Gilroy, described by Chris Addison as “one of the best new comedy writing talents around”, will perform a short set at The Hancock pub in Newcastle to round off the quiz that puts your comedy knowledge to the test.
He will appear as protest singer and freelance activist Jerry Bucham – complete with a back catalogue of god-awful songs.
He said: “"I am delighted to be taking part in the next Giggle Beats' comedy quiz.
“As a weekly columnist for GB this is finally my chance to step out from behind the desk and impress them live and in person. Like Jan Moir opening a Tesco Express."
Gilroy has been performing as Jerry Bucham since 2011.
Now based in Yorkshire, he originally started performing in Newcastle and established himself as a popular act on the North East circuit.
Entry is £2.
Doors open at 7.30pm, and the quiz starts at 8pm
