Comedy night lined up in Honiton for Thursday, February 14.

The Beehive, in Honiton, will be hosting a comedy night as an antidote for Valentine’s Day.

Winner of the prestigious Funny Women Award, Suzy Bennett is a dynamo of a comic, with a uniquely warm and chatty stage presence.

After her appearance on Comedy Idol, Suzy was asked by Jimmy Carr to support him on his ‘Gag Reflex’ tour and since then her career has gone from strength to strength.

Speaking about Suzy, Jimmy Carr said: ‘A naturally funny person. Very funny indeed.”

Supporting Suzy will be Morgan Rees, who is a rising star of the UK circuit.

This softly spoken Welsh comedian boasts a densely packed arsenal of impressive one-liners and hilarious short stories.

He has appeared on BBC Radio 4 in the prestigious finals of the BBC New Comedy Award.

He was also a runner-up in So You Think You’re Funny 2017, and a finalist in Chortle Student Comedy Award.

Christian Russell-Pollock has 23 letters and a hyphen, so is literally one of the biggest names in comedy.

Lauded as ‘a stand out stand up’ by Taking the Mic, Christian has been entertaining audiences across the country since his debut in 2016.

Since then, his friendly, affable nature combined with his carefully crafted brand of incisive jokes and witty stories has seen him become a firm crowd favourite.

Comedian Steve Bennett said of Christian: “A sharp and crafty gagsmith, with wittily obtuse takes on… an impressively wide range of topics… bringing flair and confidence to them all.”

The event, on Thursday, February 14, will be hosted by local favourite MC Tom Glover.

Tickets cost £8.50 in advance or £10.50 on the door from The Beehive.
