Micky P Kerr
Leeds-based comedian, musician and social commentator Micky P Kerr is a breath of fresh air on the live comedy circuit. Fusing together music, spoken word and comedy, with his tongue often planted firmly in his cheek, Kerr has been described as “the bastard spawn of John Cooper Clarke”.
Already a familiar face on the live music circuit, Micky turned his hand to stand-up comedy in 2013 and quickly became “one to watch”. In 2018 Micky entered Britain’s Got Talent, where he proved to be a massive hit with both the public and the judges, making it all the way to the final, which was watched by almost 11 million people.
2017 saw Micky take his debut solo show, ‘Micky P Kerr is Lay-Z’ to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He returned in 2019 with ‘Z List Celebrity’, which then went on to tour the UK. Both shows received rave reviews.
At the end of 2018, life-long Leeds Utd fan Micky wrote a ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ parody entitled ‘Bielsa Rhapsody’, a tribute to the Argentinan Leeds United manager. It immediately went viral after it was picked up by SportsBible, gaining over 5 million hits. The song was released at Christmas as a charity single in aid of the Forget Me Not Children's Hospice and it reached No 5 in the itunes chart!
Micky now performs, for all the top clubs around the UK and is a firm favourite at music festivals.
