COMEDIAN Joe Wells will be hosting a pub comedy night next week.

The Have I Got News For You writer will be at the Wave Maiden, on Osborne Road in Southsea, for his second show which could become a monthly event.

Joe said he wanted the show to be a mix of new, innovative and original comedians mixed with those who were established and experienced.

‘There’s an exciting scene of new acts in Portsmouth,’ he said.

‘We want innovative and original comedians.’

A range of comedy will be available throughout the evening and Joe described the show as a comedy club for comedy geeks.

The event is on November 9 at 7.30pm. Tickets are £5 on the door and booking will be an extra 50p.
