Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
The Frazer Theatre Comedy Club proudly brings four top-level comedians to Knaresborough for another evening of the best laughs in town. 2020 has already been an incredible year for the club and we’re keeping that rolling on Friday 3rd April. You won’t want to miss this one! 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 Any remaining tickets will be available for £12 on the door.

Doors open at 7.30pm, show starts at 8pm.

The full line-up* includes:

Stephen Royle

Steve is an actor, writer, comedian, juggler, and a “Gillard award” winning presenter on BBC Radio Lancashire. Steve’s first love, however, is Stand-Up and it is a job that has taken him all over the world: Cruises in the Med, Norwegian Fjords and the Caribbean, hotels and comedy clubs in Hong Kong, Dubai, Crete, Cyprus, Turkey and Japan. He is a regular headline act at The Comedy Store and other “alternative” venues and has several television appearances to his credit, including “Phoenix Nights”, “Max And Paddy’s Road To Nowhere” and “Peter Kay’s Britain’s Got The Pop Factor…”.

George Rigden

Nominated as ‘Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2017’, George Rigden has excelled in a host of competitions. He made his Edinburgh debut in 2015 when he performed as part of the prestigious AAA Stand Up Late showcase at the Pleasance Courtyard for a full sell-out run and had another acclaimed show “George-ous” at Pleasance Courtyard in 2018. 2019 saw him bring his brand new show “Spooning with Uri” to the Edinburgh Festival, receiving rave reviews.

He is known for his dark musical Comedy, and received considerable critical acclaim for his set at the Leicester Comedy Festival Gala Preview Show.

“Rigden is the result of a genetic mash-up between Mitch Benn and Tim Key, perhaps with a few strands of Ricky Gervais’s DNA thrown in…Very Funny Stuff.” – Steve Bennett, Chortle

Keith Platt

Keith Platt is a character that is brought to life by Howard “H” Smith, vocalist with late eighties Thrash Metal band Acid Reign. He brings over 20 years of stage craft in comedy and music to the party, and it is a party when Keith gets into full swing. Beloved by audiences up and down the country Keith Platt is the man with a plan, a Yorkshire sized plan. Each gag laden set is a lifetime of work crammed into a frenetic set that always climaxes with a song. Equally at home in front of a cultured comedy audience or a raging music festival crowd Keith’s home is the stage, his food is laughter and his drink is Theakston’s Old Peculiar.

Harriet Dyer

No stranger to the Frazer Theatre, the ever-popular Harriet returns as MC for the evening. If you seen her before, she needs no introduction and if she’s new to you, the only way to explain is to see her in person! There’s never a dull moment with Harriet around, and the laughs come fast and furious!

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’. –

Tickets are £14 (£12 over 60, under 16) plus £1 per ticket booking fee and are available from our online box office at 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.
Paul Foot...Swan Power
Saturday 24 October 2020
Frazer Theatre Off High St Knaresborough HG50EQ
On Saturday 24th October 2020, The Frazer Theatre Comedy Club is delighted to welcome Paul Foot back to Knaresborough.

The multi-award winning comedian presents his brand new show. Tired of the goose? Swan Power is here. Paul opens his beak and explores topics including Nanna on the rack, murdering Santas and interfering ambulance drivers (self-appointed busybodies!) Plus Billy Zane’s Valuable Diamond (c/o RMS Titanic). Live by the swan, fly by the swan.

Tickets are £15 (10% booking fee applies) and are available from our online box office at or by calling 07835 927965. Paul’s last two visits to the Frazer have sold out so don’t miss out and secure your tickets early!

Doors open at 7.30pm and the show starts at 8pm.
