A comedy club in Market Harborough is aiming to show people they don’t need to travel to Edinburgh to see top quality entertainment.

The beerhouse at The Forge hosts the event at St Mary Road.

The first two comedians on Thursday May 26 are Daniel Nicholas and Alex Kealy. describe Leicester based Dan’s show as a: “A madcap stand-up hour that bats around from interactive games to surreal one-liners and some longer bits.

“Brought to you by a twisted (but oblivious) child in a mid-twenties, asthmatic, white middle class body. This isn’t just another show about middle class nightmares. There’s less middle, not a lot of class, certainly plenty of nightmare.

“From the Jumper Game to the Elimination Process, there’s something here for someone. Imagine if Tim Burton made a stand-up game show and it might be like this.”

Alex has won plenty of accolades and was a finalist in So You Think You’re Funny competition. Previous finalists at the event include Reginald D Hunter and Jack Whitehall.

He also was a finalist in the Hobgoblin New Comedian Award held at De Montfort Hall in Leicester and is a finalist in the Harrogate New Comedian, Reading New Comedian and twice a finalist at The Comedy Store’s King Gong.

The comedy night runs from 9pm-11pm.

There will be festival previews and stand up shows on the last Thursday of every month in addition to open mic sessions.
