Gavin Webster World Tour 2018

Tuesday 2nd October 2018

Cult Geordie comedian of over 25 years Gavin Webster is finally doing a tour, a World tour to be exact. A massive influence on the stand up scene on Tyneside he’s decided to bring his guitar, ukulele, book of poetry and his barrow load of quick fire jokes and surreal routines along with his furious rants and throw them at audiences round the World. Well the world being North Yorkshire, Lowland Scotland, County Durham, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear but it’s still a World Tour in name. From the bloke who brought you Edinburgh shows called ‘The Sexist’s Sexist’, ‘Bill Hicks Wasn’t Very Good’, ‘Don’t Give Any Money To Comic Relief’ and the infamous ‘All Young People Are C**ts’ and someone who has a forthcoming online sitcom coming out at the beginning of next year called ‘I’ve Got A Job For You Gav’ you’d be mad to miss an hour of a Geordie stand up legend with full support.
‘You won’t see a show as palpably funny as this’- The Sunday Herald
‘Like a cross between Bill Hicks and Geoff from Byker Grove’- Ross Noble
‘A show that’s no nonsense yet simultaneously full of it, he’s like a comedy streetfighter, he’ll use anything at hand to land a blow’- Chortle

Sam Avery: The Learner Parent

Sunday 28th October 2018

Parenthood is a crafty beast. The second you master something it changes the game so you're rubbish at it again.
Stand-up comedian, viral blogger and bestselling author Sam Avery (aka The Learner Parent ) started his award-winning blog when his twin boys were born. A million nappies, Peppa Pig episodes and a head-full of hair loss later, he shares all the lows, highs and hilarious in-betweens of his experiences of first-time parenthood.
Sam's honest, messy account of wrestling with sleep deprivation and breast pumps - right through to his botched attempts at discipline and pathetic bids to stifle various toddler tantrums that definitely registered on the Richter scale - will have you testing your pelvic floor with laughter.
