With a delivery that is up-beat and well honed, his easy-going style is both endearing and very funny.

Jack Carroll was taken to the nation’s hearts when he came second in Britain’s Got Talent to a performing dog.

Since then Jack has received widespread recognition for his burgeoning stand up and acting careers.

Sarah Millican’s support act Caimh McDonnell and Rob Riley complete the bill for the evening.

Then, Sunday, September 25 promises to be a rip roaring evening with a line-up of hilarious acts.

Josh Howie is the son of legendary PR guru Lynne Franks, the woman who inspired Jennifer Saunders’ character Edina in Absolutely Fabulous.

Somerset’s Chris Stokes’ calm, laid back demeanour combined with a hilarious and erudite turn of phrase has seen him become a firm audience favourite.

Equipped with superb material, and the style to match, his is an act that is both extremely funny and original.

The show also features compere Martin Mor and Marc Jennings.
