The meteoric rise of the Shoe Cake Comedy Club has been nothing less than spectacular! Quickly becoming a byword for new and exciting comedy, stale gong shows and overpriced pro nights crumble by the wayside as a mix of established acts and new exciting talent rock the minds of audiences in side-splitting line-ups in Stockton and Hartlepool.
This Xmas edition, in Stockton, once again looks to deliver everything that a great comedy night should have.
The Discount Comedy Checkout headline the night with their not to be missed improv show. The super quick witted troupe has an almost telepathic connection with each other as they turn your seemingly innocuous suggestions into breathtaking fits of laughter.
Jack Gleadow swept the board this year with a whole host of awards and accolades. His main influences are Lee Evans, Lee Mack, Frank Skinner and Tim Vine and it surely won’t be long before he is held in the same regard, and rightly so.
Rivka Uttley is another hidden gem and she goes way beyond her persona of cat-lady and crochet enthusiast. Her stories weave subtle nuances and are intertwined with killer punchlines as they take you on an unexpected yet hilarious journey.
Young and lively comedian, Callum Oakley, made his TV debut in 2012 and has continued to delight audiences up and down the country on the comedy circuit. He’s another future star promising to bring the funny!
Ted Hanky will host the night. The self-proclaimed ‘fan of the bush’ will no doubt be whipping out his magic asparagus entertaining the Stockton crowd with feats of magic, pulling techniques and cringe-worthy tales from his childhood.
This spectacular comedy show takes place at Musiclounge, Stockton on Thursday 7th December. Tickets, priced at £6.00 in advance, are available from skiddle.com. Tickets on the door are priced at £8.00.
