It’s officially 2012 and so you now have only a few days to get the paracetamol into you, purchase a brand new head and then prepare to laugh it off as Masons Comedy Club returns this Thursday, January 5.

Organisers have a stunning line up this month in order to get the New Year off to a great start. You can also use the club as an excuse to laugh away all your left over cares from 2011.

On the bill for Thursday night are a whole host of top local comics. Returning to the club by popular demand is Morgan Hearst. Morgan had a great comedic 2011 is back fresh from his hit Belfast fringe show ‘Failed Human.’ Joining Morgan will be Adam Laughlin, a comic who has wowed them recently as a panelist on The Movie Quiz and with a great appearance at The Comedy Cottage. He’s been described by Culture NI as “a big scarf, a bigger beard and a dollop of Derry charm.”

Headlining the night will be Sean Hegarty, the new NI king of one liners who has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe, been a finalist on BBC’s Find me the Funny and been described by TV’s Jason Manford as “very very funny”.

As always the night will be prepped and served with delight by Northern Ireland’s top MC. Micky Bartlett has gone from strength to strength. At a young age his credits already include BBC’s Find Me the Funny, LOL, Sketchy, Radio Ulster’s The Blame Game and How to Cope, as well as MCing the Empire in Belfast and providing warm up for Rhod Gilbert.

This is going to be a great night for great comedy, all topped off with some nice drink promos an followed by music from the wonderful ‘Thumpin’ Jellyfish’. Snap it up and laugh like a gibbon, you know you want to!

The night kicks off at 9pm at Masons Bar on Magazine Street. Admission is but a mere £5 and comes complete with drink promotions and musical support after the show.
