Comedy club is back

An ever-popular comedy club in Skegness is set to return with its first event of the new year this week.

The Comedy Tea House in the Embassy Theatre is a popular fixture in the monthly calendar.

And after taking a break over the quiet months of January and February it is back with four more acts this Friday, March 8 at 8pm.

“MC for the evening, Bill Woolland, is a naturally funny man who’s relaxed, warm, friendly style is complimented by excellent fresh and highly original material making his comedy accessible to all audiences,” said a spokesperson.

“He has plenty of experiences to draw from creating fabulous tales mined from his varied and colourful life.

“Opener Barry Dodds has been described by comedian Jasper Carrot as “very impressive”, and as “one of comedy’s original thinkers” -by Dominic Holland

“After middle Act Chris Washington, the headline for the night will be Phil Butler.

“As soon as Phil joined the UK comedy circuit, he found himself closing the show at all the major comedy clubs such as Jongleurs, Highlight, The Comedy Store, The Glee Club, Bearcat, Baby Blue, Hyena Comedy Cafe and Last Laugh to name but a few.

“Phil has also had the great honour of performing for our British troops in Iraq, Kosovo, Bosnia, Croatia and several times in Afghanistan.

“Phil was amongst the first comedians to perform to the troops on the front line, and even received a medal for his time there,” they added.

Tickets for the comedy club are £11. The night is for over 18s only.
