As Noddy Holder keeps telling us at this time of year ... It's Chrisssssssssssmmmaaaaaaaaasssssss!

So, strap yourselves in for a fantastic Festive special hosted by the always entertaining Barry Dodds.

One of the most popular headliners up and down the land, Rich Wilson has loved comedy ever since his next-door neighbour gave him a cassette of Eddie Murphy in full flow.

Then, working as a barman at a London comedy club, he hit the stage himself and hasn't looked back since.

Highly entertaining. - Time Out

He's a very, very funny man. - Frank Skinner

Dan Nightingale is a popular TV warm-up for the likes of Jonathan Ross, John Bishop and Celebrity Juice - and a hi-octane mix of razor sharp observations and killer punch lines have also made him one of the biggest crowd-pleasing headliners all over the country.

Nightingale can make just about anything funny. - Time Out

Top support comes from hotly-tipped multi award-winning newcomer Simon Lomas, so best buy early for this one.

Jimmy Carr:

The Best Of, Ultimate, Gold, Greatest Hits Tour


Two shows in one night - Fri 15 Dec
Yarm Princess Alexandra Auditorium

Tickets: £27.50 + BF

6pm Show (EXTRA SHOW - ON SALE 10AM WEDS 22 NOV)
9pm Show (SOLD OUT - any returns available from 10am Weds 22 Nov)





Great news - Jimmy's doubled up!

When his agent recently told Jimmy Carr how quickly his upcoming Yarm show had sold out, he went back to his diary and decided to fit another performance in on the same night

The extra show will take place at 6pm on Friday 15 December, with the existing (sold out) 8pm show being moved an hour later to 9pm to accommodate this.

We sincerely hope that this will not cause any inconvenience for existing ticket holders, and are offering an option to swap seats to the early show, or alternatively a full refund, if this is the case.

Existing ticketholders who are fine for the 9pm start just need to turn up an hour later - easy!

Anybody who would like to keep the same seat but switch to the early show is asked to contact their ticket issuer BEFORE 4PM ON MONDAY 20 NOVEMBER to arrange.

Any ticketholders wishing for a full refund are asked to contact their ticket issuer by 4pm on Thursday 30 November to arrange.

We are excited to be able to accommodate some of the fans who didn't manage to get a ticket last time, and would like to thank existing ticketholders in advance for their support in making this happen.

'Tis the festive season! Matt Reed hosts the Catch 22 Christmas special with Pierre Novellie, Chris McCausland and Simon Lomas.

Observational comic Pierre Novellie is a regular on BBC Radio 4. As well as stand-up - he's an in demand writer too; his writing credits include Adam Buxton's Shed of Christmas and Mock the Week.

Wry, confident observational comedy... hilarious. - The Sunday Times

Like most comics, Chris McCausland discovered stand-up when he was signed off work with the shingles. Since then, he hasn't turned back. As well as starring alongside Miranda Hart in Unwrapped, you might recognise Chris from his lead role in the BBC1's Jimmy McGovern drama Moving On.

McCausland is like John Bishop, with a similar Scouse charm; but with more bite - Fringe Guru

Beating gong shows and new act competitions across the country, including reaching the final of our very own Beat The Gong, English Comedian of The Year finalist Simon Lomas makes a very welcome return to ARC.

The best MC this side of anywhere...Geordie genius - Time Out

Expect twists and turns from comedian Julian Deane as he lures you into a false sense of security before plucking you right back out of it with his sharp, original punchlines.

After recently bagging the support slot for Paul Chowdhry's UK tour, his hotly-tipped 'boost up the comedy rankings' is looking more and more likely.

Deliciously twisted. A stream of seriously good gags. Quick, sharply written and endlessly repeatable lines. - The Guardian

Boro born Phil Chapman has come a long way since began his first gig at a local Chinese restaurant in 2006 - going on to place second in the legendary Beat the Frog World Series - among a number of other competitions. Phil is known for his carefully crafted gags and notable stage presence.

