Penistone Paramount

The Paramount is a hidden gem, here in the middle of the Pennines. A beautiful old cimema that we turn up to every now and then, roll up the screen and put a gig on. One of our favourite places in the world, it’s got a great atmosphere, and a lovely bar to boot! These gigs always sell out, so make sure you book soon.

Call The Penistone Paramount Box Office on 01226 767532 to book tickets.

Compere, Toby Foster

Toby was your spiritual guardian through the murky depths of humour. He regularly looks after the punters at The Last Laugh, and hosts BBC Radio Sheffield’s Breakfast Show. He’s been on telly quite a bit, doing 2 episodes of The Stand Up Show, That Peter Kay Thing, Comedy Nation, The Comedy Cafe, Extras and Derrick. He’s best known from Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights.


Craig Murray

Hailing from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire (a town otherwise famous for international terrorists, fake kidnaps and ‘Britain’s Best Market’), charming northerner Craig is currently one of the hottest rising talents on the comedy circuit.

Craig cut his comedy teeth as resident compere at award-winning London club The Funny Side…of Covent Garden sharing a stage with some of the very best comedy acts in the business including Harry Hill, Stewart Lee and even Hollywood legend Robin Williams. He rapidly became a master of the compere’s art; able to turn any crowd from
a lacklustre mob into a clapping, cheering, delirious audience ready to laugh all night.

Having honed his talents as an MC introducing others, in 2008 he began bringing his impressive stage presence and flair for audience banter to his very own stand-up set. Since then, his rise through the comedy ranks has been nothing short of meteoric. Within just 1 month he had reached the final of The Other Side New Act of the Year competition and within 3, the final of the coveted Hackney Empire New Act of the Year. In the last two years he has also appeared in a comedy film alongside Adam Hills and Brendon Burns and recorded a comedy pilot for the BBC.

An instant crowd pleaser with a charismatic, mock-confrontational style.

James Alderson

James Alderson is an award-winning, record-breaking international comedian! He regularly performs stand-up for large comedy chains and independent clubs around the country and abroad, as well as a variety of universities, charities, private parties, weddings, the military, sports dinners & corporate events. The last 12 months have been massive for James….! As well as supporting Jo Brand and Eddie Izzard, he was also nominated for the third year running as “Best Comedian” by The Guide Awards. James has spent the last 12 months developing his reputation with many major clubs across the UK, gigging a number of times for The Glee Club, Jongleurs, Highlight, Buzz Comedy and many more during his 250+ shows! James has established himself as resident MC for a number of professional clubs, including the prestigious Spinnaker Tower Comedy Club and Comedy All Stars, was asked to perform at the Children In Need Gala at The King’s Theatre in November, and was the host for the 2000 seater tent for the brand new star-studded Southsea Comedy Festival! James made his first steps into TV work, starring in Vauxhall’s Euro advert, Daily Star On Sunday’s footie advert, and most signifcantly playing a major acting role in Objective Production’s new Channel 4 prime-time prank show called “Eye Spy” which aired in late 2013. Click HERE to watch him in action. He was also booked to do half hour shows during 2013 in Egypt, Spain and Crete, and was asked to return for numerous extra dates throughout 2014, as well as a first time performing in Switzerland for Nestle. James also launched the South Coast Comedian of the Year 2014 competition, and hosted the heats and final in Spring/Summer 2014 in Portsmouth, in a bid to find the brightest new comedy talent on the south coast! In the Summer of 2014, James organised a major 100 mile charity walk and cycle from BT Tower, London to Spinnaker Tower, with over a dozen other well known comedians, from TV and the UK comedy circuit, called “MIC, BIKE ‘N’ HIKE” raising nearly £10,000 in the process. James was also part of the team of professional comedians that broke the world record for the longest stand-up show across a 4 day period, performing three times during the 83 hour show! Last but not least, James regularly appears on BBC Radio Solent, Express Fm and Jack FM as a guest comedian. James has an effervescent and exuberant style, explaining why most clubs in the UK book him to open the show! He draws on his life experiences as a 30-something man to feed his routines. He’s been described by many as an ‘everyman comedian’. Women laugh at his hilarious observations and self-depricating style, and men laugh with him, feeling his pain and his frustrations….you rarely know where James will go with his comedic tales and punchlines, but he always takes the crowd with him, laughing all the way…. James also runs a major comedy club in Hampshire, seating 400, starring a full line-up of TV comedians, featuring the likes of Sean Hughes, Tony Law, Katherine Ryan, Russell Kane, Paul Chowdhry, Jarred Christmas, Hal Cruttenden, Lucy Porter, and more in recent months. James is married to Charlotte, his dream girl, who he met whilst on holiday in Corfu in 1994, when he was just 19. They tied the knot in 2001. James is now the proud father of two terrific young boys, Louis & Joe, aged 10 and 7.
