VERY SPECIAL GUEST – For one reason or another we can’t tell you the name of this top stand-up comedian but you should definitely take a punt.

This comic is a familiar face on national TV – including such shows as Live at the Apollo – and regularly sells out big theatres including Theatre Severn on tour around the UK.

Our “Very Special Guest” will be using the brilliant comedy-loving crowd at Henry Tudor House to try out some new material. Not to be missed!!

TIFF STEVENSON – A finalist on ITV1’s Show Me the Funny, Tiff Stevenson is a stand-up comedian, actor and writer, known for her honest material and instantly likeable disposition.

Her solo Edinburgh stand-up shows, ‘Uncomfortably Numb’, ‘Cavewoman’, ‘Dictators’ and ‘Along Came a Spider’, have consistently had packed audiences and rave reviews, and in 2012 she won the Mervyn Stutter’s Spirit of the Fringe Award. In 2010 Tiffany starred in Celebrity Autobiography at the Fringe and in the West End alongside David Tennant, Michael Urie, Sally Phillips and Doon Mackichan.

Her TV credits include Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC Two), The Office (BBC Two), Absolute Power (BBC Two), Balls of Steel (Channel 4), Only Joking (Sky), Celebrity Deal Or No Deal (Channel 4), Live With Gabby (Five) and Show Me The Funny (ITV), performing in the live final at London’s Hammersmith Apollo to millions of viewers.

MATT REED (MC) – With so many gigs of every size under his belt, from 3000 to 30, there is pretty much no comedy situation Matt can’t handle.  A regular face at all the major clubs in the country (The Comedy Store, The Stand, Komedia, The Glee), Matt is also in great demand as MC for music festivals, burlesque nights and corporate occasions.

As pleasant as he is wonderfully brutal, this Sunderland native is a welcome addition to any comedy night; entertaining the crowd while skillfully destroying any heckler that crosses his path. His affable style has won him fans across the country, playing with the crowd with a natural rapport found in few comics.
