THE EMBASSY Theatre in Skegness is set to host its latest laughter-filled Comedy Club night tomorrow (Thursday).

This time round the quartet of merry-makers will include Paul McCaffrey, Adhan Admed, headline act James Sherwood and MC Jim Smallman.

“Now established as a regular event in our Comedy Calendar, The Embassy Theatre, in association with ‘The Comedy Tea House’ is delighted to present it’s Comedy Club night,” said a spokesperson.

“Leicester lad Jim Smallman is guaranteed to linger in the memory of those who see him perform, as much for his dazzling array of tattoos as for his undoubted skills as a compere.

“Seven years on the circuit and weekends of controlling crowds at the grittiest of comedy clubs up and down the country have honed Jim into the consummate host.

“Opener Paul McCaffrey is another comic earmarked for bigger things. He has been a consistently strong performer on the circuit for the last couple of years, following his being crowned New Act of the Year at Latitude Festival in 2009.

“According to the Evening Standard, “he has charm, charisma and success writen all over him.

“The middle spot for rising stars is occupied this month by Essex born Coventry resident Adnan Ahmed, who addresses big topics and cuts them down to size with a razor sharp delivery.

“Headliner James Sherwood made his name in topical comedy, writing one-liners for commercial radio stations.

“During the 2005 general election campaign, his political material appeared on BBC Radio 1, 2 and 4. He has also written for Private Eye and is a frequent studio pundit on the Sky News Paper Review.

“He is also a musician, mainly a classical singer, but also a pianist, composer and arranger.

“His vocal arrangement of the University Challenge theme tune featured in a BBC2 documentary about the TV quiz,” they added.

The Embassy Comedy Club will take place at 8pm on May 17.
