Wimborne Comedy has one aim – to bring the cream of the UK comedy circuit to Dorset audiences at an affordable price. Work towards that end has begun with the launch of Wimborne Comedy Club. The club kicked off in early 2015 and can now be enjoyed in the fine function room of The Royal British Legion in West Borough, Wimborne
Richard, who started the club, feels there is a gap to be filled for local comedy lovers. “There isn’t enough live comedy on offer around the area, apart from the high priced tickets to see touring TV stars at the major venues” he said, adding “I want to establish a friendly local venue where top comics from the UK comedy circuit can be enjoyed at a reasonable cost and in a proper comedy club atmosphere”.
In addition to the bi-monthly Wimborne Comedy Club, Richard now has a similar club at Broadstone, an occasional venue in Swanage and is aiming to put comedy into more venues around Dorset. He has organised and run several other nights of standup comedy in the area and is now searching other towns and villages for more venues. If you are looking for a night of great comedy, on a one-off or regular basis, then get in touch with Richard here.