SHAPPI KHORSANDI:

Mistress and Misfit


Sat 17 Feb
ARC, Stockton-On-Tees

Tickets: £15.00/£13.00

Box office: 01642 525 199
Doors: 8:00pm / 16+





Shappi presents England's unsung heroine, Emma Hamilton. For too many years she has been known as just 'Nelson's mistress', and a bit of a harlot. (You get ONE job in a brothel and bang goes your reputation.) Women's lib wasn't a 'thing'; in Georgian times, Emma moved mountains to haul herself from 'scullery maid' to 'Lady Hamilton'.

Yes, she occasionally danced on tables naked to get ahead in life, but who hasn't? As a fellow naked dancer on tables, Shappi is inspired by Emma, although she never wants hair big enough to house mice in.

She has plenty to say, and says it with pointedness and potency - The Guardian

Star of Live at the Apollo, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, Have I Got News for You and Q.I, Shappi is on the road with her new sell out show.

She has whip-crack jokes and is effortlessly funny as she handles every subject with a razor-sharp wit, softened only by her deliciously mischievous delivery and endless charm.

Shappi is also the acclaimed author of A Beginners Guide to Acting English, and fantastic debut novel Nina is not OK. She is also the president of the British Humanist society.

We're impressed!

Box office: 01642 525 199
Show: 8:00pm / 16+





Not so long ago, it seemed highly unlikely the UK would vote to leave the EU; we had a reasonable opposition to the Tory Government; Donald Trump was a buffoon who surely wasn't going to beat Hilary Clinton and Mark was living the married suburban ideal. Then... it all went to absolute s***! But don't worry - Mark assures us that Every Little Thing's Gonna Be Alright.

Mark's sell-out show Who Do I Think I Am, revealed his natural father was a world backgammon champion. Now, the star of Radio 4's Mark Steel's in Town and newspaper columnist of the year, is back on the road with a new show, guaranteed to make the world seem even more mental than it is.

Mark has written and presented many series of Mark Steel's In Town on BBC Radio 4 (new series out soon) and toured it live around the UK. He has presented the BAFTA nominated Mark Steel Lectures for BBC2, is a regular on BBC One's Have I Got News for You and Radio 4's Newsquiz. Mark has also appeared on BBC2's QI and Room 101. He has written several acclaimed books, including: Reasons to Be Cheerful and What's Going On and writes a weekly column for The Independent for which he won Columnist of the Year at the Press Awards in 2015.

Mark recently started filming his columns for The Independent and not surprisingly they're proving very popular indeed, you can find them HERE

Doors: 8:00pm / 16+





After our two previous shows sold out literally months in advance Junk Box moves to the Point!

This is how it goes... One comedian, one box of miscellaneous items brought by the audience, zero prep time, 100% improvisation and a whole loada gags.

Junk Box is exactly what it says on the tin. We're going to have a box full of junk, Matt has to pull one item out at a time and make it funny. Whether it be an old DVD, a rude-looking vegetable, a newspaper cutting or a family heirloom - he'll find a way.

Bring something suitable (or unsuitable) along, sit back and enjoy an epically unpredictable improvised feast like nothing else you have ever seen!

Top tip: We can play any multi-media so movie clips or songs are fine.

Great news here, with a brand-new show from Mock the Week's one-liner kingpin, star of Live at the Apollo and TEN series on Radio 4 - Milton Jones is coming to Yarm!

Milton Jones is Out There.

No, really out there, and this time he hasn't just forgotten his keys.

Milton will be talking about his life so far - the ups, the downs, and why buying a see-saw was the best decision he ever made.

But perhaps he should give all this up and seek the highest office in the land - but how do you get a desk and a swivel chair up a mountain?

Oh and now he wants to be Prime Minister too. Can we do worse than the politicians we already have? Yes we can!

Join stand-up comedian, poet, improviser, and TV stalwart Phill Jupitus for an evening of tales, laughs and diversions. Watch in delight and/or horror as this experienced funny man drags laughs out of the chaos of his own life and the uncertain world that surrounds it.

