Liverpool has a history for producing some of the countries finest comedy talent, and Jamie Sutherland can now be added to that fine list.
A headline act on the comedy circuit, working for some of the countries finest clubs including Sheffield Last Laugh, Jongleurs, and Comedy Central. Jamie is also a corporate hospitality MC at Everton FC, for all their home games. A very original act, who will keep you amused with gags, tales, and stories. Jamie is a modern act, with many observational topics, and up to date material, and don’t worry if you prefer a good old style gag, he has plenty of them thrown in, ensuring a performance that will touch everyone’s buttons.
Jamie is one of only a few comics that can tailor his performance to suit your audience, extremely popular with corporate clients, and he’s equally at home performing to crowds at his nearby sports club.
He has supported some of the biggest names in comedy, and has gained a reputation as one of the rising stars of comedy with the sell out crowds, and his fellow comedians.
Jamie has taken his show into Europe, entertaining the masses of holidaymakers, and in 2008 he stretched as far as Sydney, Australia.
“Undeniably brilliant” Liverpool Echo
“Sutherland combines the two style of observational and story telling, and really is very funny” The Stage
As well as stunning good looks, Steve has a marvellous sense of humour, as that last sentence proves. He’s an actor, writer, comedian, juggler, and a “Gillard Award” winning presenter on BBC Radio Lancashire. His Saturday morning 9am til 11am show means he is now a treat for both cochlea and cornea alike.
Steve most recently performed 16 nights at The Manchester Arena as part of the “Phoenix Nights Live” show, helping raise well over £5million in the process. He also appeared at the London Palladium twice within a month last year when he performed as part of the TV show “Sunday Night At The Palladium” and as warm-up for “One Night With Neil Diamond”. Steve’s TV credits include “Phoenix Nights”, “Max And Paddy’s Road To Nowhere”, “Peter Kay’s Britain’s Got The Pop Factor…”, “Stand-up Britain”, “Give Your Mate A Break”, “The Afternoon Show”, “Talk Of The North”, a “Real Radio” advert. He is also a favourite on the live circuit and a regular headline act at The Comedy Store.
His acting credits include roles in “The Things You Do For Love” and “Magnolia”, and despite being one of the North West’s healthiest males, a medical insurance commercial for “Medicash”. He was also featured on the Granada Programme “Behind The Scenes” and “That’s Entertainment” (with Cannon and Ball) and was voted “Entertainer of the Year” at the inaugural Red Rose Awards.He spent many years as “Special Guest” on Dave Spikey’s Tours and has supported several other top comedic names including Peter Kay, Mick Miller, Roy Walker and The Lancashire Hotpots! He was also the first comic, ever, to act as “Warm-up” for The Royal Variety Show featuring Take That, Rod Stewart, Barry Manilow and Meatloaf.
He is also a regular Television “warm-up” for programs such as “The Rob Brydon Show”, “A Question Of Sport”, “Mastermind” and has done over 150 episodes of “The Price is Right”. Steve’s first love, however, is Stand-Up and it is a job that has taken him all over the world: Cruises in the Med, Norwegian Fjords and the Caribbean, hotels and comedy clubs in Hong Kong, Dubai, Crete, Japan and Egypt. For over 12 years Steve could be found in the guise of “Mad Edgar” the court jester at Camelot theme park where he presented over 2000 “Crazy Juggling Shows”. Steve has appeared in pantomime every year for the last 18 seasons, 13 of them at The Blackpool Grand Theatre.
Steve is also co-founder of the “Slaughterhouse-Live” (“Laughter” with an “S”) character comedy nights. They have taken the Edinburgh Festival Fringe by storm with sell out shows and rave reviews. They won the “Best Comedy Show” award at The Brighton Fringe Festival and were runners-up in the “best touring show” category at the Manchester Comedy Awards and still appear regularly at The Comedy Store, Manchester. (Check out their hilarious website on www.slaughterhouse-live.com).
