Comedy club Funny Way To Be are taking over The Witham in Teesdale for two days in July to show off a series of preview shows by comics on their way to Edinburgh Fringe festival.

The first four previews will take place on Saturday 16th July, and will feature Mark Nelson, Kai Humphries, Craig Hill, Alasdair Beckett-King. Mark Nelson is the host of The Good, The Bad & The Unexpected and is regularly voted as one of the best headlining comedians, whereas Kai Humphries co-hosts the popular Sloss And Humphries On The Road podcast. Craig Hill is a staple of the Scottish comedy circuits, dubbed Scotland’s favourite kilted comedian, while Alasdair Beckett-King has a very suave stage presence that perfectly matches his sharp wit.

The second day, occurring on Saturday 30th July, will feature another four hour-long shows, welcoming Tom Stade, Connor Burns, Suzi Ruffell and Brennan Reece. Canadian comic Tom Stade has become popular on the UK circuit thanks to his cheeky and often caustic charm, while Connor Burns has been a fan favourite support for some of the most popular comedians on the Scottish scenes. Suzi Ruffell consistently sells out shows, and is regarded one of the best up-and-coming acts, and capping the fun off rubber-faced comic Brennan Reece will be presenting his upcoming show, Crowded.

Funny Way To Be Edinburgh Comedy Previews take place at The Witham, Barnard Castle on Saturday 16th and Saturday 30th July.
