A musician is teaming up with a comedian who works on the famous Late Show with David Letterman.

Singer and songwriter Simon Lyon, from Braintree, met Eddie Brill at the Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida and kept in touch on Facebook.

When Simon put some of his songs online, Eddie suggested organising a comedy and music show, which will be coming to the Cramphorn Theatre, Chelmsford, this Saturday.

A Night of Comedy and Music with Eddie Brill and Guests will also feature local comedians, Andy Poole and Tony Marrese.

The show starts at 8pm. Ages 16-plus only, strong language.
