarious tales of growing up in the North West and observations of modern day life that are full of ‘extremely well crafted punchlines’.

JACK KELLY has read hundreds of other comedians’ bios and thinks he’s cracked it. It must be written in third person and should sell you his achievements.

Jack was runner up in the prestigious Store’s Favourite Colleague Award when he worked for Sainsbury’s, narrowly beaten by Dennis on checkouts. The back of Jack’s head also once appeared on Channel 5, but this was an uncredited appearance, despite his Mum repeatedly sharing it on Facebook.

He’s also written for BBC Radio 4, is a regular host for the award-winning The Laughienda Comedy Club, and was a Greater Manchester Fringe Comedian Of The Year finalist. But nobody likes a show off.

JIMMY SHIRLEY started his comedy career whilst living abroad in Greece…a whimsical storyteller with high energy, telling tales of the absurdity of a scouser in Greece and the everyday things that annoy him.

He reached the semi-final of So You Think You're Funny and was a Southport New Comedian Of The Year finalist. Jimmy has started to make a name for himself up and down the country, performing on some of the biggest line ups and is definitely ‘one to watch’.
