FUNNYMAN Paul Eastwood returns to Clacton for an evening of hilarious entertainment tomorrow night.

The star of last year's Summer Season at the West Cliff is back for one night only.

After last summer's family-friendly shows, the comedian is now promising a "naughty night of stand-up".

"I had a great time doing 12 shows in Clacton last August," said Paul.

"This time I'm taking a more cheeky night to the theatre.

"It's a comedy spectacular. I've got two comedians with me and I'm going to do a bit in both halves so it's got a Live At The Apollo feel to it.

"There will be a lot of stand-up.

"We've got Wayne the Weird who is an out-there Tommy Cooper-like comedy magician with a lot of edge and comedy impressionist Danny Posthill.

"He was a finalist on Britain's Got Talent two years ago and is now doing very well on the comedy circuit.

"There will be a lot of fun, audience interaction and topical gags."

Paul has spent 20 years in the showbiz industry.

He says he doesn't do gimmicks. There are no songs or props - just his quick-fire wit.

The gagmeister has years of experience from cabaret to cruise ships, and theatre to TV warm-up, getting audiences in the mood on shows such as ITV's Loose Women.

He is well-known for appearing on Norfolk's Cromer Pier and at the Thursford Christmas Spectacular – Europe's biggest Christmas show.

Paul is looking forward to returning to Clacton.

"The West Cliff is a wonderful theatre to work in and my grandma lived in Holland-on-Sea so I know and love the area," he said.

Friday's show is suitable for over-16s and starts at 8pm.

Tickets are £16 from the box office on 01255 433344.
