The critically-acclaimed Sitting Room Comedy Club returns to the St George Hotel in Harrogate next Wednesday, December 10 with a festive extravaganza - a triple headline Christmas special.

Next week’s show will see TV and radio regular, Jo Caulfield , joined by Stuart Goldsmith and American legend, Brad Tassell plus one of Sitting Room’s favourite compères, Phil Ellis.

Promoter and Harrogate Advertiser columnist Tom Taylor said: “We’re lucky enough to deliver great shows all year round but our Christmas special is always a corker with three top quality headline comedians all on the same line-up. And this year I think we might have outdone ourselves again!”

Closing the night is Jo Caulfield, best known for her legendary one-woman shows and recently nominated as “the best female Stand-Up in the country” by Chortle.

She’s a regular guest on both Mock the Week and Have I Got News For You and has also appeared on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow.

Jo wrote and starred in three series of her own critically acclaimed Radio 4 comedy show, It’s That Jo Caulfield Again, and her quick wit has led to her being in demand as a guest on a huge variety of radio shows including The News Quiz, Armando Iannucci’s Charm Offensive, The Now Show and The Unbelievable Truth with David Mitchell.

Taking the opening spot, former street performer Stuart Goldsmith is both a New Zealand Comedy Award and Malcolm Hardee Award winner and has also been nominated for a Chortle Internet Award. In 2011 he took part in Show Me The Funny, hosted by Jason Manford, making it to the penultimate round of the competition.

One of America’s most popular comedians, Brad Tassell has been a comedian, author, speaker and educator for over 25 years.

His hilarious and smart comedy has seen him become a legendary figure within American comedy.

He is a regular on PBS’s The Friday Zone and has also appeared with Jay Leno, Tim Allen, Jeff Foxworthy and on Nightshift with Craig Ferguson.

Popular host, Phil Ellis, takes a break from his month long residency performing his Edinburgh Comedy Award winning show at London’s Soho Theatre to return to Harrogate.
