A side-splitting summer scorcher here, with huge Hot Potato favourite Matt Reed hosting a typically fab Saturday night.

Daliso Chaponda has just wowed millions of TV fans - with Simon Cowell describing him as the 'best comedian' Britain's Got Talent has ever seen after his third-place finish in the grand final of BGT 2017 last month.

And during his epic run to the final, Amanda Holden said he was ‘bloody hilarious, self-deprecating, funny and relevant.'

Fellow BGT judge David Walliams reckons it's just a matter of time before he's snapped up by the TV bigwigs, so catch him here while you still can.

Tickets: £26.00 + BF

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!

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.
