Doggett & Ephgrave’s Mostly Comedy nights are settling in to their new home at Hitchin’s Sun Hotel, and next up is wrinkly writer and wit Arthur Smith, as famous for his outrageous cabaret antics as his TV appearances on the likes of Grumpy Old Men and The One Show.

He’ll be joined on the bill next Thursday, February 18, by rising star Harriet Kemsley, whose mantlepiece already boasts ‘new act’ trophies from comedy festivals in Bath and Brighton.

Doors open at 7.30pm with the laughs due to start at 8pm, and hosts Glyn Doggett and David Ephgrave holding it all together

Tickets are £11, and you can book yours in advance at
