Host and organiser Wayne Beese, said: "I’m over the moon we’ve managed to get Henning, it will be his first appearance on one of our bills and I’m sure it will be one to remember.

“He is a fantastic stand-up, and in Roger and Nige we’ve got two acts in support who’ve gone down a storm whenever we’ve booked them.

“It all makes for an amazing night of comedy, and we’d urge people to get in quick and book as Henning is usually very popular.”
