Late Night Laughs: Liam Williams + Mark Cooper-Jones
Missed Edinburgh? This is the best of the fest this September
Liam Williams is a former Cambridge Footlights member who 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. He’s a hench-souled Pilsner socialist, stepping to the stage to talk career, climate, breakup and the 1%. He delivers with marvellous moroseness, fizzing with wit, intelligence and eloquence. His fellow act is Mark Cooper-Jones who loves Geography and used to teach it. He takes his subject extremely seriously, and some people seem to find the very idea of this funny – much to his frustration. This is almost certainly the first time stand-up comedy has succeeded in making audiences regret giving up Geography for GCSE. Nominated for best newcomer in the 2012 Chortle Awards. Over 18s only. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted. This event takes place in the Elgar Room and has cabaret-style unreserved seating. Enter via Door 8 of the Royal Albert Hall. Ticket Face value is £15.00 with £1.30 in fees.
