October's Stagefright Comedy Club

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.
