Live From the Broadchurch

Comedians Alfie Brown, Ahir Shah and Liam Williams visit Unity Theatre during the Labour Party Conference on Tues 27 September.

Three of Britain’s best political stand-up comedians will take to the stage at the Unity Theatre Tue 27 September. Alfie Brown, Ahir Shah and Liam Williams will take to the stage on the final evening of the Labour Party Conference, one of the largest and most high profile political events in Europe, this year taking place in Liverpool.

Alfie Brown’s firebrand style of comedy has been forged from years of pushing boundaries and experimentation. Natural stage presence combined with explosive material makes for a thrilling performance every time he hits the stage.

Winner of the 2014 award for Best Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival, Ahir Shah is an exciting young, sharp and intellectual comedian, whose unique brand of sophisticated stand-up features a blend of emotional frankness, poetic language, and jokes.

Ahir Shah said:

“At a time when the Left in Britain seems intent on tearing itself apart, I thought it would be nice to get three political comedians and Labour members from different strands of the party to come together and put on a night during the conference. We may not necessarily agree with all of one another’s jokes, but we won’t try and get anyone deselected from the line-up. It’s Live From The Broadchurch, and we’re keeping it comradely as fuck. It is absolutely guaranteed to be the funniest event during the Labour Party Conference, amid zero competition.”

Former Cambridge Footlights member, Liam Williams, was nominated for best show at the 2014 Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Awards – a year after he was nominated best newcomer. He came on to the stand-up scene in 2010 when he was a runner-up in the So You Think You’re Funny? new act competition.
