ANOTHER pair of Edinburgh Fringe-bound comedians are set to perform in Otley this summer.

As recently announced, Otley Courthouse is hosting a number of double bill shows in July featuring artists who are preparing to perform at the prestigious event in the Scottish capital in August.

Appearances by Matt Forde and Hayley Ellis - on Friday, July 5 - and by Ahir Shah and Steff Todd, who take the stage on Friday, July 12 have already been confirmed.

Now the venue has announced that it will be staging a third ‘comedy Friday’ too - this time featuring Eleanor Tiernan and Susan Riddell.

The comics, each delivering their own show on the night, will appear on Friday, July 19 from 8pm.

A Courthouse spokeswoman said: “We are proud to announce our third comedy Friday in July as two more up-and-coming comedians prepare for a month long run at the world’s biggest performing arts festival, the Edinburgh Fringe.

“See two full length comedy shows for just £7 as a little slice of the greatest festival on earth comes to Otley!

Almost every major comedy act of the last 25 years has made their name in Edinburgh.

“You could be watching the next big thing.”

Eleanor Tiernan is an Irish stand-up who has performed at venues across Ireland and the UK.

She also contributes as a columnist to magazines and websites, including the Times Online, and appeared on Comedy Central’s Alternative Comedy Experience.

Those coming to her Otley show are being promised ‘a dose of her trademark acerbic wit and chronic overthinking in an exploration of what, if any, satisfaction can be found and whether she’s willing to endure the requisite amount of discomfort to get it’.

After winning a place in BBC Writers Room’s Fast and Funny, Susan Riddell went on to write, create and star in several online comedy sketches for BBC Short Stuff which have garnered nearly three million views and counting.

Susan recently performed stand-up at the Edinburgh Fringe in both CKP’s Lunchtime Special and the BBC Presents Comedy Tent.

She also has writing and and acting credits for the spoof cop TV show Scot Squad.

Susan is currently working on a sitcom pilot with the BBC and is a regular on the topical BBC radio panel show, Breaking the News.