Adult themes and situations, but delivered childishly.

Phill became a familiar face when he started as team captain on BBC2's pop quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks in 1996, which went on to run for 19 years. Aside from Never Mind the Buzzcocks and live stand-up shows all over the UK, he also appears as a regular guest on QI and Alan Davies As Yet Untitled, and in 2012 returned to television stand-up for the first time since 2000 with an appearance on Live at the Apollo.

In addition, he has presented numerous radio documentaries including, Phill Jupitus' Comic Strips, Calvin and Hobbes and The Man Who Bought Hendrix's Stage.

And what you might not know is that Phill is also an accomplished actor, treading the boards in West End and touring productions including A Midsummer's Night Dream, The Producers, and Hairspray. Busy boy!

Doors: 8:00pm / 18+





After storming his last sell-out show at ARC - we've got Jason straight back in again, for a brand-new date, by public demand!

Jason Cook is one of the best-loved MC's at ARC's hugely popular Catch 22 Comedy Club, he's the star and writer of BBC's award-winning comedy show Hebburn and guess what - he's got quite the set of pipes on him too!

Jason's last show at ARC sold out months in advance. Again - we can expect a chaotic mix of quick-fire stand up, audience participation and (trust us) hilarious anecdotal songs.

We could call it a variety show but, well, it's unlike any variety show you've seen before. Jason is joined by his 'Geordie Rat Pack' collaborator Glen Roughead, who accompanies Jason on guitar, vocals and general banter.

This brand-new show is a must for stand-up fans and, if the last gig is anything to go by, this show will no doubt sell fast!

Wonderfully life-affirming... Total and utter joy. - Time Out

He's absolutely stormed it here before, and we can't wait to welcome Jon Richardson back to Middlesbrough Town Hall with his brand-new show!

The British Comedy Award nominee and star of Live At The Apollo and 8 Out Of 10 Cats is embarking on a nationwide tour to complain about the state of the world and offer no solutions.

Since his last show he has become a husband and father, seen the UK vote to leave the EU and watched the rise of Donald Trump, all of which leaves him asking one question, why does it seem that no one else alive can correctly load a dishwasher?

Come and see what Jon Richardson can do with words when he has more than thirty seconds to work with. Or should that be with which to work?

A string of top TV credits including 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Have I Got News For You, Live At The Apollo, Channel 4's Comedy Gala and Taskmaster have all helped establish Jon as one of the funniest and best loved comics in the country.

Jon Richardson is developing into a quietly sophisticated comedian who is at turns hilarious and disturbing, and under no circumstances should you miss. - The Mirror

Russell Brand Re:Birth

[Rescheduled Date]


Thu 31 May
Middlesbrough Town Hall

Tickets: £27.50 + BF (Max 6 tickets per transaction)

Box office: 01642 729 729 or 01642 81 51 81
Doors: 8:00pm / 16+





Russell Brand Rescheduled

Middlesbrough date now 2 months earlier!

Due to unavoidable commitments of both a professional and personal nature, Russell Brand has been forced to move a handful of dates planned for the summer of 2018.

This means that his show at Middlesbrough Town Hall, originally scheduled for Wednesday 25 July next year, has now been brought forward to Thursday 31 May.

Russell has offered his sincere apologies, and the good news is that he has pledged 'to make the show 20% funnier at no extra cost!'

All tickets remain valid for the rescheduled show, and existing ticketholders who wish to attend the new date need take no further action.

All existing ticket holders are being contacted directly, and refunds will be available to those unable to attend the rescheduled show, with a cut-off date for refunds of Friday 29 September.

What is real? Who are we? Where did this baby come from?

In Re:Birth, Russell Brand wrestles with these questions while unravelling the matrix of modern media, politics, sex, fatherhood and death. Join one of comedy's fiercest talents as he tries to make sense of life having just made a new one.

