FUNNY man Ross McGrane is back in town with his Funny Bunny Comedy Club this month, bringing with him three of the UK's favourite comedy circuit headliners.

Markus Birdman, Adam Bloom and Susan Murray will be wowing the crowds at the event on May 31, at Dick Devigne's in Southend.

Markus is a leader on both the UK and international live comedy circuits and regularly headlines at the coveted Comedy Store.

He has had sell out shows at the Edinburgh, Adelaide, Melbourne and New Zealand Comedy Festivals.

Since Adam Bloom set foot on the circuit over 18 years ago, he's produced countless sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival, broke box office records at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival and is regularly found topping the bill in the most prestigious comedy venues on the planet.

A familiar face on screen as well as the stage, Adam's illustrious career has seen him on Russell Howard's Good News, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week, The World Stands Up, Live At The Comedy Store, Comedy Lab and many more besides.

Meanwhile Susan has emerged as one of the best female stand-ups in the UK.
