Students take to the comedy stage
LIFE is a laugh for three Margate students who are building their reputation on the Thanet comedy circuit.
After fine-tuning their acts at Margate's Hartsdown Technology College, performing arts students Steve Warrington, Blake Wright and Lewis Colley have begun to appear together and in solo spots in gigs around east Kent.
Tomorrow (Saturday) they will bring their acts to the stage at the Tom Thumb Theatre in Cliftonville as part of the venue's regular comedy night.
Steve said: "The college was a fantastic starting point for us all and we have been given so much support."

All three comics take their jokes seriously and put in hours of scripting and rehearsal to get their timing and delivery spot on, although there is always room for a little ad-libbing.
Steve, 18, said he prefers crazy off-the-wall comedy, while 19-year-old Blake is a traditional stand-up with some near-the-knuckle jokes and Lewis, 18, presents his persona of Mad Dog Magoo delivering deadpan observations of life in the character of an escaped asylum inmate.
Adults-only stand up comedy is at the Tom Thumb Theatre tomorrow from 8pm. Tickets cost £10, with £5 concessions on the door.
