A HOST of top names from the UK's stand-up comedy circuit are due to perform at a north Kent theatre next month.

Outside the Box Comedy Night, which hold monthly comedy evenings at venues across the south east, will be at the theatre in London Road, Sevenoaks, next Thursday and on January 14 next year.

The evening is compered by resident host Maff Brown, who has written for TV's comedy quiz show Shooting Star and for comedian Omid Djalili.

He said: "Outside the Box has been growing for nearly four years.

"Some big, big names in comedy have come to test their material out and get ready for national tours.

"In the past year, we have had Frank Skinner, Bill Bailey, Alan Carr, Jimmy Carr, Russell Howard and Robin Williams, to name but a few.

"Outside the Box Comedy Club specialises in making the nights seem like a 'one off' and a 'you should have been there' experience."

Next Thursday will see shows from Tom Stade, who has performed on BBC1's Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, Edward Aczel, who was the winner of the 2008 comedy award the Malcolm Hardee Award and also Jo Caulfield, from BBC Radio 4's It's That Jo Caulfield again.

Chris Addison, from BBC hit political comedy The Thick Of It and Rob Rouse, who used to front the Friday Night Project on Channel 4, are also expected to appear.

More top acts are back on January 14, with gigs from Carl Donnelly, a 2009 Edinburgh Festival Award Nominee, Steve Williams, who writes and performs on BBC3's Russell Howard Good News and Alistair Barrie From Comedy Central's The World Stands Up.

Holly Walsh, co-host of late night Channel 4 comedy magazine show TNT will also perform, bringing her own brand of snappy wit to the show.

Tickets for the evening are £12.50. For more information, contact the Stag box office on 01732 450175 visit their website at or Outside the Box comedy club at
