Stand up for Labour at the Labour Party Conference, Liverpool

Labour Conference gig facebookStand up for Labour holds its sixth Labour Party Conference show, featuring some of our favourite acts and two guest speakers.

With constituencies from all over the country being invited as well as local Labour activists, this is bound to be a heartwarming night out for all Labour supporters.

The night takes place in a purpose-built comedy club, Hot Water Comedy Club (45 Hardman Street, Liverpool L1 9AS), which is in the heart of the city (five minutes from the train station, behind the university and opposite the Liverpool Philharmonic).

Performing on the night are:

Barbara Nice, one of the best live acts on the comedy circuit. She can transform a room of sedate individuals into a congregation of disco divas. Whether it's stage diving or a game of statues, you don't know what to expect with Barbara Nice - except that you will laugh yourself silly.

Gerry Potter, a poet, playwright, director and actor from Liverpool, whose poems include 'Love fought the law and the Law Lost' (a tribute to the Hillsborough campaigners) and 'My Scouse Voice'.

Sir Ian Bowler, a fake Tory MP, whose act has gone down a storm at Stand up for Labour shows all over the country. His act is an hilarious mix of one liners, poems and painful, personal anecdotes.

Steve Gribbin, a top guitarist and singer who has combined his musical skills to topical humour for over 30 years. Steve is another act who has been very well received at Stand up for Labour shows all over the country.

Theresa May Cabaret, a comic burlesque act, performed by Lolly Jones. Made her debut in Theresa May's own constituency of Maidenhead and has gone on to perform in Bristol, Bournemouth, Manchester and Ipswich. Very funny and rather shocking.

Guest speakers on the night include prolific and inspiring video blogger the Artist Taxi Driver and Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, John McDonnell MP.

The night is hosted by Crispin Flintoff, who set up Stand up for Labour in 2013 and has now organised over 250 shows in England, Scotland and Wales.

The night includes liquid prizes, a raffle and plenty of opportunity to meet new and old friends.

Unfortunately the venue is not accessible to anyone using a wheelchair and is down some stairs. We are very sorry that we were not aware of this earlier.
