The Frazer Theatre Comedy Club returns to Knaresborough stage  with an eclectic mix of comedians on Friday September 6.

Leading the charge is one of the highest-rated headliners – Nick Doody on a return visit to the Fraser.

The full line-up includes:

Nick Doody – Dave Gorman writer and tour support

Josh Pugh – English Comedian of the Year

Tony Wright – Chortle Student Comedy Awards Winner 2017

Dave Thompson – Harry Hill’s TV Burp.

Knaresborough Players vice-chairman John Pearce said: “We’ve enjoyed our summer break, highlighted by the barn-storming Knaresborough Comedy Festival with a trip to the Edinburgh Fringe to scout the next generation of comics, coming to the Frazer next year.

“However, it’s always great to be doing what we do best – bringing the very best in comedy to the club.

“We’re kicking off our latest season in style, with the wonderful Nick Doody bringing his razor-sharp and deliciously dark sense of humour to our headline slot.

“Josh Pugh has spent a month tearing up the Fringe with his well-reviewed show Perhaps the Real Comedy Awards are the Friends We Make Along the Way and it’s exciting to have such a hot young talent visiting us for the first time.

“Tony Wright, occupying our coveted middle slot, is still young for one with such smooth self-confidence on stage.

“Finally, and to our great delight, Dave Thompson, the man with a passport the size of a telephone directory, is returning as MC, bringing his absurdist and laugh-out-loud style to take charge of proceedings.

“It’s a huge honour to have him host our evening’s entertainment.”
