He joins Canadian John Hastings, hotly-tipped newcomer Steff Todd and special guest master of ceremonies Andy Fury at the next instalment of Hartlepool’s Hot Potato Comedy Club.

It will be held at the Town Hall Theatre on Saturday, November 26 and organisers are predicting it will be a hit.

Peter Vincent, of promoters Ten Feet Tall, said: “We’re looking forward to a top night here.

“It’s great to have Andy Fury back in Hartlepool as our special guest MC, and it’s easy to see why Eddy Brimson is one of the most in-demand headliners in the land.”

Away from comedy Eddy has a string of acting credits including EastEnders, Casualty and Silent Witness.

Peter added: “John Hastings stormed the US and Canada, and now he’s wowing comedy fans all over this country too.

“And don’t miss Steff Todd. You’ll be able to see for yourself why a cracking mix of impressions and topical one-liners are rapidly establishing her as one of the best new comics around today.”

The show starts at 8pm and tickets are £9 or £7 for anyone who buys up to a week in advance on the early bird scheme.
