“If you’re at a loose end on Saturday and you haven’t already got tickets come and see this show – I absolutely promise you won’t regret it,” said Wayne.

“Tom is one of our most popular and most requested acts and gets standing ovations and encores every time we put him on.

“He is quite simply up there with the most talented comics in this country and all three characters are absolute comedy genius.

"It would be great to get a full house and get the festive season off to a bang in Whitchurch.”

It will be the sixth stand-up show brought to Whitchurch by Funny Beeseness, with previous headliners including Milton Jones, Omid Djalili, Rich Hall and Seann Walsh.
