The Hebden Bridge Comedy Club returns to it’s regular second Sunday of the month slot at Hebden Bridge’s Old Gate this month with one of Europe’s newest stars.

Well, sort of, as the organisers explain...

Talent-free wannabe ‘Philberto’ underwent a dramatic rise in fame from man on the street to Portugal’s No 1 reality TV star.

The creation of English comic Milo McCabe, his vibrant bug-eyed energy and hard hitting style makes his set disappear in the blink of an eye.

There’s something captivating about the way he takes an absurd idea and runs with it and is particularly good when he’s riffing off the audience.

Jessica Fostekew was going to be a barrister then all of a sudden everything went right!

Having took her first, tentative steps into standing up only a few years ago Jess now performs nationally as well as a writer on Channel 4′s Stand Up For the Week and on BBC Radio 4′s ’The Now Show’

Support comes from London’s Bryan Lacey and Cork’s Andrew Ryan is compere for the evening.

After a successful 2014, the uncovering of talent is set to get the laughs continuing through 2015.

The show, at the Old Gate Bar and Restaurant, Old Gate, Hebden Bridge, starts at 8pm prompt and tickets are priced at £8.50 from the Old Gate or online at www.hebdenbridgecomedy.co.uk
