Following our fantastic launch of Comedy in a Castle we’re looking forward to two more sensational line-ups to round off the year.
Entertaining you on Sunday 28 November and Sunday 19 December will be some more stars of the regular comedy circuit who are no strangers to TV but none have performed in a castle before!
Both evenings will be held together by our resident compere Chris Lumb. Chris really knows how to read and work a room and, quite frankly, is value for money all by himself.
Opening the show on 28 November is multi-award winning Tom Taylor who has bagged awards in So You Think You’re Funny in 2013 and the Hobgoblin Comedy Awards in 2015, was audience favourite at the Musical Comedy Awards in 2017 and an English Comedian of the Year finalist in 2018.
‘Wave after wave of funny, a genuine joy” The Scotsman
“Excellent – beautifully daft” Sunday Times
Pin sharp wit from Dawn Bailey follows, covering everything from slimming clubs to involuntary flatulence.
And headlining will be Martin Mor who claims to have performed in the widest variety of venues from the Hammersmith Apollo to Everest basecamp. Martin has supported Frankie Boyle, Jack Dee, Lee Evans, Jasper Carrot, Patrick Kielty, Johnny Vegas, Steve Coogan, and once even Tina Turner.
He’s been on TV, radio and appeared at pretty much every comedy club worth its salt.
“Offbeat, unusual, outrageous” Time Out
“Martin is the act that has influenced me the most. The UK comedy scene would not be the same without him” Frankie Boyle
On December 19 our headline act is Barbara Nice, alter ego of Janice Connolly, star of Phoenix Nights. Barbara is a Stockport housewife, cleaner to the starts and an avid reader of Take A Break. Her shows are playful, life-affirming and her style has been compared to Victoria Wood, Mrs Merton and Julie Walters. She reached the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent in 2019.
“Riotous, raucous all-inclusive fun. If you like fun, you like laughter and your soul needs a bit of a boost, Barbara Nice will not disappoint” London Is Funny
Barbara will be supported by impressionist Charlie Hopkinson who boasts over 100 million views on YouTube (that’s quite a lot, apparently) and had a run of New Comedian of the Year awards in 2018/19
And opening the evening will be Kendal based Pete Otway. Simply described as “Devastatingly funny” by Chortle magazine
So join us for an achingly entertaining night out.
Supper and comedy is £40 per person. We’ll have some comedy only tickets but numbers will be limited.
And if you fancy making a night of it, rooms will be available at the special price of £160 per double.
