Catch 22 Comedy Club: John Fothergill, Danny McLoughlin, Steve Gribbin, Hannah Silvester
"Starring MC Danny Mcloughlin, John Fothergill, Steve Gribbin and Hannah Silvester
This month join MC Danny McLoughlin and a host of hilarious stand up comedians for the best night out in Stockton.
Catch22 favourite and leading MC Danny Mcloughlin is heading up hosting duties. His innate comic timing and confident stage presence combined with a finely tuned ability to react and think on his feet make for a winning comic recipe. This combination means Danny is widely regarded as one of the best MCs on the circuit and a regular compere for the coveted Edinburgh Comedy Award Galas.
John Fothergill was born to be on the stage. Effortlessly funny, he combines witty banter with shed loads of Geordie charm.
'A top comedy turn and a right funny bloke' - The Sun
'Everything he says is funny' - The Guardian
Steve Gribbin is a diminutive guitar-wielding satirist from Liverpool whose scabrous comedy songs and off the wall observations have made him one of the firm favourites of the comedy circuit. Steve's original comedy songs combine razor sharp lyrics with tunes that put their foot in the door of your mind and refuse to leave.
Firmly based in rock 'n' roll and refusing to pull no punches, these are not the 'oh so witty' ditties of penguin-suited plink plonk piano playing posh gobs. They are that rarity - comedy songs which are actually funny.
Hannah Silvester has been performing for around six years. Based in Birmingham, she is a regular on the West Midlands comedy circuit and is busy gigging around the country for many comedy clubs and promoters.
Her set combines frank and honest material with a warm delivery and the occasional comedy song thrown into the mix.
She’s a woman with a lot of attitude, and a way of expressing it that is often hilariously blunt. She revels in her bad parenting, is withering about sexist behaviour, and frank about ageing.
In 2014 she won the Breakthrough Act Award at the Midlands Comedy Awards."

'One of comedy's unsung heroes. Geordie singer, rude, provocative, daft and cheeky...'

With an amiable, confident stage presence and a well written set, Danny delivers material with more than just an immediate pay-off line, preferring to take the joke one or two steps further.
Confident enough to take a risk on stage he does so not to the detriment of the audience, keeping them laughing along or hanging on every word.
A bright future surely awaits.
'McLoughlin's main weapon is his audacity: he's so bold he can recite an advertising jingle and still get plenty of laughs' (Chortle).

'The vertically-challenged Scouser with a guitar, savage lyrics and a voice that will break your heart (if not your crockery); topical, incisive, witty and bloody-minded.' (Glee)

For nine years Steve was the smaller one in the dynamic comedy duo Skint Video, stalwart's of the Edinburgh Festival, appearing on countless television programmes such as Saturday Live, radio such as The Mary Whitehouse Experience, and their own show in 1992/3 Songlines (BBC Radio 1). Skint Video went their different ways in 1993, since when Steve has been storming across the UK and Ireland as a solo artiste.
"A highly refreshing and original comic” (The Scotsman).
“Satirical songs pulled off with real aplomb” (The Independent).
