YOU AWAKE TO FIND YOURSELF IN A DARK ROOM! You, the audience, are trapped in an interactive, retro gaming nightmare; choose an option, find the way out, and escape The Dark Room! If you succeed, you’ll take home £1000… but if you fail YOU WILL DIE! For you are not alone in The Dark Room; the merciless overlord of improv, John Robertson, is here to guide you through an hour of expertly crafted chaos and anarchy. And in the end, eeeeeverybody plays!

A) Find the Light Switch?
B) Go North?
C) Abandon Hope?

Originally an interactive YouTube game created in 2012, the Dark Room went viral and has attracted more than 4 million views. Improv king John Robertson then transformed the game into a live show, and with no two shows ever the same, The Dark Room continues to sell out high capacity venues at Insomnia Gaming Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, EB Games Expo, PAX Australia, London Film & Comicon, MCM Comic Con and more! In September 2018, the Dark Room was adapted into an actual video game, topping the Steam charts in the first few days of release and gaining critical acclaim worldwide! ‘One of the most clever, hilarious and innovative takes on the genre I’ve ever seen’ – PC Powerplay.

Frazer Theatre Comedy Club
📅 Friday 6 December 2019
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
On Friday 6th December the final Frazer Theatre Comedy Club of 2019 tops off our best year of comedy ever, following on from a triumphant 5th birthday show last month. Not ones to rest on our laurels though, we’ve made sure that we get your festive season off to the best start possible, with another absolutely loaded line-up!

As always, tickets remain at £10 in advance and are available from the Old Chemist Shop, Market Place, Knaresborough, by calling 07835 927965 or from our online box office at www.frazertheatre.co.uk. Any remaining tickets will be available for £12 on the door.

The full line-up* includes:

Stephen Carlin
--------------------
Chosen as one of Stewart Lee’s “Ten Best Stand Up Comedians Ever”, Stephen has supported Stewart Lee, Stephen Merchant, Felix Dexter and most recently, Tom Stade on their national tours. He has acquired an ever-growing fan base and critical acclaim for his original, insightful material and accomplished delivery. This married with his exceptional turn of phrase and brilliantly opinionated broadsides make for memorable routines. All skilfully delivered in trademark deadpan Scottish brogue. His popularity is growing internationally with an international tour across South Africa and the Far East, but he still has time to make a very welcome return to the Frazer.

Micky Overman
----------------------
Originally hailing from Amsterdam and having trained in Canada gives Micky uncompromising Dutch courage combined with a Canadian sensibility and charm. She is one of the most promising and exciting acts to hit the circuit in years, and as a result she was nominated for the prestigious Chortle Best newcomer award in 2018.

A bedrock of surgically sharp writing combined with a cool and confident delivery make her an exceptional comedian. Her material moves quickly from devastating honesty, to brutal whimsy, to on-point social observations. She already has the aura of a successful comic well beyond her years.

Jack Topher
----------------
A fresh new face on the comedy circuit, Jack has already made the semi-finals of the English Comedian of the Year awards, no mean feat for an act so new! Brilliantly funny, Jack is making his debut appearance at the Frazer, but we’re sure it won’t be his last!

James Meehan
---------------------
Offbeat, aloof, yet delightfully likeable, James Meehan is a current rising star of the British comedy scene. Described as brilliantly unconventional, and refreshingly nonchalant, as a stand-up, James is carving out a niche for himself as a wonderfully offbeat presence on the circuit. Skilled as both an MC and comic in his own right, we’re enormous fans of James at the Frazer and are delighted to have him back to take on hosting duties for the night.

*Line-up subject to change
Cinderella

Cinderella
📅 Thursday 16 - Saturday 25 January 2020
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
From 16th to 25th January 2020 the Knaresborough Players will be presenting the most magical pantomime of them all!

Cinderella is as kind as she is beautiful. Sadly, her loving Mother died when she was young and for the sake of Cinderella, her Father the Baron re-married a woman with two daughters of her own. Bitterly jealous of Cinderella’s youthful grace and beauty, the two Stepsisters forced her to do all the terrible chores at Hardup Hall and tore her beautiful dresses to rags. But as vile as they were, they were nothing compared to her new Stepmother…

Nigel Morgan returns as director and, as ever, he will be making the most of a fantastic script by Ben Whalley.

Tickets are £10 (£8 for over 60s and under 16s) and are available from our online box office at www.frazertheatre.co.uk, by calling 07835 927965 (credit/debit card payment required at time of booking) and from The Old Chemist Shop, Market Place, Knaresborough (from mid November).

John-Luke Roberts: After Me Comes The Flood!
📅 Friday 21 February 2020
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
On Friday 21st February 2020, The Frazer Theatre Comedy Club welcomes the critically acclaimed idiot John-Luke Roberts who returns to the road with another ridiculously long titled show.

In a brand-new hour of extraordinary daft-hearted comedy, expect to not know why you are laughing once more… even when he gives you the punchline first. Jokes about staring into the Nietzschean void, the stupid decisions of kings and how Pinocchio can save the world all might make appearances in this hour of absolute silliness. But then again, maybe they won’t. Who knows what could happen!

★★★★★ “Freewheeling escapism…A joy” Fest Magazine
★★★★★ “A masterpiece…The show is exquisite, with every last element fine-tuned to perform its function” One4Review
★★★★.5 “A relentless tempest of insanely inspired shenanigans; a dizzying parade of mad skits and eccentric characters, all built on a nugget of peculiar innovation…Unflaggingly funny” Chortle
★★★★ “an impeccably choreographed, giddily inventive, turbo-charged hour” The Telegraph
★★★★ “a hit” The Times
★★★★ “Killer gags…glorious idiocy” The Guardian
★★★★ “Mind warping hour which follows through brilliantly on its own absurd logic…relentlessly funny” The List

Tickets are £11 and are available from our online box office at www.frazertheatre.co.uk or calling 07835 927965
Lloyd Griffith

Lloyd Griffith:Not Just A Pretty Face
📅 Friday 17 April 2020
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
On Friday 17th April 2020, The Frazer Theatre Comedy Club welcomes back stand up comedian and former Soccer AM presenter, Lloyd Griffith who sold out at the Frazer in 2019.

Lloyd is back on the road for his third UK stand up tour. It’s been a busy few years for Grimsby’s favourite (for now, anyway) comedian/choirboy. He’s recently been supporting Jack Whitehall on tour, and you may have also seen him in on 8 out of 10 cats (Channel 4), Can You Beat The Bookies? (BBC), Soccer AM (Sky One), Flinch (Netflix), Live At The Comedy Store (Comedy Central), Roast Battle (Comedy Central), Songs of Praise (BBC2) ((lol)).

‘Lloyd bounces off the audience and has everyone laughing along with him. This is an hour of uplifting stand-up that’ll have you smiling for days. A warm, relatable and hilarious show’ – The Sunday Post

‘Disarmingly good’ – Dominic Maxwell, The Times

‘Lloyd Griffith has to be my favourite find from this show. It’s not often you get a comic and a choirboy rolled into one, and he’s seriously talented in both areas’ – Leicester Mercury

‘What is evident from the outset is that Griffith is both bursting with talent. He is a funny, charming, self-effacing comic who very obviously gains great joy from making people laugh. It is evident in the way he feeds off the audience’. – joe.co.uk

Tickets are £14 (£12 over 60, under 16) plus £1 per ticket booking fee and are available from our online box office at www.frazertheatre.co.uk or by calling 07835 927965.

Doors open at 7:30pm and show starts at 8pm.

Whilst we have not been advised of a lower age limit parental discretion is advised for those under 14.
