Comedy nights will be making a welcome return to Buckingham at the end of this month when Andrew Maxwell comes to town.
Buckingham’s comedy nights were launched last year following a performance from Shappi Khorsandi at the Buckingham Fringe, in 2011.
Previous performers have included Miles Jupp, Simon Evans and Seann Walsh.
Maxwell will be headlining the first of this year’s comedy nights, which are held at the Old Town Hall.
Supported by Rob Deering, his performance will be held on January 27.
Maxwell, an Irish stand-up comedian renowned for his cutting edge comedy and intrepid social commentary, appeared on Dave channel’s One Night Stand, and recently on BBC’s Have I Got News For You and ITV2’s Celebrity Juice.
Last year, he had his own series on BBC Three called Conspiracy Roadtrip.
Rob Deering, with his easy charm, cheesy singing voice and razor-sharp wit quickly established himself as a firm favourite on the London comedy circuit and has played all the major comedy clubs nationwide.
The Sunday Times have called him a ‘truly wonderful stand-up.’
Buckingham’s comedy nights are part of the events put on by Buckingham Town Council’s town centre and events committee.
Committee chairman, Robin Stuchbury, said: “We intend, with your support, to keep bringing great comedians to Buckingham throughout the year.”
Tickets are now on sale, priced at £12.50 (over 18s only) at The Tourist Information Centre, in the Old Gaol, and Villiers Hotel.
Doors open at 7.30pm and the show starts at 8pm.
