Newcastle is a pretty funny city. From the comedy clubs to the metro prices, there’s always something to have a good laugh about. But on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th October, Fingers and Fringe plan to make that good laugh become a great one with their Comedy Weekender, held at the Vertu Motors Arena (the home of Newcastle Eagles), and the event features some of Britain’s most witty and clever comedians.

The Saturday show will be hosted by Jarred Christmas with acts including Lost Voice Guy, Flo and Joan, Andy Parsons and more. Certain to be a highlight of the programme, Lost Voice Guy gained fans across the UK when he won Britain’s Got Talent in 2018. His comedy style is a unique one; having lost his speech due to cerebral palsy at six months old, his refreshing take on disability uses a voice synthesiser app.

The second show on the Sunday will be hosted by comedian Laura Lexx, known for her appearances on Mock The Week, with performances from Rachel Harris, Paul Sinha and more. For those of us that have our tea in front of the telly, The Chase’s Paul Sinha should be instantly recognisable, he’ll be gracing the North East with his presence after showcasing his skills in every major comedy club in the UK.
