Bedwyr Williams and Simon Munnery Liverpool Comedy Festival and Liverpool Biennial Double Bill

Simon Munnery ("The fringiest Fringe experience of 2011" Guardian) will be devising new material specifically for the Liverpool Biennial and Liverpool Comedy Festival. A Chortle Innovation Award winner, he has been described as "nothing less than a genius" by the Guardian and "A true original" by The Scotsman.

Welsh artist Bedwyr Williams provides the second half of this unique double bill with his tale of Emlyn from North Wales who visits Liverpool to research a branch of his family tree and how things turn nasty for him at the microfiche machine. We will hear about the cousins who hold their breath whilst travelling through the Mersey tunnels, the melancholy Ellen and a thuggish man who insists on being called ‘Half Uncle’.

"Marvellously talented and –unusually for contemporary art – very funny," Observer
