Comedian steps into the breach

THE line-up of a comedy show has seen a last-minute change.

Steve Harris was due to perform on Saturday at the Hot Potato Comedy Club show at the Town Hall Theatre in Raby Road.

But organisers say Steve has had to drop out due to unforseen circumstances, although hugely popular John Scott has been able to step in at short notice instead.

They say John is one of the most popular acts on the UK circuit and has been hailed as one of the top five comics emerging from Scotland today.

Comedian Rob Deering and the popular MC Matt Reed will still be performing.

A spokesman for the organisers said: “So, a cracking line-up of three great comics in Rob Deering, as seen on ITV1’s Comedy Rocks a couple of weeks back, John Scott, and huge local favourite Matt Reed as MC.

“There’s just about time for people to catch the last remaining tickets, with any remaining handful of tickets available on the door on the night of the show.”

Tickets are £8 and available by contacting (01429) 890000.
