Top comic tal­ent line-up Bodes well

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

The start of the New Year also marks a new be­gin­ning for a com­edy club.

The Lon­es­tar Com­edy Club, which started life in Folke­stone, will bring some of the finest tal­ent on the standup cir­cuit to the new Bodes bar and cafe in Ash­ford.

The first show, on Wed­nes­day, Jan­uary 22, will see two top acts on stage.

Sup­port act Mark Sim­mons is an emerg­ing new tal­ent on the com­edy scene, who hails from Sellindge, and has per­formed at the Ed­in­burgh fringe fes­ti­val.

Head­line act Joe Rown­tree is a stand-up co­me­dian, ac­tor, writer and pre­sen­ter, whose tele­vi­sion ca­reer started back in 2001 writ­ing put-downs for Anne Robin­son on The Weak­est Link.

He has since ap­peared on all six se­ries of the award-win­ning hit Sky 1 show Brainiac: Sci­ence Abuse, cul­mi­nat­ing in two UK tours of Brainiac Live and an ap­pear­ance at the Hammersmith Apollo.