Describing the show, Russell said: How do we make sense of the madness of our lives once we become parents? What am I going to tell my daughter about conformity and responsibility? What happens if she grows up to be like me or, worse, date someone like me?

Since rising to fame in 2003, Russell Brand has established himself as one of the world's most celebrated stand-up comedians.

Aside from stand-up, Russell is also a phenomenally successful broadcaster, actor, author, podcaster, columnist, political commentator as well as mental health and drug rehabilitation activist.

Rich Hall:

Rich Hall's Hoedown


Fri 08 Jun
Yarm: Princess Alexandra Auditorium

Tickets: £17.00

Box office: 01642 792 587
Doors: 8:00pm / 18+






Great news - stand-up legend Rich Hall is coming to Yarm!

The grouchy deadpan genius has been described as a transatlantic messenger lampooning each country he visits, and he was the inspiration behind Matt Groening's character Moe Szylak from The Simpsons.

Let's face it, there has never been a better time to be an American comedian in the UK, and Hall's precision dismantling of the tenuous relationship between the two countries is as freewheeling and deadly accurate as ever.

His BBC Four documentaries, most recently Rich Hall's Countrier Than You and Rich Hall's Presidential Grudge Match, and BBC Radio 4 series Rich Hall's (US Election) Breakdown have built him a new legion of followers, as have appearances on Have I Got News For You and QI. But if you've only ever seen Hall on TV, you've short-changed yourself.

The Hoedown begins as a withering dissection of Trump's America, but ends up being a celebration of Americana. There's stand-up, improvised ballads, cracking good musicianship, and ultimately a hilarious, foot-stomping, shit-kicking good time to be had by all. Even if you don't own a hoe.

As close as it gets to a guaranteed good show. - Scotland on Sunday

And now Daliso Chaponda is bringing his brand-new stand-up show right here to Middlesbrough as part of his keenly anticipated debut tour.

The Malawian born stand-up was a huge hit on this year's Britain's Got Talent, capturing the nation's hearts and garnering over 8 million Facebook views and 9 million on Youtube.

And, with bags of TV in the offing, he's also just been confirmed for his own Radio 4 series Daliso Chaponda: Citizen of Nowhere.

Buy Online: Middlesbrough Town Hall / Ticketmaster


He's back!

And, although it's been a busy few years for Jason since his last smash-hit stand up show, fans of his popular Absolute Radio show will know that he hasn't changed a bit.

'Muddle Class' promises to feature a wealth of new material about Jason growing up 'working class' then finding, over the years, that part of him has become 'middle class' - causing much confusion along the way.

Jason said: Somebody said to me on my Facebook page, 'it's been ages since you toured.' I thought 'no way, it was last year wasn't it?

Anyway, long story short, they were right, it was years ago. I just got fooled cos I've been on tour doing musicals and the last tour is repeated on Dave ja Vu 13 times a day!

So I've been putting some stuff together, looking at my life and how it's changed over the years, how the world has changed, and how my parents haven't changed a bit! It's going to be a great tour, and I can't wait to see everyone there.

A string of top TV credits including 8 Out of 10 Cats, Sunday Night at the Palladium, Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News For You, QI and the Royal Variety Performance have all helped establish Jason as one of the country's best loved comics.

Great news - stand-up legend Ross Noble is heading for Middlesbrough Town Hall next year with a brand-new show!

Who is El Hablador? It's Ross Noble.

No, but who is the one they call El Hablador? I just said, it's Ross Noble. You know? Long hair, does stand-up where he dances about the stage, spinning out all the nonsense in his head into a show.

But what is the legend of El Hablador? I don't think it's a thing. It's clearly Ross coming up with a name for his show, so he can make out like he is some sort of mysterious shadowy figure.

Ok, I get it.

Ross Noble returns to dance around the stage spinning out all the nonsense in his head into a hilarious stand-up show. At some point he may wander into a shadowy part of the stage and look a bit shadowy.

Book now to see the one they call El Hablador*

*Ross is the only one that calls himself El Hablador.
