Stand-up comedy isn’t something anyone can do. I tried it once – ‘once’ being the keyword. My opening joke was “two men walk into a bar, ouch ouch”. My career never quite recovered after that.

That’s why we have professionals for it, with Big Mouth Comedy Club presenting four of their wittiest acts at Middlesbrough Town Hall and Saltburn Theatre on Saturday 13th November.

MC for the night is quick witted Josh Jones. The Mancunian is known for diving into the deep end with topics on LGBTQ+ rights and playground politics. Along with MC Josh Jones’ and their high energy opening will be multi award-winning TV presenter and broadcaster, Matt Richardson. Richardson kicked off his career at just 18, making it to the final on So You Think You’re Funny.

The night will also see a performance from Markus Birdman, an Edinburgh Fringe veteran who puts an emphasis on physical comedy within his shows and has been described as “a master of timing”. Comedian, actor and author Njambi McGrath will close the evening, known for her approach on tackling racism in her performances, her debut special Breaking Black, in which McGrath delves into life as a black woman in post-Brexit Britain, is a particular highlight of her oeuvre.
