Stockton’s Catch 22 Comedy Club night has featured some of the funniest people the UK has to offer. It’s a wonder why they haven’t reached out to me yet.

Happening on the last Friday of every month at ARC, June’s event on Friday 24th will see MC Mike Wilkinson wrangling performers and audiences with expert zeal. Being a poultry framer by day, dry-wit comedian at night, he’ll make you cluck up laughter (I’m not sorry) as he tells some of the most interesting stories you’ll ever hear. On top of that, he’s known to hand out free vegetables at the end of shows, so your tea will be sorted for the next day too.

Aiming to tickle your funny bone will be Njambi McGrath, a Kenyan-born, UK-based comedian, who’s known for the Radio 4 show Njambi McGrath: Becoming Njambi, in which she brings a unique but compelling African perspective to her sets.

After her will be Mike Carter, who in just half a decade has established himself as a veteran of the North West scene, channelling his inner pessimistic Scouse, he puts everything on blast. Ending the night on a high note will be comedy legend Allyson June Smith, describing herself as an “over sharer”, Smith exudes confidence and hooks audience she performs to with her uniquely dynamite material.

Catch 22 Comedy Club takes place at ARC, Stockton on Friday 24th June.
