UP-AND-COMING comedy star Rosie Jones will visit Whitchurch later this year for an 'exciting' stand-up show.

Rosie, who is currently in Tokyo for Channel 4's 'The Last Leg', will appear alongside 'Phoenix Nights' stars Justin Moorhouse and Barbara Nice at the Civic Centre on Friday, November 19.

Justin, who played Young Kenny in the Peter Kay classic, has also appeared on the likes of 'Live At The Apollo', while Stockport housewife Barbara, whose alter-ego Janice Connolly was Holy Mary, reached the semi-finals of 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2019.

Before the Last Leg, Rosie was last seen on TV hosting her own Channel 4 travel show, 'Trip Hazard'.

Wayne Beese, who will be hosting the show under the Funny Beeseness banner, said he was looking forward to the evening.

"We're absolutely delighted with the line-up we have been able to put together for this show, and tickets are going out quickly already," he said.

"Rosie appeared at the Civic a couple of years ago in support of Omid Djalili for one of our first ever shows there and really took the roof off.

"Her career has gone from strength to strength since then and she is now a regular fixture on our TV screens and well on the way to becoming a household name.

"Justin and Barbara will be equally well-known to many and are always loved whenever we put them on, so I'm really excited for what promises to be a fabulous night of belly laughs.

"Get booked up and come and join us."

Funny Beeseness is currently running Whitchurch Comedy Festival, with Paul Sinha the latest big name to appear this Friday in a marquee on the lawns of the Dodington Lodge Hotel.

Rich Hall will be there next week – Friday, September 10 – while Henning Wehn and Russell Kane will be at the Civic on September 19 and September 24 respectively.
