A NIGHT of comedy is coming to the Empire Theatre next month.

Award-winning comedian Zoe Lyons will be gracing the stage of the Halstead theatre to tickle the funnybones of the audience.

Lyons is at the top of her game as a familiar face on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow on BBC One, as well as being a winner of the Funny Women competition and Dave’s Funniest Joke of the Fringe.

This hugely popular comic comes to the Empire with a fresh crop of quick-fire observational gags, delivered with utter conviction, not to mention proper laugh-out-loud one-liners.

Along with her, Zoe is bringing three special guests to help fill the room with laughter.

Northerner Craig Murray is said to be one of the hottest rising talents in the comedy world.

He is a resident compere at award-winning London club The Funny Side...of Covent Garden and has shared stages with some of the very best comedy acts in the business, including Harry Hill, Stewart Lee and even Hollywood legend the late Robin Williams.

Joining the line-up is one-liner merchant Tony Cowards.

Something of a Twitter sensation, Tony’s jokes turn up in all sorts of places, from greetings cards to The Times newspaper.

Even if you’ve never heard of him there’s a good chance that you’ll have laughed at one of his gags.

One of Ricky Gervais’ favourite comedians will also take to the stage having sold out seven Edinburgh shows himself.

Audiences may recognise Adam Bloom from his cameo appearances in Mock the Week and Russell Howard’s Good News.

The four comics are at the Empire on Saturday, April 6.

Doors open at 7.15pm for an 8pm start.

Tickets are priced £13 and are available from the Empire box office on 07778 025490.

The show is suitable for adults over the age of 18.
