Catch 22 Comedy Club is back for the funniest night out on Teesside and more socially distanced laughs.
Our MC tonight is loveable Geordie Barry Dodds who charms audiences with his unique brand of disarming wit and wry, down-to-earth observational humour.
Self-confessed comedy geek Barry took to the comedy stage at the tender age of 21 and soon had audiences eating out of the palm of his hand using his own combination of irrepressibly cheeky, and surprisingly dark, material.
‘Hugely enjoyable..a ton of great stories..one to watch.’ – The Guardian
Welsh comedian Matt Rees has generated a huge buzz over the past few years with his unique brand of well-crafted gags and acerbic delivery. The rising star has won a whole host of awards including Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year and Leicester Square Comedian of The Year and been nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer.
‘A properly original comedy mind.’ – The Guardian
Comedian in the middle is a rising star from the Midlands, Tal Davies.
Our headliner tonight is the brilliant Nick Doody.
Nick has been performing comedy since the 90s when, as a student, he got off to a pretty good start by supporting the legendary Bill Hicks, at Bill’s request. A little later, Nick was a finalist in Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny? competition.
Since then he has performed all over the world: Ireland, France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Estonia… You get the idea. He was the first British comedian to perform in Croatia.
Nick has appeared on various radio and TV shows and is also much in demand as a writer. He has penned jokes for Joan Rivers, Lenny Henry, Dame Edna Everage and an uncomfortable number of Mock The Week regulars.
‘Some of the best political material I have heard in a while…comic genius.’ – The Scotsman
‘A refreshing change…sharp witted, but never sharp-tongued.’ – Three Weeks
