Some of the biggest names in stand-up have graced Peterborough stages in recent weeks but the city is still a hotbed for the up and coming comedians too.

Andrew Bird

Funhouse Comedy Club has been bringing talent to Peterborough for years – and for the last three has had a platform at The Lightbox Café, in Bridge Street, where it returns on September 30.

Topping the bill is the effortlessly engaging Andrew Bird, who was the support act on Michael McIntyre’s most recent arena tour and has also supported Rhod Gilbert and Lee Hurst on tour, as well as performing internationally.

Watching The Young Ones with his brothers as an eight- year-old, at two in the morning on Comic Relief, he realised then that he wanted to be funny in some way.

With his personal appeal and superbly crafted, funny anecdotes, he captivates everyone.

Opening the night will be Mandy Muden, the only woman ever to combine comedy and magic on the UK comedy circuit.

She has appeared on numerous TV programmes including Britain’s Got Talent, reaching the semi-finals. Her string of mad, disastrous tricks and ridiculous jokes leaves her audience in tears of laughter.

Completing the line-up is Jamie D’Souza with his unique and catchy musical mixes.
