THERE'S another chance for comedy therapy as the Last Minute Comedy Club enters its 13th year at Hitchin's Woodside Theatre.

Their aim? To present a line-up that will lift the harshest of post-yuletide blues.

January 13 will feature Nick Wilty, Robin Ince and Last Minute's regular Paul B Edwards.

Nick is described as a "globetrotting comedy god" and "one of the best acts around with a unique understated, whimsical style that is truly a comedy iron fist in a velvet glove."

He is an accomplished comic and has a large and ever-changing repertoire that should guarantee to please.

Alongside Nick, Robin is probably best known for being Ricky Gervais' support act as Stewart Foote in the first series of The Office.

He has also written and performed for The Pilot Show and The 11 o'clock Show both on Channel Four and Radio 2's The Day The Music Died.

Robin will confuse and amaze with his stories of John Peel and transgender frustration!

Holding the whole show together will be MC Paul, a regular on the UK festival circuit and a multi-faceted performer.

There are no reservations, no advance bookings or tickets, simply turn up at the Woodside Theatre on a first come first served basis.

Doors open at 7.30pm, and shows start at 9pm.

Tickets are £8 (£6 for members and £5 for students/unemployed).

Call 07939 081391 for further information.
