Nine of the finest new acts on the circuit will battle it out for £100, a bona fide trophy and a contract of paid gigs on the UK comedy circuit.

With performers ranging in experience from genuine first timers, to acts with a year on the open mic circuit, it should be a fascinating evening of up and coming stand-ups.

Ray Kane (“A slick, appealing crowd-pleaser” - is a must-see comedian who mixes guitar-based songs, engaging storytelling, brilliantly honed observational material and effortlessly entertaining visual tomfoolery to blisteringly humorous effect.

He has appeared on Granada TV’s Gagging For It and ITV’s Stand-Up Britain with his engaging ebullience, audacious ad-libbing and florid storytelling that could generate warmth in a mortuary.

Resident compere Anthony J Brown cuts a unique on-stage presence with humour blacker than a raven “that’s slammed it’s claw in a coffin lid and not the merest hint of profanity,” he says.

For all those interested in experiencing a great night’s entertainment, make your way down to Worksop Library, on Memorial Avenue, on Wednesday 10th August.

Doors open at 7pm and the show is expected to start 8pm sharp.

Tickets range from £6-£8 and can be purchased from the venue.

There is also a licensed bar on the premises.
