AFTER a couple of months trying to find a suitable home, the Funnybone Comedy Club has finally found a worthy place to hang their hat. The opening night at The Brit in Ashley Cross proved to be the perfect setting.

An intimate and lively environment, The Brit crackled with excitement as host Michael Callaghan introduced three new stand-up comedians to the stage.

First up was genial Irishman Rory O Hanlon who quickly won the affection of the Parkstone audience with lurid childhood tales of his flame hair.

Perhaps the highlight of the night was the heavily-beaded figure of Phil Jerrod who delivered an epic monologue of first world observations and paranoia. Phil is certainly a comedian to keep an eye on.

Rounding off a glorious return for Funnybone was Romesh Ranganathan,  who delivered a self-deprecating masterpiece on his experiences of race, being a Vegan and killer whales.

With comedy every Thursday night, be sure to get yourself a ticket.
