Bren Riley

"One of the brighter names from the North West .. a great compere." The Guardian
"Irreverent, inventive and most importantly hilarious!" Liverpool Daily Post
"Incredibly refreshing." **** Metro
"Scouse wit and raconteur who holds the show together and doesn’t so much warm up the crowd as set them on fire." Lancashire Evening Post

There’s nothing bland or predictable about this stand-up comic. Brendan’s Liverpudlian accent and lively blend of anecdotes, gags and inspired improvisation brings a refreshing blast of cheerful North Western humour and makes him a much sought after headline act and MC.

Brendan has toured all over the UK and abroad in Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Dubai and many overseas performances for the Ministry of Defence including a tour of Afghanistan in 2014.

He has appeared on Gagging For It (Granada), Funny Business (C4), Stand Up (Granada), Pebble Mill (BBC), Spanking New on 7 (BBCR7), The Next Big Thing (BBC), Men & Motors (Granada TV), The Close Guide (Ch4), BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio Lancashire, BBC Radio Leeds and BBC Radio Merseyside.
