Dominic Holland, that’s right, Spiderman’s dad, comes to Folkestone for the first time bringing his unique style of stand up to the FCOM


It was a long time passion of Pete who loved traveling to London to watch his comedy heroes and spent hours on the train traveling to and from great venues like the Comedy Store, The Camden Comedy Club, The Museum of comedy and Lee Hurst’s very own Backyard Comedy Club.

In a chance conversation one night, the owner of the Lanterns Club and Pete got together and Pete’s dream of finally bringing these stars to Folkestone finally began.
We now have the top comedians appearing at the club and asking to return.. Sean Meo, Jeff Innocent, John Newton all regular acts.. And with Lee Hurst adding to the line up of big names in the final few shows of 2017, it shows how far the club has come in our first year.
