Selby Town Hall hosts six top comedians across three weekends in July as they prepare for a month long run at the world's biggest performing arts festival, the Edinburgh Fringe.
Each night you get to see two full length comedy shows for just £7 as a little slice of the greatest festival on earth comes to Selby! Almost every major comedy act of the last 25 years made their name in Edinburgh - you could be watching the next big thing...
An acclaimed stand up comedian, writer and director, Garrett Millerick is an increasing force to be reckoned with on the UK circuit. In the few short years since debuting in new act competitions, he has established a reputation as one of the stand out live acts of his generation. In 2018 his breakout show Sunflower became one of the best reviewed and most talked about shows of The Edinburgh Festival. The show played to packed houses throughout the month, and an additional show at The Pleasance Cabaret Bar was added due to phenomenal demand followed by a run in London’s Soho Theatre. Already a fixture at the country’s most respected comedy clubs, in 2017 Garrett became one of a new generation of comedians to be making regular weekend appearances at the world-famous Comedy Store. As well as being in demand on both the alternative and club circuits in the UK, Garrett’s stand up has seen him tour Europe, Australia and Asia. His debut radio sitcom Do Gooders was recently recorded for Amazon’s Audible platform with an all-star cast featuring Jack Dee and Meera Syal and produced by Hat Trick Productions. It is currently being developed for television.
