LINEUP SUBJECT TO CHANGE (ticket holders will be contacted in the event of a change to headliner)

One of the top comedy club nights in the country, The Comedy Network, returns to Selby in 2024.

Each event will feature an MC, opener act and headliner for the bargain price of just £10.

Headliner – Matt Richardson

Award-winning stand up comedian Matt Richardson started performing at 18 years old, making him one of the youngest comedians on the circuit at the time. He was soon a finalist in two national stand up competitions – So You Think You’re Funny? and the Chortle Student Comedy Award.

Matt is now a fixture at all the major comedy clubs in the UK and has performed overseas on countless occasions. His many TV appearances include co-hosting the Xtra Factor (ITV), Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC Two), Celebrity Juice (ITV), Sweat the Small Stuff (BBC Three), Big Brothers Bit on the Side (Channel 5) and I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here Now! (ITV2).

He is confident and engaging, applauded by audiences for his sleek but contemporary presentation, brash personality and self-deprecating humour. A huge hit with young audiences Matt Richardson is one of the rising stars of stand-up comedy and is set to become one of the most popular comedians working the British comedy circuit.

Opener – Dee Allum

Dee Allum is an award-winning stand-up comedian and writer.

Dee started her comedy career performing sketches with the Cambridge Footlights and wrote the prestigious Footlights Pantomime in 2018. Dee has also written and performed a 45-minute solo stand-up show, and has performed on the UK Comedy circuit, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and at Latitude Festival.

In the last two years Dee has been nominated for Best Newcomer at the Chortle Awards, placed as runner up in the Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year award 2021, won the 2Northdown New Act Competition 2021 and was a finalist in the 2022 BBC New Comedy Award competition.

MC – Raj Poojara

Raj Poojara is a comedy newcomer taking the UK live circuit by storm. His first performance at London’s Backyard Comedy Club went so well that his second gig was in front of a sold-out theatre as a headline’s opening act.

Raj spent his first year in comedy entering every competition he could find and to great success; finalist at ‘Rising Star’ New Comedian of the Year, ‘Go New York’ at South Ken Comedy Club and the Max Turner Award. Semi-finalist at Get Up! Stand Up! New Comedian of the year and ‘So You Think You’re Funny?’

As Raj says, ‘always the bridesmaid, never the bride’…
