Audiences are in for plenty of laughs when three top notch comedians take to the stage at the Hornchurch Comedy Club.

Sally Anne Hayward, Paul Pirie and Geoff Norcott will appear at The Cranleigh on Thursday.

Sally Anne’s strange sense of humour and razor sharp wit has earned her fans across the country.

An accomplished radio presenter with stage and TV acting credentials (Absolutely Fabulous, Why the Long Faces, and various TV warm-ups including Deal or No Deal), Sally-Anne’s confident persona and quick wit have rapidly made her a much sought-after compere.

Next up is Paul, who began his stand-up career after giving up acting and quickly establishing himself on the Scottish comedy circuit before launching on to the UK comedy scene and even appearing in Ikea’s April 2011 comedy-based TV advert.

Paul started stand-up in 2004, while living with his gran– having given away the keys to his flat in a pub quiz.

Since this time his career has encompassed TV, film and radio alongside his burgeoning skill as a stand-up, with Paul emerging as one of the biggest Scottish acts on the UK comedy circuit.

Finally Geoff, whose act is under-pinned by enthusiasm, optimism and a sharp comic mind.

On the comedy circuit his energy, combined with a storming mix of observations, impressions and satire has made him hugely popular in the UK and abroad.

On television, Geoff’s profile continues to rise – using his sharp one-liners to becoming a popular feature of all manner of debates including topical and sports shows.

Having briefly worked as main anchor on the WKD Shed Sports Show, Geoff progressed to mixing with the stars on The 888 Show (Channel One – formerly Virgin One) interviewing the legendary Shane Warne amongst the famous names.

Tickets are £17,50 including comedy and supper, contact 01708 443229
