Fancy a bit of the Edinburgh Festival but without the extortionate prices, mountains of flyers and throngs of ambitious entertainers vying for their big break?

Course you do, and Teesside comedy promoter Funny Way To Be has got your back. A top line-up of comics will present their star making material on Saturday 17th and Saturday 31st July in Barnard Castle at The Witham.

Saturday 17th sees Brennan Reece, Jo Caulfield, Alfie Moore and Carl Hutchinson step up. Brennan Reece has appeared on Live At The Apollo; Jo Caulfield is a sharp-witted, award-winning comedian who is regularly seen on TV panel shows like Mock The Week; Alfie Moore brings a live version of his Radio 4 programme It’s A Fair Cop to the stage and Carl Hutchinson steps out from supporting roles into the limelight.

Saturday 31st sees Lauren Pattison, Lloyd Griffith, Kieran Hodgson and Stephen Bailey spin some comedy gold. Lauren Pattison is widely regarded as one of the region’s most exciting up and coming comics; you may have seen Lloyd Griffith goofing about on Soccer AM; while Kieran Hodgson is ‘Edinburgh Festival royalty’ and Stephen Bailey’s friendly and open brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming acts in comedy at the moment.
