THE UK’s leading comedy improv troupe are headlining a top bill of stand-up in Wollaston on Friday.

Four-piece The Noise Next Door take centre stage at the intimate Fitz of Laughter Comedy Club at Katie Fitzgerald’s.

The group, who have appeared on Sunday Night Live At The Palladium, perform completely improvised sets made up of songs and sketches based on audience shout outs.

Unusually, the lads will be filling two of the three stand-up slots on the bill, with Australian Thomas Green opening and the Noise doing both the middle and headline slots.

Resident MC Wayne Beese will be hosting the show.

Wayne, who comes from Dudley, said: “This is a great opportunity to see an extended club set in intimate surroundings from The Noise Next Door.

“They take the roof off wherever they go and went down a storm when we had them opening for Tom Stade at the Civic in Brierley Hill last year.

“We’ve been trying to get them back ever since. If you were a fan of the improv show Whose Line Is It Anyway in the 90s, you’ll love the kind of stuff these guys do.

“We’re also delighted to have Thomas Green in support, who is one of the best new acts we’ve seen this year.

“All in all it promises to be a great night of comedy and we’d urge people to come along.”

The intimate 100-seater club runs on the first Friday of every month and was nominated as Best Midlands Comedy Night in the What’s On Readers Awards for both 2017 and 2018.
