COMEDY fans will have the chance to get a sneak-peek of two brilliant comedians' Edinburgh Fringe material at Haverhill Arts Centre this July.

Jon Richardson, famous for his BBC Radio 6 programme, will be seen on Saturday July 4 at 8pm. Jon currently hosts the Sunday mid-morning show on BBC6 Music, and was voted in a November 2008 issue of Q Magazine as one of the five top comedians to look out for in 2009.

Shappi Khorsandi, fresh from her recent appearances on Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow and Have I Got News For You, will perform on Saturday July 11, at 8pm.

She made her first appearance at Edinburgh in 2000, and Shappi's experiences of being an 'outside' and atheist, although assumed Pakistani Muslim, provide her with engaging comedy.

Both acts will perform with support acts, and tickets are £10 or £15 for both evenings. For more details or to book tickets, call the Haverhill Arts Centre box Office on 01440 714140.
