PEMBROKESHIRE’S leading comedy club is roaring back into life under the new banner of Laughing Dragon Cabaret.

Span Arts’ Comedy Club has been re-imagined, re-invigorated and re-located to present a fresh and fine set of rib-tickling acts.

Theatr Gwaun has teamed up with the community arts charity to launch Laughing Dragon Cabaret, which will take place in the 1920s theatre space of the Fishguard venue.

The new venture was pulled together with the help of local poet and comic, Clare Ferguson-Walker, thanks to her knowledge of, and expertise in, the comic scene.

Clare, whose first solo Edinburgh show got two five-star reviews, will be the master of ceremonies for the first show on Thursday September 12 at 8pm.

Headlining will be the award-winning stand-up comedian Andrew O’Neill, hailed by TimeOut as ‘one of the funniest comedians on the circuit’.

He has performed in over a dozen different countries and is at home performing to rowdy weekend comedy clubs as much as to his own cult following.

He has written and toured a number of solo comedy shows, including the current Andrew O’Neill’ Black Magick Fun Hour, and his tv credits include Never Mind The Buzzcocks.

Laughing Dragon will also host acts from Johnny FluffyPunk, known for his acute social observation and sharp irony, and Louis Burgess who will be entertaining with a rip-roaring combination of singing, rapping, sampling, beatboxing and strumming.

Tickets are now available from the Span Arts Box Office or Theatr Gwaun or online - £12/£10/£10 (full/friends/concession) in advance, or £14.£12/£12 on the door.
