Middlesbrough’s best, bestest and even besterest alternative comedy night returns to the Westgarth because the Boro wouldn’t let the groups perform in their living rooms anymore (there was an incident… I think someone keeled over from laughing too much). So, Heavy Petting have taken up residency within the Social Club and are gearing up to bring the ludicrously talented Will Franken to the venue. Featuring a ridiculously high number of sketches and characters (more than one man should legally be allowed to have in his arsenal), Franken’s set is always a dizzying whirlwind of comedy that leaves the audience exhausted (in a good way, of course).

Joining Franken on the night are the almost-legendary on stage shenanigans of the Silly Billies, bringing their brand of surreal sketch comedy to the Boro, Teeth In Eggcups providing a mix of sketches and songs that’s been dubbed the ‘New Monty Python’ and, of course, Heavy Petting themselves, who promise that they’ll be bad laughing. Is there such a thing?

Oh and the price is a measly five squids, but I wouldn’t roll up with five bits of seafood ready to be turned into calamari. I think they might be being funny…

Fiasco comes to Westgarth Social Club, Middlesbrough on Saturday 18th July.
