AN award-winning comedian from North Yorkshire is rounding off his debut tour with a gig in his home town.

Stand up comedian and writer Matt Hoss, from Richmond, is finishing his 13-date debut tour at Richmond Cricket Club, in the town he grow up in.

The 26-year-old has embarked on his first tour after a successful run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with a set called Here Comes Your Man.

Here Comes Your Man tackles male mental health, encouraging men to be more open about their feelings, while simultaneously acting as an outlet for Mr Hoss’ as he looks at why a number of male comedians discuss heartbreak in their sets.

After a year of “major heartbreak and disastrous dates”, the stand up artists felt performing was the only way to talk through his pain.

Mr Hoss said: “Men should be more open about their feelings and their friends should engage with those feelings, instead of dismissing it or laughing it off.”

Fitting in this ethos, all tour venues are “intimate”, with dates across the UK.

The entrepreneur, who also runs a chain of vegan comedy clubs, has recently started radio DJing on Radio Stockton and Darlo Radio.

The comedian previously won the Eric Barker Award in 2015 and writes and performs for BBC Newcastle’s Grin Up North, whilst also writing for the British Stand-Up Comedy Archive.

Tickets for the March 20 event, which starts at 7.30pm, are £10 in advance or £15 on the door.
