HEADLINING - REGAN MACNEIL
With an irresistible blend of intelligently written, macabre one-liners and affably delivered, deliciously evil punchlines, Regan MacNeil has risen rapidly through the ranks of the South-West comedy scene and is now a regular fixture at comedy venues across the uK. He has also performed on stages at music festivals around the country such as Download and Boardmasters.
In 2018 he was selected as one of Leicester Comedy Festival's 'Circuit Breakers' and featured in showcase events at the festival, described as "..The chance within the festival to see the stars of the future from the best of emerging UK comedians."
During 2018/19, Regan will be taking his debut show 'Satan's Favourite Comic' to the deepest, darkest depths of the British Isles and beyond.
"Regan has great jokes, he's a natural on stage."
Andrew Lawrence- Live at the Apollo
“He looks hard as f#ck, but in reality he reveals himself as a gentle and eloquent soul who readily draws on his previous life as a body piercer and primary school teacher as well as the tragic break up from the mother of his children. Luckily he’s very funny too.” – Kernow King
“With an alternative but relatable perspective, Regan MacNeil delivers great comedic insights into everyday life, often with dark subject matter and evil punchlines delivered in an unnervingly affable manner. An excellent act with great timing and confidence.”- Comedy Avengers
“Exciting, bearded, eloquent. One to watch!”
- Eminent Banter
"Dark, imaginative, hilarious."- Bobby Mair- Nevermind the Buzzcocks, Russell Howard's Good News
“A great set from Regan MacNeil at Newquay Boardmasters Festival” The West Briton Newspaper

Well, what can we say about Liam? If Stewart Lee, Jack Dee and Morrissey ever had a child together then Liam is who they would call son. Liam started performing stand up in Manchester in June 2012. His unique style is a breath of fresh air to the circuit with Liam has crafted his own unique brand of stand up, mixing cleverly honed material and punchlines with excitingly unpredictable audience interaction. All this, mixed in with a hint of ‘whimsy’ and clever observations whilst delivered in a wonderfully unenthusiastic and grumpy style. Liam has become a circuit favourite and is destined for big things. A highly intelligent writer and fantastic performer who is as capable doing sets and compering. Liam is an act you will want to book time and time again.
