Southport Comedy Festival has announced yet another big name for this year’s festival in association with Halliwell Jones MINI.

Comedy legend Mick Miller will be performing at the festival on Tuesday 1st October 2024.

For more details visit: southportcomedyfestival.com 

One of our most treasured entertainers Mick has been at the top of his game for over 40 years. Often referred to as “The bald guy with the long hair,” Mick first came to prominence in the 70’s on the iconic ITV show ‘The Comedians’.  

In the 1980s, Mick co-hosted his own Saturday evening show on ITV The Funny Side along with Cheryl Baker and the late Mike Smith. 

Thanks to shows such as Des O’Connor Tonight, he has appeared on TV every year since The Comedians.

Mick remains as relevant and funny today, he is one of the few comedians of his generation who has made the transition onto the alternative circuit, creating a younger fan base along the way. He also remains as busy as ever working all over the world. In October 2017, he realised one of his lifelong ambitions, performing to a packed house and receiving a standing ovation at one of the iconic Las Vegas venues as part of the ITV series ‘Last Laugh in Vegas’.

Mick has also landed several acting roles to include Ideal with Johnny Vegas, and Peter Kay’s Car Share. He has also made appearances on shows such as John Bishop’s Only Joking and Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford and They Think It’s All Over.

This will be a masterclass in stand-up comedy not to be missed.

Tickets for Mick’s show go on sale on Monday 10th June 2024 at 10am. Tickets are £15.
