Reliably informed

A pint-sized Geordie treasure is one way to describe local comedian Joby Mageean. Unique in his ability to make an audience laugh near constantly throughout a performance, he was the deserving winner of the Leicester Square Comedian of the Year award in 2016, English Comedian of the Year finalist of the same year, and was on Chortle’s comedian to watch list of 2017.

To see Joby perform is nothing short of a joy; he has a near iconic warmth that radiates through a room and you often feel more that you are laughing with a friend than being performed to by a comedian. The charismatic, clever and multi-faceted comic is bringing his newest creative endeavour, entitled Shanty Prince, to Newcastle’s home of comedy, The Stand, on Sunday 23rd June. The 5pm afternoon show is expected to exhibit Mageean’s arsenal of well-constructed jokes, brilliant musical components and the especial loveliness that makes Joby so likable. In this new show Mageean will take the audience on a journey as he recounts the tale of his life as a troubadour and heir to the Shanty Throne.
