‘Tis the season to be jolly, and this December there’s three times more reasons to be merry as Shoe Cake Comedy Club bring festive cheer to Hartlepool, Stockton and Redcar. First up on Thursday 7th December at Stockton’s Musiclounge is a line-up headlined by The Discount Comedy Checkout. Despite the name, there’s nothing bargain-basement about their “100% raw” improv hijinks, with even more hilarity injected by a supporting cast of Callum Oakley, Rivka Uttley and multi-award-winning stand-up Jack Gleadow.

Monty Burns heads up the bill at Hartlepool’s Chilli Cake on Friday 15th December. And no, it’s not the devious owner of Springfield’s nuclear power plant, but instead a fiery Scot and ex-soldier who’s commanded an impressive following despite only starting his stand-up career in 2013.

Just a day later, Shoe Cake team up with Hilarity Bites on Saturday 16th for a special pre-Christmas bash at Tuned In! in Redcar. Irish-Iranian funnyman Pat Monahan will be helping to round off a successful 2017 as the show’s headliner, joined by a stellar supports in the shape of award-winner Carl Hutchinson, former cabaret performer-turned-stand up Abi Roberts and a returning Monty Burns – plus a hog roast! Comedy doesn’t get a lot tastier than that.
