Ardal O'Hanlon
Until Saturday, November 16, 2019

In an age of raging populism, MeToo, identity politics, the end of truth, the collapsing middle ground, peak avocado and £15 gin and tonics – terrified of being on the wrong side of history, and desperate to prove that his gender, race, age and class don’t necessarily define him – Ardal is forced to saddle his high horse again and ride fearlessly into the culture wars, comedy (as ever) being the best emergency response mechanism there is.

Wednesday, November 20, 2019

Comedy superstar John Bishop will drop by the Harrogate Comedy Festival 2019 this October to try out brand new material for his latest stand up show, which promises to be his best yet. As one of the nation’s favourite comedians, he’ll be sure not to disappoint fans old and new.

Vince Atta is nothing less than a phenomenon, using a multi-track looper to create live hip-hop/reggae/techno and hilariously fusing it with stand-up. He’ll perform alongside Rahul Kohli and Chris Copestake (Grimsby’s best export since the fish finger) in this madcap comedy medley, with MC Lee Kyle in charge of proceedings.

The self styled ‘Newcastle Brown Male’, Rahul Kohli’s star is rising – be sure to catch him alongside Geordie funnyman Lee (who was in an all-male Spice Girls tribute act before turning to comedy) and Ireland’s newest ‘one to watch’ Chris in this triple-header.

Jack Whitehall
Friday, December 6, 2019 - Saturday, December 7, 2019

Award-winning actor, comedian, presenter and writer Jack has infiltrated almost every avenue of our entertainment industry, and with good reason. From his celebrated hit show on Netflix to starring roles in BBC comedy-dramas, presenting the BRIT Awards to A League of Their Own panellist, Jack has more than proven his calibre as an entertainer. But it’s the stage where it all started, and that’s where he’s returning to with his latest show, Jack Whitehall: Stood Up.

Promising to tickle your funny bone in one Christmas comedy cracker of a show that you won’t want to miss.

A trained medical doctor who is perhaps best known as the Sinnerman on the hugely popular ITV quiz show The Chase, Paul has been top of the funny business since 2006 when he was nominated for comedy’s most prestigious prize, the Perrier Award. And like a fine wine, he has only got better with time.
