Hartlepool’s Hot Potato Comedy Club has announced its new season of autumn Saturday night specials starting this weekend.

Live at the Apollo star Tom Stade is just one of a string of top comics to appear at the Town Hall Theatre.

Peter Vincent, of promoters Ten Feet Tall, said: “We’ve got some absolute belters coming to Hartlepool in our brand new season.

“Matt Reed, Danny McLoughlin and Ray Peacock are all back to MC some top nights, and the line-ups just keep getting better and better.

“It’s hard to choose any particular highlights – but deffo watch out for Tom Stade in October. He comes to us direct from Live at the Apollo and The John Bishop show, and we’re over the moon to have bagged him for a very rare club date.

“It’s also worth keeping an eye open for Pete Johansson in September, Steve Gribbin is a proper circuit legend and he’ll be ripping it up in November, and wonderful cockney geezer Jeff Innocent will be storming our Christmas Special in December.”

The line up is:

Saturday: Ray Peacock (MC), plus Pete Johansson, Mark Maier and Paul Imrie. 8pm. (£7 early bird a week in advance/£9 thereafter).

Saturday, October 24: Danny McLoughlin (MC), plus Tom Stade and special guest tbc. 8pm (prices as above).

Saturday, November 28: Matt Reed (MC), plus Steve Gribbin & Benny Boot. 8pm (prices as above).

Saturday, December 12: Xmas Special, starring Danny McLoughlin (MC), plus Jeff Innocent & Mark Nelson. 8pm (£12).
