LYME Regis Comedy Club returned to the Marine Theatre last month with a sell-out show.
It takes the format of a traditional comedy club with short sets by four performers, mixing up nationally-known comics with those who are becoming established.
The monthly event is hosted by Bridport’s Tom Glover, a popular Axminster-based comedian and former local reporter and postman.
July’s edition is headlined by Jake Lambert (pictured above), who was called an “expert, charming stand-up” by The Sunday Times.
Jake Lambert fell into a career as a stand up; after gaining a following on Twitter under the pseudonym, he decided to put down his iPhone and pick up a microphone.
It has proven to be a wise choice as he has made it to the final of the Amused Moose award, semi-finals of the BBC New Comedy Award 2015, and even won English Comedian of the Year.
He is joined by Joe Wells, a writer from the BBC’s ‘Have I Got News For You’, and Andrew White, a favourite from the Edinburgh Fringe.
Tom Glover said: “It was fantastic to return to our home at the Marine for a sell out show with old and new faces – comedy fans clearly needed a laugh after the last 18 months.
“It’s a great value event for a tenner and a chance to see upcoming talent alongside big names.”
The next Lyme Regis Comedy Club with Jake Lambert will be held at the Marine Theatre on Saturday, July 24. Tickets cost £10 in advance and are available from the website www.marinetheatre.com
