Back on Friday 12th January 2018 with another fundraising show for Saddleworth Round Table
We held our first ever shows at The White Hart at Lydate and we still return occasionally. The White Hart has an enviable reputation for fine food and our ‘Bangers and Laughs’ evenings combine fine food with excellent comedy.
Friday 12th January sees us aiming to raise £3000 for local good causes in conjunction with Saddleworth Round Table.
Now best known to the world for his portrayal of ‘Joe’ in Ken Loach’s 2016 BAFTA winning film I, Daniel Blake, Newcastle’s Gavin Webster is 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 Lydgate debut.

Certainly no stranger to The White Hart is Justin Moorhouse. This highly regarded comedian 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.
