Liam Farrelly is a 21-year-old up-and-coming Scottish comedian from
Paisley, who started performing stand-up aged 17 whilst still in High
School and who immediately went into comedy full-time after graduating.
A meteoric rise through the ranks has seen him nominated for and
winning a raft of awards, have a guest acting role on BBC Scotland’s Scot Squad
(S4E2, 2018) and perform at the UK’s best and most prestigious comedy
clubs, including Scotland’s The Stand, Monkey Barrel, Liverpool’s
Hot Water Comedy Club and both the London and Manchester
Comedy Stores—all barely a year after first setting foot on a stage.
Liam’s stand-up is story-based and his material is uniquely personal—you
could say his unusual family have provided him with a goldmine, as his
sister and an aunt are both nuns, he has a wheelchair bound parent with
MS who has a wicked sense of self-deprecating humour, and other close
relations are in various degrees of deterioration.
"Self-referential asides and personal material… there’s a funny and interesting spark here"
"Frighteningly young first act Liam Farrelly is going to have to get used
to the Kevin Bridges comparisons or have elocution lessons… it was
apparent that this was a young man with natural storytelling talent…
Impressive stuff that earned Farrelly the runner-up spot fans"
