The audience will enjoy a line-up of four professional comedians known for their unique and humorous story-telling styles.

Cally Beaton, described by Time Out as "an exciting and hilarious talent, definitely one to watch", will take centre stage.

The ‘QI’ regular has a reputation for intelligent, punchline-rich material that draws on observation and anecdotal experience.

Second in line, West Country native Jake Baker brings off-kilter storytelling to Taunton Comedy Club.

He has previously been nominated for the BBC New Comedy Award on three separate occasion.

The Edinburgh Reporter described him as "endearingly offbeat, with great comic timing and an engagingly whimsical mind.'

While the opening act, Michael Legge, is a seasoned headliner celebrated on the comedy circuit.

With a BAFTA nomination and a Sony Award to his name, Mr Legge has entertained audiences across the globe, on MTV's Comedy Central Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience, and on radio programmes such as BBC Radio 4 & 6 and The Dave Gorman Show on Absolute Radio.

The evening's MC, Pam Ford, has gone from pub landlady to known comedian, with ambitions beyond her small Kent village pub.

She thrills audiences with her unique comedy set in comedy clubs and theatres across the UK and Europe, and is a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Genius Events said: "Our club promises unadulterated fun brimming with surprises.

"You can unwind, enjoy a drink or three and overdose on laughter."

The organisers are confident this will be a night to remember, finding humour in the absurdities of everyday life and promising a hearty laughter-filled excursion.

The lineup solidifies Taunton Comedy Club's commitment to showcasing comedy talent, ensuring that laugh enthusiasts have a great night out in this Somerset town.

CICCIC and Genius Events encourage early booking as ticket numbers are limited.
