Sam Avery – Rock’N’Dole 19th October

Who are you?

My name is Sam Avery. I’m a 33-year-old toddler from Liverpool. This is my début solo show which I plan to take to the Edinburgh Fringe next summer.

What’s your show about?

My show is about my short forage into the music industry as a feckless 17-year-old with delusions of grandeur. We were really lucky to get a record deal when we were still in school, so the show looks at our supposed journey to stardom as naïve teenagers who didn’t have a clue. Did we get there? That would be telling, but the fact my tickets are a mere £5 in a 40 seater venue and not £45 in a ten thousand seater might give you a clue! Anyone who’s ever been in a band or is a music fan will hopefully enjoy this show.

Is this the first time you’ve played in Manchester?

First time in the Festival proper – I did the City Life Comedian of the Year final in 2005 but I didn’t win so it’s hardly worth mentioning. I’ve gigged in Manchester on a regular basis since I started comedy.

How long have you been doing comedy?

Properly since 05, but only really taken it seriously since 07.

What are the 3 funniest words in the English language?

Blamanche. Glockenspiel. Boff.

Anything else you want to add?

If anyone has every followed their dream and failed, you will enjoy my show. I also like the press quote below.
