It will be held at the Town Hall Theatre on Saturday, December 10.

Peter Vincent of promoters Ten Feet Tall is looking forward to a wonderful night of comedy.

He said: “It’s a great way to round off a cracking year, and we’re in for a top night here.

“Tom Houghton has been smashing the comedy circuit as part of comedy super-group The Noise Next Door. Now he’s going it alone and leaving comedy crowds up and down the land in stitches.”

Kai Humphries.

He said he was delighted to welcome him to Hartlepool as the special guest master of ceremonies.

Peter added: “It’s always great to have Daliso Chaponda around. He’s been known to jump on planes and tell jokes all over the world, he’s gone down a storm at the Edinburgh and Melbourne Comedy Festivals, and now he’s going down a storm all over the UK too.

“And Kai Humphries is just amazing. Warm and truly lovable, a winning mix of jokes, stories and bundles of enthusiasm – it’s no wonder he’s flying up the comedy ladder.

“That’s a great line-up at any time of the year, but a real bonus for Xmas. We can’t wait to get cracking on the night.”
