Last Laugh Comedy Club presents top comedians to Barnsley audiences

The Civic is delighted to announce 3 top comedy acts appearing at Toby Foster’s Comedy Club this month.

One of the longest running comedy clubs in Yorkshire, you can guarantee you’ll be splitting your sides with the best that comedy has to offer. This September Toby has handpicked three top acts on the comedy scene for your amusement.

That joker, Toby is off at a charity do, so this month’s club will be hosted by the fantastic Chris Brooker. A gifted performer, and dubbed comedy’s ginger Viking, he really is a larger than life character. Chris Brooker has taken his unique mix of comedy and improvisation to stages all over the world. After a decade on the UK comedy circuit, Chris has forged a fine reputation for himself as a stand-up comedian and compère. 

The first of the three acts he will introduce this month is Christian Reilly a musical comedian. What Christian does is pretty flipping funny. It’s kind of like stand-up that goes musical. At the age of 15, Christian Reilly joined a band to get laid. The Salvation Army had different ideas.

Christian’s career has taken him around the world three times. On his way, he received accolades at international festivals and numerous network TV credits in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Britain. Christian’s comic songs, improvisations, sharp wit and youthful energy have delighted audiences wherever he performs.

“Bill Bailey watch out, there’s a new kid on the block!”

Next up is Harry Stachini. Harry started performing comedy after attending a Hot Water Comedy course at the age of 18 in 2013 and since then has won or been a finalist in various new act competitions and gong shows. Harry is beginning to establish himself as a strong new act on the comedy circuit with his easy-going style and a likeable character that just adds to the brilliance of the stories he tells. He welcomes the audience into his own world of brilliant stories and the unexpected one-liners that leave them in stitches.

Last but by no means least we have Steve Shanyaski. Steve has performed his comedy throughout the world: to an audience as diverse as bikers in a field, to royalty in a theatre, and never ceases to go down a storm. He has rapidly become a top choice for all of the major comedy venues & promoters, including the Comedy Store, CSE, Glee Club, and Jongleurs. His whirlwind performances and thrilling routines have constantly proven a hit with even the quietest crowds... The key to his act being his energy and silliness.
