MC Danny McLoughlin is back for another top night of comedy shenanigans with the fantastic Mark Maier, Brian Griffiths and Aaron Twitchen.

Mark Maier has a string of TV and radio credits to his name and he's also taught and performed improvisation with none other than the fantastic Catherine Tate.

It's high time someone gave him a TV show of his own - The Guardian

Brian Griffiths is a hard drinking, ginger Scot who has more funny in his little finger than most comics on the circuit can only dream of. Often compared to a young Billy Connelly, he combines shed loads of Celtic passion with killer material.

Daft but very funny - The Guardian

The people's favourite comedian - The Stage

Our middle act tonight is the wonderfully OTT Aaron Twitchen - you're going to love him.

Line-ups subject to change. Not for the easily offended.

Our act in the middle is a bit of a coup. If you're a Britain's Got Talent fan you'll know Cal Halbert as one half of the fantastic Mimic Men. Here he is in action

Gin monster Matt Reed is back at the helm tonight and he'll be introducing one of our absolute favourite acts Rob Deering

Bags loads of charm, a great singing voice and razor sharp wit - it doesn't get any better than this. You might recognise him from his winning performance on Celebrity Mastermind - if you haven't seen him perform Coffee, you're in for an absolute treat (although you'll be singing it for months!)

Truly wonderful stand-up - The Sunday Times

As sharp and versatile as a Swiss Army Knife - The Independent

Bruisingly hilarious... brilliant musical comedian - Time Out

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

Our comic in the middle tonight is the up and coming Eliott Steel. He might only be 20 but he's already being tipped for great things - not that you'd expect anything different when your Dad happens to be the comedian Mark Steel!

A bit of a coup tonight for fans of Game of Thrones as we welcome Ben Crompton aka Lord Commander on the Wall as our middle act. Superstar in the house - don't say we're not good to you!

Paul Pirie is our man on the mic tonight. He's been going down an absolute storm in Boro so we're stealing him tonight for our show by the sea.

Rob Deering opens proceedings with his mad cap musical comedy. Bag loads of charm, a great singing voice and razor sharp wit - it doesn't get any better than this.

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

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.

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
