WITH two successful shows under his belt, young Harrogate promoter Tom Taylor is determined to maintain momentum into his third night of live comedy.

Tom, a stand-up comic himself, will be joined at the St George Hotel on Wednesday, October 12, by a stellar line-up for the latest sitting room night.

Included are, Hattie Hayridge, star of Red Dwarf and Have I Got News for You, Stephen Carlin, writer for The News Quiz and The Now Show, plus headline act, Dan Antopolski.

Tom said: “As with the previous two sitting room shows, this promises to be a fantastic and hilarious night of entertainment. ”

Though the line-up speaks for itself in terms of quality, Tom provided a number of other reasons why people should make a point of being at next month’s show.

He said: “October is a notably gloomy month. The weather changes, leaves fall and pumpkins are disfigured. It is also the awareness month for breast cancer, domestic violence and depression, so why not cheer yourself up by laughing, eating and drinking at sitting room?

After the success of his last headliner, Paul Foot, Tom is confident Dan Antopolski can fill his comedy shoes.

“For a headline act you can’t get much better than Dan. His contributions and performances on radio and television are incredibly well crafted: The World Comedy Series, Flight Of The Conchords, The Dan Antopolski Radio Show, all six series of Out To Lunch, Strings with Tim Minchin, the list is endless!

“In 2009, he also won the prize for the funniest joke of the Fringe, so this guy is seriously funny!

With the Harrogate Comedy Festival also taking place throughout October at Harrogate Theatre, sitting room is doing its bit to help make the town the laughs capital of the north.

Tickets for the sitting room show at the St George Hotel, Harrogate at 8pm on Wednesday, October 12 are priced at £10 and are available from www.sittingroomcomedy.com
