About Ian Kenyon - known as The Huyton Poet...
I began performing Stand Up comedy on stage in 2008 and a few years later – on my wife’s advice, I combined my humorous poetry with the comedy routines and it worked a treat. I’ve had poems published in local and national press as well as having over 900 poems broadcast on my local BBC radio (Radio Merseyside) along with a regular live spot. My speaking performance work is based on amusing conversation, observation and my funny poems. I have performed in theatres throughout the North on England.
I wrote funny poems and comedy pieces for the late Sir Ken Dodd and I also performed with him on a number of his theatre shows. I have had repeat bookings for every venue and social group I have performed at or for.
Laughter from start to finish.
About my presentations...
My performance lasts 45 to 60 minutes (longer if required) and I use a small single speaker (if it is needed) – so I just need a power supply.
My fee is £85 within 20 miles of my home in Huyton, Merseyside – L36. If the venue is further afield, I charge travelling expenses @ 20p per mile
