About Ian Kenyon - known as The Huyton Poet...

I have been writing poetry for over 30 years, I began performing Stand Up comedy on stage in 2008 and combined my poetry with the comedy around 2011. I’ve had poems published in local and national press as well as having over 500 poems broadcast on my local BBC radio (Radio Merseyside) along with a regular live monthly spots. My speaking performance work is based on amusing conversation and my funny poems.

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.

The Rhymes and Ramblings of a Performance Poet / Comedian

As well as performing at speaking engagements I write poems and comedy ideas for other entertainers including the great Ken Dodd. I was “discomnockerated” when Ken Dodd commissioned a series of poems from me for him to use on his national tour.
As a successful Stand Up Comedian and Performance Poet I have appeared at Theatres and clubs throughout the North of England Appeared on both  BBC2 & BBC4 TV shows “Scouser’s telling Jokes” in 2013 & 2014
I also had the great honour of performing in front of Ken Dodd, Jimmy Cricket, Freddy “Parrot Face” Davies and about 120 other comedians and celebrities at a recent “Good Turns Society” luncheon.
