White Christmas for Press Club lunch

Birmingham Press Club is making sure of a “White Christmas” this year - for Brummie comedian Andy White has been snapped up to provide the entertainment  at the Club’s Christmas lunch on 16 December

Andy is a regular performer at Birmingham’s Glee Club and his brand of wit, embracing observational and topical humour, combined with “digs” at his own mixed race background, has made him a firm favourite with audiences.

Andy “escaped” from a call centre to become a stand-up comic and his material – which can be clever, cheeky or just downright silly – has earned him appearances on television & radio and at theatres and clubs around the UK.

“Andy is forever receiving plaudits for being undeniably entertaining, so I think we are in for more than a few laughs,” said Press Club chairman Ed James.

Meanwhile, some lucky guests at the luncheon, which is being held at the International Convention Centre to mark the Club’s 150th anniversary, will get the opportunity to have a flying lesson in a light aircraft, courtesy of Take Flight Aviation – or spend a day out driving in the countryside in a classic car supplied by Great Escape Cars That’s if they are fortunate enough to buy a winning ticket in this year’s prize draw, which is in aid of The Lord Mayor’s Charity Appeal.
