Comedy returns to Upperthong Village Hall on Friday 6th October and, once again, we have secured another four fantastic acts!
MC Justin Moorhouse introduces Dan Nightingale, Simon Donald and Jack Campbell
Fully seated. Strong language and adult themes. Acts subject to change. Over 18’s Advance tockest strongly advised.
First time in Upperthong for Dan Nightingale worked his way through university as the sound man at a comedy club but being actually on the stage looked like so much more fun..
Dan mixes cutting observation and raucous gags with high energy audience work and a natural playfulness that engages any crowd. Original, creative and totally unpredictable. Dan was voted ‘Best MC’ in the 2015 UK Comedy Awards by fellow comedians, bookers and promoters

In 1979 Simon Donaldd co-founded Viz! from a bedroom in Newcastle. It went on to become something of a British publishing phenomenon and upset all the usual suspects. Although no longer involved with Viz! Simon will always be known as the man who gave us Sid The Sexist.
In 2005 Simon started performing stand-up, beginning to appear on stage as characters not dissimilar to the ones he had been drawing a few years earlier. previously talked about in his routine. Perhaps the best known of these is Barry Twyford, a market researcher with some highly inappropriate questions that reduce audiences to tears of laughter. As well as appearing at comedy clubs across the nation he has become a regular fixture at the Edinburgh fringe with not only his characters but also Simon Donald’s School Of Swearing. When not performing comedy Simon divides his time between London and Newcastle as a TV presenter, punter and all round media whore.
