Ace Lips Events Presents a Comedy Night for the Good Festival Comedy night.

MC for the Comedy Night is Legend from Hull, Sam Harland.

Sam Harland's unique, observational humour, is drawn from his working class roots. He is able to engage his audience in a warm, quick-witted and friendly manner. Sam's material is self-deprecating, ironic and honest, particularly in relation to his colourful past escapades. Known as the Recovering Comedian, Sam promises to bring the room and acts together for a great night of fun and laughter.
