This month’s Red Card Comedy Club line-up at Diss Corn Hall on Friday, May 25, at 8.15pm includes John Ryan.

He will put an amusing spin on any subject matter going and has a reputation for thinking on his feet and cleverly adapting his show to any audience.

The next act to tickle your funny bones is Matt Richardson, a new talent who is flying up the comedy ladder with his energetic and fast-paced style.

Compere for the evening is Tim FitzHigham, who is described as “one of the most animated and eccentric comedians in the Fringe” with an abundance of four and five stars at the 2011 Edinburgh Festival.

The bar will be available 45 minutes beforehand as well as cake – fast becoming a firm favourite with the comedians who perform there.

Tickets: advance £9/door £10 (minimum age 18). Box Office www.disscornhall.co.uk, 01379 652241 or visit 11am-4pm, Monday-Saturday.
