Fits and giggles as the Laughter Specialists visit the Rhodes Arts Complex in Bishop’s Stortford
THE Laughter Specialists will be dealing up a double dose of side splitting fun when they visit the Rhodes Arts Complex this month.
On Sunday October 17, the giggle hunters will be in town to entertain children of all ages with magic, songs, jokes, clowning, puppets and, most importantly, lots of joining in.
The show, funded by Intercounty and Labcraft, features two of the most popular local entertainers in Potty Patrick and Calamity the Clown as well as Billy Biscuit, Ginger the bear, song and dance group Spectrum – who are based at Dunmow Arts Centre – Edith Borthwick Special school and plenty of surprises.
There is even something for the adults, as top variety show Grim and Tonic provide late entertainment, while international George Michael tribute act Rob Lamberti will help you turn that frown upside down.
Potty Patrick, aka Patrick Jacobs, said: “We couldn’t think of a better way to raise money, to enable us to train new laughter specialists and visit sick children and those with special needs than putting on these shows full of top-class entertainment.”
