Fundraiser for Bloodrun EVS


Copy details

The Laughing Pug Comedy Club is please to host this fundraising comedy night for Bloodrun EVS 

Fran Garrity

Undeniably one of the North East’s finest comedic exports of recent years, Teesside-based comic Fran Garrity kicked off his comedy career in 2015 after becoming a finalist in the City Comedian of the Year & FAF Breakthrough Act.

Often heard on the airwaves of both national and regional radio, Fran has featured on such shows as BBC Radio 4’s New Comedy Awards and BBC Radio Newcastle’s features Jesting About and Grin up North.

2017 saw Fran chosen for a support slot with Jason Manford on his Muddle Class Tour and later that year he debuted his solo show Secret Agent Fran and became a finalist in the Harrogate Comedian of the Year.

He had a sell-out run for Best In Class at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his show Faith, Hope & Garrity.

Fran Garrity has an easy and instant rapport with the audience and not only gets frequent laughs but also they are always big laughs. - BUZZ COMEDY

His self-deprecating stuff about his Teesside heritage was gritty and punchy, backed up with a keenness in observation and a good turn-of-phrase. - NEWCASTLE STAND

Host for the night is Kyle Kraze

A self described northern working class clown, and man child about town. Kyle is excitable, and aggressively energetically covering everything he can from being the shortest, albeit eldest of two brothers growing up, a first time uncle, struggling with his own wavering masculinity to being a fan of die hard... With impressions, observations, and whatever flies from of his mouth"

"Kyle has such energy and likeability. A great comic who had them in his palm....the bastard."
- Alex lowe/ Clinton Baptiste


Support comedians are local BBC New Comedy awards semi finalist Matty Oxley and the trio of North East Comics Adrian Hanlon, Helen White and Kayvan Khazaee
