A DUDLEY pub is hosting a comedy night this weekend, headlined by TV stand-up Alun Cochrane.

The comic will bring the laughs to the latest Comedy At The Court House, at the Court House pub in Dudley town centre, on Saturday May 18.

The Yorkshireman has appeared on the likes of Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and is also the regular co-host for Frank Skinner’s popular Saturday show on Absolute Radio.

The night will be hosted by resident MC Wayne Beese, from Dudley.

He said: "Alun Cochrane is a brilliant storytelling comic, a really dry wit with a brilliant observational mind.

“People will recognise him off the telly so it’s a real coup to get him here to Dudley to perform and, with tickets being an absolute bargain for a tenner, we hope people will turn out.

“The support acts are brilliant too and the pub has one of the best selections of real ale in the Black Country. Come and give us a try, you won’t be disappointed.”

The regular monthly night at the Court House is part of the Funny Beeseness chain of comedy clubs and shows.

Tickets are on sale now for £10 and the show starts at 8pm.
