FRESH from his starring role in pantomime as Buttons in this year’s Cinderella at The Playhouse, rising star Joe Rowntree will be back for an evening of stand up comedy.

In his latest show, Buttons Undone, Joe will muse on the hot comedy topics of parenting, swimming pool changing rooms, zips, his fear of Wetherspoons and why he quite likes wasps.
