Video: Boothby Graffoe, Patrick Monahan and Monkey Poet bringing laughs to Barton's Ropery Hall
A TRIO of comedians will give you the giggles three times as much at the Ropery Hall in March.
It could easily be renamed comedy month at the Barton arts venue, as three highly sought-after comics take to the stage within eight days of one another.
Kicking off the trio is Boothby Graffoe who makes another return visit with his latest brand new tour, No Mad.
The musical comedian lists Omid Djalili and Stewert Lee among his high-profile fans.
He is described by Lee as a “a multi-talented, darkly hilarious British eccentric” who can “twist your funny bone one minute, and break your heart the next”.
And you can see him in action on Saturday, March 9. Tickets cost £12 in advance or £14 on the door.
On Friday, March 15, another favourite returns to Ropery Hall. Patrick Monahan is bringing his brilliant stand-up back to Barton.
“I think he is the only comedian we have had at Ropery Hall that has made grown men want to get up on stage and dance,” said Liz Bennet, from the venue.
Patrick is back with a brand new show – Shooting From The Lip! – which he is touring the UK with following a sell-out run at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival, so come along and enjoy an hour of brilliant stand-up from the loveable Teessider.
Tickets for his show cost £14 in advance or £16 on the door.
The final comedian is Manchester-based multi-award-winning Monkey Poet, who brings his new show straight from the Edinburgh Festival to Ropery Hall on Saturday, March 16.
Murder Mystery goes on a journey through poetry, death, suspense and comedy, as Monkey Poet shifts characters from Shakespeare to Homer, and tries to solve a murder while wooing Sylvia Plath.
Tickets to see Monkey Poet’s show cost £8 in advance or £10 on the door.
