There will be no shortage of laughter when the next Comedy Club heads into Hornchurch.

Comedians Ryan McDonnell, Joe Rowntree and Imran Yusuf will be at the Cranleigh on Thursday, September 22.

Belfast born Ryan is building up quite a reputation for himself on the UK comedy circuit while Joe Rowntree is an ace performer and writer composing put-downs for Anne Robinson on the Weakest Link.

Graduating from Goldsmiths College in 2003 with a BSc Hons in psychology, Joe spends his days delivering inspirational and educational courses in goal mapping, mind-mapping and accelerated learning techniques.

In the evenings, Joe works as a man of mirth, trading his surreal observations for laughter, performing in some of the most prestigious and reputable comedy clubs.

Headlining act Imran Yusuf made his TV debut shortly after the 2010 Edinburgh Festival, appearing on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Road Show (BBC1) and the Edinburgh Comedy Fest (BBC3) broadcast in September 2010.

Renowned for his stinging, lyrical street-slang verbiage and super-high energy performance that triggers an eruption of belly-aching laughter.

Fast and furious, yet charmingly endearing, this is a very unique voice.

Imran encompasses a rich multitude of cultural assets from across the planet that defines him as a youthful, energetic and original voice that embodies the cultural wealth that exists in modern Britain.

Tickets are £17.50, including supper, from 01708 443 229.
