Open Mic acts line up to win Jo Brand support slot

Worthing's family-friendly Matt's Comedy Club returns to action again on 30 October with an Open Mic with a difference an expert panel will pick a winner for a prized paid-for spot at Jo Brand's sell-out gig at the Connaught Theatre on 20 November.

With more than a dozen acts of all shapes and sizes, drawn from across the south coast and further afield, a packed night is in store.

From observational comedy to gag merchants, deadpan dry wit to surreal bundles of energy, there will be something for every taste.

Everyone gets 5 minutes and will be assessed for originality, material and performance by a judging panel of promoters and experienced comedy watchers.

Club MC Russ Bravo explains: "Our Open Mic nights have always been great fun, and given a chance to new, local and up and coming acts to make their debut or build up experience.

"We wanted to do something a bit different and when Worthing Theatres suggested offering a paid-for spot on the same bill as Jo Brand, we jumped at the chance. It's a great opportunity for someone to get their act out there in front of a sell-out crowd maybe their first step to stardom?"

Tickets for the gig on Thursday 30 October at the Connaught Studio (8pm) are just 5 from from Worthing Theatres on 01903 206206 or, local outlets Parklife, Music Mania and The Lazy Brunch and on the door.

Matt's Comedy Club is a family-friendly club offering a fun night out for the whole family. Find out more at or
