The Hanky Panky Comedy Club - Middlesbrough on Friday 25th February 2022
Join Ted Hanky & Friends at The Hanky Panky Comedy Club at Bier & Beer bar in Middlesbrough every month for a proper mint night of stand up comedy.
Each month Ted introduces 3 or 4 quality stand up comedians - including a top headliner!
Neil started his comedy career in Scotland 16 years ago, where he remains a regular act at the highly-regarded Stand Comedy Clubs in Glasgow & Edinburgh.
He now performs in locations across the length and breadth of the British Isles, attracting widespread concern, and has also entertained international audiences in places as far-flung as Tenerife, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Romania, the Czech Republic, the two Channel Islands you can actually get to, Florida, California and Kent.
Neil reached the Scottish regional final of the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2001, so technically that means he's been on the telly (for the 7 people who had BBC CHOICE at the time).
In 2006 Neil came third in the Scottish Comedian of the Year competition and performed his first, sold-out, one-man show, 'Posh Glaswegian', at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, followed by his first full run in the Gilded Balloon at the Edinburgh Fringe; and his first solo show outside Scotland, at the Manchester Comedy Festival.
He moved to London to become a full-time comic in 2009, and March 2010 saw his fourth solo show at the Magners' Glasgow Comedy Festival, entitled 'Neil McFarlane is Still in Search of a USP'. In 2013 he performed 'Neil McFarlane's First Period' at the Bath Comedy Festival and the Brighton Fringe.
In 2012 Neil was a finalist in Jongleurs Comic Idol competition. He also wrote and performed his solo show "Sightseeing With A Hangover" at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2016
Allow him gently to divert you from the horrific truth of your own existential plight and occasionally use the word 'seepage'.

Opening the Show
Winner of Sketch off 2018, Lois Mills is a one woman sketch group.
Using a mixture of puppetry, video and good old fashioned theatre, Lois will take you on a journey which will conclude with you thinking "Yep, she is a weirdo".
“She made a virtue of a the kind of behaviour that would get you sectioned without stage lights and a microphone" -Julia Chamberlain for Chortle
“The decidedly strange Lois Mills, who started off weird and… got weirder" -Bruce Dessau for Beyond The Joke
Plus two more acts TBA in the middle section!
