[quote]The Lone Star Comedy Club returns to the Tower Theatre on North Road at Shorncliffe Garrsion in Cheriton on Saturday September 27th.

The line up consists of THE AMAZING MR SMITH2, SHELAGH MARTIN3, compere TIERNAN DOUIEB4, plus a newcomers act.

THE AMAZING MR SMITH has been described as Monty Pythons answer to John Williams. His combination of mad inventions and brilliant acoustic guitar playing make him one of the funniest and most original entertainers around. He is the worlds leading eccentric guitarist with funny songs, parodies and props, who can play the Blue Danube on an instrument made entirely of condoms.

" Delightfully eccentric comic musician " - Time Out.

''...Mr Smith is absolutely mesmerizing to watch and side-splittingly funny. He can make music from anything, including contraceptives, and the duelling banjos was a great idea. Mr Smith quite rightly got applause after applause and two well-deserved encores....'' part of a review at

SHELAGH MARTIN is renowned for her crafted one-liners often surreal, sometimes brilliant, and frequently involving bizarre mental images of animals.

Sensational. I thought she was one of the funniest, and most refreshing female stand-ups I've seen and I wasn't alone. The audience followed her all the way on her increasingly surreal journey, and laughed their way through every minute of it. It,s a joy to watch the way her mind works. Class Chortle review


Gigging since 2003 after learning his trade on Dr Oliver Doubles stand-up course at the University of Kent, compere TIERNAN DOUIEB is quickly becoming known as a top MC and rising star on the circuit. With his fast paced energetic style, stupidly unpronounceable name and comedy topics ranging from dancing bears, being diabetic and sometimes Lionel Ritchie, Tiernan is now gigging all over the UK.

'Douieb was energetic, fast paced and his humour was full of kitch appeal and observations about the good and ill of modern British life.'

This is my site The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came here in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. This site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar + voting for best venues + things, and I hear it was a useful resource for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
