Comedian Lloyd Griffith to headline comedy line-up at Liverpool’s drive-in winter festival The Parking Lot Social
Now more than ever, everyone is in need of a little festive cheer and The Parking Lot social is bringing the laughs to Liverpool this Christmas with drive-in comedy night ‘Parking LOL’.
Taking place at Liverpool John Lennon Airport on 9th December, the evening will see some of the UK’s most loved comedians take to the stage with the epic line-up announced today.
Leading the bill is celebrated Grimsby comedian, Lloyd Griffith – billed by The Times as ‘disarmingly good’ and with a well-known singing talent. Following a successful presenting career on Soccer AM and Sky Sports, Lloyd then focused his career on comedy and in recent years has been seen on tour with Jack Whitehall and Rob Beckett.
Joining Griffith is award winning Yorkshire comedian Rob Mulholland. A regular on the northern comedy circuit who now travels the world with his talent, Rob is six foot seven of pure funny and mischievous humour.
Also featured is Dan Nightingale, one of stand-ups brightest stars who combines cutting observation with his natural playfulness and great gags! Expect genuine, honest, unpredictable content that will keep you laughing all night.
Completing the line-up is Manchester based comedy star Nina Gilligan who is a regular on the UK comedy circuit known for her outrageous and observational comedy. Billed as a ‘bolshier Mrs Merton’, we’re sure her act will leave Liverpool desperate for more!
And the fun doesn’t stop there, ahead of the show visitors will be treated to musical entertainment from live DJs playing a mix of classic anthems and the latest hits straight to your car.
As well as enjoying the comedy and music, order tasty festive snacks directly to your cars from some of the best local food trucks around. Expect classic gourmet burgers, loaded fries, wood-fired pizzas and hot dogs alongside sweet winter warmers including hot chocolate, doughnuts, toasted nuts, gingerbread men and more.
