Yet another show from the winner of last year’s Foster’s Best Newcomer Award. Barry Award nominee 2014. Triple nominee at the Chortle Awards 2014. What was said about last year’s show…‘Now this is how you do absurd comedy…a bold, hilarious debut…he has forged comedy gold’ (Steve Bennett, Chortle.co.uk). ‘A true comedy original’ (Time Out). ‘Perhaps his finest achievement is that in the course of the whole show, there’s nothing you can actually identify as a joke’ (Guardian). ‘Extremely funny’ (Scotsman). ‘Spike Milligan, Vic and Bob, John Kearns. Say hello to comedy’s latest lunatic’ (Bruce Dessau, BeyondTheJoke.co.uk).

”The best political comedian in the business, Zaltzman lets loose a veritable torrent of jokes, facts, observations, very short stories, silly remarks and inspired asides… Zaltzman is breathtakingly good.” – Time Out
Nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013, Liam Williams gained huge critical acclaim this year for a show of sharp wit that toed the line of bitterness and just cynicism.
He has reached the finals of both the Amused Moose Laugh Off and So You Think You’re Funny, as well as featuring on Russell Howard’s Good News.
On top of his burgeoning stand-up career, Liam is also a member of the sketch group Sheeps, who have won huge critical acclaim the past couple of years in Edinburgh, and can count Daniel Kitson among their many fans.
