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.
