AN EVENING of comedy and mayhem is set for Sunday at Aldershot’s West End Centre.

Leading this month’s line-up at Hecklers Comedy Club is the energetic and charismatic Ian Cognito, known for his aggressive and unpredictable style.

Ian’s highly observational material is animated with a dash of character comedy and has a confrontational style.

Also appearing is the imaginative and brilliantly funny Inder Manocha, a rapidly rising star who pokes fun at big-booted racists while exposing the truth behind Bollywood movies.

Having studied at Oxford, Inder soon gave in to a long-standing desire to work in stand-up comedy, aiming to entertain as well as highlight some stark truths about intercultural relations.

Next up is the darkly funny Carey Marx, a former magician who now concentrates on stand-up and his sharp routine always hit the mark.

Pulling the whole evening together is the phenomenally talented John Ryan. Although relatively new on the comedy scene, John is fast gaining a reputation for smart and inventive observations, confident delivery and an amiable persona.

John’s other claim to fame is as a writer for children’s television shows Brum and Teletubbies.

West End Centre programme director Barney Jeavons said: “Hecklers is widely recognised as the best comedy night in the area.

“All these guys could end up on national television like Graham Norton and Mark Thomas, who we saw here at Hecklers before they hit the big time.”

Tickets are £6.50 from the box office on 01252 330040.
