Comedy at the Courthouse (18th Sep)

Rural Arts Thirsk
Wednesday 18th September

It’s back! Laugh your socks off to three of Yorkshire’s finest comic talents, hosted by MC Tom Taylor.

This season’s headline act is English Comedian of the Year finalist Nina Gilligan, whose sometimes outrageous, always hilarious storytelling goes down a treat. A bolshier Mrs Merton, she's not one to suffer fools lightly - so watch out for a razor sharp wit used at will. Her act will leave you shouting for more! []

Alongside Nina will be...

Howard Walker - "A natural stage presence, an instantly amenable demeanour, inventive imagery and the best comedic use of a Belgian place name even the most ardent chuckle chaser will ever hear" - Stagefright Comedy []

Matt Bragg - “With a calm and reassuring stage presence, blisteringly sharp and hilariously funny jokes, Matt Bragg is a comedic force to be reckoned with, a refreshingly different performer.” - Scott Bennett (Comedian, Rob Brydon Tour Support) []

And your host is Tom Taylor - "A quirky, sometimes musical act with all the nervous energy of early Adam Hess. Dad jokes – and plenty of better ones besides – are rarely done this stylishly." - Steve Bennett, Chortle []
