Hyena Comedy Club July 2013
Harrogate Theatre’s very own
monthly comedy club
Now in its 8th year
Now in its eighth year, the Hyena Comedy Club, Harrogate’s
longest running monthly funny-fest, continues to be quality Saturday night
entertainment, showcasing the very best of the UK comedy circuit’s
talent. This excellent line-up show right on your doorstep is the perfect
night out for people who like laughing.
For just £12, you can catch the next big thing in comedy, as
four stand-out stand-ups take to the Harrogate Theatre stage. The Hyena’s
keen eye for comedic talent means that many of the acts have gone on to become
some of the biggest names in British comedy, including Alan Carr, Rhod Gilbert,
Mark Watson, Sarah Millican, Russell Howard and Chris Addison. Forget
boring Saturday night telly and see stand-up at its best: live.
Yorkshire funny man Tom Wrigglesworth is back at Harrogate Theatre, his hugely successful show 'Tom Wriggleworth's Open Return Letter to Richard Branson' bagged him the Chortle award for Best Show 2010, and a nomination for the main Edinburgh Festival Comedy gong.
Firmly established as one of the most original and talented comedians on the UK and international circuit, charismatic wordsmith Tom began his ascent up the comedy ladder in 2002. In 2003, he scooped the first prize in Channel 4's prestigious So You Think You're Funny? competition and a year later he was nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer. Since then, he has continued to take the UK circuit by storm. An articulate and natural raconteur, he possesses and innate ability to riff with an audience like they're old friends.

Show-biz legend Sol Bernstein is back! Sol Bernstein is the comic creation of Steve Jameson, a top comedy performer himself.
The legend that is Sol Bernstein escaped the Pogroms in Russia, the Nazis in Germany, and went on to become the World's 1st all-round entertainer.
He's a song and dance man, a comedian, a magician, an actor, a Jazz musician (Sol was rated "Best Triangle" player in the USA in the 50's by performers like Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington). Also rated the best impersonator EVER!
"One part Alf Garnett, two parts Mel Brooks, and three parts like nothing you've ever heard" The Guardian
