THE UK’s “king of comedy” is ready to showcase an evening of laughter as he comes to Chesham after his hit show success at the Edinburgh fringe last August.

Tony Slattery will be joined by fellow comedians Allan Lear and Robert Ross on Saturday September 14, at Chesham Cricket Club, for a night of off-the-cuff improvisation.

His show ‘What Line is it Anyway?’, named after the channel four programme he frequented on in the 90’s, was a roaring success at the fringe last summer.

He said: “We are all thrilled to be coming to Chesham.

“None of us has a clue what’s going to happen on stage - least of all me.

“That’s the joy of the show. It will be a giggle - for everyone.”

The comedy historian Robert Ross and “truly gifted” Alan Lear will join Tony, reflecting on the rollercoaster career that has taken in everything from the Cambridge Footlights to Carry on Columbus.

Mark Rann from Chesham Comedy Club said: “It’s a joy to welcome the UK’s king of improvisation to Chesham.

“I’m delighted that he’ll be entertaining the crowd at Chesham Comedy Club and can’t wait to see him on stage doing what he does best.”
