Fledgling comedian Jared Shooter was hailed a shooting star when he took the runner’s-up spot in a competition.

Nearly 18 months on, he is returning to the Winding Wheel for his first show since that nail-biting Crooked Smile contest.

Teenager Jared’s act revolves around life experiences, relationships and observational humour.

He will be performing as part of the Spotlight Comedy Club’s monthly show on Thursday, February 20.

Topping the bill will be Duncan Oakley whose telly credits include Channel 4’s Slam and ITV’s Comedy Cafe. He is a regualr guest on Radio 4’s Shappi Talk as well as a sought afterfestival act.

An internationally renowned performer, Duncan is known for being very naughty and really quite rude, at least on stage; but his cheerfully childish behaviour belies his credentials as a seasoned professional show-off.

Rachel Fairburn completes the line-up, with a set detailing the daily woes of a woman who believes melancholia is in her genes.

Tickets £11, £9 and £6 (student); call 01246 345222 or www.chesterfieldtheatres.co.uk
