If you’re looking for a fun and affordable night out, as January seems to drag, leave your worries behind and immerse yourself in rude jokes and lots of laughs at the highly recommended Hot Water Comedy Club.

They run multiple nights a week where comedians from around the country come and try out their new material. The show I attended was made up of a host, four comedians and the headline act.

As you enter the comedy club, on Hardman Street, friendly staff welcome you and the bar is on hand to get you in the mood.

Host Katie Tracy, a Liverpool lass, is great at interacting with the audience between comedians. Katie starts by asking audience members where they’re from, she will proceed to take the ‘mickey’ out that area, as she believes if you’re from Liverpool, you can’t try to be posh.

Starting the night was Scouser Jack Miller. You can tell that Jack is clearly proud of his Liverpool roots and knows how to interact with his local audience. Jokes about plunge pools and losing weight, really resonated with the audience.

Next up on the bill was another local lad Mike Cater. The Croxteth native starts his act exploring how his ex-girlfriend dumped him, because her mates egged her on, leaving him wondering how great a relationship help group involving ‘an addict and the divorcee’ would be.

Mike’s entertaining dark sense of humour comes through, especially when observing spotting a gunman in sliders and socks, at his local cinema, as the most ‘Scouse’ thing he’s ever seen.

The comedian that took the stage next was TikTok star Freddy Quinne. One of the brightest sparks on the circuit. His jokes about health and giving up drink really gave me a chuckle. Freddy really hits the mark with his dry take on the less than happy side of life.

Manchester lad Harry Stachini was up next focusing his jokes on life growing up with his three older sisters. Everything from questioning his sexuality because of what films he watched, to the joys of a late great growth spurt during puberty.

The headline slot was performed by Simon Wozniak. Simon’s eccentric humour and stage presence makes him a fan favourite. His dark and nihilistic jokes on relationships and drink driving makes him stand out.

Overall, I really enjoyed my night at Hot Water Comedy Club. Thoroughly recommended for a night out with your partner or mates who enjoy a drink and a good laugh!
