A COMEDIAN famed for his sharp, insightful material and his distinctive performances headlines Teignmouth Comedy Club’s gig later this week (Friday)at Pavilions Teignmouth.

Stephen Carlin is regular performer in UK and international comedy clubs and he has had a number of successful solo stand up shows at the Edinburgh Festival.

He has also supported Stewart Lee, Stephen Merchant and Tom Stade on their national tours.

Also on the laughter bill are Philip Simon and Chris Chopping. Philip is one of the most sought after comperes and opening/closing acts working on the UK comedy circuit today, while the dry outlook and hilarious punchlines from Chris have established him as a fixture of professional comedy nights across Wales and beyond.

Keeping things under control will be resident MC Tom Glover.

The gig starts at 8pm and tickets are £14.50 on the door or £12.50 in advance from www.pavilionsteignmouth.org.uk.
