A venue which has only done live music before is hoping a new venture will be a barrel of laughs.

Real Time Music, which has a venue above the shop on Marsden Street, Chesterfield, is holding its first comedy gig on Thursday, October 8.

Owner Mark Stephenson said: “This is very new for us. For four years we have only done live music but we are looking forward to seeing what a different type of gig will do for us.”

The show will feature comedians who have appeared on BBC2 and BBC3 after the business was approached by one of the acts, Jared Shooter.

Mark said: “We are really excited , it’s always good to have firsts and what better way to start than this?”

Performing alongside Jared will be Seymour Mace, Josh Smith and Jon Pearson.

Tickets are £7 in advance or £9 on the door. For more information visit
