Stephen Graham is one of Liverpool’s unsung stars. His charisma has graced both Hollywood and the UK, having starred in blockbusters Snatch and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, to name but two films on his incredibly impressive CV. Instantly recognisable, Graham is emblematic of Liverpool’s thriving performing arts scene that blossomed from the working classes.
His unforgettable appearance as Peter Turner’s brother in Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool is a fascinating portrayal of family life in a city that was trying to deal with stardom, even though political policy had it on its knees.
Liverpool’s ultimate funny man, John Bishop is one of the UK’s most successful comedians. There’s something about the humour that comes from the North-West that can’t be matched; an acerbic brilliance so relatable people can’t help but fall in love with the person telling the jokes.
John Bishop’s cutting observations and down-to-earth demeanour can be attributed to the people of Liverpool’s ability to see things in unique ways and to have the uncanny ability to laugh at self-deprecation. Bishop is a one of a kind comedian who was not only born, but made in Liverpool.
