Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
On Wednesday 26th June Frazer Theatre Comedy Club presents a double bill of comedians with work in progress shows as they prepare for the Edinburgh Festival.

He’s regularly really funny on Frank Skinner’s radio show, and Just A Minute, and is sometimes on TV shows and panel games including Room 101, Mock the Week and Have I Got News for You. “Rarely have such random musings been elevated to this level of hilarious artistry” (The Scotsman).

From the maker of sell-out Fringe hit The Charlie Montague Mysteries, tour support for Ed Sheeran’s tour support, Tom Taylor stars in his debut stand-up show. As heard on BBC Radio 4.

The Knaresborough Players

Murdered To Death
📅 Wednesday 10 - Saturday 13 July 2019
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
The Knaresborough Players’ summer production of Peter Gordon’s “Murdered To Death” runs from runs from Wednesday 10th to Saturday 13th July 2019 with performances at 7.30pm each evening.

“Murdered To Death” is a delightful spoof of an Agatha Christie-type whodunit, full of terrible puns and amusing malapropism, a little mystery and a touch of mayhem.

With an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight – Bunting the butler; an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip; a shady French art dealer and his moll; the bumbling police inspector and a well-meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder wherever she goes – they’re all here, and caught up in the side-splitting antics which follow the mysterious death of the house’s owner.

It soon becomes clear that the murderer isn’t finished yet, but will they be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will the audience die laughing first?

Tickets are £10 (£8 concessions) and are available now from our online box office at www.frazertheatre.co.uk , or by calling 07835 927965. They will also be available to buy in person from The Old Chemist Shop, Market Place, Knaresborough from 8th June.

Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 7.30pm.


Harriet Dyer And Lou Conran.. Knares Comedy Fest
📅 Friday 19 July 2019
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
The Knaresborough Comedy Festival 2019 gets underway with two firm favourites from the Frazer Theatre Comedy Club, back with their brand new shows. Harriet Dyer, one of the most beloved acts to ever grace the Frazer Theatre stage, brings an inevitable whirlwind of chaos to town with a show on her favourite subject-dinosaurs. Then Lou Conran, often seen raiding the theatre costume store, presents an hour of thoughts, sometimes random, sometimes inappropriate, but always brilliantly funny.

Harriet Dyer

The Dinosaur Show (Work in Progress)

Harriet (BBC3, BBC Live at The Fringe, BBC Radio 4 Extra, BBC Knock Knock, BBC Ouch, Absolute Radio) loves dinosaurs, you probably do too so come and dip your body in her very large catacomb of chaos. New show, whatever happens - dinosaurs and ditties are a guarantee.

“Harriet Dyer was one of the stand out superstars for me of this years Edinburgh Fringe. She’s insightful, unique, peerless, extraordinary and… well, maybe a little unhinged.” 4 Extra Stands Up, BBC Radio 4 Extra

Lou Conran

Things I Think & Probably Shouldn't Say (Work in Progress)

What it says in the title. Therefore I’m allowed to say it’s a work in progress because if you lot don’t like what I’m saying then at least I can say I was just experimenting. (Having said that I don’t do politics, I don’t do satire, I just say things that aren’t always appropriate, and apparently you’re not always allowed to do that. Until now.)

★★★★★ “A master class in long form comedy” Edinburgh Guide
★★★★ “Laugh out loud hilarious” The Scotsman
★★★★ “Earthy and potty-mouthed, warm and bawdy”

Weekend 1
Friday 19th: Harriet Dyer/Lou Conran
Saturday 20th: Rob Rouse & Helen Rutter/Boothby Graffoe

Weekend 2
Friday 26th: Tom Toal/Mark Simmonns
Saturday 27th: Maisie Adam/Alfie Moore

Rob Rouse And Boothby Graffoe..
Knaresborough Comedy Fest

📅 Saturday 20 July 2019
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
It’s a first for the Knaresborough Comedy Festival, as we present our first ever comedy play! Real-life husband and wife Rob Rouse and Helen Rutter won huge plaudits for their debut play last year and their second effort sees them discuss what happens when stand-up gets too close to home. Then, following a massively popular appearance at the Frazer Theatre Comedy Club last year, the legendary Boothby Graffoe presents a brand-new best-of show. Can a show be brand-new and best-of? Boothby intends to find out!

