Matt Reed, Rob Deering, Ian Smith and Tony Wright will be leading the way at the Hot Potato Comedy Club, held at the Town Hall Theatre, on Saturday, October 28.

Ella Willis, of promoters Ten Feet Tall, said: “We have another absolutely belting line-up this month, and we’re in for a real Saturday night treat.

“Matt Reed needs no introduction to Hartlepool’s comedy fans, he always goes down an absolute storm here in town and he has a fantastic bunch of comics to welcome on stage.

“A winning mix of bubbling enthusiasm, easy charm and razor-sharp wit never fails to leave comedy crowds in stitches, and it’s helped Rob Deering become one of the most in-demand headliners in the country.

“And, still fresh from bagging a stash of glowing reviews from the Edinburgh Fringe, it’s glaringly obvious to comedy bigwigs all over the country that Ian Smith is going to be huge.

“Critics reckon it’s only a matter of time before his inevitable jump to the big time, and who are we to disagree? Catch him here while you can - we know you’re going to love him to bits.”

Ella added that newcomer Tony Wright will also be performing and they are looking forward to a fantastic evening.

The event will start at 8pm and is for 18 and over only. Early bird tickets a week in advance are £7 or £10 standard.
