Catch 22 Halloween Special: Rob Deering & Chris Washington plus MC Ian Smith
Each month Ten Feet Tall team up with us to bring the Catch 22 Comedy Club to Teesside. The club sees a mixture of familiar faces and some of the freshest talent around take to the stage for an unforgettable night of top-quality comedy.
This October, comedian, musician and writer Rob Deering turns things up to 11, using his trusty guitar and loop pedal to create impressive soundscapes, as well as telling incredibly funny jokes – of course.
A razor-sharp wit, clownish physicality – served with instrumental and vocal trimmings are what make seeing Rob’s stand-up live, a unique experience.
“Ingenious and hilarious” – The Guardian
Stand-up comedian, compere, actor, presenter – the list is endless.
October’s MC: Ian Smith is wonderfully inventive, with an ability to make peculiar and semi-surreal situations seem totally credible.
Ian has appeared on BBC3 panel show Sweat the Small Stuff and has had a number of hits at Edinburgh Fringe Festival which have collectively won him a load of critical acclaim as well as some shiny awards. You might have heard Ian as one third of top-charting Dave podcast, The Magic Sponge, alongside Rob Beckett.
“You’d do well to catch him now before his inevitable jump to the big time” – The Telegraph
Edinburgh Fringe Best Newcomer nominee and professional realist Chris Washington’s debut show Dream Big (Within Reason) went down extremely well with critics and punters alike. His simplistic take on joke-telling and indeed on life paired with his northern charm is bound to win crowds over time and time again.
“A timeless storytelling joke-smith.” – Beyond the Joke
