Edinburgh Fringe benefits for St Albans comedy club

TWO full-length Edinburgh Fringe shows will be staged at Funny First Mondays, the city’s longest-running comedy club, next week.

Asian medic and Funny First Monday’s favourite Paul Sinha, is taking his show Looking at the Stars to Edinburgh in August but will be sharing it with St Albans’ audiences first at the Waterend Barn on Monday.

Increasingly successful in the comedy world, Paul’s perfomances have been described as mesmerising and his profile has risen with appearances on Radio Four’s The Now Show, Loose Ends and Just A Minute as well as Radio Five Live’s Fighting Talk.

Joining him will be Kerry Godliman who is performing WonderWoman at the Fringe this summer.

Appearances on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow have put her firmly in the national limelight and her show consists of what is described as, “hilarious stories from the coalface of coping.”

As an actress she has appeared in The Bill and Casualty as well as various comedy shows alongside the likes of Frankie Boyle and Miranda Hart.

Funny First Mondays gets underway at 8pm and tickets at �8 are available from the website www.funnyfirstmondays.co.uk or on the door on the night.
