Cold Feet Star to Headline at Popular Country Pub

John Thomson, the star of Cold Feet, The Fast Show and longtime collaborator of Steve Coogan is to headline The Ha Ha Club at The Sparrowhawk, Fence on Tuesday 23rd July.

Thomson, 44, is making a return to stand up following a successful career in film, television, theatre and radio spanning over two decades.

After winning the Perrier award in 1992 with Steve Coogan at the Edinburgh Festival he went on to work and write with Steve in the Paul Calf video diaries and Coogan’s Run; later to play the pub landlord Ken in Men Behaving Badly.

Landlord, Mark Etherington said: “It’s a bit of a coup and an absolute pleasure to have John headlining our comedy gig.”

The Sparrowhawk has been running successful comedy nights for over two years and has previously played host to Chris Ramsey star of BBC hit comedy Hebburn.

He added: “Our comedy nights are always well received and we’re always trying to raise the bar in terms of talent.”

Support will come in the form of El Purnell, numero uno comicá d’Ecuador. Delivering his act in his native Spanish he captivates the audience with confidence, bravado and high-levels of interaction and participation to create an hilarious set.

Expertly compared by the jocular Will Duggan, the lineup will be completed by Will Setchell and Burnley’s own, Arron Riley.

Tickets are only £10 and are available at or from the pub on 01282 603034.
