A laugh a minute at The Civic!

A brand new comedy season has kicked off at The Civic, and it promises to be the funniest yet!

Loved by all, regular Barnsley visitor and comedian Toby Foster (pictured) is making a return on Saturday, 28 January with his Last Laugh Comedy Club. The Civic supporter will present a great night of laughter, hosting some of the best comedians from the UK and international circuit

One of the longest running comedy clubs in Yorkshire, you can guarantee it will have you splitting your sides with the best that comedy has to offer. Follow The Civic on Facebook and Twitter to be the first to hear when the line-up is announced.

Also coming to The Civic is award-winning stand-up Gary Delaney with his new show ‘There’s Something About Gary’ on Saturday 11 February. That something is he likes to write and perform jokes – an awful lot of them. And he thinks a good joke should be like a drunk Glaswegian, short and punchy.

Through Twitter and TV he’s become one of the most quotable comedians in the country.  He loves each and every gag and you can’t help but be carried away by his infectious charm. He’s like a cheeky schoolboy who can barely hide his glee with each and every punch line.

A regular on Mock The Week, he has won two Sony Awards, as well as receiving a Chortle Award nomination. He’s also a regular writer for shows including Cats Does Countdown, A League Of Their Own, Live At The Apollo and The Royal Variety Performance, and his jokes have twice appeared in Dave’s Top 10 Funniest Jokes from the Edinburgh Fringe.

Finally, to top off the beginning of a great new season of comedy Iain Sterling is here on Saturday 25 February with his new show Onwards!

You may recognise his voice as the narrator of ITV2’s “Love Island” or recognise his face as the host of Scottish BAFTA (best children’s show) award winning panel show “The Dog Ate my Homework” (CBBC). Other credits include The Now Show (Radio 4), Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central and Drunk History (Comedy Central).

In his new show, Iain explores the perception of his generation within today’s society, as well as looking at their function within it. Are all young people self-entitled, ego maniacs that can’t get off their phones? Come to the show and find out… Or just google it or something.
