A comedy club is back with a barrel of laughs after a summer recess.

Leek Comedy Club, brought to Staffordshire Moorlands audiences by www.FunhouseComedy.co.uk, is back at Foxlowe Arts Centre in Leek tomorrow (Thursday, September 4) for a night full of laughter.

Headlining the night is Mitch Benn, known as one of the best writer/performers of comic songs in the country. He is a regular writer and performer on both radio and television including, BBC Radio 4's "Mitch Benn's Crimes Against Music" and "The Mitch Benn Music Show" on BBC Radio 7.

His songs are extremely well crafted, well performed and very funny. A self-confessed sceptic his material is clever and thought provoking. Supporting tomorrow's evening of laughter in Leek, will be comedian and television writer Caimh McDonnell. Genial white-haired Irishman Caimh (pronounced 'Queeve') has quickly established himself as one of the circuits most amiable and friendly acts. His gentle yet incisive humour makes any audience feel involved, while playing with their expectations.
