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.
Steve has rapidly established himself throughout the UK as a top choice for all of the
major comedy venues & promoters, including the Comedy Store, CSE, Glee Club, and Jongleurs.
His whirlwind performances and thrilling routines have constantly proven a hit with even the
quietest crowds… The key to his act being his energy and silliness.
He has performed his comedy throughout the world: to an audience as diverse as bikers in a field, to royalty in a theatre, and never ceases to go down a storm.
Phil began performing comedy in 2006 at a local Chinese restaurant, he was asked to leave soon into the performance, but such was the reaction of the crowd – a rapturous round of applause (in hindsight, this may have been more for the management although no one can really confirm anything) – he decided to pursue a career via more conventional means. He then found a local comedy venue running beginners nights, and after his first performance, was asked to perform in the final of the new act competition, where he placed second.
He continued performing around the North of England, where he placed second in four more competitions, including the legendary Beat the Frog World Series. Given his consistency, and undeterred by his near brushes with success, he decided to carry on performing and has now established himself as a regular in many clubs around the country, and he is renowned for his ability to win over any audience.
From his carefully crafted gags, to his engaging anecdotes, his material and stage presence ensure he is a big hit wherever he’s playing, and always leaves the audience wanting more.
Anecdotal, observational and refreshingly honest in style, Gerry’s comedy is enriched by a somewhat unique perspective: Real name Gerry Kyei (pronounced “Chay”), Gerry was born in the East End, but grew up in rural Essex, as a rare black face in an almost totally white and very parochial area (a million miles away from the traditional Essex stereotype towns like Harlow, Basildon, Romford and Southend). In addition to providing some truly original insights into life in rural England, these early experiences have ensured Gerry’s comedy delights an incredible range of audiences often confounds expectations.
Gerry K was fabulous – super entertainer and a lovely guy. We’re all still talking about the evening and remembering some of his jokes – very very funny :o) star player – hope to seem him at ‘Live at the Apollo’ soooooooooooon. Cheers and thanks again
