Dereham Town is hoping to inject some laughter into Thursday nights with a new comedy club. 

The football club is set to launch 'Has It Come To This?', a monthly stand-up showcase featuring the finest talent from across the county. 

Starting from Thursday, February 10, the club will bring performers to Aldiss Park off Norwich Road, where the Magpies play their home games, and will be hosted by funnymen David Alfie Ward and Alex Oliver. 

Mr Ward is a comedian from London who now calls Norfolk his home. He has performed at some of the biggest comedy clubs around the world and is a regular guest on talkSPORT.
