Comedy fans are invited to beat the January blues at The Capitol, Horsham, with a healthy blast of laughter from Barnstormers.

The stand-up gig takes place on Sunday, January 18 (7.30pm), with further shows on the third Sunday of each month.

Freewheeling compere Kevin Precious is set to introduce three top acts from the London circuit.

This month the line-up includes Geordie giant Luke Benson, the larger than life Quincy and top circuit and TV regular Zoe Lyons.

Luke Benson has been working his way up in the circuit, establishing himself as a strong opening act and compere. He has performed at the Edinburgh Festival, as well as Bestival and Beni Cassim, and has appeared on the BBC’s The Blame Game.

Stand-up, presenter, actor and compere Quincy hosts his own live chat show, is a TV warm-up (BBC’s Blouse and Skirts) and has presented on BBC1 Xtra and Klymaxx FM.

His live comedy work includes weekends at The Comedy Store and regular weekends at Jongleurs and Jongleurs On The Road. He is currently working on a sitcom.

Zoe Lyons created a huge buzz in 2004 when she won the ‘Nivea Funny Women Award 2004’ and reached the finals of ‘Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny Award’ in the same year. As a result she has become a highly sought-after act on both the national and international circuit.

Tickets cost £10 in advance or £12 on the door.
