The Laughing Stag returns!

On Friday 19th April, 8pm, at the Stag Inn, Hastings, we are proud to present comics William Stone, Mel Byron, John Rands and Emily Kennedy-Barnes, compered by Mistress of Ceremonies Juliet Brando. Entry is free but capacity is limited, so get in early for a comfy seat.

William Stone has been a finalist for both BBC New Comedy Award 2018 and Leicester Square Theatre New Act of the Year 2018, and has recently appeared on on BBC Radio4 and BBC3. “William Stone cracks me up, he’s got some belting gags that I wish I’d thought of. Highly recommended” Angela Barnes (Radio4 Newsjack, Live at the Apollo.)

Mel Byron ‘May just make your day.’ – the Scotsman. Delightful, incisive, hilarious, Mel Byron takes a skewed view on the absurdities of the world.

John Rands likes to think you’re never too old to be a new face of comedy. Since John’s stand-up debut in 2018 he’s played gigs around the UK, including Leicester, Lancaster, London and the Edinburgh Fringe, as well as becoming a regular on the Brighton circuit.

Emily Kennedy-Barnes has been on the production side of comedy for the last few years and founded the Funny For A Woman events and podcast. This year she is giving standup a go herself. Emily shares the extremities of what it is to be a Brighton born and bred lass and how conventionality is an abstract concept to her. Be prepared to have your chuckle muscles tickled.
