SATURDAY 24 JULY 2021

Finally something to laugh about
LYME REGIS COMEDY CLUB WITH JAKE LAMBERT
The Lyme Regis Comedy Club returned to the Marine Theatre last month with a sell-out show.It takes the format of a traditional comedy club with short sets by four performers, mixing up nationally-known comics with those who are becoming established. The monthly event is hosted by Bridport's Tom Glover, a popular local comedian and former postman.July's edition is headlined by Jake Lambert, who was called an “Expert, charming stand-up." by The Sunday Times. Jake Lambert fell into a career as a stand up. After gaining a following on Twitter under the pseudonym, he decided to put down his iPhone and pick up a microphone. It has proven to be a wise choice as he has made it to the final of the Amused Moose award, semi-finals of the BBC New Comedy Award 2015, and even won English Comedian of the Year.
He is joined by Joe Wells, a writer from Have I Got News For You and Andrew White, a favourite from the Edinburgh Fringe
Tom Glover said: "It was fantastic to return to our home at the Marine for a sell out show with old and new faces - comedy fans clearly needed a laugh after the last 18 months. It's a great value event for a tenner and a chance to see upcoming talent alongside big names."  Tickets £10 advance from marinetheatre.com

WALKS and TOURS

Do take advice about safe tide times before setting off for more than fifteen minutes hike, without a guide, along our beautiful beaches: - what appears to be an easy bit of ground to scramble over is more likely to be a treacherous mud slide - don't take a chance!

FOSSIL WALKS IN JULY

Get Fossiling on the Jurassic Coast! Join one of Lyme Regis’s famous fossil walks along this historic stretch of Dorset coast with Geologist Paddy Howe and Marine Biologist Chris Andrew. Some families return time and again to search with Paddy and Chris among the sand and rocks for fossils that have been washed down onto the beach after 190 million years. For adults and children alike, it’s an unforgettable experience.
