Stockton’s independent treasure The Georgian Theatre is the home of the monthly comedy night Shoe Cake Comedy Club, who this month host The Last Stop to Edinburgh Festival. The comedy weekender will feature brand new shows, family-friendly performances and festival favourites, with familiar faces seen on the likes of Never Mind The Buzzcocks and 8 Out Of 10 Cats.

Taking place on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd October, the event will feature nine shows taking inspiration from the famous Fringe Festival. Included on the line-up are the interactive Discount Comedy Checkout troupe, who have been a presence on the comedy scene for 12 years – their improv stints will feature both family and adult shows.

The festival also welcomes local talent, as Teesside comedian Fran Garrity and Middlesbrough sensation Ted Hanky will make appearances, alongside award-winning Teessider Catherine Young. Catch big names too, with absurdist TV comedian Tony Law in his new show, Bobby Mair presents a first look at his dark new show Cockroach before it tours, and John O’Sullivan offers up his sophisticated comedy comeback.

Each show is capped at 120 capacity, creating an intimate atmosphere to watch great talent up-close. Tickets are available per show, with flexible multi-tickets to catch all the action, and free tickets available for low-income families.
