Funny Way To Be Comedy Club‘s new season gets underway with three of the UK’s most exciting female comics – and they all hail from the North of England.

The 2015 programme, based at The Witham in Barnard Castle, kicks off on Saturday 10 January, with a headline appearance from Lucy Beaumont.

Hull hero Beaumont has a clutch of awards to her name. She’s a 2014 Fosters Best Newcomer nominee and was the winner of the BBC New Comedy Award in 2012.

Beaumont has made appearances on TV in BBC Three’s Live At The Electric, and has recently been commissioned to produce her own show for BBC Radio 4, To Hull and Back.

She’s joined by Lancashire comedian Katie Mulgrew and Manchester stand-up Hayley Ellis.

Peter Dixon, of Funny Way To Be Comedy Club, announced the show, saying: “A lot has been talked about this last year about the hidden talents amongst many female comedians in the UK.

“In this show we set out to present an evening that brought together three of the brightest up and coming female comics in the UK today. All three will be presenting highlights from their 2014 sell-out Edinburgh Fringe shows.”

Tickets for all shows are on sale now from
