Russell Howard’s Good News star Ray Peacock will be bringing his critically-acclaimed show, Here Comes Trouble, to The Witham in Barnard Castle on Saturday 28 March.
Described by The Guardian as “incessantly hilarious”, the triple Chortle Award nominated comedian and storyteller takes you through a myriad of mischief and misdemeanours in an attempt to get to the bottom of what on earth drives a grown man to such infantile behaviour.
Award-winning stand-up Ahir Shah will also be performing on the night, as he presents Texture, the best show at the 2014 Leicester Comedy Festival.
Still just 23, Shah has been on the circuit for more than six years - and this show establishes him as a sophisticated comedian with an elegant, eloquent style that probes beyond the superficial.
Ahir, a Cambridge graduate, is a comedian whose sharp, intellectual brand of stand-up features a blend of emotional frankness, poetic language, and jokes.
Peter Dixon, of Funny Way To Be Comedy Club, said: "In this show we wanted to bring two well established and polished performances that have already received critical acclaim at top comedy festivals in the UK. Having seen both Ray and Ahir a number of times at the Edinburgh Festival I know we are going to be in for a real treat with this double header show."
The festival stars head to Barnard Castle as part of Funny Way To Be Comedy Club's blockbuster comedy programme at The Witham.
They joins the likes of Mock The Week star Gary Delaney, Hebburn creator Jason Cook, and Phoenix Nights star Justin Moorhouse in the market town over the coming months.
