Gary Skyner to perform in Millom – The Mail
A LEGENDARY comedian from Liverpool is to play at Millom Workies.
Gary Skyner has been on the stand-up circuit for more than 25 years and won the ‘Merseyside Comedian of the Year’ three years running. He has performed at the Grosvenor House in London, and the Central Pier in Blackpool. He appeared in Jonathan Ross’s late 1990s Big Big Talent Show on ITV. He has also done campaigning work along with his comedic talent.
Gary was one of the first people to be affected by the Thalidomide medical disaster of the 1950s and 60s. Earlier this year a play, called Mother’s Ruin, was put on at the Hope Street Theatre about Gary’s life as a disabled child in Toxteth.
His comedy style is described as ‘quick-witted and rather risque at times’ on his booking website, and the poster for his performance at Millom Workies says it will be ‘an evening of adult humour and entertainment. He will perform on Friday October 21 at 8.30 pm.
