A TRIO of rib-tickling treats is lined up for the Rondo Theatre this month.On July 26, Good Sense of Humour, in association with Noel Gay, will present Howard Read and Andrew O'Neill.The double-bill stand-up comedy night is set to be a jaw-dropping, side-splitting evening as both comics are regulars to the circuit.Perrier Award nominee Howard Read has worked as far afield as Dubai, Iceland, Aspen and Melbourne and has a trademark style of bemused silliness. Howard has emerged as one of the brightest and most inventive young comedians in the country with a comic array ranging from the surreal to the silly. A committed vegan, heavy metal fan and anarchist, his brain doesn't function like most. The second part to the double-bill is critically acclaimed Andrew O'Neill. He has now departed from last year's dark subject matter and will introduce audiences to five-year-old David. David is undergoing experimental drug treatment and hears two voices, a stand-up comedian called Andrew and a slightly camp northern voice claiming to be 'The Universe'. Andrew mixes his demented stand-up with deeper reflections on religion. On July 27, Rondo favourite Robin Ince returns to tread the boards. Ricky Gervais' human punch bag has been reading too many books and watching too many old documentaries so he has big ideas, but is not quite sure what they are. Robin has travelled to Bath to preview his new show Robin Ince Knew This Would Happen and discusses those pressing questions in life such as how do you remain individual in a world that wants you to join a gang? The regular to Never Mind the Buzzcocks and The Personality Test is set to have audiences rolling in the aisles. Tickets are £8.50 for July 26 and £7.50 for July 27 and both performances start at 8pm.For more details visit www.rondotheatre.co.uk or call 01225 463362.
