Comedians brighten up winter nights in Derbyshire town

If winter is taking its toll and you wish that hibernation were an option for humans as well as hedgehogs, you might want to consider a night of comedy.

In Buxton there’s plenty of light relief to brighten the dark nights.

Stephen K Amos, star of Radio 4’s Life: An Idiot’s Guide, will be charming audiences during his Saturday night live show on January 23. Known for his assured feel-good delivery Stephen promises honest, original and sometimes wacky material.

Sunday night at the Arts Centre will see north-east stand-up Tony Jameson present a night of ‘silly stories and witty observations’, mainly about reaching the mid-point of life and wondering if he could have achieved more, were it not for the years playing football manager.

Veteran stand-up comic and multi-talented entertainer Brian Conley will be playing the Opera House on February 7 with everything you’d expect – laughs, sing-songs and daftness galore.

Other comedians during February include Adam Hills (The Last Leg) presenter and Canada’s Tom Stade and Stewart Francis.
