THERE’S another dose of comedy at Campus West in Welwyn Garden City on the final Friday of the month when Barnstormers return.

Now operating out of the Terrace Suite, the comedy club is back on October 28 at 8pm with another three stand-ups.

This month’s guest host Paul Ricketts presents Brendan Dempsey, Anthony King and the laconic Colin Owens.

One of a handful of acts invited to perform at the prestigious Just For Laughs in Montreal, Brendan’s festivalled Edinburgh, Melbourne, Adelaide, Kansas and Finland and even performed in China.

He also starred with Christan Slater in both record-breaking West End runs of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

Anthony King’s devilishly droll deadpan humour, masterful timing and delivery of a stream of one-liners combine to make him one of the most polished performers on the circuit.

His act is a combination of his own true-life experiences mixed in with a whole bunch of lies.

Colin Owens did his first stand-up comedy gig in May 2005 and a few months later won the hotly contested Jimmy Carr Comedy Idol Competition, winning a support slot at Bloomsbury Theatre, a part on Jimmy Carr’s DVD and a couple of TV appearances doing sketches with the comedian.

Tickets cost £12 in advance and £14 on the door.
