GARETH Richards, who has appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC2), will headline the Lyme Regis Comedy Club on Friday.

Gareth has also performed live on Radio 1 and co-hosted Frank Skinner’s Sony award-winning Absolute Radio show for two years and supported Frank on his 2014 tour.

His hilarious stand-up, silly jokes and gorgeously low-key comedy songs have made him an instant favourite on the comedy circuit.

Tom Glover is the resident compere with Richard James and Mark Felgate also on the bill.

Tickets are available in person from Lyme Regis and Bridport Tourist Information centres and over the phone on 01297 442138.
