A comedian from Twickenham has almost had the last laugh by beating more than 160 acts to a competition final.

Dave Green, who attended Orleans Park school and Richmond College, will get up on stage next month to give his best shot at becoming the Comedy Knights fresh comedian of 2014.

Mr Green, who describes his style as "darkly surreal one liners", has been on the comedy scene for three years and says he loves performing because comedy "offers an immediacy that other art forms don’t have".

The final of the Comedy Knights fresh comedian of 2014 takes place at the Forge, Camden, on Wednesday, September 17.