Rob Rouse & Helen Rutter Funny In Real Life (Work in Progress)

A stand up comedian sees his world fall apart when his wife decides he can no longer mention her onstage. Should anything be off-limits in the realm of confessional comedy? Is it OK to overshare with an audience of complete strangers? How would you feel if your life was turned into a joke?

After last year’s hugely successful run of their debut play - 'The Ladder’- real life married couple, Rob Rouse (‘Bottom’ in Upstart Crow, BBC) and Helen Rutter (Holby City, Coronation Street) return to Edinburgh with their brand new show.

"Hilarious. Unforgettable." - British Theatre Guide

Boothby Graffoe The Best of (Work in Progress)

Boothby Graffoe will be spending an hour or so singing songs he's sung before and some new ones he's written specially and songs that come into his head on the night and will probably never be sung again. And saying funny things he's said before and funny things things that he's written specially and funny things that come into his head on the night and will probably never be said again.

They call it a Work In Progress. He calls it the show he's been doing for over 30 years. He sells out gigs all over the country. See him at the theatre in Knaresborough on 20th July and find out why.

"Should have his own TV show. He writes great gags, improvises as well as anyone, plays the guitar and sings songs that are both beautiful and funny" - The Guardian

"Boothby Graffoe is a multi-talented, darkly hilarious, grade A British eccentric, who can twist your funny bone one minute, and break your heart the next. A musical comedy act who is more musical than most musicians, and funnier than most comedians." - Stewart Lee

Weekend 1
Friday 19th: Harriet Dyer/Lou Conran
Saturday 20th: Rob Rouse & Helen Rutter/Boothby Graffoe

Weekend 2
Friday 26th: Tom Toal/Mark Simmonns

Tom Toal And Mark Simmons .. Knares Comedy Fest
📅 Friday 26 July 2019
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
The second week of the Knaresborough Comedy Festival 2019 starts with one of our all-time favourite acts and another appearing for the very first time. Tom Toal’s brand new show is another hour in his trademark style – relatable, confessional, personal and always hilarious. Mark Simmons is enjoying a meteoric rise in the comedy industry and is one of the best pure joke-slingers you’ll ever see. Together it’s another night of comedy of the very highest order!

Tom Toal Mediocre Boy (Work In Progress)

One of the brains behind the After All This Time Always Podcast with his brand new show in which Tom Toal asks some tough questions of himself and his place in the comedy industry.

Sounds a bit heavy to me… he will have some jokes as well about losing your wedding ring, going on holiday to Disneyland, working in a butchery and the expectation society places on us on account of our gender.

“A delightful hour of precious personal stuff” Scotland on Sunday

“Resplendent with fine gags and a pleasing storytelling rhythm” Scotsman

“Tom Toal captivates his audience with a unique brand of narrative comedy, that is as delightful to listen to as it is superbly funny.” Punchline Recommends

Mark Simmons Work in Progress

Star of ITV1’s Out There, Mark is an exceptional one-liner comedian. It won him a place in Dave’s prestigious Best Joke of The Fringe in Edinburgh 2017 and his solo show that year was nominated Best Show by the Amused Moose Comedy Awards. Also, he has been recently supporting Seann Walsh, Rob Beckett and Rob Brydon on their national tours.

Maisie Adam And Alfie Moore .. Knares Comedy Fest
📅 Saturday 27 July 2019
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
The final night of the Knaresborough Comedy Festival 2019 brings together a sell-out smash and a local hero! Born and raised in Harrogate, Maisie Adam is one of the fastest rising stars around, having been nominated for best newcomer at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival. Former detective Alfie Moore enjoyed a sell-out crowd for his tour show at the Frazer last year and it’s no wonder, as his unique worldview always brings audiences to tears of laughter.

Maisie Adam Hang Fire (Work in Progress)

Harrogate born Maisie Adam returns with her second full length show, working out who is to blame and for what.

After winning So You Think You’re Funny in 2017, in 2018 Maisie won the Amused Moose National New Comic award in and was nominated for Best Newcomer in the Edinburgh Comedy Awards. As seen on ITV2's The Stand Up Sketch Show.

“Mightily impressive” – Chortle.co.uk

Join BBC Radio 4’s Cop-turned-comedian Alfie Moore for his latest stand-up tour show. Relive with him the thrilling ups and downs of the night a mysterious clown came to town and more than one life ended up in the balance. It was no laughing matter – but this show certainly is! Enjoy Alfie’s unique brand of police-based humour hilariously woven together with his personal insights into his life on the front-line of the police force.

It’d be a crime to miss it!
