Following our triumphant return in September and October, we’re pleased to announce our next show.
We are back again at the newly refurbished Back Room in Cottingham, with yet another fantastic headliner in Steve Harris.
“he made me howl with laughter” Billy Connolly
Whatever age or walk of life you’re from Steve has something for you, guaranteed to have you breathless with laughter, a master of the obvious and a Ninja of the not so obvious, you’ll be hit so hard by a punch line you won’t know where it’s come from.
His most obvious asset is his ability to get any audience on his side. A well-crafted act and a will and confidence to survive outside of it is what sets Steve aside from many of his peers. With most comedians you might get laughs with Steve you get a guarantee.
Steve first leapt on stage back in August 1998 and within 3 months had won himself the coveted North West comedian of the year award after just 5 gigs.
A finalist of the BBC new comedy awards and Channel 4’s “So You Think You’re Funny” in the same year. Steve went on to headline all of the top comedy clubs in the UK including venues as far flung as Hong Kong and Australia.
With his ever-expanding reputation the demand for Steve has come from all different types of media outlets including Radio and Television. With support slots with the likes of Johnny Vegas, Peter Kay and Lee Evans, Steve comes highly recommended from the heavy weights of comedy themselves.

Running since 2016, Cottingham Comedy Club, the village’s best* comedy venue, provides an unique comedy experience in many ways. This intimate club gets you up close and personal with the acts, many of whom are breaking through into TV, or are established acts from the UK and international comedy circuit. We are a welcoming venue and we have a dedicated room for the comedy, with regular breaks between the acts for you to lubricate your throats with laughter juice. With four acts and a compere it’s great value for money at less than £2 per comedian. We think it’s the most fun you can have with friends on a midweek night out.
We aim to run this as a regular night again, on the second Thursday of every month, as we were pre-pandemic (except occasionally when we can’t be arsed).
