Comedy star Silky is playing a warm-up gig for his Edinburgh Festival show Indoor Fireworks at The Lescar in Sheffield next week.
Silky’s fourth ever stand-up gig was the televised 1995 BBC New Comedy Awards Final.
This is not typical in comedy, but Silky is no typical comedian.
For two decades, he’s been charming audiences worldwide with his Liverpudlian lilt and unrivalled wordsmithery.
Silky deftly combines sharp, smart stand-up comedy with daft songs and impeccable guitar playing, and has received accolades.
One of Silky’s greatest skills is reading his audience.
Years of compering have taught him how to improvise and tailor shows to the feel of the room.
No two audiences are the same, so no two shows will be the same.
His Sheffield gig is on Thursday, July 21, call 0114 2668974 or go to www.thelescarhuntersbar.co.uk for details.
