Working at the Shakespeare Theatre Club all those years ago, I have been left with some happy memories and a handful of good friends, one being Les Dennis who is starring until the end of the month at The Royal Court in The Miracle of Great Homer Street, which is a triumph.Liverpool PrideOPINION Why I want you to call me queerQueer Liverpool is a new podcast reflecting the diversity of gay culture in our cityPoliticsDerek Hatton: ‘Jamie Carragher was wrong but Ant McPartlin makes me sick’Degsy’s verdict on the stories making the newsCrimeIt’s a bitter pill to swallow.
