LAUGHS aplenty will be on offer in Lowestoft later this year as a host of top comedians head for town.

The Journal can today reveal that a number of top acts have been lined up to appear at the Marina Theatre from October for the venue's autumn season.

Following hard on the heels of successful appearances by the likes of Alan Carr, Lee Evans and Michael McIntyre, the Marina is expecting big demand for its upcoming shows featuring Shappi Khorsandi and Jon Richardson, Rich Hall, Kevin Bridges and Russell Kanen.

First up on October 15 is a two-part show featuring Jon Richardson - an Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and Have I Got News For You panelist - who has been hailed as one of the sharpest, brightest and most in-demand young comedians on the UK comedy scene.

He is bringing his new and extended Edinburgh show to Lowestoft as part of a double-bill with the star of Radio 4's 'Shappi Talk', Shappi Khorsandi, in her brand new show about wanting it all.

Having been described as Scotland's young comedy prodigy, Kevin Bridges is set to stir Lowestoft audiences when he appears on November 6, having already made appearances on BBC1's Live at the Apollo and Have I Got News For You and Channel 4's Comedy Gala at the 02.

His unique brand of social commentary, astute observations and sharp one-liners have led some critics to describe him as the hottest act to come out of Scotland in the last 10 years.

Appearing at the Marina on November 30 is deadpan US stand-up comic Rich Hall.

Dubbed the master of absurdist irony, Rich is a winner of the Perrier Award 2000 and two Emmy Awards, and is also a regular panellist on BBC 2's show QI. As fans will know, he enjoys laying into his fellow Americans and life across the Pond at every opportunity!

Triple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and co host of ITV2's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here NOW!, Russell Kane arrives at the Marina on March 5 with his Smokescreens and Castles show which explores self, family, and the consequences of his dad buying his own council house.

Sociological silliness and high energy contortions are guaranteed.

Tickets are now on sale for all these shows from the Marina's box office on 01502 533200.
