When you think of the comedy scene in Newcastle, there are a plethora of places that jump to mind, but it’s unlikely that The Cathedral Church of St. Nicholas is one of them – until now.

The Cathedral of Comedy is a new event coming to Newcastle’s beautiful 14th Century Grade I listed Cathedral. Soon to be known as the hottest comedy joint in the city, the inaugural event takes place on Saturday 21st May and will also include local food vendors Dot Bagels and Bigfatdonutco and a bar.

The night will feature performances from some of Newcastle’s comedy veterans including Steffen Peddie, Anth Young, Kelly Edgar and Matt Reed, with the headline set coming from irresistible comic, David O’Doherty. The dishevelled Irish comedian will be bringing his absurd observations and ludicrous songs to the stage; having established himself through QI, Cats do Countdown and his fringe tours, the comedy heavyweight is the first in a series of quality bookings lined up for the 500 capacity venue. Run by Lee & David Promotions, the events will offer a unique way to experience one of the city’s iconic buildings, with future bookings including Phil Wang, Catherine Bohart, Larry Dean and Lou Sanders.

David O’Doherty, Steffen Peddie, Anth Young, Kelly Edgar and MC Matt Reed perform at Newcastle Cathedral on Saturday 21st May.
