A comedy night has been set up by Steph Weeks to raise money for Mary Elton Primary School in Weston-super-Mare on September 15.

Class Act Stand Up will feature local comedians from Bristol and North Somerset, as well as headliner Eleanor Tiernan at Front Room.

Eleanor has featured on Stand Up For Live Comedy (BBC3), Comedy Central’s The Alternative Comedy Experience and has supported acts including Jason Manford, Jason Byrne and Reginald D. Hunter.

Other acts include Amy Mason and Rob Perry.

"I thought about what I was good at and having dabbled on the local open mic scene for the last couple of years, what I really know is good comedy when I see it," said Steph.

"I have therefore created a bill of fantastic local comedians, plus guest headliner Eleanor Tiernan, to create a night that both worn out parents and everyone else can go to for a good giggle whilst also raising some cash."

Tickets for the event will cost £15 and are avaliable from www.frontroomwsm.com. All funds raised will go to help replace dining tables and chairs, and improve their library at the education facility.

The doors will open at 7:30pm and will then run from 8pm to 10:30pm.
