Best known for:
Micky is a one of the nations favourite comedians.
With bundles of self-deprecating charm and perfect timing, Micky wins over any audience with his stream of observations on life's little absurdities. He's been described as 'gut-wrenchingly hilarious' by The Mirror, and simply 'the future of comedy' by Frank Skinner. Micky claims an East End upbringing so impoverished that Alphabetti Spaghetti was a luxury. He's since gone from Billingsgate fish porter to appearing in Sainsbury commercials and marrying into the middle classes. Micky affectionately mocks the more rarified world he now inhabits and the characters he's (almost) left behind.
A professional stand-up since 1997, Micky Flanagan draws on his East End background as he ruthlessly deconstructs the Cockney myth with razor-sharp observational wit.
