MARK Maeir headlines Saturday night's Hyena Lounge Comedy Club line-up at The Duchess, York, supported by Mick Ferry and Adam Rushton and introduced by master of ceremonies Tony Jameson.

Award-winning writer and stand-up Maier has worked the comedy clubs of Germany, Holland, Ireland, Hong Kong, the Bahamas, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, as well as appearing at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles and Caroline’s in New York.

Among his many credits, Maier has taught and performed improvisation with Catherine Tate in London and had a string of radio series, doubling up as writer and performer.

Mick Ferry, above, winner of the inaugural Circuit Comedian Of The Year award in 2013, opens the 8pm show with his lugubrious surrealism, having performed regularly at The Comedy Store in London and Manchester, where he is a member of the topical Cutting Edge Team. Earlier he made his big-screen debut in 2009 in Ken Loach’s film Looking For Eric.

Liverpudlian Adam Rushton returns to the Hyena Lounge to take this weekend’s middle spot , mixing tales of his years in the Royal Navy with observations of everyday life. Compere Tony Jameson is fast becoming a favourite with Hyena Lounge audiences with his witty interaction and banter after relocating to York.
