COMEDIANS Michael Redmond and Lee Kyle will be laughing their way into 2013 in Huddersfield.
The pair will head the billing as the monthly Cellar Comedy returns to the Lawrence Batley Theatre on January 10.
The Thursday night comedy sessions in the Syngenta Cellar Theatre will start at 8pm.
Michael Redmond is instantly recognisable for his memorable role as Father Stone in the Channel 4 series, Father Ted, in which he hardly spoke.
In this show, however, he aims to speak... about spare ribs, the birth of his moustache, the possible joys of senility and much more.
Michael has been on the comedy circuit since 1987 and in that time has performed a number of one-man shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, including Eamon and Older Brother of Jesus, which was later developed as a series for Radio 4.
Over his long career Michael has appeared on a number of stand-up TV shows, including BBC2's Comedy Nation, Friday Night Live, BBC One's The Stand Up Show and Clive Anderson Talks Back.
For nine years, Lee Kyle was a professional wrestler.
While this was - in his words - a waste of time, it did allow him the opportunity “to see Christian Slater impress two girls by putting on sunglasses in an elaborate way.”
Since taking up stand-up in November 2009, he has surprised himself by being not that bad at it, having recently been confirmed for The Stand and Big Owl and finishing runner-up in Laughing Penguins New Act Competition 2010.
His surreal routine based on the flags of the world’s countries has helped make him one of the most in-demand comics on the circuit.
