Frazer Theatre Comedy Club
The Frazer Theatre Comedy Club finishes off the year in style, with a headline act who has been much requested by our audiences over the last two years, a returning face who has sky-rocketed since appearing on our very first show, a Britain’s Got Talent star and one of the hottest comperes on the circuit. As is our Christmas tradition, we’ll also be serving mince pies and mulled wine because, well, we love mince pies and mulled wine!

Tickets are £10 in advance and are available from The Old Chemist Shop, Market Place, Knaresborough, by calling 07835 927965 (payment will be taken over the phone) or from our online box office at www.frazertheatre.co.uk
Doors open at 7.30pm. Show starts at 8pm.

Joining us this month are:

Medically qualified Paul Sinha is now a critically acclaimed international stand up comedian of many years standing who first achieved media recognition in 2006 when his solo show Saint or Sinha was nominated for the If.comedy (formerly Perrier) award at the Edinburgh Festival. Since then he has been something of a fixture on Radio 4 with the series Paul Sinha’s Citizenship Test and Paul Sinha’s History Revision as well as one off shows on cricket, the 2012 Olympics and Magna Carta. He has also made frequent appearances on Radio 4 favourites News Quiz, Just a Minute, and The Now Show and has registered several victories on Radio 5’s feisty weekly sports panel show Just a Minute.

As a live comic, Paul has performed several extremely well received solo shows, has had two national tours, performed in Beijing, Munich, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Tokyo as well as many non Olympic cities across the globe. He appeared in the first two series of the Stewart Lee curated tv show Alternative Comedy Experience and in 2014 Paul was voted “Best Club Comedian” in the annual Chortle Awards.

In addition to this Paul has carved out a further career as a professional quizzer, attaining grandmaster status in 2014, reaching a career high UK ranking of 7 in 2015. Since 2011 Paul has been one of the regular “Chasers” on ITV’s award winning quiz show The Chase.

Brennan Reece was crowned English Comedian Of The Year 2015, a year after being a finalist in the BBC Radio New Comedy Awards. A Birmingham School of Acting graduate, he turned to stand-up in 2010 and won the Beat The Frog World Series in Manchester that same year.

Having taken the middle slot in our first ever show in November 2014, Brennan has enjoyed a meteoric rise through the comedy ranks, enjoying highly successful Edinburgh runs and recently acting as support for Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally at the 3,600 seat Hammersmith Apollo. Brennan now makes a very welcome return to the Frazer Theatre, bringing his quirky and playful style to Knaresborough once more.

Jack is most widely known for his storming appearances on Britain’s Got Talent in 2013, when his self-scripted up carried him all the way to the runners-up position. Far from being a flash in the pan novelty act, Jack has continued to hone his craft in the intervening years, winning the respect of audiences and peers when he could so easily have been dismissed. Following a run at the coveted Comedy Reserve showcase in Edinburgh this Summer, Jack is making his debut appearance at the Frazer Theatre.

Lancashire comedian, Katie Mulgrew has forged a fearsome reputation for herself as both performer and compere, performing across the country to critical acclaim.

Katie has been seen as tour support for The Boy With Tape On His Face and Vikki Stone and written for The News Quiz amongst many other radio credits.

She won the inaugural 2015 Liverpool Hope playwrighting prize and is currently working with the Liverpool Royal Court Theatre and Unity theatre in bringing her play to the stage.

Exhibitions Eileen Cooper RA: Hide and Seek
A major Autumn exhibition at The Mercer Art Gallery will feature drawings by Eileen Cooper RA, the first woman Keeper of the Royal Academy of Arts, London. Whilst Cooper is best known for her richly coloured and expressive paintings and prints, Hide and Seek will present rarely-seen drawings made in a variety of media including charcoal, pencil, pastel and ink.

This is a superb opportunity to view a large selection of poetic, bold and figurative drawings by Eileen Cooper RA spanning almost 40 years of her career. This remarkable body of work illustrates how Cooper’s distinctive imagery has developed through making drawings that explore such subjects as sexuality, birth, family, fecundity and creativity. Organised in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Arts the exhibition is another major achievement for the Mercer, which has a reputation for promoting the work of female artists.

During the exhibition Eileen Cooper will be talking about her work at the Mercer Art Gallery on Monday 17 October 2016 at 2pm. Tickets £7, to book call 01423 556188.
