Brendan Riley’s Scouse accent and armoury of anecdotes and gags combined with intrepid improvisation and a direct, brash yet affable approach make him a sought after comedian.
Combining high levels of energy with affable banter the uninitiated may miss his Swiss watch timing and his natural storytelling flair, making Brendan the ideal choice for a wide variety of events.
Bren’s other great passion is motorbikes. Being a fully qualified track mechanic and racer has seen him producing documentaries on the sport in addition to touring the Isle of Man tour during the TT and compering the Hell’s Angels annual Bulldog Bash which led 100% Biker Mag to write “I have never, ever seen so many bikers crying tears of laughter in my life”
You may also have caught him in Hollyoaks, Coronation Street, supporting Liverpool band China Crisis or on BBC R5 Live.
A director of The Southport Comedy Festival, Bren also runs and regularly hosts the weekly Liverpool Comedy Cellar
