REGARDED as one of the sharpest comedians on the circuit, Jeremy Hardy is performing at The Radlett Centre next Friday, October 2.

The alternative stand-up comedian has been around for many years having made his television debut in various comedy shows in the late 1980s.

Radio Four audiences know him from I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue and The News Quiz but his politics do not always go down well with his audiences - he is a socialist who has been accused of being an IRA supporter.

But his softer side came out when his close friend and fellow comedian Linda Smith died and he not only eulogised her in many publications but also wrote the Guardian obituary.

Jeremy comes on stage at 8pm and tickets at £15 with concessions £10 are available from the box office on 01923 859291.

l Queen tribute band Mercury will be performing all the great hits of the band when they play at The Radlett Centre next Saturday evening, October 3.

They aim to recapture the sight, sounds and emotions of Queen and will be performing such hits as Killer Queen, Kind of Magic, Great Pretender and Bohemian Rhapsody.

Joseph Lee Jackson portrays Freddie with Glen Scrimshaw as Brian May, Pat Coleman as Roger Taylor, Steve Humphreys as John Deacon and Lee Harvey as Spike Edney.

Mercury comes on stage at 7.30pm and tickets are £16 with concessions £15.

l Children's TV legends Zippy, George and Bungle star in Rainbow Live! Zippy Superstar DJ at The Radlett Centre a couple of days later.

The classic children's television programme was recently voted Best Children's TV Show of All Time in a survey commissioned by the BBC.

The trio get up to all kinds of fun and frolics in a non-stop live show which finds Zippy's life changing suddenly when he wins a hit record contract with Yellow Peril Records.

The show can be seen at 1pm and 3.30pm on Sunday, October 4, and tickets are £9.50 with a family ticket for four £36.
