The next Stagefright Comedy Club takes place on Saturday 1st October at Ilkley Playhouse frontlined by Jonny Pelham and Anna Thomas.
Jonny Pelham is one of the most exciting stand-up comedians in the UK. He has appeared on Live at the Apollo, Mock The Week, Alan Davies As Yet Untitled, Russell Howard’s Stand-up Central, Live from the BBC and Bobby and Harriet Get Married.
Anna Thomas is a Welsh comedian and winner of BBC’s New Comedy Awards 2021. UK Comedy Guide Chortle describes her ‘distinctive rhythms and charmingly dotty attitude that wins our affections with a convivial daftness. She has the appealing air of not quite being of this world. But whatever planet she’s from, they know funny’.
Supporting them is Benny Shakes - a powerhouse of ‘funny’ built on a foundation of clever joke writing, from the daily struggles of living with a disability to his observations on red neck life. Benny is a relatable and affable comic who ‘raises the roof’ every time.
Also supporting is Midlands Comedy Award winner Tommy Tomski. He has been described as ‘an imaginative weaver of narrative with a machine gun style delivery of punchlines’.
The line-up for the evening will be brilliantly compered by Anthony Brown.
