“See him or regret it. A great comedian" John Bishop

Manchester based Mick Ferry is renowned as a fine purveyor of lugubrious surrealism and is established as one of the most sought after comics on the British and International comedy circuit.  One of the finest comperes around, at ease bantering with a crowd but with no shortage of first-class material, Mick performs regularly at The Comedy Store in London and Manchester, as well as being sought after at comedy venues across the UK and internationally.  A supremely talented and versatile performer, Mick is also an esteemed member of The Cutting Edge at the London Comedy Store; a furiously paced, topical team show in which Mick continues to hone his talent for off-the-cuff, satirical and topical comedy, wowing audiences with his spontaneous acerbic outbursts and razor sharp wit.

Mick began his assault on the stand-up circuit back in 1998, making it to the finals of Channel 4’s esteemed So You Think You’re Funny? competition.  His stand up career has gone from strength to strength and he is now widely recognised as one of the most talented and original stand-ups to have emerged from the North.  Testament to this fact, he has been invited to perform alongside stand-up luminaries Johnny Vegas, Sean Lock, Peter Kay, Al Murray and Steve Coogan – having the honour of joining each of them as a special guest on live shows.  His eminence within the stand-up community was further underlined in 2013 when he won the Best Live Stand Up Award, as voted for by his contemporaries.

A creative and prolific writer, Mick has had an impressive catalogue of solo shows; debuting his first show Mick Ferry’s Won F*&K All! to a sell-out audience and great critical acclaim at the Manchester Comedy Festival back in 2004.  He went on to produce and perform in a regular monthly show in Manchester; Mick Ferry’s Space Cadets.  His debut at The Edinburgh Comedy Festival came in in 2004 when he appeared as part of the highly regarded Big Value Comedy Show.  He has been a regular fixture at the Edinburgh festival ever since, presenting his first full solo show in 2009; The Comedy Final.  He returned in 2010 with The Missing Chippendale (Body Issues), in 2011 with Sod It and in 2013 with Mick Ferry Has Been Found Wanting.  He returned to the Edinburgh Festival in 2014 with another new show What’s Going On?. He also starred as Uncle Mick in the award-winning twisted children’s show Funz & Gamez.  Heralded by Phil Ellis, the show was the buzz hit of the festival, and scooped the prestigious Panel Prize at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards for its sheer brilliance and originality. The team recorded a pilot of the show for BBC Three, which was selected for the BBC Salford Sitcom Showcase.
