Right that's the details done, now here is our fabulous line up!!!

Stephanie Laing - Now a regular on the circuit, Stephanie has also become a stalwart of comedy festivals across the country having appeared at Brighton Fringe, Leicester, York and Bath comedy festivals, and more, as well as appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe every year since 2010. Not content with just performing in the UK Stephanie has also appeared at UCB in New York & The Laugh Factory in LA. Most recently in 2018, she took her solo show 'Mad About The Boy' to the Melbourne, Adelaide & Perth comedy festivals.

Gareth Richards - has been nominated for one of the highest awards in the industry (The Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer 2010), has co-hosted an award winning radio breakfast show (The Frank Skinner Show on Absolute Radio), appeared numerous times on TV (Live At The Electric, Russell Howards Good News, The Dog Ate My Homework), and supported some of the biggest names in comedy on tour (Frank Skinner, Jenny Eclair, Rhod Gilbert, Lee Mack, Milton Jones)

Tadiwa Mahlunge - was born in Zimbabwe before growing up in Cardiff. After spending his whole life in two colonies, it's a bummer for him to now call London home. When his plans to have a career as a professional physicist were dashed, after he was told he would never make the grades for Oxbridge, his obvious second choice was standup.

Howard Walker - Self confessed metal head proffering oodles of onstage warmth and dry wit. Comedy Cellar New Yorkshire Comedian of the Year 2015, Beat the Frog Semi Finalist 2015 and Hilarity Bites Finalist 2016.

Tegan Marlow - is a stand up comedian from London, now living and performing in Manchester. A semi finalist in the 2020 Max Turner Prize, her anecdotal and observational-style comedy explores the usual realms of sex and dating as well as the slightly less usual realms of motorway services, astrology and politically-minded pets.

Jon Capewell - Scouser Jon has appeared at the Comedy Store, is a regular in Liverpool's Hot Water Comedy Club, and tours the UK comedy circuit at the likes of Manford's Comedy Club nights. Described as 'quick witted and engaging', he's likely to bring his love of football to Cumbria - he's a Red, for the record.

Entry fee: Discount Tickets £10 / Pay on the Door £15 (£10 when mentioning Rochdale Online)
