The Comedy Club Cambridge returns later this month for its first outing of the year.

The Belfry Hotel, in Cambourne, is playing host to the first show of 2015 on Friday, April 24.

The event will feature comedians Colin Cole, James Redmond, who has appeared in Coronation Street, and Mike McClean, famous for stints on The Office, Shameless and the Big Breakfast.

Headline act McClean originally trained as an actor, at the Arden School of Theatre in Manchester. However, after leaving college, he gravitated towards stand-up comedy and quickly broke onto the circuit with a comedy magic act.

He was soon spotted by a TV producer from Nickelodeon and went on to front several shows for the channel. He later joined ITV to present the kids game show “It’s Not Fair”, followed by two series of Mad for It, a live children’s show, he devised, for ITV. In 2010 Mike returned to his acting routes, playing Father Tony in Shameless.

The evening of comedy will also include a two-course meal and tickets are available for £25.

Doors to the venue open at 7:30pm. For tickets call 01954 714600.
