The line-up for the next Comedy Club night on Sunday, June 14 has been described as ‘typically Hebden!’

Taking to the stage at the Old Gate pub, Hebden Bridge, will be Perrier Award-nominated John Gordillo, former circus acrobat Will Franken, Geordie comic George Zach. Todmorden comedian Martin Mor will be compere for the night and will be trying to keep order.

Based in London, John Gordillo has directed shows by Eddie Izzard and Reginald D Hunter.

He also made it to the final shortlist of comedians being considered by the BBC as a full-time replacement for Angus Deayton as host of ‘Have I Got News for You?’ - though he had never guest-hosted the show.

Comedy promoter Rob Riley said: “John’s brand of intelligent comedy never lets the clever get in the way of the funny - not only will he make the audience laugh until it hurts but he will also leave them with plenty of things to think about.”

The monthly comedy night starts at 8pm. For tickets tel 07874 152338 or visit
