Knaresborough Players vice-Chairman John Pearce said “After months of planning, we’re absolutely delighted to be starting our “Five Years of Funny” celebration!
“We’re holding nothing back in 2019 to bring our audiences the absolute best in live comedy.
“From our monthly club nights, tour shows and, of course, the 2019 Knaresborough Comedy Festival, we’re going to be bringing the biggest, best and most importantly funniest names around to the Frazer.
“January’s Comedy Club brings us an act like no other and one I personally am enormously excited to see. Foxdog Studios take a love of tech and apply it to live comedy in a way never before seen.
“Allowing the audience to control and interact with physical props on stage through the magic of their own phones is absolutely cutting-edge technology but, crucially, the results are also extremely funny.”
