Taking their chances on a cold winter night, three stand-up comics appeared on Thursday, February 8 at the Wells Maltings Theatre.

Miracle of miracles! All were worth watching.

‘Stand-up comedy’ is a strange description for creative language, imagery wherever it can despite any threats of impropriety: Tim Fitzheigham, good value (born in Norfolk) introduced the other two acts, riffing gently with the audience before the turn of El Baldino.

Baldino – pump, middle aged, bald and pink faced, was impossibly silly in a Tommy Cooper style, His clowning, puns and terrible magic tricks were pleasing.

Finally there was Ben Clover, elfin thin, puckish featured, who commented upon being a young dad in

London in language which verged delicately on surreal.

Three class acts, enjoyed by the audience.
