We're back with a bumper Bank Holiday dose of comedy.

We're joined by the fantastic Tez Ilyas. A British Muslim, his comedy is current, political and very, very funny. From his brilliantly reviewed TEZ Talks on Radio 4 last year to his appearances on everything from The One Show to Live from the BBC, he's taking the comedy world by storm.

Sharp timely satire - The Independent

Mike Wilkinson is one of our absolute favourite MCs at Stokesley and we're delighted to welcome him back after our April break.

Oldham comedian Alex Boardman not only writes for some of the top TV shows on your screens, he is also a much in demand warm up artist. He's just done five nights with one of his footballing idol Eric Cantona at The Lowry in Manchester and the London Palladium. Next gig - warm up for An Evening with boxer Anthony Joshua!

His tall tales can lead anywhere on any given night - The Times

A rare mixture of wit and charm - The Guardian

Probably the quickest I've ever seen, certainly the funniest - The Big Issue

MC Jason Cook needs no introduction. Writer of BBC2 comedy Hebburn and absolute star of the circuit, he'll be introducing the fantastic John Hastings plus one other tbc

Canadian John Hastings is a fantastic observer of the peculiar quirks of the British way of life. Warm, funny and a great story teller. Here he is in action.

You're going to love our act in the middle tonight. One of the fastest rising comics in the North, Rob Mulholland is a very odd man who is much less creepy than he looks. He is very tall and very funny. His jokes are rapid-fire, his jeans are too tight and his jackets were once owned by dead men.

Comedian Rhys James may be young but he's already notched up more radio and TV appearances than most comics twice his age. Mock the Week. Check. Russell Howard's Stand Up Central. Check. Radio 4s Don't Make Me Laugh. Football Tonight with George Lamb - yes he's THAT guy.

He's been named one of the 'Top 30 Funny People to Follow on Twitter' by The Telegraph, described as a 'sickeningly talented young stand up' by Time Out and 'destined for great things' by the Guardian. Remember where you saw him first! Here he is in action.

Unbelievably clever, deftly executed and outrageously funny - Broadway Baby

Comedian Rhys James may be young but he's already notched up more radio and TV appearances than most comics twice his age. Mock the Week. Check. Russell Howard's Stand Up Central. Check. Radio 4s Don't Make Me Laugh. Football Tonight with George Lamb - yes he's THAT guy.

Our last show before our summer break and it's a cracker!

If you're think our MC Tom Houghton looks familiar, you may recognise him as 1/5th of comedy super group The Noise Next Door who have been smashing the comedy circuit for years.

Comedy gold... staggeringly well executed - The Guardian

We're delighted to welcome Tom to Stokesley as MC tonight - he absolutely smashed Saltburn earlier this year. You're going to love him!

Callum Oakley is our act in the middle tonight. He made his TV debut in 2012 getting through to the semi-finals of Britain's Got Talent with a performance that caused judge David Walliams to remark I've never seen a stand-up comic so young and so brilliant.

Mock The Week's Gary Delaney is king of the one liner he's also a double Sony Award winner, a Chortle Finalist and the only comic to have two jokes in Dave's Top 10 from Edinburgh Fringe at the same time.

More quality jokes in one hour than many comics have in their entire careers…quite brilliant - The Scotsman

I laughed and I laughed and I laughed… A master craftsman - The Times

Liverpool favourite Ste Porter is a natural born comedian. Affable, easy on the ear and very entertaining.

A ready wit. - BBC Leeds

A very clever act - Metro
