THE cream of Devon comedy will descend upon the Beehive in Honiton this October for an evening of live stand up entertainment. The popular Comedy Avengers group, who host regular shows in Taunton, Plymouth and Exeter, are the best of the best of local stand-up comedy talent and will be the first to feature at what could become a regular comedy night for Honiton.
The coalition of comics have been hosting regular comedy nights in the south west for the past year as well as performing at a number of big festivals including OceanFest and Jurassic Fields. With numerous awards between them they offer a variety of styles including props, one liners and musical comedy as well as straightforward stand up.
The regular members of the group are Luke Honnoraty, Sandi Smith, Louis Burgess, Tom Glover, David Arnold, Richard James, Alf, Frankie Dore and Honiton's own Marcus Gill.
Marcus will be a familiar face to many as Honiton's own friendly local fishmonger but he's also a talented stand-up comedian with a reputation for his insights into life as a nerd which have seen him perform across the country at various comic book conventions as well as on the regular UK circuit.
Hosting the night will be Tom Glover, a comedian from Axminster who also hosts successful nights at the Weymouth Pavilion, Bridport Arts Centre and the Pilot Boat Inn in Lyme Regis.
Tickets: £5 in advance, £8 on the door
