Carey's Comedy Club in Coventry plays host to another night of loaded and YAZOO sponsored laughs
After five regional heats and two semi finals, the eight comics have been chosen who will battle each other in London on the 6 December for the crown of our Search For A Star competition with YAZOO.

And the four finalists from last night’s semi-final at Careys in Coventry are Tom Toal, Kwame Asante, Matt Rees and Pete Beckley.

Toal’s gags about his mum dissing ex-girlfriends had the crowd of more than 100 rolling in the aisles, as did Matt Rees’ jokes about girls he tries to chat up.

Kwame Asante made it to the final with hilarious, self-depreicating humour about being an African going to Africa to help kids in poverty, but loaded’s favourite on the night was the cleary bonkers Pete Beckley and his creepy IT worker skit.

You can’t beat gags as simple as: “The server was down this morning, but I cheered it up in the afternoon.” Big thanks goes out to the other comics on the night, where subjects as obscure as panda porn, hoodies and zebra crossings made it a top night all round.

Onwards to the final in London!
