About Ian Kenyon - known as The Huyton Poet...

I began performing Stand Up comedy on stage in 2008 and a few years later – on my wife’s advice, I combined my humorous poetry with the comedy routines and it worked a treat. I’ve had poems published in local and national press as well as having over 900 poems broadcast on my local BBC radio (Radio Merseyside) along with a regular live spot. My speaking performance work is based on amusing conversation, observation and my funny poems. I have performed in theatres throughout the North on England.
I wrote funny poems and comedy pieces for the late Sir Ken Dodd and I also performed with him on a number of his theatre shows. I have had repeat bookings for every venue and social group I have performed at or for.

Laughter from start to finish.

About my presentations...

My performance lasts 45 to 60 minutes (longer if required) and  I use a small single speaker (if it is needed) – so I just need a power supply.


My fee is £85 within 20 miles of my home in Huyton, Merseyside – L36.     If the venue is further afield, I charge travelling expenses @ 20p per mile

The Rhymes and Ramblings of a Performance Poet / Comedian

As well as performing at speaking engagements I write poems and comedy ideas for other entertainers including the great Ken Dodd. I was “discomnockerated” when Ken Dodd commissioned a series of poems from me for him to use on his national tour.
As a successful Stand Up Comedian and Performance Poet I have appeared at Theatres and clubs throughout the North of England Appeared on both  BBC2 & BBC4 TV shows “Scouser’s telling Jokes” in 2013 & 2014
I also had the great honour of performing in front of Ken Dodd, Jimmy Cricket, Freddy “Parrot Face” Davies and about 120 other comedians and celebrities at a recent “Good Turns Society” luncheon.
