Top names set to make you laugh

By Ian Dipple 16/02 Updated: 16/02 17:04

SOME of the finest comedy acts on the circuit will be bringing laughs aplenty to Redditch's Palace Theatre next week.

The Laughterhouse Comedy Show takes place on Thursday, February 23 at 8pm and features one of the finest MCs in the business in Chris Cairns, but a triple bill of funnymen in Tom Stade, Paul Tonkinson and Andrew Lawrence.

Tom is a stand-up comedian from the wilds of suburban Canada. With his magnetic stage presence he is loved by audiences and his material springs out of life spent in British Columbia's backwoods.

Andrew has gained international recognition for his live performances as he has played top comedy festivals to mass critical acclaim, including the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and at the 2009 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. He has performed five consecutive all-new solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival - two of which were nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Awards - where he consistently plays to sell out audiences and receives rave reviews. In the autumn of 2010 Andrew appeared on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow as well as Dave’s One Night Stand.

Paul made his name as host of The Sunday Show, and took an even bigger step into the limelight when he replaced Johnny Vaughan briefly on The Big Breakfast. Still relatively fresh-faced, Paul has actually been at the game quite a long time. In 1992 he was winner of the Time Out New Act of the Year Award and then completed the comedy double when he won Time Out Stand Up Comic of the Year in 1997. On stage, Paul leads his audience on a guided tour through the differences in male and

female logic and can take the mickey out of almost every region in Britain and further afield.

Tickets cost £10 or £8 concessions and are available from the box office on 01527 65203. Please note the show is for adults only.
