MATT RICHARDSON will headline a night of stand-up comedy planned for next spring in Glusburn.

The village’s Community and Arts Centre will also welcome Katie Mulgrew and Kerian Boyd to the laughter-packed line-up on May 18.

Multi-award-winning comedian Matt Richardson is described as one of the most exciting names in stand-up.

A spokesman said: “He’s hitting the circuit with some fast-paced, high-octane stand-up, delivered with his usual inimitable style.”

The audience is told to expect what the Guardian called high-wattage charisma and the Daily Mirror hailed as “hilarious and charming”.

Richardson is a host of Virgin Radio’s drive-time show, The Xtra Factor, Just Tattoo of Us, The Aftermath, and Celebrity Haunted Hotel Live.

Katie Mulgrew is a stand-up comedian, writer and soup enthusiast, who “travels all over the country to amuse mainly strangers in comedy clubs but also occasionally strangers in petrol stations”.

Katie has written and performed two Edinburgh Festival solo stand-up comedy shows, one about her dad and one about Disney.

Kerian Boyd was a finalist in So You Think You’re Funny? (2009) and Amused Moose Laugh-Off (2010), and was part of Edinburgh Fringe favourites WitTank.

The spokesman said: “Kieran has been performing his inventive, high-energy stand up across the country for five years.

“He gigs for Avalon, CKP, The Stand, Komedia, and Highlight amongst others as well as numerous shows at the Edinburgh Festival.”
