“Smart, subversive comedy with pin-sharp observations.” The Herald

★★★★★ Mirror ★★★★ The Times ★★★★ The Telegraph ★★★★ Sunday Times




Britain’s Got Talent finalist Micky P Kerr has been hotly tipped for stardom Leeds-based comedian, musician and social commentator has been described as the bastard son of John Cooper Clarke and fuses together music, spoken word and comedy while keeping his tongue planted firmly in his cheek.

“Wins the audience immediately” ★★★★ Three Weeks “You absolutely nailed it!” Simon Cowell




A man who needs little or no introduction is Justin Moorhouse. This highly regarded Manchester comedian and presenter who has taken several comedy shows to the Edinburgh Fringe and toured the UK. In February 2015 Justin performed to over 200 000 people in a 15 night stage version of Channel 4’s Phoenix Nights. The critically acclaimed show at the Manchester Arena raised £5 million for Comic Relief. A natural affability endears Justin to any audience and an arsenal of tightly written material firmly hedges the bet.

November 16, 2017 by Juetron | 0 comments

Come and celebrate the New Year at the Upperthong Village Hall. We are hosting a New Year’s Eve party with a difference. Rather than celebrate the New Year at midnight – UK time, we’ll be celebrating the New Year at midnight – Madagascar time !!!

So you can enjoy the event with your children and will get them into be for a ‘semi’ reasonable bed time. We’ll be having party games, hot dogs, sweets, music etc. The bar will be open so the adults can start their own celebrations early.

£2.50 each for the event of the year.

 Be quick. Last year we had 120 attend this event with 110 people on standby. We could’ve filled the Village Hall twice !!!!

Upperthong Village Hall Laugh-a-Thong 6

May 3, 2017 by Juetron | 0 comments

On Friday 5th May Comedy returns to Upperthong Village Hall (UVH) for the sixth Laugh-A-Thong and, once again, we have secured another four fantastic acts, three of them performing in Upperthong for the very first time.

Our compere for the evening is a familiar face Pete Otway. He went down a storm @ the UVH when he supported Justin in January. He will introduce three great professional stand-up comedians.

Headlining the show will be Newcastle’s Gavin Webster. He is now best known to the world for his portrayal of ‘Joe’ in Ken Loach’s 2016 BAFTA winning film I, Daniel Blake. Gavin is also a vastly experienced comedian famed and respected by his peers for his uncompromising and unusual approach, hard edged routines, quick-fire pastiche pieces, moronic jokes and sardonic songs. Gavin’s contributions to stand up over the last twenty years were recognised when he was voted Best Live Stand Up by fellow comedians and promoters in the 2014 UK Comedy Awards and we’re looking forward to his Upperthong debut.

He will be ably supported by Musical comedian Mitch Benn (a star of Radio 4) & Bolton’s aspiring comedian Chris Kehoe.

Further details of the acts can be found on www.iwantacomedynight.com/upperthong-comedy-night

The tickets are now on sale for £12.50 from the email/phone number below (postal delivery is available). We have also been dragged screaming into the new millennium. Online tickets are available from www.wegottickets.com/event/399333. Payment can also be made by Paypal to the email address below.

Capacity is limited to a 100 & strictly on a first come, first served basis. The previous 3 Laugh-a-Thongs have all sold out so it is strongly recommended that you secure your tickets asap.

Doors open at 6.30pm before the show starts at around 8pm

This will be a fantastic event, we hope you can join us. Come and have a great night & help raise funds to support the village hall.
