Funhouse Comedy Club brings two top comedy nights to the area this month, one at Stamford AFC and the other at The Grainstore Brewery in Oakham.

Tonight, the intelligent, controversially witty, hip and silly Markus Birdman will headline the comedy event taking place in Stamford at The Borderville Sports Centre.

Regarded by many in the know as one of the best circuit acts in the country, Markus has toured internationally and had highly acclaimed shows at the Edinburgh Festival.

Supporting will be the hilarious Rich Wilson and the vivacious, naturally funny Lou Conran. The amiable and animated Spiky Mike will be compere for the night.

Doors for tonight’s event open at 7pm, for the show at 8.15pm. Information and tickets at
