Town to laugh its socks off

A new venture is underway to bring a city-style comedy night to Bridgnorth. Laugh Your Socks Off, which has been inspired by visits to famous venues such as Birmingham’s Glee Club, is opening at Bridgnorth Leisure Centre on Saturday 13 October, with doors opening at 6.45pm.

The night will feature compere Lewis Bryan, and three comedy acts: James Dowdeswell who’s appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News, BBC TV and radio’s Will Mars and Scottish Comedian of the Year Larry Dean – there will also be a cash bar to help guests get in the mood for laughter.

The event is being launched by Beth and Simon Whitmore, who say, “We’ve both enjoyed attending comedy clubs in London and Birmingham over the years but felt that rather than people having to leave Bridgnorth to enjoy these evenings, it’d be great if we could have them at the heart of our local community!”
