A BARREL of laughs is promised at Malvern Theatres on February 10 with the venue's first ever comedy club night.

The line-up includes Kevin McCarthy, Gordon Southern and Noel Britten, three up and coming British comics.

Noel Britten has been described by Comedy Review magazine as "the country's finest emerging stand up talent," while Gordon Southern has worked all over the world and his stand up show has been featured on all the main television channels.

Kevin McCarthy is one of the biggest acts on the UK comedy circuit and has supported well known comedians Jo Brand and Lee Evans.

The Theatres are aiming to put on similar nights on a monthly basis and have already arranged for Roger D, Rex Boyd and Inder Manocha to perform at the next comedy club night on April 14.

Tickets are £10 or £12 (students £7) and can be booked on 01684 892277 or at www.malvern-theatres.co.uk.
