Tickets have gone on sale for a night of comedy club fun featuring a stand-up who has supported the likes of Frankie Boyle.

The next Funhouse Comedy Club night is taking place at Market Harborough Rugby Club on Friday, February 21, where there will be three comedy acts performing.

Headlining the night is Irish comedian Martin Mor who started out as a circus entertainer before deciding to turn his hand to stand-up.

The well-travelled comic has supported Frankie Boyle, Jack Dee, Lee Evans, Johnny Vegas, Steve Coogan, Patrick Kielty, Jasper Carrott and on one occasion, the singer Tina Turner.

His often firey barbs, sometimes directed at audience members, tend to be well-received from this gentle giant.

Also appearing on the bill is Eddy Brimson, who is known as “a geezer”.

Eddy has made many television appearances on shows, including soap opera EastEnders, Absolutely Fabulous, The Thin Blue Line and Casualty.

He has also featured in TV adverts for Snickers and Barcardi Breezer.

Eddy has even done an act naked and he travels all over the world to perform.

He is said to be one of the more intriguing acts on the comedy circuit.

Completing the line-up for the night is international award-winning comedian Shazia Mirza, who is also a columnist for The Guardian weekend magazine and has often appeared on TV panel programmes such as Have I Got News For You, as well as on radio.

Shazia was previously a science teacher being becoming a comedienne.

One of her former pupils was thesuccessful rapper Dizzee Rascal.

Shazia has also appeared on Last Comic Standing, Richard and Judy and, more recently, the combustible Channel Five show The Wright Stuff.

Her distinctive act combines a deadpan delivery and laconic one-liners with observations on the world.

The compere for the night will be the cheery Scott Bennett.

Tickets cost £10 in advance and are available from the website, where there is also more information about the show and the Fun House series.

Doors at the Northampton Road venue open at 7pm with acts starting from 8.30pm.

There will also be a licensed bar.

There is a further gig lined up in the rugby club’s comedy series on April 4.
