Impressionist Rory Bremner and home-grown comedian teenage Jack Carroll are set to raise the laughs at a business dinner next month.
The two have joined the line-up for the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce annual dinner, which takes place on Thursday, October 17, at the Cedar Court hotel, Ainley Top.
Rory is known for his impressions of prominent British politicians, his appearance as a panellist on Mock the Week and his satirical sketch shows. Jack, who attends Brighouse High School, was runner-up in ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent last year.
Andrew Choi, executive director of the Lockwood-based chamber, said: “We’re delighted to announce Britain’s Got Talent finalist Jack Carroll and nationally-recognised comedian Rory Bremner as our annual dinner speakers and evening entertainment.
“They’ll both bring a touch of laughter to the occasion – which after another tough year for many businesses is sure to be well-deserved. Jack, along with Jacob Hill, our business speaker, is young and ambitious – great for the enterprise theme of this year’s dinner showcasing home-grown Yorkshire talent.
“And we’re sure that Rory will end the evening on a high note.”
The event, compered by BBC Look North’s Clare Frisby, will be the key evening dinner during Kirklees Business Week, which also features the Kirklees Business Conference to be held on Wednesday, October 16, at Huddersfield’s John Smith’s Stadium.
