Expect mind-bloggling tricks, witty banter and daft songs aplenty at the final show of 2012 for Worthing's Matt's Comedy Club.
The town's family-friendly comedy club has a high class line-up in store at The Empress Suite on Worthing seafront, on Thursday 1 November.
Headline act is the extraordinary comedy magician John Archer, star of ITV's Fool Penn & Teller last year.
John has been carving a strong position in the comedy magic genre over the past few years, including a prized commendation from Derren Brown who booked him for a family celebration and called him "… brilliant, hysterically funny" and added "I'd recommend him unreservedly".
The former Magic Circle Stage Magician of the Year has also worked closely with Tim Vine over the years, and Vine fans will know him well as 'Flag Hippo' from the punmeister's daft live shows. As if that wasn't commendation enough, he's also an actor, writer and skilled ukulele player.

Support comes from young quirky songster Jay Foreman, who was due to take part in the 2011 Worthing Comedy Festival before being snatched away for Dave Gorman's UK tour.
Described as "a Victoria Wood for the Spotify generation", Jay has taken shows to Edinburgh and grabbed a growing fanbase with his clever, surreal and charming acoustic song based comedy. Discover more about Jay at www.jayforeman.co.uk
