Jack Carroll said: “I am honoured to be back performing as part of The Elland Round Table annual fundraiser and for such a wonderful cause.

"Being from around West Yorkshire, I know what great work Andy’s Man Club do for men. I also know most if not all of the line up and live in the next town to Jon Richardson so looking forward to a great night full of laughter.”

Jack has been very active in acting, writing and stand up comedy ever since his appearance on Britain’s Got Talent in 2013, fine-tuning his comedic skills and not only has he maintained and improved his hilarity but he has grown in maturity, opening himself up to a far wider audience.

His inimitable style of comedy demands the attention of the audience as his subject is often misunderstood in the wider world, or even avoided in fear of offending. Jack hits the subject of disability head-on in a wonderfully warm, friendly but also cutting humour, which is absorbed and appreciated by his audience to resounding laughter and applause.

The One Ell of A Laugh Comedy Night will take place on Saturday March 26, from 6.30pm to 11.30pm.
