Funhouse Comedy Club returns to the Atrium on Thursday with another line-up of talented entertainers.

Headlining the night is the engaging Andrew Bird. Watching The Young Ones with his brothers as an eight-year-old, at 2am on Comic Relief, he realised then that he wanted to be funny. With his personal appeal and well crafted, funny anecdotes he captivates his audiences and has supported Rhod Gilbert and Lee Hurst as well as performing internationally.

Supporting Bird is the talented actor, writer, comedian and self-confessed clown Dave Thompson. Known for playing ‘Tinky Winky’ in the Teletubbies as well as appearing on and writing for Harry Hill, he feels his main achievement is the novel he has written. His one-liners and bizarre take on the world are laugh-out-loud material, Bird has built up a big following and he has become a cult with students.

Completing the line-up, having recently returned from the Edinburgh Festival, will be Scottish actor, voice-over artist and stand-up Neil McFarlane, with his middle-class humorous musings, and the charming, sharp witted Mark Smith who has appeared on ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’, supported Russell Kane on tour and in August also performed his debut solo show at the Edinburgh Festival.

Compere for the night is the lively and jovial Spiky Mike. Tickets are £8 in advance. Doors open at 8pm for an 8.30pm start. More detail and bookings at www.funhousecomedy.co.uk
