Show details:

Halls of Ridiculous

The Halls of Ridiculous

The Halls of Ridiculous are a northern comedy duo who push the boundaries of improv, sketch and character creativity to the max with their quick thinking scenes, zany special guests and quirky approach to performance.

Featuring Chris Lumb (BBC Three's Russell Howard's Good News) and Phil Allan-Smith (BBC One's This is My House), and with recent sold out shows at Leicester Comedy Festival and the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe, who knows what to expect... they don't even know... but whatever it is... it WILL be ridiculous!

“Brilliant character work mixed with superb improv” - ★★★★ - Hull Comedy Festival

“The world needs more daftness and the halls of ridiculous provide it in bucket loads. Just brilliantly funny” - Vaun Earl Norman, Vic & Bob's Big Night Out

“An amazing show of comedy, characters & sketches. Brilliant, very funny” - Patrick Monahan


Anth Young

Anth Young

Anth Young is one of the hottest new acts in the North East, having finished highly in a raft of new act competitions in the last few years, as well as performing to huge audiences in theatres around the country as tour support to Carl Hutchinson.

A regular at comedy clubs around the UK, Anth's career has really blossomed since finishing as runner-up in the Great Yorkshire Fringe New Comedian of the Year competition in 2017 - a year which also saw him placing highly in the hugely competitive English Comedian of the Year competition, and being a finalist in the North East New Act of the Year competition.

“Delightfully blunt and immensely endearing” - BBC

“...he has long career ahead of him” - Broadway Baby



Catherine Young

Catherine Young

Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year 2019

Winner of the Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year 2019, Catherine is quickly making a name for herself as one of the most exciting new acts to come out of the North-East in recent years.

Catherine occasionally absconds from Middlesbrough and the general misery of life, by running round the UK comedy circuit looking for anyone who will listen to her.

From North East and Irish decent, Catherine loves drinking, dancing and telling lies. Her comedy is light-hearted, full of mischievous stories and a warm and friendly humour that provides a short break from the stresses that life deals to us all.



This show will also feature support from several new acts, and established acts performing new material.
