'The Very Best In Stand Up' returns to the Civic Hall to kick things off in style for a new year of comedy.


A storming bill of stand up comedy is kicked off by the fantastic Paul Tonkinson. A sensational live performer, Yorkshire man, marathon runner and former (double award-winning) Time Out Comedian of the Year, Paul Tonkinson has long upheld his esteemed reputation as one of the finest stand-ups the UK has to offer. With a unique and distinctive style, Tonkinson is noted for his effervescent physicality and skillful impressions, which bring alive exuberant, tender comic reflections on love, family and the day-to-day idiosyncrasies of 21st century living. A plethora of first class material, combined with tremendous charm and irrepressible, infectious energy make for quite a formidable talent.


Our compere & host for the evening is Barry Dodds. A talented storyteller who uses whimsical imagery and evocative observations, Barry is an assured closing act, with regular bookings at many of the UK’s top comedy clubs including The Stand, XS Malarkey and The Frog and Bucket. His comedy has even taken him to Luxembourg, where his solo show proved so popular, he became the first ever comedian to perform on Luxembourg TV. Barry has recently been supporting Jason Manford, on his UK Tour. His calm, inclusive persona has ensured that Barry has also proven himself to be a popular and amiable MC, garnering a reputation as a strong and reliable choice to hold a quality line up together. In January '16, Barry Dodds was awarded Best MC at the Midlands Comedy Awards 2016.


Closing the evening are the comedy tour de force that is the 'Raymnd & Mr Timpkins Review'. The last (and only) time they played saw a standing ovation & this is expected to be no different. They are the without a doubt the maddest, silliest, stupidest, cleverest, strangest and everything else-ist as well as one of the funniest double act of comedians on the circuit. If you've not had the pleasure of seeing them before, buy a ticket!

In the middle section we have veteran scottish comic JoJo Sutherland. JoJo is considered one of the top comperes for club, corporate and festival work worldwide and is loved for her unique takes parenting, life and anything she chooses to muse about on the stage.
