A funny musical duo and a Fighting Talk regular are due to appear in Welwyn Garden City tonight (Friday) at a monthly comedy club, with a percentage of the show’s profits going to a Hertfordshire charity.
Collywobblers Comedy Club returns to the Collingwood Suite at the Gosling Sports Park, in Stanborough Road, with a rib-tickling line-up featuring Bob Mills, Jollyboat and special guest Annabel O’Connell.
MC for the night will once again be Sion James, with a charity auction and joke competition also taking place to keep the audience entertained in a fun and friendly atmosphere. And there’s free lollipops, too!
Advanced tickets are £10 and are available online and from the Gosling Sports Park reception, with the cost rising to £15 on the door.
Bob Mills is star of In Bed with MeDinner and appears on BBC 5Live’s Fighting Talk programme and is known for his genial wit.
Award-winning comedy rock duo Jollyboat are brothers Tom and Ed.
Winners of The Musical Comedy Awards 2011, the pair are regarded as “the best pirate-themed comedy songwriting duo in Liverpool”.
Annabel O’Connell was a 2012 Craic Attack Competition finalist in Ireland – and was the third duckling from the left in the 1989 Willow Glen production of Swan Lake.
MC Sion James has been described by Time Out as “utterly charming” and a “lovable giant”.
Acts appearing are correct at the time of going to press.
A percentage of any profits from the night after costs have been covered will be donated to local charity YMCA Central Herts.
Doors open at 7.30pm and the comedy show starts at 8.30pm.
