Now Wozniak, who recently starred in Channel 4’s Man Down, is bringing Take The Hit to The Witham in Barnard Castle on Saturday 26 April in collaboration with Funny Way To Be Comedy Club.
Peter Dixon, of Funny Way To Be, said: “Mike’s show was one of the very best at last year’s Edinburgh Festival.
“As he’s doing a short 12 date tour I was thrilled when he asked to come to Barnard Castle alongside the other dates at cities across the UK.
“I am sure the people of Teesdale will love the wonderful character he has created.”
Take The Hit centres on Mike’s personal life, which has not exactly gone according to Plan A.
Most distressingly, his wife’s parents have permanently moved into his tiny home; a home that wasn’t quite big enough for him, his wife and his two year old daughter without two more people and their life time’s collection of brick-a-brack.
Mike Wozniak recently said, “I can’t wait to come to Teesdale to perform the show. I’m doing a short tour of only 11 dates spread over several months. I’m not even able to return to the Edinburgh Festival this year as I’m recording a second series of ‘Man Down’ for Channel 4 in June and July.”
Described by the Sunday Express as “poignant, hilarious and a little bit wrong, just like his alter ego,” this is a show for anyone and everyone – except Mike’s mother-in-law!
Support on the night comes from top stand-up comedian Nish Kumar, who travels to Teesdale on the back of his Best Show nomination at the 2013 Leicester Comedy Festival.
Kumar was also a big hit at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, and recently filmed an episode of Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience for Comedy Central.
Dixon added: “I met Nish when he performed his show at last year’s Leicester Comedy Festival and we’ve been trying to find a date in his busy diary since then. He’s at the Melbourne Comedy Festival the four weeks before he visits us. To include Nish in this show makes it a real double header of top comedy talent.”
