ONE of the country’s most respected stand-up comedians, Dominic Holland, is to come to town to perform at Jan Jack’s Laughter-House comedy club.

A Perrier Best Newcomer and Nominee at the Edinburgh Fringe, Dominic has performed five individual one man shows and continues to tour the country and beyond.

He has appeared on countless television programmes, including Have I Got News for You and the Royal Variety Performance, and is a big favourite on the corporate speaking circuit.

He’ll be joined on the Basingstoke comedy club’s bill on Thursday, July 17 by the fabulous George Egg, who most recently has been the support act for Lee Mack, Micky Flanagan and Jack Dee. 

George Egg 

Basingstoke Gazette:

George has been hailed as “a Tommy Cooper for the twenty first century”. He bounds onto the stage and performs original, innovative and whimsical comedy.

They’ll be joined in the Top of the Town’s Red Lion Hotel by Don Tran, who has performed comedy for six years.

His dry delivery uses the minimum necessary effort to convey his humour, giving him a legitimate claim to being the world's most energy efficient comedian.

The compere for the evening will be the popular Rich Wilson.

Tickets priced £14 available from The Red Lion Hotel reception and also available via We Got Tickets through the Laughter-House website,

Doors open at 7.30pm and the show starts at 8.15pm. Pre booking is advisable and there is no reserved seating.


We have two tickets to this fantastic gig to give away to a Gazette reader.
