Tonight (Wednesday) sees Mansfield Building Society and NCF Comedy presenting a comedy night in the town.

It is being held to raise funds and awareness for local charity Jigsaw Support Scheme.

This special comedy night will take place at The Late Lounge above And Why Not Bar on Leeming Street, Mansfield, from 8pm.

Jigsaw Support Scheme is a local Nottinghamshire charity which supports the independence of local people at home. They work alongside disabled, vulnerable and elderly adults who are at threat of losing their home, their independence or their health. 

The event will feature local comedian Jon Pearson as MC plus support from Rob Coleman, Ben Briggs, Thomas Rackham, Alex Hylton, Hannah Sylvester and headliner Barry Dodds.

Barry has been a strong favourite on the comedy circuit for years and brings his unique brand of disarming wit and wry and down-to-earth observational humour.

He has been a finalist in various high profile competitions such as Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy Search,
