Allington’s popular comedy night returns to the village hall on 28 March. Tickets cost £10.00 each and are now on sale. You can get them from Allington Village Stores, the Welby Arms and directly from this website - use the button or just scroll down. Doors open at 7.30pm. The show starts at 8pm and there will be a licensed bar throughout.
The event is organised by the playing field fundraisers in conjunction with Funhouse Comedy. There will be three professional comedians plus a compere. Adult themes require that admission be restricted to 16’s and over.
The compere provides the glue to hold the evening together, warming up the audience and moving the show seamlessly between acts. This time round the compere’s job is in the safe hands of Barry Dodds. Barry is ideally suited to this role. In 2017 he picked up the Best MC trophy for the third year in a row at the Midlands Comedy Awards.
Steve Royle will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the night. Steve is a comedian and media personality. His TV appearances have included Phoenix Nights and Max and Paddy. He is also a radio presenter, actor and writer and has a particular talent for juggling.
Next up is Sean Percival. Sean is a regular at all the UK’s top comedy venues, including the successful Jongleurs chain and the Comedy Store. He has appeared at Glastonbury,
Reading and Edinburgh festivals, the latter as a member of the sell out Comedy Zone show.
Our final comedian is Paul McCaffrey star of Live at the Apollo and Inpractical Jokers. Paul has recently appeared on major UK tours with two of Britain’s foremost stand ups, Sean Lock and Kevin Bridges – playing to more than half a million people in arenas and theatres to great critical acclaim.
You can order tickets here. They are also available from Allington Stores and The Welby Arms from 28 February. They cost £10 each. There is no admin fee for online purchases.
