Comedy night is back at the Queens Head

The latest in a long-running series of comedy nights at the Queens Head in Belper is to take place tonight (Wednesday, March 20).

The event is to be held upstairs at the Chesterfield Road-based venue, starting at 8.30pm.

On the bill will be comedians Charlie Sanders, Sean Morley, and sketch group Staple/Face all of whom are from Sheffield, along with regular MC James Hately.

James has been running comedy nights at the Queens Head since September 2011. During that time, his aim has been to try to give a platform for new local acts, and also those acts considered a little different.

Previous events have featured everything from cutlery safety experts to professors of man studies and all manner of acts who you might not find in your average comedy club.

James explained: “We’ve featured some top acts including Malcolm Hardee Award Winner Johnny Sorrow, Leicester Mercury Award winner Matt Hollins, star of Britains Got Talent Cal Halbert and more.

“It’s not your average comedy night and is best approached with an open mind ,but we’ve got quite a few regulars and we like to think there’s something for everyone. “

The next comedy night at the venue after this one is to be held on April 17.

Entry to tonight’s event is £3.
