AN award-winning comedy sketch trio will hope to have the audience in stitches at a St Albans venue next week with their quick-fire gags.

Pappy’s are headlining Funny First Mondays at St Albans Town Hall on Monday.

The English sketch team consists of comedians Ben Clark, Matthew Crosby and Tom Parry.

Pappy’s started life as Pappy’s Fun Club but shortened their name after winning the Chortle Best Newcomer award in 2007.

The trio came to nationwide attention the following year when they were nominated for the if.comedy (formally the Perrier) Award.

They have since filmed a half-hour Comedy Lab special for Channel 4 and are regular contributors to BBC Switch with Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1.

The threesome have also toured the UK and Australia, wowing audiences with their sketches that are a mixture of downright silliness and clever wordplay.

Joining Pappy’s in St Albans is stand-up comedian and actor Joel Dommett.

Joel first started performing stand-up in Los Angeles while filming in the States and has been a regular on the UK circuit since returning to these shores.

He has appeared on TV as Joel in E4’s Skins and ITV’s Teenage Kicks as well as presenting BBC2’s Popatron.

Also on a strong bill are Henry Ginsberg, popular circuit stand-up Catie Wilkins and and guest MC Mike Belgrave.

Tickets cost £8 and are available in advance on 01525 630153 or online from the Funny First Mondays website.

They can also be bought on the night of the show.

Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm.
