The Comedy Tea House

A NEW comedy club, featuring the cream of UK stand-up, is soon to be opening its doors in Skegness.

The Comedy Tea House, which already runs many successful night at venues across Lincolnshire, will be bringing its big name acts to the Embassy Theatre from Thursday, June 16.

Founding member Mark Webb said: “We just felt the area was crying out for something like this - a regular comedy night with top quality acts.

“The success of the Woodhall Spa, Horncastle and Boston gigs, which have been phenomenal, has convinced us the time is right to bring the same formula to Skegness, and the Embassy, is of course, the perfect venue.

“All we need now is for the Skegness public to support the first night and I’m confident it will become a fixture in people’s diaries and more importantly it will hopefully provide locals with top quality entertainment long after the holiday entertainment long after the holiday season is over and visitors have left.”

The first show next Thursday features three top acts, Steve Shanyaski, Chris Turner and headliner Martin Bigpig Mor, introduced by MC Danny McLoughlin.

All the performers are well established in the world of comedy having performed at prestigious venues to enthralled crowds up and down the country.

Headliner Martin Pigpig Mor has been described as one of the most distinctive acts on the circuit, having performed at such diverse acts as Hammersmith Apollo and an Italian prison.

He has also featured on radio and TV show and written material for his own shows as well as some of the industry’s top names.
