GET ready for a night of laughter as the Braintree Comedy Club returns to town with a cracking line-up of comedians.

Thursday will see television’s Patrick Monahan take to the stage.

The comedian, who is a veteran of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, will be followed by funny men Danny Sutcliffe, Larry Dean and Dane Baptiste at the theatre in Bocking End.

But the fun continues just days later on Saturday, with another side-splitting comedy line up.

James Acaster, Joe Bor, Justin Panks and Ross McGrane will be stepping on stage with an entertaining show.

Doors open for both shows at 7pm for an 8pm start.

Tickets only £10 in advance, more on the door, available from wegottickets.com/thebocking or in person from Stationary Solutions, Fairfield Road.

For more information visit from thebocking.com or 07732 311819.

Good Morning Mr Editor Sir!

Season’s Greetings to you

However, even though this is supposed to be the period of ‘Kindness and Goodwill to all Mankind’ I do rather hope that you still have your Editor's Poking Stick fairly close to hand. If so, may I suggest that you summon the scribe who produced the above news item and administer a salutary jab in the ribs!

Surely, anyone who writes in the English Language for a living should be fully aware of the subtle difference between the words ‘Stationary’ and ‘Stationery’. (An intercostal application of about 10 Newton Metres should do the trick I think).

On a point of accuracy I have another niggling issue regarding this article. But not having undergone any theatrical experiences in Braintree for a number of years - indeed not since operating a spotlight for some of Francis Golightly’s thespian enterprises in the Bocking End Institute in the 1950s – I am not familiar with the venues currently available.

Notwithstanding this though, I must confess to being a little sceptical about the accompanying photograph which depicts a most splendid auditorium.

Does this really show the inside of the venue for the forthcoming event?

Surely we a not being misled are we?

That picture is of course not of the venue, the editor has just chosen it from a stock library, nothing out of the ordinary when they don't have one at hand.

Muk says that ‘the picture is of course not of the venue’. Why use the term ‘of course’ other than as a way of suggesting that one should automatically expect the BWT not to publish a picture that in any way realistically depicts the actual subject in question.

It seems to me to that Muk is perhaps saying: ‘Let’s face it, standards are poor – may as well get used to it’! If so, he has my concurrence.

I still maintain that anyone who was not familiar with the layout of Bocking Arts Theatre could be somewhat disappointed to find that the auditorium bore little resemblance to the picture published in the news article (or should I have said ‘advertisement?)

I have attempted to find a picture that shows what the interior of the Bocking Arts Theatre actually looks like. All my on-line attempts have failed. Why might that be? They’re not ashamed of it are they?

No, I meant "of course" to mean "this is definitely not the Bocking Arts Theatre". The Bocking Arts Theatre has a smaller capacity and doesn't look as grandiose as that picture. Also, take that picture and drag it into a Google image search and you'll get results telling you that picture is from a stock library.
