WHY not start 2013 with a really good laugh? Yeovil’s Octagon Theatre has a double whammy of comedy coming your way in the next few weeks.

There will be non-stop laughter on Thursday, January 31, when the Cornish ambassador of comedy, Jethro, returns to South Somerset.

His unique, irreverent style provides the perfect platform from which to regale audiences with his stories and mischievous repertoire.

Ticket for the show, which starts at 7.30pm, cost £19.50.

A week later, on Friday, February 8, from 8pm, the star of The Thick of It and Mock the Week, Chris Addison, will be at the Octagon.

He will be bringing his twice extended and critically acclaimed tour, The Time is Now Again, to South Somerset.

Theatre bosses are confidently predicting that this will be a night of non-stop stand-up from one of the best comedians on the circuit.

Audiences should note that the performance may contain adult material which some may find offensive.

Tickets for the show cost £20.
