Meet Weekend Comedy Gala, in Barnard Castle, brings some of the best comics performing in the UK to the Teesdale town.
Patrick Monahan, Winner of ITV's Show Me The Funny, is full of an insatiable lust for life. His exuberant comedy greets the audience like along lost best friend. A natural-born performer, he exudes charisma from the stage (and often off it, when he scuttles into the crowd...!)
'High energy and conviction, his material is great; he's going to go far'...The Sunday Times
'Monahan possesses the rare ability to be hilarious without being outrageous'...Three Weeks
Carl Hutchinson comes to us off the back of a run supporting Chris Ramsey in major theatres across the UK. Geordie comic Carl has been crowned the Magners Pub Comedian of the Year and the winner of the Beat the Frog World Series competition. He also reached the final of So You Think You’re Funny? and been nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Award.
Fin Taylor is a stand-up comedian, actor and writer. His 2016Edinburgh show ‘Whitey McWhiteface’ was one of the most talked about shows of the Festival, ‘hilariously exploding white privilege’ in what the Guardian called ‘a striking, bull-in-a-china shop set from a comic that wants to make you think as well as laugh, and laugh hard’.
George Rigden is already one of the most exciting,hotly-tipped and sought after new acts on the UK comedy circuit and frequently gigs up and down the country for the leading comedy clubs. This music based comedian is certain to make a sparkle to the Meet Comedy Gala.
