Hurrah! Reckless Comedy is back on Monday 2nd May 2011 at Robbins’ Well in Leamington Spa. For this run of shows, we have a whole series of Edinburgh previews lined up. What this means is, as well two or three of your regular acts doing ten-minute bits and trying stuff out, the second half of the show will be handed over to one of the many brilliant acts we have booked, who will treat you to an early version of the whole show they intend to take up to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year.
You’ll literally be one of the first people to see the shows that all the critics will be talking about in August. Acts previewing with us in the coming weeks included Tom Binns (creator of Ivan Brackenbury, the hospital radio DJ), Matthew Crosby (from Pappy’s) and Nathan Caton (has his own BBC Radio 4 series starting in December).
But for our first show we have the brilliant Liam Mullone. A nine-year veteran of the comedy circuit, Liam has appeared on the BBC New Comedy Awards as a finalist, ITV’s Take The Mic, and also on BBC Radio 4’s 28 Acts in 28 Minutes. He writes for ITV1, Radio 1 and Radio 4 including for The Now Show and The Smith Lectures.

Liam Mullone: Down to the Bone
Islam. Gaza. Racism. The NHS. The Suzuki Alto GLS. Against the advice of his friends, Leicester’s own Liam Mullone attempts to discuss ALL the subjects best avoided at a middle-class dinner party – or a comedy festival.
