With the Edinburgh Fringe Festival on the horizon, a slew of Edinburgh Previews are taking over the UK, and a veritable feast of fantastic acts are arriving at The Georgian Theatre in Stockton from Friday 22nd-Sunday 24th July courtesy of local comedy club Shoe Cake.

The three day festival will offer a mixture of adult and family friendly acts. Friday evening’s proceedings will kick off with 1930s throwback and terribly charming man Troy Hawke, followed by Lou Conran’s self-described “undignified manner and devil may care attitude”, topped off with a work in progress show from Northern double act The Halls of Ridiculous, who present a fusion of improv, sketch and character comedy.

The Saturday is a day-long event beginning at 12pm with two shows for youngsters, The Discount Comedy Checkout Family Show and the Lee Kyle Family Show. They’ll be followed by performances from impressionist Danny Posthill, award-winning local comic Catherine Young and high energy Teesside favourite Patrick Monahan before Lee Kyle returns for his oddball work in progress show. Sunday will see a double bill of Justin Moorhouse and Brennan Reece, who both bring quick wit, audacious crowd work and working class humour.

Last Stop To Edinburgh takes place at The Georgian Theatre, Stockton from Friday 22nd-Sunday 24th July.
