Graduates of Tringe’s annual ‘try your hand at stand-up’ course are among those involved in the first ever comedy variety night staged by the Limelight Theatre just down the road in Aylesbury next weekend.

The Saturday, February 16, show aims to include a bit of everything – straight stand-up, character acts, and a smattering of music – on a bill that offers no fewer than nine acts aiming to get you laughing.

And also lending her vocal talents to the evening is well-known BBC announcing voice, the memorably-named Fenella Fudge.

Headlining are Mary Bourke and Rob Coleman, while support slots are assigned to, among others, Tammy Stone, Harriet Kemsley, Jen Cockburn, Fred Ferenczi and Lucy Fingle.

You get all that for a tenner, or £8 concessions – call 01296 431 272 or book online via

> While we’re on the subject of comedy, don’t forget that a new season of laughs at Hemel Hemsptead’s Old Town Hall kicks off tomorrow night with Rob Newman’s Theory Of Evolution.

It’s a work in progress from the cult comedian and a rare chance to see one of the most idiosyncratic talents on the circuit in action. Don’t go expecting many belly-laughs, but you’re sure to leave with something to think about.

The laughs continue on Saturday night with a set from Alan Francis, the Scottish writer and comedian who may not be one of the biggest names around but can be relied on for a serious session of mordant mirth.

Call the box office on 01442 228091 to check if there are still tickets on offer for either gig.
