Reliably informed

The Wit of Wallsend, Gavin Webster, was recently voted by his peers on the professional stand up circuit as Comedian’s Comedian but none of the fame and glory has gone to his head. Instead, he’s staying in the North East and firmly with his Geordie humour by hosting a series of monthly shows at the Live Theatre in Newcastle, Gavin Webster’s All New Northumbrian Assembly.

So what to expect from this Assembly? Orderly discussion and debating on issues? Why nor. More like expert local lampooning, moronic jokes, ludicrous slapstick set pieces, nicey nice comedy and also some aggressive anti-comedy, just in case you were getting a bit too comfortable. With musical set pieces, characters and sketches and help from the anarchic sketch group Funny Team, helping to provide a vital antidote to inflated arena comedy, this is a show not to be missed.

Gavin Webster’s All New Northumbrian Assembly comes to the Live Theatre, Newcastle on Thursday 12th February.
