Top comic’s world record attempt

TOP comic Neil Mullarkey is inviting comedy lovers in the Dearne to be part of a hilarious attempt to create a new world record.

The Comedy Store Players founder is hoping to create the world’s biggest comedy improvisation team at a unique show at Building 21, Elsecar Heritage Centre, on August 10 from 6pm.

The free event is part of the nationwide London 2012 Festival, and will feature improvised sketches with Nell and fellow improv comic Richard Vranch.

Neil said: “I’ve performed on numerous occasions in Yorkshire but it’s my first time in Barnsley so I hope the local people will want to come along and get involved in this world record attempt.”
